so sore. [Apr. 21st, 2001|11:32 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
been up for a few hours now.
cleaned the kitchen, made more iced tea
put in a chicken pot pie. 30 more minutes.
traded chuck a new wallet for my old DVD rack... more organization for all: good trade.
my old wallet was hardly staying in one piece anymore.
working on cleaning my room now... it got messy this week, as it always does.
scott's coming over in an hour or something.
I'm so sore from skateboarding ... I guess I've fallen more times than I can remember... random pains all over my body. Feels like the day after a good day of skiing. (yes, a good day of skiing involves crashing a lot.... if you're not crashing, you're not hitting big enough jumps)
back to cleaning, then skateboarding until scott comes....
gonna learn to ollie today... oh yes.

Heh

My brother lives up around Everitt and he likes doing tricks with skateboards and bikes.

First time I skied last year I took a lot of spills, but that's because I just sucked at it. I couldn't master getting up without having to take a ski off first, and the one time I did, my balance shifted forward and I took a header into the snow, legs flopping a bit behind me. Oof. I did hit a stretch of about half a minute going down a slope without falling, though. Sure, it was straight, but you gotta start somewhere.

I posted this in Erik's journal too, but check this out. Hopefully it doesn't take long to load, and I thought it was pretty damned sweet. It reminds me of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and has a nice Matrix bit too.

Re: Heh

Found another couple things. First one's an .avi - should work by clicking here.

Second one's something where you try to break a column and you succeed (or fail) based on how strong the meter at the left is. I figured out by hitting the SPACE key it makes the character go into action. Try it here - just click on the first bit to get to the main screen. Seems that the first option lets you play the column game, and the second option lets you click on more stuff to see various other things, too.

Are you just bruised up, or skinned up too ? I can handle bruises, but gashes and stuff really get on my nerves.
