Beirut 2.0, New Do

This weekend turned out to be pretty productive, and annoying in one aspect… Friday night, while trying to get my new hard drives installed and formatted, one of my monitors decided that it didn't like the 22uF capacitor on it's main circuit board, so it blew it up. Made a nice pop and a puff of smoke, so I unhooked the monitor with a quickness. My dad took a look at it, and thinks that replacing the cap will probably fix the monitor, so that's good. Now I have to suffer without my dual monitor setup on this computer for a few days, but I think I can manage.

Yesterday was pretty sweet. I slept in nice and late – almost until noon, which is a feat unheard of for me these days. I didn't do much for the afternoon, but I hung out at Chris's with said friend, Jon, and Tom, along with their respective others, Lana, Michelle, and Lindsay. We cooked out and had some good eats. Then, Chris, Jon, and I went to work at making beirut table 2.0… We went up to home depot and bought a nice sheet of Medium Density Fiberboard, and had them cut it to our specs. Once we got home, we disassembled the old table, and built up the new one in 70 minutes… We dubbed the new table “THE NOMAD.” We played one inaugural game to test things out, and it performed quite well.

Today had some accomplishment and frustration at the same time… I took a couple hours to wash and clean out the inside of my car, only to have it rain and mess up the wash. I was mad. Oh well, I'll get over it. I went out and bought a couple new Queensryche CDs, Empire and The Warning, in response to the great vibe I got from the concert the other night. So far I like them a lot. This evening I did something I've been considering for a few weeks now – a change long overdue… I got out the clippers and lopped off all of my hair, down to about a 1/4 inch. Looks a lot different. I was ready for the change though. Had that old style for like, 10 years. It needed to go, at least temporarily.
