Anyway, check out the latest updates on the website, especially the hate mail. There's some funny stuff there!
I've just got to reiterate the fact that Google completely rocks. I'm not talking about the search engine - I mean the company in general. They continue to impress me with all their products. Picasa and Hello are an amazingly powerful combination of tools for editing, organizing and sharing pictures. Gmail continues to increase the size of my mailbox (last count was 2.118 Gb, and still growing). The Google Toolbar is an absolute MUST have for internet browsing. It blocks pop-ups, shows page ranks, autofills forms, and has a direct link to Google News. Speaking of Google News, it's now customizeable, so you can make the news page report whatever you'd like. Mine currently reports news about the world, Kuwait, Grand Junction, and computer games. Are you surprised?
Remember that TV show I was so obsessed with? Well, the obsession is still going strong, and I freely admit that I still watch at least one episode a week. Seriously. Well... it's still a few months until the movie comes out, but the fan sites are getting busier every day.
I just picked up an interesting book. The link is to Amazon, and there are some great user reviews there. Here's the description:
I also found out they're publishing a series of "graphic novels" (which is just a fancy word for comic book) that will tell the story of the time between the last episode and the upcoming movie. Needless to say, I've pre-ordered my copies. I'll post the link if anyone is interested.
I'm finishing up my packing. It's amazing how much stuff I've accumulated here. I'm leaving a lot of things here too, much to the dismay of my roomates... except for the beer kits... they're glad I'm leaving those of course...
That's all I've got to report! In the home stretch now, and getting anxious to get home. I had a dream the other day that I woke up and was in my own bed, in my own house, with my wife and baby boy. It was a great feeling, and one I'm REALLY looking forward to the experience again. Of course, when I woke up and realized I was still in Kuwait, I was bummed out for the entire day.
Cindy asked about my plans for my "civilian life". She also hinted about ropes and handcuffs... maybe she knows something about Shelley that I don't... But I honestly don't have any plans at this point. Needless to say, Shelley is fairly anxious about that as well, and has been diligently sending me info on job openings... I've got a couple of ideas, but that's about it right now. However, it does look like the job market in GJ has improved a bit in my absense.
Love to all!
