Random Updates for This Week

My Flickr account reverted back to basic for a couple of days and many pictures were inaccessible. I finally gave up on trying to get Andy to pay his bet and purchased an extension to my pro account myself. All pictures should be back up.

New week's resolution. Don't miss any classes (missed way too many last week). Go to gym at least five times, I have been slacking.

J.D. has his birthday bash yesterday. Since I live 0.7 miles from the party, I walked, which allowed for greater freedom in the night's festivities. Pictures here.

I purchased my plane tickets for Nicaragua. I will be gone from June 22 to July 5th 2008. This should prove to be fun. I will be meeting up with many of the women in my life Becky, Rita, and Carmen. Oddly enough, Carmen will also be in town for a wedding. I am also having a hard time finding a good deal on car rentals down there. I will post a separate entry about this later.

Found this great quote:

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink.

- George Orwell

So true, plus bonus points for mentioning cuttlefish. I find myself using big words whenever I want to conceal some truth. This post included. Oh well.
