Cognac and a Bag of Coins

I finally got fed up with my job at Graphzilla and quit. I really like the people and working on and around 3D. I learned a lot and met some great folks. But the particular projects I kept being assigned to where unbearably painful. I'm working at the G now, ChromeOS specifically. I can't say it's my dream project, but it's certainly interesting.

Danielle lost her job about 6 months ago. Between that, being out of work for a month and a half, and the general expense of the bay and owning a home, money has been tight. Now were both gainfully employed which has let us buy some frivolous things.

Danielle got a kitten. We're calling him Enzo Ferrari, he's quick, and somewhat rambunctious. We're planning on getting him a cat door so he can come and go as he pleases when he gets to about 6 months of age. I take him outside where he climbs trees and generally acts cat like. I like him, but he is a cat, so he does nefarious things like: sit on keyboards, and knock Danielle's iPhone into the tub. She's not pleased about that. She's considering a Palm Pre as a replacement; I don't think she'd be happy with it, the Apple app store is filled to the brim with just the types of crummy time management games she likes. Speaking of phones, my F3 gave up the ghost, the sim card socket flakes out every 60 seconds or so. I'm considering a Pre but paying more than $35 a month for phone service rubs me the wrong way.

I got an Astro City Arcade Cabinet to replace lifftchi's New Astro City that he took home in May (much to everyone's surprise). I got Mushihimesama Futari in the mail on Friday. It's really enjoyable, fast paced, fun to play, not much thinking or memorizing (some of the patterns are random, heaven forbid). Danielle went to sleep at 7pm, she's setting up the sales ad price tags tomorrow morning, so I'm just having a relaxed evening playing my game.

mood: happy happy

Man, that looks awesome. Congrats. Also, I need to procure cognac.

Also, doesn't Danielle have the Applecare?

What service do you have that's $35 a month?? I am seriously considering replacing my iPhone also, the other dude in our company my age ditched his and went with the Palm Pre and he likes it so far, I'm not sure his bitch is entirely valid for me, "I can run more than 1 browser at once".. but the actual phone quality on the iPhone is what would make me change..

Cognac and video games sounds like a fantastic idea btw it's been a while =P

Holy shit man, I thought you died, disappeared at least. It's t-mobile's 300min/mo plan, 30$ + taxes etc. I don't use my phone much.

I did sorta disappear for a while.. I'm still in the Sac area, Folsom to Be specific. My new GF(as of about a year ago, since we both know the last one was a capital bitch with royal icing) and I are looking out in Lincoln for houses. Found a really good loan program that will still let me do 0 down and not charge ridiculous interest rates =P

I use mine for company e-mail and such so I have to have the data plan but I guess 50/month isn't that bad for ATT, it was 100 before I played with my minutes.
