Slap Bet Commissioner

Slap Bet Commissioner

Feeling too lazy to set up my DSLR again today, but not quite as lazy as yesterday, so today’s picture comes from my point and shoot camera. Today’s shirt is awesome. And LEGEN – wait for it – DARY!

It comes from possibly the best episode of How I Met Your Mother. If you’re not watching the show, you should be. You should absolutely watch this episode, but probably not before watching the whole series leading up to it. One of the best shows on TV.

Purchase location: Glarkware
Purchase date: July 6, 2008.

Let’s go to the Mall!

Fracking Toaster

Today’s shirt is for the last half of the last season of Battlestar Galactica, which starts up again tonight. If you haven’t watched the series… well, you really should. Hopefully they can end it well. I have confidence that they will.

Purchase location: Glarkware
Purchase date: October 17, 2008, though I wanted it for a long time before that. It had been sold out forever, and they finally reprinted it.

Pleepleus!

Today’s shirt comes from the show Three Sheets on the now defunct MOJO HD. Pleepleus is a stuffed monkey that traveled around with the host. He has his own MySpace page.

Purchase location: MOJO HD store
Purchase date: June 2, 2008.

Pleepleus stuffed monkey bought at bbtoystore.com on June 14, 2008.

It’s nice to be able to go through all my old email to find these exact dates.

I’m using this challenge as an excuse to learn how to use my flash, which I’ve had for too long and don’t really know how to use. Hopefully, the quality of the pictures will get better over the course of the month.

Day 10

I got my Arduino starter kit, and a few other random pieces with it, today. I had it hooked up and downloaded one of the sample programs within a few minutes. Seems fairly easy to use. Now I just have to come up with something to use it for…

I’ve really got nothing else today, again. Posting every day is difficult.

Does anyone else think this is hilarious?

A post!

I haven’t had any sort of real post here for quite a while, though I’m sure no one really noticed.

Most of my time lately has been spent watching Stargate SG-1. I bought the DVDs for all but the last season a year and a half ago, and finally started watching them a week and a half ago. I should be done by the end of the week. That’s a whole lot of TV, but it’s a good show. The weekend before I started, the Stargate movie was on Universal HD, and watching it pushed me into wanting to watch the whole series.

I actually managed to get some poker in this weekend, too, at a pretty good home game Saturday night. It’s the second time I’ve been there. I didn’t cash the first time, but this time I won. It was a two table tournament, ten handed. $20 buyin, $200 for first place. It’s very well run, and has a good structure with 25 minute levels. I didn’t win my first hand until the middle of the third level, over an hour in. I didn’t get a single pocket pair until we were already in the money, with four players left. It was pocket kings. I got kings again, and then aces to knock out the third place finisher, within the next 20 minutes. I finally won when all the money went in on a 653 flop, and I had J5. My opponent had Q8, and turned an 8. The river was a J. The really big hand for me was quite a bit earlier, when I won a four-way all-in (with a good amount of other dead money in the pot, too) with AJ. I was against QJ, K8, and A6. I flopped trip jacks, and no queen came out to bust me. That hand finally put me in decent position after I had been limping along all night. It was a fun tournament, and I expect I’ll continue to play in it.

Yesterday was an attempt at a fantasy baseball draft, and it didn’t go well. There were a bunch of issues with the draft, specifically the keepers. After the first round, almost half of which were supposed to be keepers, took almost an hour and a half, I just gave up and left. I wasn’t in the greatest mood when it started, and it was way too frustrating to figure out my picks given the problems we were having, so it was better for my sanity to just leave. I won the league last year, but don’t expect to do much of anything this year. I don’t know that I’ll even pay attention to it at all. In my other fantasy league, which drafts Wednesday, I pretty much have no shot because the keeper rules are weighted to give the better teams a huge advantage. Given my team, I don’t see any way I can have a player worthy of a first round pick, possibly ever again. Any time I spent preparing for the drafts seems like such a waste. I may just let that other league auto-draft as well, instead of trying to draft from the bowling alley. I don’t really care about it anymore, and really should have left that league this year.

I’m not really into the whole model kit building thing, but this looks kinda awesome. I doubt I’ll get it, though.

I Will Rock Your Face!

In honor of last night’s full lunar eclipse, I finally got myself one of these:




[Bah! Click through from RSS readers for the embedded video here.]

Also, I took some pictures of the eclipse last night. Didn’t get anything terribly good.


Lunar Eclipse

We are bored.
