Ben is too good to me.

Thursday after work I was SOOOOO tired. I managed to stay awake till he got home but then passed out shortly after that. He went and got us all pizza, baked it, brought it to me… It’s the little things like that I *really* appreciate because I did not get that for so long.

And with that, I’m off to get ready for another day. I work today from 1:30 to 5:45. The busiest part of Saturday. UGH.

News and Stuff…

So yeah, work is challenging. I have a lot to learn. Today I got to talk to ‘Apple Guy’! He is our Apple Specialist and a general really cool guy. I am looking forward to learning more about them. And the G5.. *drool* I’ve never seen such pretty guts in a computer.

I’m working on Cassidy’s site. New layout is coming soon. She just needed something different. Then when I’m done with hers I’ll start on redoing mine. I have something in mind but as is the norm for me it will change 13431543 times between now and going live. Right now it’s just too… simple. 😀

I don’t work tomorrow.. YAY, that means I get lunch at Nvidia. 🙂 Ahhh, the perks of dating the biggest geek I know. 😉

Best Buy

I am officially a working person again. I went through orientation Saturday for four hours and yesterday for eight hours. Today was my first day on the floor actually helping customers and doing inventory tracking. I’m not used to selling the way they do. We are not commission based, but we do push service plans and product replacement plans pretty hard but they actually are really great plans to get. Especially when you are buying a $2000 computer.

Overall the computer department is SO busy. The other departments (media, home theatre, mobile, appliances) do not get NEARLY as busy as we do. It’s going to be tough to learn everything that I need to know. But it will be constantly challenging and i’m really looking forward to that


So I took Cassidy to the half way point where I drop her off half way between here and Bakersfield so she can see her dad. On 152 I was stuck in traffic going East (normal for Friday). It took me over an hour to go 7 miles. On the way back, the same 7 miles in the other direction took 7 MINUTES! 😕

Some genius decided to cross 152 and 156 without an overpass. There is literally an intersection with no light, just a stop sign, and it backs traffic up for miles and miles. When I was on the way back (around 7ish) the traffic was backed up over 10 miles.

/me remembers why Ben showed her that alternate route that she will ALWAYS take from now on on Friday evenings. heh

On a good note, it gave Cassidy and I time to practice writing her name and letters. I’d write letters or her name on some paper then she’d write them. So now I know that even though I don’t have her this weekend, at least I got SOME practice time in. 🙂


I added a new photo gallery. Makes it very easy to organize and keep track of pictures. It has quite a few cool features such as commenting, rating, using pictures to send email cards, ect. You can check it out here!

I showed this program to Ben who instantly loved it and you can check out his gallery here.

Remember they are both under construction and will have a bunch more pictures added to them in the near future. I also plan on getting this up and running on Cassidy’s site this weekend.

Enjoy! 😀


1. Do you watch sports? If so, which ones?
Not really. I’m don’t mind watching them but I rarely choose to watch them. Unless you consider racing a sport because I never miss a NASCAR race and I usually try to catch Drag Racing on Sundays.

2. What/who are your favorite sports teams and/or favorite athletes?
Well, if you continue with the racing theme I’d have to say John Force for drag racing, Tony Stewart for NASCAR and Boris Said for the twisties. 😉

3. Are there any sports you hate?
Ummmmm, golf. Boring to watch. Okay to play with a few good friends and some drinks. But even then I lose interest quickly unless I get to drive the cart.

4. Have you ever been to a sports event?
Yes, I’ve been to a few baseball games… A few Dodgers games and a Pirates game. I’ve watched a lot of the Bakersfield hockey team play when my best friend in high school had season passes. I’d have to say that the hockey games were my favorites.

5. Do/did you play any sports (in school or other)? How long did you play?
Between 4th grade and graduating high school I played volleyball, basketball, soccer, and ran track and cross country.


So, Blogger seems to be down more than it’s up lately so I’ve decided to change to B2 which already seems to be a MUCH better program. It’s a PHP program that runs on my MySQL server so I can comtrol much more of it. Plus the added features are WONDERFUL. It has a search feature, a comment section (I expect everybody to use!!), emotions (or smilies, whatever you want to call them) built in, a catagory section so that you can check all posts by catagory if you’d like… I should have done this a looooooong time ago. 😀

BUT – All of my old blogs are odviously not going to work so I archived all of them and you can still read them by clicking the ‘archive’ link below. Amazing concept, huh? 😉

Well, the cherry site is up. It’s not done but I wanted to get it up to motivate myself to finish it. Now that I’ve spent time on it I’m not sure how much I like it. *shrug* We’ll see how it goes.

I’ve updated the bio’s. I combined all the content into one page called ‘content’. Go figure. I added a quote page with *whoah* one whole quote!! I’ll add more as I come across them or as I find/live them.

So yeah, expect the cherries not to last long. I actually have a new layout in mind already. Something more colorful and stuff. I wish I could make my dang mind up!

Imma a geek

YAY! This is my first blog entry from my new computer! We finally got all the components I needed. Wednesday we got me a nice 17″ ViewSonic monitor, Thursday found a NICE used computer desk, then last night I threw the computer together, installed Windows and I have my own computer back!!! YAY!!

LeadTek Nforce2 board
AMD Athalon XP 2700
1.00 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce4 TI4400

I will get the new layout up this weekend. Ben has a lot of work to do because the newest ATI card came out and they have a lot of testing to do so I’ll have some free time on my hands.


Cassidy had her first homework assignment tonight. It took us an hour to finish it. She had to write the letter ‘B b’ three times and color and cut out all the pictures on a page that started with the letter B and glue them to another page.

It’s funny how she kept getting the letter H and the letter B mixed up. We take for granted as adults this knowledge that is so challenging to a 5 year old. I’m going to try and find her some flash cards to help her learn the letters better.

So, from now on we will have homework every Monday and Wednesday night. I’m excited and a little put off at the same time. Hopefully she will get a better hang of it and it will start to go a little faster.
