2010.07.16 Friday

One of those Friday's, eh? One of my co-workers didn't show up to work today, which kinda left me and another guy to figure out a bunch of crap at the last minute. The scary part is that he didn't call in sick or take the day off, he just completely didn't show up to work.

That screwed up my lunch plans and time allocation for different tasks, but Taylor and Habs were generous enough to still pick me up some food from Torchy's Tacos. I had the Republican and I think the White Trash. Both pretty good, and relevant.

Today was a good day for me, maybe not good for the cleanliness of my room. I acquired some electronic parts that were going to be tossed, or sold for practically nothing. There is a huge rat-nest of parts that could use some organization. Now I just need to figure out what I can do with this stuff.

Later on, Kelc and I went over to Milburn Park to play some sand volleyball. Super fun, and brought back some memories. I used to play sand volleyball all the time with friends on campus, mostly dorm buddies. We played until the sun went down on Friday afternoons, then everybody went their own ways for parties and whatnot. Lots of fun. Also, I remember having to run after balls through grassy areas, and I stepped on a stick just the right way to puncture my foot. That was fun when it got infected and I had to take gross antibiotics while limping around campus. Anyways, we played the normal way of scoring (serving team can either score a point, or lose the ability to server), not rally scoring (whoever scores gets the point AND the serve). There was an added twist that the serve to win must be a "spin serve", and also we could use any methods necessary to keep the ball in the air. Fun times.

Went over to Tyler's house after. Played some Wii Rock Band (didn't know until now that the different systems have slight differences in tracks). Ate some pizza, watched some of New Moon with rifftrax. I didn't realize how terrible the twilight movies are. I was saving watching the movies until after I read at least the first book (which I can't do now since Kelc took the book away). Not that the books are any better...

Trailer Park maybe?

Yeah that's it. From their site:

"Fried chicken, green chilies, lettuce, pico de gallo, and Cheese served on a flour tortilla with poblano ranch.
Get it Trashy! Take off the lettuce and add queso!"

I don't think it had lettuce, so it must have been "trashy".
