Lack of Updates
Sorry about the slow state of blog entries around here. I haven't been feeling so hot one way or another for about a week or so, and I had a pretty rough cold last week. I got rid of that by sleeping for 12 hours straight, so that was good, but since then I've just still been feeling pretty crappy in general with a lot of low level headaches. Man, I'm getting another one right now just thinking about it. So, when you're not feeling too good, blogging kind of takes a low priority. Ergo, no updates for a week.
Anyway, on to THE GREAT ICE STORM OF '05. Deciding that I'd rather not be stuck freezing in my apartment, I drove home on Friday (Happy Birthday Jack) and bunkered down at home, where the food is always better. Indeed, it snowed and got iced over, but mostly melted by Sunday. So, no need to panic too much.
Back at school, I had some mixed results on Ebay. I won a lot of old Tiger LCD games for $12, but got sniped on some old Gamepro mags from the early 90's. Well, that's just how it is, Ebay can be a ruthless place sometimes.
Last night was "Lutzville", the yearly campout for Cincinnati basketball game tickets. After the great "Freezing my ass off" of 2003, I swore never to camp out for tickets again. I did stop by though to hang out and partake in some of the festivities, however. The student activites group on campus did a pretty good job of making it a fun time- there was music, video game tournaments, freebies, and they even kept the Pizza Hut open late. So, good for them. And to Jason and all those who braved the elements, we salute you.
Are you ready for some hot executive branch action tonight?!? It's the State of the Union address, and apparently the hot topic is going to be "Saving Social Security". Sadly, I don't think I can count on the Bush Administration to save much except the bottom lines of their wealthy donor class. Remember folks, in politics as well as business, buyer beware!
