CSI: New York and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi

There wasn’t much on TV last night, so when I saw that CSI: New York was on, I suggested that we give it another shot. We’ve watched it once or twice before and just didn’t get into it. And I want to like it; I like Gary Sinise. It started off rather bland though I thought, and the transitions where they show shots of the city were too frequent and lasted too long. It got interesting, but I don’t think the characters are as easy to get into or to care about. Gary Sinise’s character just doesn’t have the presence of William Petersen’s Gil Grissom or David Caruso’s Horatio Caine. It’s like they’re trying to pull from the other CSI …

Third Person for the Sake of Google

I’ve been kicking around the idea of starting to write in the third person. It’d be really odd, but a part of what I want with this site is for it to come up highly ranked in Google when searching for my name. I’ve been thinking of it for a while. I may start to actually do it here at some point.  If anyone has any opinions on this, please let me know.  It’s very easy to leave comments and I know people are reading this site, but nobody has yet left a comments.  Give me some feedback fer cryin’ out loud!

666 Day

I woke up a little later than normal today; about a quarter of nine. I was pretty busy throughout the morning, so I didn’t take a shower until lunch. I haven’t done that in a while.   Bruce got his first bath since we’ve been here then too.  He was getting very smelly. There was a pretty bad storm this afternoon. Lots of hail and thunder and lightning. Amanda had to go around to the properties and said it looked like someone had dumped out a bag of ice. She had a pretty exciting time this morning too. She had to go by a few properties this morning too, and when she did she put in the wrong alarm code …

Freemason TV

Bruce and I fell asleep on the couch last night while watching something about the Freemasons on the History Channel. I can’t remember if we watched a little of two shows or it it was just one, but I distinctly remember something about their origins and something attempting to link the Knights Templars to them. Interesting stuff. I was explaining it all to Amanda when she got home today. She tried to run away from my conspiracy history lesson.

Music and Movies that Anna and Barry Frazelle Don’t Like

I got up at 5:30 today. I know that’s not a big deal for some people, like those who have to be at work at 6 or 7:00 in the morning, but it is something for me. Mike Paschal, who does a lot of the audio/video stuff at good ol’ Port City Community Church, asked me to think about starting to come in at 6:00 to help set everything up. He didn’t in any way try to make me do it or guilt me into it, but I figured right now I get up and make sure I’m at church by 7:00 once a month, what’s another hour? The set-up went by pretty fast anyway. I drove Amanda’s car (colloquially …
