My wife's uncle was diagnosed with stage four lymphatic cancer, and we went to Wichita to comfort her mother and to see her uncle. He was in great spirits, and I enjoyed each visit we had with him. We will possibly be going to Wichita once a month throughout the treatment, which is on 21-day cycles until further notice.

lookin' for a little affection

Astro is on his way to St. Louis with five Begnal kittens, two of which we get to pick. We've decided that Daisy bringing us two bunnies was her way of telling us that she wants some friends.

I took a shot as a contestant on the Love Connection

Bought my third set of Dale-II's whilst in Wichita. Gotta love the Dale-II's! Unfortunately, danzigfried wasn't wearing his during our lunch at Chipotle.

The audience voted and you know they picked a winner

Our plans were to come back Saturday or Sunday, but he was not allowed visitors after Friday, so we packed up the car, and drove back last night, arriving about midnight - a seven hour trip. Guzzled an energy drink and hit the road. stuf123, this one's for you dude:

I took my date to the Hilton for Medina and some dinner

Mother-in-law's mobo appears fried. I think I have one of Tony's old Socket 478 motherboards, but will require a CPU and some memory, as I'm sure I don't have any spare DDR laying around. I went to CompUSA today to price processors and a new video card for my XP box. I had to crack mine open to see what I had, as its been so long since I built it:

Existing Card:

GeForce 5300
128MB DDR2
250MHz Engine

Possible New Card:

GeForce 6600
256MB DDR3
500MHz Engine
400MHz Dual-RAMDAC

She had a few drinks, I'm thinkin' soon what I'll be gettin'

It looks like xirr rebooted at 1521.

Instead she started talkin' about plans for a weddin'

My boy and I are going to go out back and pretend to be Zeo Power Rangers. I'll be Jason, the Gold Ranger, my son will be Tommy, the Red Ranger. I can't wait. *eyeroll*

Said wait, slow down, love, not so fast, says "I'll be seein' ya"

Didn't sleep well at all last night, but I did get about an hour of DS2 in, which is always nice. Unpacked this morning, went grocery shopping, and plan on getting the kids down about 2000 tonight. I sure hope I rest well this evening. Tomorrow, mow the lawn, get things ready for work Monday, and do as little as possible in-between!

That's why I found you don't play around

I may try to pretend that Gold Ranger is chasing bad guys with the lawn mower and kill two birds with one stone!

With the Funky Cold Medina!

My condolences on the family emergency.

Proposed card is ascetic.

Sux not getting sleep.

Have fun mowing.

Thank you.

I cannot imagine any instance in where my proposed new graphics adapter is ascetic, unless you mean to say it's looking quite severe, having no adornment or ornamentation, in which case would apply to the present card, as comparison. Perhaps you mean't aesthetic in which case you're talking about how pretty it is (could even be considered the opposite of ascetic) but I really do think you're focusing on the wrong issue here. Physically, the card could look like a turd with a PCI Express connector on it - what I'm trying to get here is greater frame-rate and more graphic pipe. I don't care what it looks like.

I caught up on sleep last night.

Mowing was fine, didn't even break a sweat. I no longer have a half-acre to mow.

yeah sorry about that. I did mean aesthetic. Posted in a hurry last night and didn't get any sleep Friday night. I know that pretty alone doesn't mean a damn, but sometimes you just gotta show off, no? Why do you think that the PC has all these mod cases for gamers and l33t h@x0r$?

Probably because they're either vain, or stupid, the latter by a group of Oliver Stone fans.

You should see the boxes Tony and I built. I guess you'd call them sleepers. They rock absolutely hard, but we stuffed them inside a plain-jane vanilla cases. Heh.

Unfortunately for us, we could only find neon-blue fans. So, for $60 per case, the sonofabitch absolutely glows from the seams and few visible vents from the case. That was not done on purpose.

You've been inhaling too much neon dude.
