Take the "Labor" out of Labor Day

Well.. it's Monday morning. Another Labor Day has come and gone. Luckily, there wasn't much work to be done this year. We had initially planned on heading over to Ellensburg for Jason's semi-annual Labor Day BBQ. We didn't make it, of course. The Wife and kids were sick with some sort of nasty cold, and it made for a slow weekend.

On a brighter note, I did some fun stuff. With everyone else in the house tired and going to bed early, I got to play World of Warcraft for quite a while on Saturday and Sunday night. If you're into PC games and haven't played an MMO before, I'd recommend this one. My guild, OmethDominion, has been doing quite a few instance runs to get set pieces for member. Personally, I've been in Stratholme approximately 10 times. None of my pieces have dropped. NONE!! I have gotten some good drops though, so no complaints here. Here's hoping that the items start dropping soon so we can run The Scholomance just as many times.

I also test rode a Honda Shadow Spirit 750. It was a damn nice ride. When I was a kid, I rode motocross bikes competitively. I haven't been into it much since I stopped riding in 1990. I've wanted a ride bike (and buy one) for the last couple of years, but haven't been able to get one yet. That time is coming soon, though. That ride on Saturday sealed the deal.

Back from San Diego

Well.. I'm back from San Diego and VoiceCon 2005. San Diego is a beautiful city, but I didn't get ot see much of it. I stayed in a pretty nice hotel, but it was about a 15 minute walk to the conference location. The content was decent, but I wanted more detail. There was just too much to cover to really dig deeper. Of course, that's the goal of most of these conferences. You go there thinking you're going to learn everything, but you leave with more questions to answer on your own time.

I enjoyed it though. Despite the new questions, I'm more informed now than I was. That's what made it all worthwhile.
