Tuesday already?? And countdown to moving

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

Work is crazy busy. So yesterdays post was forgotten. So here is a recap. Monday night I went to Biddy’s and shot darts with the boys. I shot great! Until I got drunk, then I shot not so good…. Anyway it was fun times.

Boddy's Board

During the weekend we kept on packing and went to Di’s Parents house. I had a great time there.

Alayna helped me a lot last night with packing up some books and other things. It’s amazing to me that I barely remember being that small. But what is great is that Alayna can take an empty cardboard box and a roll of tape and use her imagination to create a “magic bridge”. That is the best part about being young. Your imagination is so pure. THen you get old and it goes by bye…..

Don’t grow up Alayna…. Ever

Eric is dumb

That moving is gonna suck!

Seriously. I got a bunch of boxes and starting to look around and see how much crap we really have. Living in one apartment for 5 years you really accumulate a lot of “shit”. Damn this is gonna suck. And I have to learn to take pictures that aren’t so blurry!

Air Car?

Air Car

The Air car is coming, and it gets 100 MPG. It uses compressed air to run, and at higher speeds (top speed around 90MPH) it uses a gas/air mixture. Sounds too good to be true? Some people are saying YES.

But I would love to try out an air powered car….. Imagine pumping your CAR with the bicycle pump?

DAMN. Better than 4 bucks a gallon though. Happy Wednesday, work is crazy and I am moving in less than 2 weeks, so very little time for blogging. Damn responsibility!

New Cell phone, new apartment (house).

Monday, August 11th, 2008

Two New things this weekend. First is the easy part, I got a new phone. I had a RAZR for the longest time, and it was breaking really fast. So I decided being a geek and all to get the LG Dare from Verizon. Pretty sweet so far. The GPS rules.

Dare

2nd thing I got is a new apartment! We are renting a house in Garden City. It’s a really nice clean NEW place. Pretty excited about it. We don’t know when we are moving, but I am thinking Sept 1st or Setp 15th.

Cheers

Friday!

Today is Friday, which is awesome. I am going out drinking tonight!

Yesterday my subway car was stuck at 59th street Lexington. So Instead of waiting for the MTA to fix the emergency brake, I decided to walk over the 59th street bridge. Took about 20 minutes, and I snapped two pictures:

This one is about half way through looking down at the FDR.

This one is looking back at manhattan from roughly the same spot, maybe a bit lower.

anyway work has been nothing but crazy, but it’s friday, see you at biddys!

Dart Practice begins?

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

home dart board

Last night after the wife and kids went to bed, I decided to practice. It was nice to throw at home again, but there was definitely some rust. I want to get back to 3 times a week at home practicing and maybe once a week out at the Bar shooting against other people.

My biggest problem is sometimes when I am practicing at home, I feel as if it’s hurting my game rather than helping, especially with doubles and bullseye practice. I started my usually routine. I left the standard “low” so next time it will be easy to beat my stats. I think my lowest 501 game was 25 darts….

Highest score was 140. Most bullseyes was 3. Keep on practicing! Plus being tired as hell didn’t help, you need to be in the right state of mind, or practice will just be a wast of time!

Shoot well

Hump Day!

Feels nice that it’s Wednesday. Since I had monday off that is. I hope the rest of the week goes fast. Been getting up at 530am because of that little bundle of joy, Baby Eric……

Parenting is “fun”. 🙂
