F7, F7

I had a test today. A standardized test. The PSAT. One of those practice tests that prepare you for the official ones. But you still have to wake up at 6:00 in the morning to go to school. On a Saturday. At least the test was pretty easy, but I wasn't worried anyways.

So I have a problem. It's fall of 2007, which is when a lot of new games are released. And me and Nintendo aren't seeing eye to eye right now. You see, they're releasing tons of new games that I want, along with third parties, but don't have the cash for. Mario Galaxy, Metroid 3, Zelda Phantom Hourglass, Zak and Wiki, Guitar Hero 3, just to name a few. And I don't have a job, so how the hell am I supposed to get all these games? Christmas is my only option right now, but things are looking bad for ol' Chris. Looks like I need to submit and few more applications to get on the work force. I need the cash.

Now that I think about it, being a Junior in highschool sucks. So far, this year has been pretty boring, if not lousy. It's not that I'm being overloaded with homework or anything like that. It's just that the combination of certain teachers plus certain events equals an unhappy Chris. How do you like that math? Do you follow that logic?

Brother's off at the movies seeing something called the Comebacks. Personally, I don't think that there has been anything worth paying money to go see at the movie theaters. I've got this huge book thing that I have to design for an Olympic pool in Omaha, but I don't have to have that done by March. I need the floorplans/sketches/research/everything else before I can do that anyways. No good concerts to look forward to (besides Big D, which looks a bit sketchy right now). Hmm.....

That's right! This is the 100th post that I have made on this blog! That's a freaking lot if you ask me. I was going to do this on my birthday, but I've been really busy lately, which is weird because I'm not normally busy. So what better way to celebrate it than a banner!

So my birthday came and went without much excitement. All I did was go to dinner at China Buffet. I got an 8gig black iPod Nano, one of the new ones. It's pretty sweet and sexy and I've been using it a lot. The next weekend I went down to St. Louis for a tournament, but I didn't get to go into the main part of the city. We saw the Arch in the distance though. It's ok, because the city was lame anyways, but the Arch was cool.

More exciting news, I went to a Bomb the Music Industry! concert. We almost died on the way there and back (thanks, Cameron) but it was totally worth it. I tried to start a skank pit during the ska band, but that didn't last long so I just skanked in the corner instead. BTMI! was pretty awesome, except for their chick-keyboard-player, who was pretty lame. Great show, plus we got to hang out with Jeff afterwards when we got our shirts spraypainted. All in all, it was a good time. Here's some photos.

Well, that's it from me for this week. Stay classy, internets!
