Day`s Off, I love them

So next week I was doing a course which would have meant that I was starting work on Monday, but now I`ve been bumped from the course till later so I get Monday and Tuesday off as well. SWEEEEET, I will hold them to sending me to the course though. Still I have Mary & Al here for 3 nights and possibly Clare for 1.

So today was taking Adele to have some routine tests done at the hospital(Don`t worry all just normal stuff). So whilst she went and did that, I went searching for Miami Ink on DVD, I saw it at JB Hifi for $60 for the first 6 collections which are normally $30 each but I was too slow and missed it, But then I found it at Dick Smith PowerHouse :
Sorry DSE you have no DVD`s on your Website, so JB gets the link this time(Click the pic for a link). Both Adele and I are huge Miami Ink fans, we used to sit in hotel rooms and watch Foxtel just so we could see it, whenever we went away, so I downloaded most of them but there were some that weren`t available and we decided that we would just buy the DVD`s. So that`s what we`ll be doing today, watching Miami Ink.

Now I seem to get visitors here that hit the video`s so here we go :
Creationists sh*t me, so to show how ridiculous it is :

- But I suppose if you want to believe in it, go for it, just do not try and push it on me or anyone else.

Swine Flu Pic :

Busy Weekend

Busy this weekend. Shopping in Civic yesterday, bought my first comic in 10 years from Impact comics, Jim Butcher`s The Dresden Files : Welcome to the Jungle, It`s a Hardcover colation of a 4 part comic, The Dresden Files is a series of Novel(and a short lived TV show) about a wizard(Much better than Harry Potter), currently they are releasing 4 part comic versions of the novels, so i`ll be grabbing these every few months.

Today our internet rolled over so no more throttling and we are back to full speed. We went to Injoy at Gold Creek Village to have brunch with Adam and Natalie and our God-Daughter Haley, which we enjoyed as we are so busy lately we don`t see them nearly as much as we would like to. We finally got to give her, her christmas and birthday presents, which gives you an idea of how busy we are. We then came home and did grocery shopping for the fortnight and just got back from visiting Adele`s Great Aunt. We took smelly Ellie with us which Aunty Elaine seemed to enjoy. We then took smelly for a walk.

This fortnight my parents come down for the weekend as well as my sister Clare and her husband Shane(we assume he`s coming) Clare is being admitted at the Supreme Court so she can practice law(Time to go stir up some trouble and test her skills out).

So now that`s all out of the way, what have I found this week :
Swine Flu Photo :

- This was quite cool.

Anyone know anyone who still uses shower curtains :
I saw Terminator Salvation last week. Not bad, not great, I enjoyed it alot more than Terminator 3 though. So all up, Good work McG.

Alright, time to go forage. Goodnight all.

First Day Off

Well, I haven`t been motivated to do anything today(well besides sleep a bit). So I thought i`d do a quick blog, hasn`t been much happening to update you this week, we`re off to Sydney this weekend to visit Adele`s friend Gemma and her husband Sam & their daughter Natalie who you`ve all heard about on Adele`s Blog. So we`re staying in Parramatta, time to get the GPS out again cause I got no idea.

So what`s new this week :
Tetris Turns 10
Click the pick above for a link to a page with 10 interesting tid-bits on Tetris. All I remember is Kirsty and Mary playing this damn game for hours, I never really got into it(or was it I was never real good at it ;)).

The Future of Flash Memory is e-SATA/USB keys.
Click the photo for a link to the Japanese supplier, unfortunately my kanji is a little rusty so you`ll have to translate yourself.

Mandatory Swine Flu Pic :
Just when I thought Swine Flu pics were getting hard to find, I`ve found more for future blogs

New "Search Engine" Technically its a "computational knowledge engine" but in effect you can ask it questions. I`ve got some that I`ve seen entered in that amused me :
  • How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood
  • meaning of life
  • are you skynet
  • hello
  • what is your name
Seems pretty cool, you can experiment around with it.

So whilst we`re on search engines as such : Bing.

As usual click the image for a link, this is Microsoft`s latest crack at Google, personally I`m sticking with Google.

Now E3 is currently going on, new stuff out Beatle`s Rockband, New Wii Motion Plus controller, but what I think is the grand announcement is Project Natal from Microsoft :

This is gonna rock, all you people who bought Wii`s and PS3`s are feeling pretty sick right now aren`t ya.(Well Yes I do own all 3 so I didn`t technically make a choice)
For all my E3 news I personally follow IGN and Kotaku for all my E3 news, as well as my standard Tech Blogs : Gizmodo and Engadget.

Now at the Google I/O conference they made an announcement about a new product called Google Wave You can watch the video below but essentially it`s what Email should have been, looks cool will have iPhone and Android compatability, so Awesome, can`t wait.

Couple of new movie trailers for you all :

Moon, Sam Rockwell, good actor, this looks like a good thriller coming out.

For Kirsty, Mary and Adele : New Moon :

I tweeted this the other day, but Adele missed it, so I thought i`d put it up here for you.

Toy Story 3 :

What`s not to love about a new Pixar movie, I`m REALLLY looking forward to Up. Let me guess you don`t know what that is, well here :

Now the new comedy I want to see is called The Hangover :

The scene with Mike Tyson cracks me up.

Anyway, better go see what life is doing whilst i`ve been doing this. Till next time. Bye.
