Quarter Life Crisis
Check out this link
sent me. Super cool especially for all of you hardcore music fans. I'll be adding it to the links.
beat me too it, but the weather for the upcoming camping trip
is looking promising so far. Not too hot, not too cool, and very little rain in the forecast. Of course it's still way to early to predict with any certainty, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Your Brain Usage Profile:
Auditory : 50%
Visual : 50%
Left : 58%
Right : 41%
Jeff, you are somewhat left-hemisphere dominant with a balanced preference for auditory and visual inputs. Because of your "centrist" tendencies, the distinctions between various types of brain usage are somewhat blurred.
Your tendency to be organized and logical and attend to details is reasonably well-established which should afford you success regardless of your chosen field of endeavor, unless it requires total spontaneity and ability to improvise, your weaker traits. However, you are far from rigid or overcontrolled. You possess a degree of individuality, perceptiveness, and trust in your intuition to function at much more sophisticated levels than most.
Having given sufficient attention to detail, you can readily perceive the larger aspects and implications of a situation or of learning. You are functional and practical, but can blend abstraction and theory into your framework readily.
The equivalence of your auditory and visual learning orientation gives you two equally effective sensory input systems, each with distinctive features. You can process both unidimensionally and multidimen- sionally with equal facility. When needed, you sequence material while at other times you "intake it all" and store it for processing later.
Your natural ability to use your senses is also synthesized in your way of learning. You can be reflective in your approach, absorbing material in a non-aggressive manner, and at other times voracious in seeking out stimulation and experience.
Overall you tend to be somewhat more critical of yourself than is necessary and avoid enjoying life too much because of a sense of duty. You feel somewhat constrained and tend to sometimes restrict your expressiveness. In any given situation, you will opt for the rational, and learning of almost any type should be easy for you. You might need certain ideas explained to you in order to fit them into your scheme of things, but you're at least open to that!
Now you take the test
In case anyone wants to know why I haven't been blogging much. A) Cause I've been working my fat ass off, and B) My home PC is still fucked up
. I promise I'll fix dat mo-fo soon and get back to regular blogging patterns. Not that anyone reads this or gives two fat shits anyway.
Went to my second Cards game this week and we won again. I think that's six in a row. Three come from behind's in a row. We're 13 games above .500. We have the best road record in the majors. We have the 2nd best overall record in the majors. We lead MLB's toughest division by 3.5 games. Maybe it's time to start being really optimistic about the Cardinals. Eh?
BTW, I've been to six games so far this year. We haven't lost one that I've attended yet. Maybe I should start thinking about season tickets.

There, it's been two weeks. I've finally blogged.
As some of you may know, the Dave Matthews band
will open their summer tour here in St. Louis at UMB Bank Pavilion
on next Thursday night (6/17). What most of you don't know is that they have three full days of rehearsal (music and tech) from Monday (6/14) through Wednesday (6/16) on the stage at the UMB Pavilion. I just got a call from the production company that's doing the video for the tour, "Stageworks" out of LA. They are in dire need of some chain hoist motors, that we have available for rent, in order to rig their video wall to the roof of the venue. I'm doing my best to cut this guy a deal on the equipment and arrange a little bartering action. So far, if my current bid goes through I've got 4 tickets to opening night, in the seats. I'm working on bringing the price down a bit to try and get some backstage passes as well. I'll let you all know what happens.
Hehe, he called the shit poop
NOOOOO!!!! The band Creed is breaking up
! AGGGHHHH!!! The rock Gods have been vengeful once again. Damn ye rock Gods, damn ye all to hell!!!
Wow!! Our Cardinals are on quite a tear
. We've won seven out of our last eight games. Fucking nice. Pujols is smacking homers like crazy and Rolen, even after being beaned in the melon is still knocking in the RBI's. The pitching is getting better and better with each game as well. Lets hope we can take at least one more from the Astros this weekend and then head up to Chi-town and steal at least three games from the injured Cubbies. I think that just might land us in first place.
I think some belated congratulations are in order.....
First off, congrats to Karyn who has successfully bought and moved into her first home. (Check it out here by clicking this link
and scrolling down to the listing at 5626 Willard to take the picture tour.) Karyn and I along with plenty of help from her family will be fixing this baby up over the course of the summer.
Next, a big congrats goes out to Bryan and Caron
for not only selling their old house and buying a new house
, but also having their first "bun in the oven
". I can't wait to see the new house and the new "lil' Arn"!!
A while back we purchased a CD / DVD duplicator & printer here at the shop. I took advantage of it the other day when I burned a couple of discs for Karyn. I got to design my own cover art for the CD's and I must say they turned out pretty cool. If anyone wants me to burn them a couple of CD's and do some original disc art that I can print directly onto the CD's let me know, it's actually quite fun getting to design the disc art. Talk to Karyn if you'd like to see some of my work.
AARRRGGGHHH!!! WORK, Work, work, work, work!!! I have to go to work!! I need a freaking day off!!!
I went and saw a movie in theaters last night for the first time since I saw ROTK back in December. It was pretty crowded for a Tuesday night although I imagine most colleges and even some high schools are out of session by now (one of the reasons I hate going to movies actually... fucking annoying kids, especially the ones on cell phones). Anyway, Karyn and I went to see the new disaster flick "The Day After Tomorrow". I wasn't too bad actually (I certainly liked it more than Justin over at "What Green Tastes Like
") although I do agree with his analysis that the movie is very contrived and everything in it works out really "conveniently". It's a typical Hollywood blockbuster flick with big special effects (which are very good in this one), average acting (I'd have to say overall it was ok, but really cheesy and dry at some points), and a decent story line (I thought the concept behind this one was great and very interesting, although they stretched believability at some points). If you're looking for a flick that you don't need to invest a lot of brain power in and just want some special efx laden entertainment, smoke a jib and plop down 4 bucks to go catch the rush hour show. Other wise wait till this comes out on DVD (unless you're a really into climatology). Besides no disaster flick can ever touch the likes of "Hard Rain" or "Deep Impact". He-he.
No rest for the weary..... It's been quite a long few weeks for me. Between hitting our busy stride here at work, trying to get caught up on some personal stuff, trying to fix my computer and helping Karyn fix up and move into her new house, I've been busy as a bee. I think this was the first Memorial Day weekend in a long time that I didn't really do a damn thing socially speaking. No barbecues, no camping, no parties, no bars (except the Majestic on Friday night for a few hours). At least this week is a short week. Well for most of you at least, I'll probably end up working for my 6th Saturday in a row. I'm hoping to get a couple of whole weekends off (Wow!! Imagine that!) sometime soon so I can take a few road trips that I've been meaning to take for quite a while. Can anyone guess where I'm planning to go?
After all that crazy weather, we deserve a few days of sunshine and perfect temperatures. The forecast for this entire week calls for mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 70's. And if yesterday was any indication, this could shape up to be a fine week.
Shweeet. The Cardinals offense is slowly showing signs of coming back to life. Another solid win and pitching performance last night. And "Sir Albert" hit yet another home run and went 5 for 5. Scott Rolen has been on fire lately as well. We've got a tough stretch ahead of us though. Three against the Astros and four against the Cubs by the end of next week. Hopefully Woody can clam down and get some run support from the boys behind the plate now. The NL Central is shaping up to be pretty crazy.
