Dinner with friends at Jin Ju, a trendy Korean place up in Andersenville. Pretty good. I also managed to finish up the Manhattan Project, a great movie. That, Real Genius, Wargames, Sneakers and Hackers, same sort of vein, oh, and Good Will Hunting, the genius type movies, the smahrt people movies. I like them. Heading home to Woodstock for a bit this weekend. Gotta get a haircut. Also do a little banking. Also going to try and upgrade my parents' iMac to OS X. Should be interesting.

Well, almost. Summer league, team 3, Orange Whip, won our last official summer league game yesterday, down to the wire in a zoney game. Wednesday is a tune up for Saturday's tourney out in Naperville. A quick shout out to some Orange Whip teammates, Jerry, Tim, David, and Shaun. In other news I got entranced by Slamball again last night, it's really easy to get into and excited about. And in a strange confluence I popped in Wargames, and later started flipping through the channels and came upon Wargames on cable.

Summer League tournament, in, well, 8 hours from now, CDT. I should probably get some sleep. But instead I'm going to burn a couple CD's for music for a day out on the Naperville Polo Fields. Managed to get to Evanston at the Century Theatres to see Spy Kids 2, an okay film, and Signs, M. Night Shyamalan film and rightly so, because it's a great movie. Just a good tale all around. Hopefully I'll get some KKD before playing tomorrow, and maybe some on the way back, and some partying at Akira and Bryan's before shipping out to Vegas for a couple days to see the family. Rough.

Right, so Orange Whip, team 3, made it to the Quarters of the Summer League tourney, losing after our captain Akira dislocated his elbow. Their party that night continued, and I pretty much spent it asleep on their recliner. Vegas was fun, a good time as usual. And now I'm back. And I've got a used m505 now, which is pretty sweet, and a WallStreet to play with. And I think it's wednesday. Word goes out to Katina and Alex, more Orange Whip teammates.

Played at Cooler with a co-ed team. It was the first hard realization that I'm playing in the Mixed Division this year. Anyway, we had a good saturday, going 4-0, and then lost on sunday to a Notre-Dame and family team. And then we beat up some other chicago team, which also did fairly well. I managed to eat some pork wrapped in pork on saturday night, but I make it better at home. And I managed to get to bed at a decent hour last night. And I ate only pork the entire weekend, having a brat at the Brat Stop in Kenosha on the way home.

Went and saw xXx last night and had some more Buff' Joe's. Good stuff. Got to drive with lightning all around, which was pretty cool. Heading back north after dropping Bryan and Akira off I drive through the front right about Oak Street where the temperature dropped and it stopped being humid. Very cool. Practice planned for the weekend, and the parents are coming out to visit, oh and Jaguar gets released, but otherwise nothing too exciting going on.

Mac OS X 10.2 was released today, but I got it yesterday, and installed it. Pretty exciting, I guess. Looks purty. But had some sushi last night, had some korean food at Jin Ju tonight with the parents. Looking forward to fish and chips wednesday at Duke of Perth's and a Hammerdown party next saturday.

I was typing up an update the other day, and mozilla crashed and the words were lost to the world forever. Well, to sum up the last 4 or 5 days: stadium run, plyo's, Oak Park, Blue Crush, Hackney's, Surprises for Kaze, tried track workout, fish and chips, practice, mongolian BBQ, teammate computer fixing. But this weekend, well, I'll let the invitation speak for itself
