Skinny-dippin' in a sea of Lee, I'd propose on bended knee...

Airport at 5am. Yay. schild took his time getting there, but we grabbed some food, a smoke for schild and a beer for myself before heading to Denver. We changed planes in Denver and off we went to Austin. I got a chance to play a bit with the DS and PSP and was really underwhelmed. Maybe I'm too old for fun, but I really don't like the stylus on the DS and I can't say I like the analog nub or the control pad on the PSP. At least it's better than spending $5 for an hour of DirecTV on the flight. Barely.

We took a shuttle to our hotel which is located just south of the town lake. We have a toaster. schild better not try to make me eat bagles. There will be violence.

We ate at Guero's Taco Shop or stand or shack or something. Got a lot of meat, but they lacked draft beer. For the love of god, how can a place operate without draft beer?

In a few minutes we're going to try to meet up with Toonces and do something, probably drink.

Will post more when I have something to say.

Swing by the Logitech booth and see if they're still doing Karaoke Revolution for prizes.  That was the highlight of last year IMO.

If they have Karaoke, I'll do Journey.

So we hung out with Toonces from Playtechtonics tonight. Drank a bit at a club. Stood astounded as the baseball game is still on right now. And we're getting up in about 5 hours to pick up our passes. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. That's all. More tomorrow, etc.

Wow. This is the deepest peek into Shockeye's personality I think I've ever had.

My karaoke standby is "Spinning Wheel" by Blood, Sweat and Tears.

I always figured NiN - Hurt was about the best I would ever be able to do, cuz your pretty much whispering the whole song..

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

Are they back yet?  It was probably a mistake to let them out.  I'm not entirely sure they should go places.
