If Wasting Time Was An Olympic Sport...

I'm sitting here watching the Parade of Nations for the 2012 London Games and decided it's a good time to flurp out a post.  There were so many things I wanted to talk about, and I'm so behind. Time for some time warping. And wasting. Don't forget the wasting.

Last week I got to spend a few days in Avon, North Carolina. It's part of the Outer Banks and one of my friend's uncles owns a few places down there.  Free beach houses are awesome by the way.  While there a plethora of shell fish was consumed and my iPod contains pictures of the horrid aftermath. Sadly, iPods and Blogger don't get along too well.  I also did battle with mosquitoes, the sun, and wind.  I only got a little sun burnt on the shoulders, nothing serious. Our first two days were very windy and I got to fly both my Prism Nexus and Snapshot 1.2.

I also made a standard bad choice in visiting Kitty Hawk Kites, where I purchased the Prism Micron, Prism's smallest, fastest kite. Of course, that day the wind died not to return during our stay. So I'm still waiting to see the little bugger at full speed.

I also have two job prospects at the moment. Before going to the OBX, I had a phone screening with Global Foundries in New York and today I applied to Bridge Semiconductor, where one of my college friends was recently employed.  If niether of those work out, my one cousin is moving to California for grad school and I feel like it's a golden oppurtunity to change up my life by going with her.

In fencing/SCA news, Pennsic War XLI (41) starts this coming week. The first week is Peace Week, no fighting. War Week runs the 5th through the 11th of August. I've gone ahead and ordered some chain mail armor in hopes it arrives before I leave.  It'll be cooler and last longer than any cloth armor. It was pricey, but it's one of those high initial cost, long payoff kind of investments.It also means I can't allow myself to spend too much AT Pennsic.

HAHA, like that'll happen. Make a pile o cash and buuuurn it =D

Until next time, keep it Hysterical.
