Some More About Me

I spend my days doing a range of things really.  Sometimes it’s hours of Mass Effect or Starcraft.  Other times I’m just sleep. Sometimes I just want to watch Glee from the couch.

I’ve built both a blueprinted Datsun racing engine and a desktop computer. It keeps telling me that I may be the victim of counterfeiting even though I remind it that I’m the perpetrator, and it’s the victim.  I decided I would put some old USB HDD’s to use and made a RAID5 on a Pentium4 running Ubuntu Server.  There have been days that I read post after post on Android forums about rooting my HTC Incredible.

While I believe fully in the philosophy of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” I certainly have trouble actually sticking to it.  I have an especially hard time convincing myself to leave my .conkyrc alone.
 At work I alternate between lining up text boxes on PowerPoint and spending the day in SQL Hell. I managed to get a decent job despite a BA Spanish. I did make it into the Alpha Mu Gamma honor society.  I'm not sure how that happened, but I'm going to say that I actually had anything to do with it.

I prefer Star Wars to Star Trek and the Stones to the Beetles. I have a hard time deciding who is my super hero alter-ego - Tony Stark or Norrin Radd. I totally oppose Hero Registration and plan to marry Carol Danvers.  I still have a collection of Hotwheels and play with Legos.

There was a point in my life where I spent a few days in Iraq, by a few I mean 738 to be exact.  Those weren't the best days of my life, but certainly weren't the worst either.  I feel like I've paid my dues. There are some things you learn, some adaptations you make, and a sort of person you become over there.  For what it's worth, I learned those things, adapted, and became that person.  When I came back my wife was still there and I had the best little girl possible, thanks to her efforts.  She's really helped me discover what's important in life.  I'm glad it's them.
