How about that weather, eh? Yesterday it was almost 90° F here in Sacramento. It was a record temperature for this time of the year (yay for global warming). Today it's supposed to cool off a little then get much cooler through the weekend. It sure would be nice to have some fall weather before we jump right into winter. Around here, winter means rain. I don't like the rain.
Of course the folks down in SoCal would probably like to see some rain. In case you hadn't heard, half the state is on fire right now.
So, Danielle and I have been busy doing the wedding planning thing still. We got our DJ. We're working on finding the right photographer. After that I think we can relax for a couple months and just try to save
I didn't manage to save a dime last month. After paying for the new wheels I went ahead and dropped three hundred bones (or clams, or whatever you call them) on an alarm system for my car. But it's pretty nifty, and it helps me to sleep better at night knowing it would take a crook an extra 30 seconds to actually steal my car. Seriously, I know that most people think alarms are useless, but luckily my parking spot is only 10 or 15 meters from our bedroom. And the alarm is definitely loud.
So anyway, on to less important matters...
I bought a new video game that I'm enjoying quite a bit. Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge for the Xbox. The game is... great. You basically fly around in a plane and shoot at things, but the graphics, sound, story and everything else are just excellent. If you have an Xbox, you need this game. If you don't have an Xbox, then you need to buy an Xbox and this game. Besides, I need some more friends with Xbox LIVE so I can kick their asses and taunt them.
Oh, I do have one gripe about this game. I bought it on Friday, but when I got home and tried to play it, the disc wouldn't run. I went back and exhanged it, but now it runs for a half hour or an hour before it decides to quit. So I have to go back and exchange it again. I guess they just got a bad batch of discs, but it's quite annoying. My Xbox plays all my other games just fine.
Have you heard of There? It's like a new online game for the PC, but they don't call it a game... they call it an "online getaway". It's like a virtual world where you socialize instead of slaying dragons. It looks pretty interesting. It just went from beta to limited access, and Danielle and I have been invited to join. So we're going to check it out. Go check out their site and sign up. Maybe we'll see you there... in There.
