…you shouldn’t blurt out in class. Yeah, bad idea. No, it wasn’t me. :)

Oh, and fuck my stocks. :(

While I was browsing the Shack yesterday I came across a link to the Virtual Stock Exchange. You can create a game or join a game and compete with others to see if you have the ultimate stock trading skills. I made a game yesterday and today was the official first day for a few others and myself. I chose some military contractors as well as Google and Apple. Let me just say that the results are not what I wanted.

Looks like I need to find some better companies.

Parents are #1 on that list.

:(

Being betrayed sucks. Being betrayed by more than three different sides at the same time is just what makes people blow their brains out. Fucking Medieval II. Milan, Spain, Holy Roman Empire, Denmark, what the fuck did I do to you? Nothing. Why are you attacking me? FUCK YOU ALL!

So I woke up this morning and booted up Madden 07. I managed to reach the last game of the regular season with my Superstar player. My win streak has bumped me into the Playoffs which made me happy. Now I can’t fuck up. Once I was done with that I took a shower and played Medieval II (look above). The rest of my family left for stuff and I got to be home alone. I watched Thank You For Smoking. Funny movie (although I don’t think it was supposed to be all funny, but I found it so). Once that was over I watched the Dresden Files on Sci-Fi. Good show. After that was Battlestar Galactica. You do not want to fuck with the President and Adama. Holy fuck.

Now I have some reading notes to do and maybe work on one of four article things for Government (which is due on Wednesday). School blows.

My English Empire is kicking major French ass in Medieval II. I regained my European mainland stronghold after losing it to them. Once I recaptured it I built up my armies. Now after 30 or so years I own most of the former French Empire. So much damage has been done that they have retreated to their last fortress in Northeastern Spain. Once I finish them off I am heading East towards Milan, the Danes, Holy Roman Empire (fancy name for Germany), and anyone else who stands in my way. The world will be mine.

FOR THE EMPIRE KING AND COUNTRY!

I picked up a new soundcard today since having an integrated one sucks. My new card is a Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeGamer. Looks like Company of Heroes is going to have to put the card to the test.

Europe? HA! Ok, so maybe I lost my beachhead one the mainland but I will invade soon. Medieval 2 rocks.

School went by pretty fast. Only interesting note is that my VE teacher should tell us information before we act on previous information. Once I got home I played a game of Madden 07. I was playing my Superstar save and it was Bills against my new Lions. The game was back and forth. I had about 20 seconds left in the 4th quater but I was unable to get into field goal range to win so we went to overtime. My defense was unable to stop the coin toss winning Bills. I lost 47-41. Now we are 3-3. Atleast I can still atempt a playoff spot. After that I watched The Living Daylights. Not the greatest 007 movie but entertaining enough. My favorite is still Casion Roayle followed by GoldenEye. Now I am watching Lord of War and relaxing.

I loaded up my Superstar mode save in Madden 07. I left off 2 games into the season where I was drafted by the Raiders to be their QB. Even though I won both of those games for them I felt that they suck. Their defense was no where to be found when the opposing team did running plays and their offensive line couldn’t protect me for shit. So I talked to my agent and demanded a trade. Now I am on the Lions. I won their Week 5 game against the Vikings (I guess my trade took two weeks). Even though their record is 3-2, I think I can improve it and hopefully get a playoff spot. Week 6, here I come.

For once in a long time, I have homework. I get to answer Government questions from the dreaded book. What is this shit? Questions? Book? What has the world come to?

Skipping that class, today was fairly good. My TA period had me attempting to repair a busted ass computer, and I mean busted ass. Cisco was review time so we went over a worksheet. Skipping over VE (only for a few seconds) and Government, PE was dull. We went over emergency bullshit because we have a drill tomorrow (RANDOM DRILLS, OMG!) so it will probably be during passing period, which is DUMB. After that we played basketball. I gave my F game ’cause I am cool like that.

Back to Virtual Enterprise now. We got some new souls to corrupt people that will be joining our company. So they get to do a cover letter and resume just like anyone else. Once they do the management staff (which is due to change since we lost the VP of Human Resources) will interview them. I will be a hard-ass like I was near the beginning. I be cool like that. One of the newbies seems to be kicking ass and taking names charge. I looked at his resume and he wants to apply for the position of assistant web master which would effectively place him under me, Mr. CIO. Now I have no problems with shoving more people under me (I say that in a non-gay way), but our web people haven’t been up to snuff lately. Or you can just say that they haven’t done shit. I won’t get into the whole shebang, but we’ve hit a snag. So we (and by we I mean management) are working to shift the company around for optimal working awesomeness. I think the first thing we have to work on is the Finance department. The VP of that section isn’t everyone’s favorite person in the world (that and when he talks I want to kill myself). Hopefully we can easily get some of the employees into there with ease. Second, we need to divide the rest into respected departments (sales, marketing, etc.). Third, the website needs to get done sometime before next month or atleast up for that matter. Forth, get people working. We’ve had trouble getting anyone to do work. When you ask they usually give you the “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!” attitude. I’m sure we can find something.

Enough of that, this witchcaft called homework is calling.
