Should of Thought of Something Else

I believe this was the second time I (along with Tristyn) drove up to Preston, Idaho (according to the set of pictures on my hard drive) in April of last year. While on the way up there, I saw this bus. I started busting up laughing because of the first two words they chose to call the bus line.

See, I Care

I had to work on Wednesday, so the first thing I do was buy a shamrock for a $1, wrote my new web address on it and hung it up in check stand 1. Not only did it possibly help folks see the web address (how's it going folks!), but whenever I asked folks if they would like to buy a shamrock, I would just point to it. It helped, I sold 58 of them in a six hour shift.

Sorry about the quality of the picture, but I had to take it with my cell phone when I went into work on Thursday to pick up my paycheck.

As for the stains on the yellow backdrop... That is from tape. We really need to clean that up. (lol)

Yes, I Know

People have been telling me about this movie that just came out called, "Date Movie"...

The reason why everyone has been telling me about it, is that some actor spoofs Napoleon Dynamite in the movie. So, as soon as I get a moment on one of my days off, I will go and see it.

The Damage

After getting off of (her) work, Tristyn came over to my house and saw what damage had been done to my car. She did not think that it was that bad as when she originally read my blog... So, she suggested that I post a picture of what damage had been done.

Looks like I am going to have to pry it back so that I can get to and from work without it driving me crazy from the wind...

Have I Ever Told You How Much I Hate Snow

Thanks to this little snow storm that the Salt Lake valley received yesterday and over night, and because the people in my household bitch when I park on the driveway, I now have over 4 to 6 inches of snow slowly melting off of my car. But that is not the bad part, as to why I am writing...

This morning, I was told to wake up (after being asleep for less than an hour) and to move my car into the garage. But, because of the snow storm, my car and the driveway was covered in snow. I was also told to shovel the driveway. Because I parked on the street, I noticed that I couldn't get my door fully open. Ice had frozen over the fender and door, which was not visible at first. So after, I had to force it open, it caused that to totally f*ck up my driver-side fender and my door some more. There goes most of my tax refund and idea of getting a new car in order to fix this. Then trying to get up a driveway that is on a hill because someone didn't think this through back when, I peeled my front tires out trying to get up an icy driveway, just because someone in my family has to get to work. This caused me to slide the back end of my car backwards, so my car was then parked in an even path with the sidewalk. After shoveling some more, I was able to get my car into the garage.

All this on my day off and after only sleeping less than one hour since waking up at 7AM yesterday morning...

So, have I told you that I hate snow?

"Kip, I Reckon You Know a Lot About Cyberspace..."

As long as I have known her, Tristyn has never really been a computer hacker. She may know a lot about computers, but she never knew or did much with or in the hacking side...

That was the case... until Saturday evening.

It turns out that she purchased a wireless network card, installed it and is receiving an internet connection located somewhere near her house. All this time I have been bugging her to get her parents to switch from, ugh.... AOL, to something faster, when in reality, she really didn't need to. And the best part is, I got her to install Firefox... Yes!

Welcome to the club Tristyn. You'll find that hacking has it's perks...

How Sweet It Is!

Yesterday, the 9th, Tristyn and I drove up to Idaho to get more lottery tickets. However, we first stopped by the Preston Chamber of Commerce to (double check) on the date for the 2006 Napoleon Dynamite Festival. However, the lady who runs the commerce was out for just a moment, so we walked down State Street and checked out a couple of the shops. Sad to say, I actually bought something from the Deseret Industries. It was just three CD's though. lol

So we walked back to the C. of. C., and officially found out that it is set for July 7th and 8th. I also bought a new t-shirt and keychain while I was in there. I do not know how many shirts this makes of my collection...

After leaving the C. of C., we drove down to the Plaza Motel so I could make reservations for the festival. I tried to reserve the room Jon Heder (Napoleon) stayed in while the movie was being filmed back in 2003, but the city of Preston had already thought ahead of time and reserved it before they announced the festival date. Why? Guess who might be showing up at this years festival as a "special guest"?! But the lady at the front desk told me that I could have the room Efren Ramirez (Pedro) stayed in. However, if Jon Heder does not show up, she said that she would let me have that room instead! Sweet!!!

It's Been a While

Well, it's been a while, so here is another one of JoAnna's questions...

"What is the sweetest thing you have ever done for a girl?"
iPod Mini, trip to Utah, mail packages every month (average), birthday flowers...

Oh, you said one.... Hmm... Been a (hopefully) good friend.

Way To Go, Annie!

Although this not her first 5K (to my knowledge), Annie completed her first 5K under the training she has been receiving from Channel 2 (KUTV) sponsored trainers. She beat her old time by 10 minutes! Come on people, send me those comments!!!

I have just posted the video clips to this past week (Week 4) on Annie's web page.

Just A Little Pointer

I just want everyone out there to know that whenever something in my blog has a line through it, for example, that item or blog entry is no longer valid and/or has been proven false.

To help give you an bigger example, if you check out an entry that I posted last month, you will notice I placed a strikeout through the entire blog entry because someone (in this case, JoAnna) made a comment that stated that she checks out that specific page (and watched the video clips). So I then changed my mind on what I was originally going to go through with and re-posted the page. So now the page is back up. See what your comments can help do?

Even though you may only read each blog once after I post them, you really should scroll back down the blog and just skim each entry for strikeouts (per say) every week... Heck you might want to start skimming other months if you have the time.
