An Intarwebs Hiatus

I haven't been posting much on here over the past week 'cause I've been swamped with work and school and all kinds of other things. And I'm not really getting caught up, especially with school, so I'm going to take a two-week break from the 'net. It's so easy to get distracted reading blogs and the news and funny stuff that hours pass and I get mad at myself for not getting "important" things done (like the eight page paper on the Muslim Brotherhood due next Sunday that I really haven't started).

So, I am going to step away from the internet for a few weeks. I'll still check email and I have to get on for my schoolwork, but don't expect me to be posting around here. Check out some of the blogs in the blog roll on the right-side of the page if you're looking for something to entertain you.

I'll see you in a few.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mother's birthday. She is one of the strongest, toughest, and smartest women I know and I owe so much to her. When my road has been rocky, she has always been there to support me and guide me. I wouldn't be half the person I am today without her.

She claims to feel old sometimes, but no one would ever know at least based on the number of people that think she is my wife or sister when we are out. Perhaps she made a pact with Satan?

Here she is with all of her grandchildren this summer.

Thank you, Mom, for everything. I love you.

Weekly Music Video

In honor of Metallica's newest album just released, Death Magnetic, here is the video for their first single, "The Day That Never Comes." I must say that the album rocks and most definitely hearkens back to the Metallica of the 80s with killer guitar riffs, numerous time changes, and just unrelenting metal.

Anyway, without further ado...Metallica - "The Day That Never Comes."
