Happy Halloween

I’m sitting here with about 19 minutes left on the 2010 Halloween. Hasn’t been a very exciting one. I had Trent today because he has fallen way behind on his homework. Last week he had the oppurtunity to do all his daily homework and start working on making up the stuff he’s been lying about doing. Unfortunately he decided not to do it. So the punishment was not to go trick or treating this year. I really didn’t think he would make the decisions that he did. However I guess he was testing the waters and decided to lie about his homework and “forget” to bring the extra stuff home. So he got to spend the day with me doing homework. That was a tough punishment to carry out. I really hope he learned a valuble lesson today. If not, it’s going to be a long school year.

Other than that I put up a website for my father’s band the other day. He seemed really excited about it. I told him awhile back that I was going to send him a computer and have been lagging on it. Really, I don’t have much of an excuse of why I haven’t done it other than being busy with my own life and being lazy. So I decided to pick him up a domain name and through up a site on my webserver for him. It was nice to read his email respones to the gift. I even went back a few days later and read them again. Made me smile.

I bought some shelves that I wanted for my kitchen today and put them up. It looks a lot better in here now. Lately I’ve picked up a few different things to make my apartment more homely. It’s been pretty bare over the last few months. It takes a while to start from scratch. But I am a proud owner of a kitchen table, microwave, and toaster now. Oh yeah, I actually have a real trashcan now. LOL, the office wastebasket that I’ve been using for the last few months is now for recycling. I also have scored a couple different pieces of artwork that I’ve had my eyes on for a long time. Just so happen to run into them on sale and have got them for a fraction of what they were originally. It’s coming around.

I tried to take the RAID off my SSD’s on my laptop and reinstall my Ubuntu and Windows 7. I needed to do this for a while because there isn’t trim support on them the way they were set up. I ran into a bunch of issues with that whole process. I’m going to have to put a few hours into trying to straighten that out tomorrow. I ended up putting the RAID back on so I could just use my laptop for some things I was trying to do. Sometimes computers are a real pain in the ass. Thank GOD for that…..or I wouldn’t have a job. LOL

Anyways, that’s enough ranting for tonight. Got 6 mins of Halloween to enjoy. 😉
