Henderson

So it turns out I spent the weekend in Henderson, NV with my girlfriend. She is a coach for CCSD, and today (Monday), I am also chilling/hanging out with her at work. Turns out this is relatively boring. However, it’s okay. I found things to do. Such as sit here, filling up her browser history with weird entries.

Heh. Well, I’m being good. Everything so far has been related to things like band, work, etc.

I also took a bit of time and helped by transferring this “Fluency Practice” document to MS Word in order to print for better usability. She told me that I can now hole-punch everything in the front office, but it’s hard to know where the front office even is, let alone where the hole punch is. I’m sure I can ask the front desk secretary though. I mean, why the heck not?

But you know me. Wandering around an elementary school by myself, armed with nothing but a visitor’s name tag is a bit daunting.

SECONDLY, this weekend has been awesome. We didn’t do much outside. Sushi and Dim Sum, but other than that, it’s been chill at home. And yet, we have had an AMAZING weekend.

Coming back next month for the VNV Nation concert will be fun, albeit short, and then her coming out two weeks after for Christmas will also be awesome. I’m glad I stayed the extra day, though. Would have hated to go home today, let alone at all, though you know at some point it has to happen.

Now let’s see about that hole punch so that I don’t waste her ENTIRE afternoon…

Oh wait…she came back, finished with her meetings, and now we’ll be introduced to the front desk lady and figure things out as far as punching holes goes.

Heading down to Mississippi in a day (actually, more like 18 hours) to visit friends. Everyone thinks we’re crazy, going at a time like this, when it’s all hot and stuff, but we felt we needed to get it in before school started. Actually, it’s so close to that deadline that they were planning to start school right in the middle of our trip, before we had planned it of course. Well, they’ve probably rethought, so we’ll have a great time seeing them anyway.

On another note, ever heard of Pivot Stickfigure Animator? Me neither, until last week when I saw a couple Youtube videos showing stickmen running around. Apparently, it’s a program entirely dedicated to animating stick-men!! Pretty neat-o. I sure like it. It’s a bit tough to get good at though. I’ve gotten a couple decent videos out of it, as they show silouettes of the previous frame. Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.geocities.com/peter_bone_uk/pivot.html. Personally, I’d go for the 1.3 Beta version, as samples you find on the web are not always compatible with the regular one. However, the beta has a stupid warning every time you open the program which is a text file warning you of how this program might not work because it’s a beta. Well, I think that right there is a beta bug that can use some fixing. Put a “Don’t show this again” checkbox or something.
