some ruggers hate boardshorts...

Austin power!

some fun times so far in AUstin here for fall break. arrived Wednesday night and as I walk in the door ready to crash about 930, my bud is with a couple friends saying, hey we're going to a movie. ha We walked over to the Alamo THeater and saw the movie Social Network. great film which gives a sort of nutshell version of the facebook story with reality show characterizations of all involved. I think the Napster guy is cuter in real life than Justin Timberlake though. ha
It sort of made me want to know the real real story though, but I liked getting the background info on it all. At the Alamo you can order food and drinks during the film, and I had some fried cheese and hibiscux tea. Ahhhh now that's so Austin, hibiscus tea is served up just about anywhere here. I like it.
yesterday we ran some errands. shopped some places on COngress. I'll blog about it later after I go back and buy some things. oh yeah I got this really cool digital watch, it's the sort of thing you'll either love or hate, and I love it. BARTON SPRINGS! we had lunch at a pizza place on congress and then went to the dog park and Barton SPrings, and I am always amazed at the guys there, always a random mix and always some hot ones in the bunch. and this was middle of the afternoon on a thursday! anyway, my buddy is out in the water throwing a ball back and forth for his dog to swim and get and there are some people getting in the water and some finely tightly worked out bodied 18 y/l guy named Dylan is out there in white board shorts and of course me and my bud and some other guys I had my radar on are checking him out the whole time. he's out there getting wet in the cold water a little bit, talking to his step dad, waiting for the mom to get in. but the whole time he's wading around, there it is right in front in those white board shorts. anyway...eventually he makes conversation with my bud who's playing it very cool and chatting him up quite a bit about UT and finding out the guys from CA and visiting the campus etc etc.. oh man! eventually they head out and we take the dog back home. last night was gym time, and then some tv relax time with my bud and his bf, and eventually dinner at Maudie's Tex Mex. today another day ready to start up.. sigh

fall break cometh....

been very busy this week. getting grades in, papers turned in at the night class, yard finished up and mulched in, house picked up. all my favorite outfits packed and ready to take on fall break to AUSTIN. bank stops, oil change and a flat fixed on Sat. another flat fixed on Sunday after church, two new tires purchased yesterday that weren't the ones fixed... etc. even had a few emails from former "connections" here in okc, one trying to come over MOnday night. but Dan was too dang busy and TIRED of course from the full day of teaching, and then another very exciting bud in town from DC. think big tall tight and hard. who wanted to visit last night, but alas I was packing everything up and getting prepared so that I'm able to leave right after school and hit I 35 going south!.. I guess I'm ready to get out of OKC for a few days! hope everyone is enjoying fall. more posts coming soon.

little litl....

I came across this computer in a magazine and thought it looked sort of handy. Not that I have an extra $400 to throw at a computer. but dang it does look handy for just general surfing and uploading and viewing of pics and youtube clips etc... It's called the Litl , coming out of Boston. I like the way you can flip it over for viewing and that you can connect to a tv for a bigger pic. I also thought for travel it would be cool, blogging etc.. And just check out the nicely designed packaging...
