A moment to pause and reflect
I went to play hockey last night. I don't go on Friday night often, but I had time this week and didn't get any other ice time this week. Seemed like a great chance. When I got to the rink, I found a couple of players from my team were there. Very cool. Good practice could be had, and we did. While we were changing, one of them told me a sad story. Mark, one of the players on one of the teams against which we play and with which we practice, had a heart attack while playing on the very ice surface ......

Busy Month
It's been a crazy month at work, what with losing personnel and "accelerated timelines" (read as: director sucking up to IT VP). As a result, I've not had much time for anything 'sides work and working out. The former is a bummer but the latter rocks! The one other thing I've managed to have time to do is watch some TV on DVD. Sheri and I have started (as I've mentioned previously) watching some of the Sci-Fi shows about which most everyone else seems to rave. Most recently, we've tried Heroes. We ......

Fitness Update:
My weight loss has continued, and I feel great. I have now lost 63 pounds, but this number is difficult to use as a gauge as I am in the gym 5-6 days a week now. I will be measuring my body fat in a couple of weeks, which should give me a better indication of my progress. I can tell you, however, that I bought new jeans 2 weeks ago and they are now one size too big and slide off without being unbuttoned. What a far cry from last year! I posted some pics of myself from last November on my Facebook ......

RealDvD in legal trouble
Apparently, as reported here, RealDvD is not currently available (as reported in a previous post of mine) thanks to Hollywood believing that it violates copyright. I have tried the software out, and I like it. It's convenient to have playable copies of DvDs I own, even if they are tied specifically to my machine. Sometimes, it's cool to rip a DvD to take on my laptop somewhere. Will be a real bummer if it is ruled illegal is not sold; I was considering purchasing it when my trial ended. Pity ......

I used to be a headbanger.... I will be Headblader. Thanks to a buddy, I now have on order a starter kit to get the old head shaved. I figured I'd totally embrace the inner convict look. With tats and goatee, shaved head was all I was missing. :-)

Dragon*Con: Marriot rooms now available!
Sheri randomly checked with the Marriot last night about rooms for next year's D*C and they were available. This was total surprise as they weren't supposed to be available (per our last call to the Marriot) until December. We were determined to be in one of the host hotels, so we've been carefully monitoring the situation. As soon as they were available we grabbed them. Chances are they'll go fast as the Marriot is usually the host hotel where you can actually get sleep (if you want it), as opposed ......

I won!

Turns out I talk too much and post too much in my blog. :-) I won 8th place last month (September) at Community Credit. It's a pretty cool way to get credit for just being active in the community. It's nice to be recognized. :-)
