Erika and I are spending a lot of time together... just about as much as we can between work and school. I'm really excited about how well things are going for us. 2005 ended well and 2006 started well!
I visited Matt this week. He's doing fine in Minneapolis, though his apartment is somewhat cluttered . I watched most of Star Ocean - Till the End of Time, and I'm so impressed by the story that I'm going to buy the game. We actually went out several times. We rode the train from downtown to the Mall of America. We walked all around the Mall of America, and ate at Hooters. I had a decent chicken garden salad. The next day we went to the gun range where Matt is required to train for his job. I had never been to a range, and Matt clearly had more practice, but I did quite well. I only missed the body target 5 times in about 50 total 357 rounds. 3 of those misses were at 50 ft while trying for head shots. I didn't miss any of the 12 shots I took one handed because it felt very natural (and I had the target at 25 ft). We also had a lot of lattes, one of which I took to the bar where we played pool (Matt actually had some of the expensive bar drinks).
Last week my little brother Jonathan and I visited my grandmother in Sioux Falls. She took us to see the falls at night so we could see all of the christychristmass decorations uncaptured by this image of the falls . We saw some other family while we were there. My aunt Bonnie and cousins: Ashton and Alex Auch, and Alison Larson.
My transmission has been acting up, and I'm worried that will cost me a lot of money to fix (if it every fully fails on me).
Classes star Monday! Tomorrow. Wow!
"You’ll see him in your nightmares,
You’ll see him in your dreams
He’ll appear out of nowhere but
He ain’t what he seems
You’ll see him in your head,
On the tv screen
And hey buddy, I’m warning
You to turn it off
He’s a ghost, he’s a god,
He’s a man, he’s a guru
You’re one microscopic cog
In his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by
His red right hand"
