Christmas Break

Looking over my last post, just under a month ago, a few things of interest (to me, anyway) have happened…

I bought a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe. I got my green belt in Taekwon-Do. I now have about 45 stars in Super Mario 64 DS. I had a nice week off for Christmas. Family came over for my traditional Christmas Eve gumbo. Spent a nice Christmas with family. Started playing Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within (for Xbox). Helped my wife (very little) with a CSI Puzzle (which was cool). Got almost completely caught up on movies. I Finished Half-Life 2. We spent New Years Eve with friends. I sold my 1996 Mazda Protege. I have returned to work. Whew.

FWIW: Half-Life 2 was STELLAR. Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within is, I think, just as good as The Sands of Time (which was a fantastic game) although it is darker. Super Mario 64 DS is still awesome; I miss not having a real analog stick sometimes, but, it is really fun. I also got Driller Spirits DS, but, I don’t really see any other compelling DS games. Next I plan to play either Knights of the Old Republic 2 (Xbox) or Metroid Prime 2 (Gamecube) – haven’t decided which, yet. I still need to go back and finish Halo 2. Finally, we got Donkey Konga (Gamecube) which is a ton of fun.

Looking forward to attending CES 2005 this weekend. If you are reading this before CES starts and have a Palm device check out ExhibitList.
