He was good while he spun

Hello Everyone!
It's been a little hotter than Ben likes it this weekend (over mid-80's? Really?) however some people seem to enjoy it so I am going to adopt Ryan's view on the thing and be happy for those people who find happiness in heat. I will be happy to continue in the 60 degree summer weather though, with an occasional mid 70's day to break up the pattern.

While trying to stay cool this weekend I found myself in the a movie theater about 3 times. My current summer movie ranking looks something like this now:
  1. Wall-e
  2. Caspian
  3. Iron Man
  4. Hulk
  5. Get Smart
  6. Indy 4
  7. Wanted
Wall-e is great. Very well animated, and the story is VERY well told and the emotion a little Robot can convey is incredible. Well worth the price of admission. (The short at the beginning of the movie is pretty funny as well! (It's like 2 great movies for the price of one!))

In other news my Xbox 360 DVD drive died today. Was it the heat? I don't know, all I know is that the grinding sound is bad. I called tech support and they told me (surprise) the drive was bad and it would cost 99 bucks to fix it. Being as that is 1/3rd the cost of a new one I decided against it and I am going to utilize my "computer taking apart and putting back together skills" to install a new one. Not like I can void a warranty that doesn't exist. (The strange thing is that I honestly don't play it that much... not like it dies from overuse or anything.)

Lisa was feeling the weather today and took a sick day to stay home. I think she's feeling better (headache, nausea, etc) than she was this morning, but she spent a lot of time sleeping today.I am sure she would appreciate some prayer for her health.

IN the health department I continue to do fairly well. I'm going to try and cap my hours per week to 32 to avoid burning myself out, at least for the next few months. We'll see how things go after that.

I continue to thank God for my mobility and how I am getting stronger every week. I really look forward to what God has for me as I get better. Thank you all for your continued prayers! Vacation is sounding so great right now! (Well, vacation without medical complications...)

    That list might look funny if you are on Internet Explorer. It doesn't render correctly for some reason. It works in Firefox. It's called an "Ordered List".

    Taking things apart is always fun. I tend to think that "Make" magazine has the correct idea, "If you can't open it, you don't own it"
