One more week until the Starcraft II tournament season begins in earnest. MLG Pro Circuit starts the first Friday in April, then the new North American Star League starts broadcasting the Monday after the MLG event ends.

I have yet to move to Twitter.

I just don't have that much to say... and I don't want to take the time to follow everyone else while they Tweet. I waste far too much of my limited lifetime on Earth lost in cyberspace and online staring at glowing screens as it is.

I'm sure I'll eventually cave... but I'm trying to wait until it's truly not cool anymore.



In other news: work was blah today.

I'm working in two of the small recital halls, and not in my usual venue. Covering for a co-worker...

It served to remind me how much I wanted out of here when this WAS my job! Please let this shift end!!!

talking about why the upper 3% should be taxed where everyone else shouldn't be burdened with everything

the only thing that I heard was the communist menifesto

It should also be noted that @realpatriots was often first with the Pats' list of inactive players for each game last season.

best way to think of twitter is similar to being in a room full of people and hearing snippets of what people are saying.

knowing who to follow is the key. I tend to follow @wilw and @muskrat_john and what they are doing.

One day we were all coming up with #starwarsbeers My favorite was: RT "It's a trappist!" ackbar ale #starwarsbeers

That's a boat.

Right up your alley, I guess.



So... gas prices aren't really a big concern for you, I take it?

Looks comfy though. A nice place to hold a party!

You do know what this means, however... don't you?

No doubt.

They are filming a big Hollywood movie at my old high school.

It's funny to see all the production trucks and giant lights set up around the place.

I guess they're going to tear the building down as soon as filming is finished.

I have kind of mixed feelings about that...

as a star was fan I thought SSD meant "Super Star Destroyer" and wonder how Intel got the rights to a Starship.

personal news, went and did a sleep study last night to see about taking care of my Snoring.

Wisconsin news: Even tho a Judge has put a restraining order on the budget repair bill that violated open meeting laws, Republicans are still going to implement it.

Some landscaping guys decided to dump a truckload of wood chips in my driveway, trapping my car in the garage and preventing me from getting to work on time. I guess I'll just take it in the spirit of April Fool's, except that they weren't playing a joke, they were just stupid.

went to bed around midnight and woke up around 11am

In other news. Last tuesday I went home and to sleep with a sleep monitoring device. It was basically a Tricorder that was hooked to a chest strap that had connections going to my nose, finger and 2 bands on my chest. Friday I got a call back from the sleep center and they offically diagnosed me with Severe Sleep Apnea I stopped breathing on average 59 times every hour, and my Oxygen levels were below 90% for over 2 hours with the lowest level recorded as 71%.

So the basics are that every time I go to sleep I am slowly suffocating myself.

Next week I get a CPAP machine to go to bed with me for the rest of my life. Better then dying I guess

I bowled in a tournament today that was using the same oil pattern that they're using for the USBC national tournament in Reno. Didn't do that well b/c of my recurring problem of not getting the ball over the foul line, but, when I didn't drop it, I actually looked pretty decent. I can say that I had a game better than some of the members of last year's championship team in the Open had last night in the first game their title defense (which I watched a live stream of for a bit before going to bed last night).

Ditto.

Stayed at the GF's place this weekend. Barely slept. Didn't even sleep that great at my own place last night either.

I'm weary... Oh so very weary.

Kinda sucks when you need a weekend to recover from your weekend days off.

At least it doesn't look like an insane week at work.
