It has been a good long week (weekend really) since I last blogged for you guys. I can’t say I haven’t had the time, because though I’ve been gone for a week now I have had plenty of time. First of all I have to tell you about the podcast.
Devin Gutierrez has been away from his computer. I don’t know what he’s been doing (he tried to call me last night but I was unavailable at the time), but has been offline all day today. So until further notice, there is no podcast.
As far as for what I’ve been beta testing, it’s a game developed and maintained by my friend Danny Standley, and is called Death Match. I have set up a website for the game (I can’t take all the credit because Danny helped), so here it is:
http://dmweb.usa.cc. By the way dm is short for Death match. Visit that site to learn more, listen to demos, discuss, and learn about Death Match. Note the story page is not up though.
My life, if you really want to know :).
Last week was a pretty good one. Monday of course went Okay… but I think September 30th’s post covered that. Tuesday was a pretty normal Day, along with Wednesday Thursday and Friday. Basicly to sum up the week days there was homework, games (I took a break from scm coding), podcast planning, The daily annoyance ritual of school, and stuff like that. (I chose the word annoyance because school annoys me).
The weekend was the most eventful part of my last week. On saturday, we had goalball practice (being me, my sister, and our parents). As you know by now, our practices are 4 or 5 hours long, so that’s how long it lasted. After that, we came outside to weather that proved the following statement:
“If you don’t like the weather in Texas, wait 5 minutes.”
When we went to goalball Saturday morning, it was humid and 80 degrees. I war basketball shorts and a t-shirt and it felt good out there. When we got out of goalball practice, the weather was cold so that when we went to the state fair (I’ll talk about that in a second), I wore jeans and a heavy sweater and it still felt pretty cold. If you’re wondering, the temperature at 8 or 9 (when we left for practice) was what I said it was (80 or so), and at 2:00 it was 54 degrees. Can you say “Texas is bipolar?”
Well, on to the state fair. We went around 4:30 or so, and I can honestly say I had a great time. My sister and I rode this really spinny ride where you lie on your stomach and the thing goes up and spins you around kinda fast and then you stop (it lasts about 3 minutes or so), and our family walked around and tried some pumpkin pie coffee sample, a fried cake ball (oh my gosh it was great), and a fried snicker bar (that was also very tasty as well).
Around 7:00 or so, we had to leave the fair because it started to rain on us. My mom was adamant upon spending all our coupons, so we did some fun house. In there, there was a thing where you walked across some rather slippery bords and tried not to let your feet fall in the wholes, a moving walkway, a walkway that moved back and forth, one that went up and down, one that vibrated, and even one that went side to side. Also there were punch bags to walk through, sudden noises, and a spinning tunnle that you had to go through. (It spun around and you had to walk forward and to the right to get out). After that was done, we had a nice old shower in the rain storm, and went to eat at On the Border.
Basicly, the funnest part of Saturday was getting to spend the whole day with the family.
Yesterday wasn’t as eventful. I just basicly hung out, (my parents’ friends came over to help us fix our AC which broke on Thursday and left the second floor of our house at 90 degrees in the afternoon that day).
Today has been full of Beta testing for Death Match (Danny finally put me on the team and everything and I’m feeling honored :)).
Well I guess that about wraps up today’s post. I’ll do the podcast when I can, and be watching the dm site for new releases.
Thanks for reading,
Type you later,
P.S. It’s the 900th day of the blog! Keep viewing and I’ll keep posting!
