Goals or Resolutions for 2011

It’s that time to throw out what I plan on doing this year. Some are either carry overs from last year and some are on going goals for every year.

-Complete 1 certifications for work.
-Place 1st in a disc golf event.
-Disc golf in a new state. (Likely candidates this year is Massachusetts, Maryland, or Virginia.)

New ones:
-Ride bike more. Not for exercise but more for pleasure.
-Start saving for a Disney trip.
-Go fishing with the kids more.
-Use all my vacation days wisely.
-Insulate 2 of the 3 crawlspaces.
-Replace the ceiling fan.
-Replace the kitchen sink.
-Mount TV on wall and purchase surround sound.
-Decommission one of my servers.
-Pay off student loans and computer.
-Earn Xbox Gamerscore of 10000.

Garruk Wildspeaker Pounded Into The Sand

The name in the title will only stick out to that MTG nerd out there…yea yea Magic The Gathering. The following is my post on the annihilation that I have occured onto Garruk on the Xbox 360 Magic The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalker XBLA title. It took me quite awhile to orchestrate the below attack and nearly crashed and burned my Xbox as smoke was starting to pour out of it. I was waiting for the dreaded Red Ring of Death and maybe even a Blue Screen of Death to rear it’s ugly head. (You ask why I spent over an hour setting this up? Because I am nerd-like, it was late at night, and I was bored. Plus the opportunity presented itself.)

This was a regular match I was playing in an attempt to unlock all the cards for all the decks. Yes for the achievement! This was for the last card in the Ears of the Elves deck. A decent green/black deck with a ton of elves that work together to boost their strength and numbers.

Time off from work means Craigslist time

Since I have off from work for almost two weeks, I’ve been cleaning out my basement, garage, and storage up in my bedroom area. Now my living room is full of items I been meaning to sell. Most of the stuff is or has been listed on Craigslist. Some items like my baseball card  and stamp collection from the mid to late 80s will be taken to local shops to see what I can get for them. This is all monies that will be dumped into a hopefully iEverything upgrade spending spree by the end of the year. So far an old 27″ TV and a DVD player went immediately.

The other items I posted is/are disc golf bag and discs, Hoegaarden beer light, Becks beer light, Budweiser holiday steins, 23″ electric fireplace, Xbox 360 games, Wii games, printer and scanner, and a weed wacker.

I also have some autographed LP posters of Bad Company and some other bands around here somewhere.

Interested in anything let me know.
