Hey people, just letting you all know things are fine for the most part. I’m getting prepped for having company this coming weekend, but that isn’t the real reason I decided to post here. I wanted to give some exciting, and interesting information.

I just became an UNCLE! On 12/11/08 @ around 5:16pm. My younger brother (who is in Iraq currently) and his wife gave my parents their first granddaughter. This is also the first great granddaughter for my mom’s side of the family.

Other good news… My twin graduated finally over this past weekend. We spent the night in a hotel after getting off work on Friday, as his graduation ceremony was in a far off place Commerce TX at 8:30am Saturday. The ceremony was relatively quick compared to my own graduation. After things were over, we stopped off at the campus book store because this was the first time my brother had actually ever stepped foot onto the actual campus, having taken classes elsewhere more local. From there we had an awesome lunch at a local restaurant B.J.’s Brewhouse with some family that couldn’t make it and friends that were not able to make that gawd awful early graduation ceremony. Then after dinner spent time with friends as they live nearby where we were eating lunch. It was nice to hang out for a while as I’d been the one driving and stuff… It was a nice break.

Yesterday I went to the Arlington 2nd Sunday meet at a park after talking with a couple good friends I met at Oklacon, Imperial Lion and his mate Kurisu. I found there were a few other people that I kinda knew at the meet as well. It was most enjoyable and I wish I had brought my fursuit, but the head is currently out to be repaired. The only annoying thing is that a cookie was left on a seat that I didn’t see (left by someone’s kid I bet), and had to clean up my black leather trench coat. Other than that was a good meet and one I’ll have to return again to at some point, but with fursuit next time. I then went back to my apartment, had semi been hoping to chat with one or two people, but didn’t stay on long as I had plans that evening for a Christmas dinner planned out by [livejournal.com profile] celyddon.

The dinner last night was stupendous! It was all made by her as her present to us all. Other gifts were passed around. It was a really nice day in general, and had a nice end to it as well with that dinner.

I’ve also just had a lot on my mind here, some wish things weren’t so distant from some friends of mine, but then again there are varying levels of friendship and closeness and things of that nature. I’m going to try not to take things so personally as I believe can be said for many, and also try not to invest too much emotionally into things as some it only helps to just set one up for a fall, especially believing things are at a certain level when they aren’t, or having too high standards on some things (including people, friends, etc.). I know I tend to hold myself to a high standard, and a lot of times don't meet what I feel I should be capable of.

I end this with a quiz I took, and I really like my results. From here I go back to other things, might not be around much, but I want to thank everyone for their support. It means a lot.



Your Spiritual Number is Six



You bring communication and empathy into people's lives.

You are very open and understanding. You can accept difficult people.



Right now, your life is about being understood. You have trouble with your own vulnerability.

You end up playing the role of therapist in relationships, and it's hard to get people to ask about you.



You will take time out for those you love, even if you don't have much time. You can't help but be nurturing.

You are very responsible and ethical. You deliver on your promises.

I just wanted to wish a happy birthday to the awesome [livejournal.com profile] dingybatty!!! :) I hope you have fun today and all the best of wishes. *hugs*

The past weekend was actually very eventful. I hung out with a local group of furs on Saturday for the usual "First Saturday Meet" I even picked up a Wii Fit that I've been searching for. I've been looking for one for months actually. I still have yet to play with it, but I think I'll try to use it to help in the interim of not going to the gym as our apartment still has no deal with the local gym after the gym went 24/7. They have an issue with the gym being unstaffed after a certain point even with all gym members having to sign a waiver and understand that there are times when it is not staffed. *shrugs* I may just up and pay a regular membership as I just want to get back to working out and such.

Sunday I went with a group of friends including one of [livejournal.com profile] savrin's co-workers, to the State Fair. The outing in general was quite fun indeed, it was a shame though that my brother wasn't able to join and his bf from out of town. We saw lots of people selling wares, ate some interesting foods, including the new "fried" thing there chicken fried bacon. It is just regular fried bacon that is then battered and fried. Nothing all that great in my opinion. Rode some rides, as well and won't soon forget the cramped ferris wheel. *snickers* Lots of fun antics were had by all parties, also had fun with a roller coaster, some bumpercars, and a centrifugal force machine. Then afterwards I ate dinner with my brother and his bf, then watched the movie Iron Man.

The rest of the past month has been uneventful, though gonna hang with friends tonight to wish a local a happy going away. Hope he comes back to Texas soon as he seems to yo-yo back, leaving for a bit and always coming back to Texas. :P This night bodes to be much fun.
I know my last post was mostly fluff, but here is a regular post on what things have been going on here lately. Oh and check out my Fur Affinity account as one of the recent submissions is in reference to my previous talk like a pirate day post about some, visual "treasure". Had photos taken by Regek near my apartment at the lake, trying to make a RL version of a pic I had commissioned a few months ago.

Truthfully... everything else in life? Not a whole lot out of the ordinary. Things are ok. Nothing worthy of note... I wake up, go to work, go home, and the regular routine there. Still looking for another job. I'm going to again revamp my resume again, but current work schedule 8am - 5pm makes interviews kinda hard to schedule. Speaking of jobs and interviews Celyddon got a new job and recently had a friend gathering to wish her well with this new job. On the homestead side, I recently visited my folks with my brother as it had been over a month since seeing them and had a good visit. I have also hung out with the local group of friends here and things like that.

I haven't been able to work out here recently like I've been wanting to as our apartment's agreement with the gym we've been using expired. The gym went 24/7 and there are times it is unstaffed which made our apartment not sure if they wanted to continue their relationship with the gym. So what this means is either go find another gym, sign up as a regular member to the current gym, or just do some workout stuff around the apartment, like a situp, pushup, and that kind of routine. Maybe our apartment will get another workout room... Hopefully some decent equipment and not let kids ruin the stuff and keep tighter security. Means I don't have to leave the complex to workout. :P

One gathering of note was a recent party held at Damien's apartment. The place was packed! Lots of friends, new and old. Lots of fun was had. We were also kinda wishing Spike a fond farewell as he is moving away from Texas (but hopefully only for a little while). He's moving for some good reasons, job & to be with someone. I wish the best of luck there. In the end the party was much fun and next time I'm going to bring my fursuit. :P One other person brought theirs and I'm gonna bring mine next party. This should definitely be interesting. ^_^

I also recently got some new toys from flowtoys to play with. I got a set of crystal poi with flow handles and another set of handles to interchange if I don't want light up handles. I'm still working on trying to get some behind the back stuff, and with Celyddon was teaching my brother the other day as well.

My Xbox360 had problems and I had to send it off to be fixed. I should have done like what Loiosh said and said it was 3red rings, but I didn't... :/ Ah well it's gonna get fixed that's what matters. I've got other things to enjoy besides video games and whatnot.

Con wise I find that I might possibly be able to go to Oklacon, but that depends on rooming arrangements and riding stuff to and from the convention. It would be my first time there at that con. MFF is still a go and I used some of my airline miles for a free trip so all is good. The outdoors stuff definitely appeals to me as I have another friend of mine wanting me to go to Feral. There are some others starting up a new outdoors kind of con in 2009 that people are wanting me to attend as well.

Not much else really... No real big news.
And not get singed... That is something that I did last night actually. I will get to that part in a bit though... Work was just a normal day, and after it I went to a party held by a cool friend of mine that I used to game with and have hung out with on occassion, but normally only at the parties he's held. I'd love to try to hang out with him more often, as well as other friends. I hope we do keep in better touch. The party was a blast... I brought some nice vodka and others brought other alcoholic beverages of all sorts. There was much food and merriment. The party was kinda in celebration to an engagement that in everyone's opinion took far too long for him to propose to this lovely woman who he's been seeing for about 3yrs. now. So it was definitely "about time"! :P *chuckles* We even celebrated "Earth Hour" by dimming the lights for a bit too... Even google yesterday was black instead of it's normal white! :P

I found out that he still does that "Blues Dancing" and I truthfully need to find out where some of that is around here locally to just hang out and whatnot... They talked about some meet in Austin, but I don't think I'd go down there for dancing... I'd have to plan for other things, and there's a good fox friend among a few others I know in the Austin area and I have been meaning to visit at some point, but haven't yet... I'd rather visit for friends and not dancing, and I will at some point.

I met a lot of new people at the party, and one guy I met had his girlfriend who was just learning to spin poi and they brought some toys and because they brought toys another friend of mine rushed home and came back bringing his fire toys. Before the fire began I was helping teach her some... Perhaps our paths will cross again, but I can refer her to a much better teacher than I as I want to learn more moves from her... *chuckles*

Now onto the burning part! :P The part that you all have been waiting for... My friend brought a fire staff and fire poi, and after a bit of talking over things and making sure about safety I decided "why the hell not", along with the girl, who I was teaching, and her boy friend thought that I was "good enough" to spin fire... So I did... and it was my "First Burn"! @_@ I was definitely a little antsy and unsure of myself... I followed my friend's instructions on getting them soaked with fuel and then spinning off the excess. My friend started his fire up first and used his staff to light the fire poi. I stayed with some real basic moves and didn't even touch doing any behind the head moves or really anything over my head. I do have to say this... It was VERY fun! I can definitely see the draw to spinning fire. I was a little 'afraid' of the accidentally lighting myself on fire, but after actually spinning it I see the draw to those who do it. The sound of the fire spinning, the smell, and everything else... I think I will get myself some custom fire poi and begin spinning fire myself after this experience. That way I can do more tricks and be more confident while spinning fire... So now I can say... Yes... I have graduated to fire! ^_^

Pictures will be coming soon as there were pictures taken! :)

Speaking of fire... I hope that the birthday candles did not destroy the cake [livejournal.com profile] pacerfox! :P *snickers* Bad joke, I know... I am wishing you a happy birthday and do hope we can hang out at some point outside of a con. :)
Today my car had problems and I called into work letting them know about it. Having a friend help me so as to not have to pay a dealership or some local nutjob charge me out the wazoo. In other news though I was able to hang out with friends today like one certain fox [livejournal.com profile] lhexa who was in town. We spent a nice bit of time talking with my roomie and Amberlee joined us and we all went out to a nice monument in the local area... I may post pics that were taken on my FA... My brother showed up as well there and we had a great time. I even helped a family and took a few pics of the entire family and they in turn took pics of the group of us too which was nice.

After that we went back to my apartment so that Amberlee could get to work and from there just had a nice bit of fun chatting and playing of games. Some of which we all MST3K'ed, but it was all fun. Then we went to meet up with a group of friends at [livejournal.com profile] fuzzwolf's place for a bit of a "birthday gathering" as his birthday is this coming Monday. Speaking of birthdays... I want to wish [livejournal.com profile] bauske a happy one. Hope things were fun and whatnot.

The time at Fuzz's was fun, with everyone there chatting up a storm. It's so interesting how internet'isms can get into conversation and things of that nature. All in all the party was fun, and the cake was funny. Had good food, good company, and things of that nature. I will be starting my new schedule tomorrow and when I am at work I'll put the schedule up. I am not sure how long it will last, but hey it's better than what I have been working... It's currently 8am - 4:30pm, with Thursday being my "short" day of only 4hrs.

I hope to catch some people online and chat at some point, but with how schedules and time zone differences... It kinda makes things hard sometimes, but hey it isn't like anything that hasn't gone on before.

In any case, g'night peoples! Oh and thanks again for the birthday wishes again, even though it is after my birthday as well. :)
Been back to the apartment after a real awesome party last night with friends. Met a few new people which is awesome meeting new people and making friends. There was good food, fun, and merriment had by all and even was surprised by some late arrivals. Watched lots of fun videos including internet oddities. Lots of laughs, and drinking, there were some memorable moments, but the best thing was just the fun time with friends.

I do have some things I want to accomplish this year though...


  • Find a new job

  • Play more music with my musical instruments

  • Learn more poi moves

  • Get in better shape

  • Find happiness?

I hope that this year will turn out to be a good one. For the most part even this past year was a semi-decent, excepting a few things. This is a new year with more possibilities to explore with the knowledge gained from this past year. I just hope that things look up like I envision... Just with some recent stuff at the homestead, things may not be as upward looking as I first thought, but this all remains to be seen.
At least that is what I am hoping... I was just called and asked to work voluntary overtime tomorrow and I was like F*@$K THAT! Screw them... *sighs* I am going to enjoy myself tonight with the company of friends. I'm gonna head off to [livejournal.com profile] teirandragon & [livejournal.com profile] fuzzwolf's apartment for a party. This is going to be fun... I'm bringing a fruit & cheese platter as it is a "pot luck" thing.

I'm off now, take care everyone...

Oh... and...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
