A Great Big Slice of Council

I spent my morning and afternoon working with Spencer on some projects – and Bob was giving us a whole whack of trouble with its hardware and all, getting the new drives up and running.  I spent the majority of the day paying attention to Bob.  For a break around 2ish, Spencer and I played some guitar hero but since I couldn’t get my wireless one working we played solo and took turns.  Now this little story requires a bit of back-story:

Paul and Fader Guitar Hero 2Back a few months ago when I was a Guitar Hero addict, I got really freakin far in the game and got stuck on a set on Expert setting where I had two songs (Crazy On You and Rock This Town) that I couldn’t beat and I couldn’t actually get any new songs in story mode aside from those two.  I tried and tried and couldn’t beat them and eventually drifted from the game.  For my first song today, I kicked ass at 98% playing Parasite on hard, so for my second, I dared and attempted Crazy On You on Expert.  My first try, when mostly just showing to Spencer just how damned hard the song was as a joke, I actually managed to tough my way through the whole song and beat it!  I later tried the other one, but only made it 57% of the way through and had to get back to work.  I’ll be sure to try again soon though in hopes of unlocking a new set of songs finally!

Anyways, back to my day.  At 5pm, I made my way over to PoCo city hall and joined the Shaw crew for our weekly council coverage.

Now this day definately goes down in history – we ordered 3 medium pizzas from Papa Johns for our crew of four.  In roughly 15 minutes, I had eaten 5 slices.  Considering a pizza was 8 slices, that was a fair chunk!  But wait – it gets better!  We had iced cream for desert, and then I launched back into eating the pizza, and within a 40 minute sit-down dinner session I had eaten 8 slices, meaning an entire medium pizza!  Today definately goes down in history.  Even as I write this at midnight, six hours later, I’m still very full.

Pizza Crums

Council ran fairly long, talking for over an hour alone on homeless which grew tiring, but I was mostly interested by a map sitting over against a wall which I was looking at for a good 20 minutes before dinner because it has some very interesting and detailed things in my area that they will be working on in the next few years according to their Official Community Plan.  Take look below and I was mostly interested in the new extensions for Freemont:

Also, as a random fact of the day, I didn’t actually wear my binary watch, and it was very missed by my wrist.

    Wow, popped out 3 big blogs there, Paul. Your blogs are getting longer, it seems. Our little Pailish is growing up! (sniffles.) Yeah, I’m good.

    That Guitar Hero picture is awesome. When Rock Band comes out on the Wii, hopefully I’ll get it and invite a bunch of people over sometime.

    AN entire medium, plus ice cream! For you my friend, that is unheard of! I am rightfully impressed.

    Funny, I didn’t realize that there was a lot of homeless in Poco…meh.

    Now what did I tell you about being a guitar hero! Who’s actually a guitar hero, Paul? Who? …. :P

    With any luck, I might actually post something tonight and get back on that bandwagon…so to speak. Here’s hoping. I hope Bob gets sorted out soon though…finicky fellow Bob is…
