8/31/2006It looks like one of my friends gave my email address the Church of Scientology. I've gotten two of these spams in the last two days. Thanks a bunch!
Just for that, here's a link to my favorite Scientology website.
Jessica and I just got back from vacation in one of my most favorite places on earth: Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park. We spent a week there, hiking through the wilderness, fishing in rivers and lakes, and hanging out with our friends, Andrew and Melanie. Go here to see the pictures.
|My friend Julian just uploaded a video of him off-roading his bright blue FJ Cruiser near Las Vegas. Looks like fun. Strange music.|
It looks like a chili-cheese-jalepeno-onion hot dog from 7-11... a late night masterpiece created by yours truly. Dated May 31, 2006.

8/04/2006I've been nerding out with this website for almost 7 years now, but I've really enjoyed watching the recent blog popularity explosion catch up to my friends. Over the last two years, almost all of my friends have entered the online publishing world, either with blogs, personal websites or even business sites. If you include MySpace profiles, it probably has reached 95% of my friends.
In fact, the final holdout is my own wife, although I did get her to blog on this site once.
I think most my blogging friends have discovered that it is difficult to write something interesting on a weekly basis. Personally, I get around this hurdle by writing about something whether it is interesting or not. Sucks for you, but at least it gives people a reason to check my site on a regular basis.
Anyway, the whole point is to get you to check out some of my friends' websites when you get a chance.
8/02/2006Believe it or not, there are a few secret spots in Orange County where you can get away from it all for a few minutes and pretend that you're somewhere else. The hidden redwood forest burried in a Yorba Linda canyon is one of those places.
It's hidden way in the back of Carbon Canyon park. Head towards the big dam and you'll find it. These Coast Redwoods were planted 30 years ago. You have to walk quite a ways to get here, so you're usually all alone. It gives off that dark, creepy vibe even in the middle of a sunny day.
