Finally, an update!

Well, it's been a little while since I've been out to my blog to write anything and seeing how it is 10 degrees with a -9 degree windchill outside right now and I don't want to go outside for any reason, why not update my blog with new information.
First, I just want to say a little something about the murder of Dimebag Darrell, which I'm sure everyone knows about by now. Like most other people who have an opinion on the subject, I was very shocked and upset when I heard about the incident on the Columbus news. I have been a Pantera fan since Cowboys From Hell, mostly due to my late brother, and have all of their albums and some of the guys side stuff like Down. If you didn't know me or my brothers, to look at me you probably wouldn't peg me as a Pantera fan (if you even knew who they were before this happened). I mean, 15 years ago, if you said someone was a fan of Pantera you probably got a mental picture in your head of what that person would look like, and it most likely wasn't a picture of an African American kid from an advanced degree educated family in Ohio who wanted to major in Architecture. But, anyway, Pantera still has some of the best, hard hitting music and Dimebag was a great big part of what made their stuff so good with his amazing guitar skills. Put together with the rest of the guys (Phil, Rex and Vinnie) they had no equal to me. So, if you have some Pantera, Down, Damageplan or anything else that they touched, keep it playing.
Now, I know I'm not the only one who thinks this, but it does not seem like it should be December 19th already...and I still haven't sent out my Christmas cards (so if you get yours late, and you most likely will, I appologize in advance). I did, however, have time to treat myself to a gift for myself, upon which I am typing this blog. :) About once a year I get a real itch to increase my technology inventory and since I moved and have a much bigger space, I decided to set up a wireless network in my house and buy a new laptop. So, I am enjoying my Dell Inspiron 8600 and really enjoying using it to wirelessly websurf and access my files on my desktop. Usually, I am entertained by little things, but every once in a while it's the pricey things that make me happy. And since I'm single I may as well spend my money on the things that make me happy. What's the point of it if I don't?
Well, now that I've been typing, I guess there's not much new that's really going on in my life. Pretty boring.
I did find out that a good friend, Cara, is now engaged to be wed though. So that's a good thing. It'll be yet another friend married though. *sigh* I'm starting to even more left out... kinda sucks.
Oh well.
In other news, it has been announced that Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 is currently being developed! This is big news to me and a couple of my friends because we have been playing, and loving, C&C Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge for a number of years and, even though they are timeless classics and always fun, a new game using a more developed graphics engine will be absolutely awesome. Can't wait for it and hopefully, it won't be delayed as much as Halo 2 was.
Well, now I'm hungry and want to watch Earthsea on Sci:Fi, so I'll be saying goodbye.
