The gothnic yesterday was a lot of fun. You've really never seen anything funnier than a group of about 12-15 goths all between the ages of 20 and 40 playing volleyball. Especially when one of them actually managed to get the ball over the net and the other team missed because they were too busy cheering about it going over... Was very very amusing. Many people, including </a></b></a> ex-girlfriend. I don't remember her name for the life of me, but it turns out that we've got quite a few of the same friends back in ABQ. Most of the old UN crowd, and some other random people as well, including some of my brother's friends. It's a small fucking world. Also had to help one girl get dressed about 3 times because she was trying on some clothes. One of the resident goths was giving away a large amount of goth clothing because she was moving, so I was helping one of the other girls there try things on. Mostly was things like zipping up the back of the dress, tying the corset in the back, holding her boobs in place so the shirt would fit right for the picture, er... Anyway, it was lots of fun overall. I didn't take a camera with me, but there will be pics posted of it soon and I'll find a link to them.
Secondly, I've kinda got my website up and running. There's at least one or two things on there for now. It'll be changing drastically very shortly as I just got a copy of Dreamweaver for this mac that I'm using. I won't have to write any more html! Yay! So the addy is: http://xander.kyndig.com/ and if you want an e-mail addy of
Yes, Drew, you can have the space on there that I promised you. Get ahold of me on IM and I'll get you the info you need to access it. :)
The pride parade was this morning and my brother, sister-in-law, and I all went. It was a whole lot of fun, there was lots of nakedness, many things handed out, including condoms, Altoids Strips, free admission passes to the world's only unionized and employee owned Strip Club (yes, there's a stripper's union out here...), marijuana seeds by the handful (apparently under CA law, the seeds are legal, but the leaves aren't), more condoms, stickers, bead necklaces, t-shirts, etc. Was hilarious to see that the biggest and most extravagant float in the parade was the Altoids float. They were advertizing their new Altoids Strips. Just like the Listerine strips that everyone is so addicted to, Altoids is making them now, except in Altoids flavors. "Curiously Strong Strips!" were the signs on the float and that were being carried by the 20 or so male body-builder strippers surrounding the float. Not my style, but the strips (cinnamon) are -much- better than the Listerine ones. :) I think I just switched brands. (just curious, but did you know that Altoids is owned by Phillip Morris Inc?)
Still looking for a job.
I got a tan. Holy shit.
I have a place to stay until August.
I have a realty contract that I'm maintaining just outside of Madrid, NM now. About $130k over the next 7 years, with a balloon payment of the remaining 100k at the end. So I've got some supplemental income for the next 7 years and a house downpayment at the end. :)
That's about all for now, I've gotta go make a real website instead of a style sheeted badly written intro page. :)
