Can your laptop handle it?

So ZAch and I were playing ESPN 2K5 last night when a roachdecided to make its debut appearance on my apartment. Debbie and have not seen one for a good year now, so when chulo starts running around, I look at Zach and say, "Man, i don't have my sandals, dude." He looks at me with a "Are you braindead" look and says, "You have all your shoes over here!" (For those who dont know, Debbie's asian culture requires that we and all our guests please remove their shoes upon entering our home).

So grab Debbie's Nike shoe and hammer away at the roach. This guy runs around like a possessed Randy Moss. He jukes left and then right, and here I am wacking away trying to nail him. Then the roach makes a run for one of my couches and gets under it. Well I wasn't having that so I lift the couch, completely disregarding whatever was on it. Zach then informs me my laptop was on the head rest area of my couch and obviously fell over when i lifted it. That's when I lost it. I started again after the roach and finally nailed him to a stand still. After which I way laid him to an abrupt end to his life.

"You little punk!" I started to say to myself. Other not so nice words were in the hopper ready to come out but I decided to restrain myself. I go over and check my laptop. It still works!! It fell from a good 4 feet off the ground and this thing is cruising like nothing happened to it. Sweetness!! How many people can say that about their laptops, HUH? I am definitely recmmending this bad boy to anyone that shops for a PC laptop. I think it's one of the best work horses i ever have owned. And it can take a hit! Like Terrel Owens last night against the 49ers.

Looking for a good laptop? go to www.averatec.com wanna buy it? go to either Best buy or Sams Club to find them. Either online or in person, they'll have it. And they're very affordable, too.

well that's my rant for today. Blessings to all.

Motherland doing its part...

Hector, my brother told me that Mexico was coordinating this but i didnt really think it would get any or much news coverage on it. Mexican President Vicente Fox called for the Mexican Red Cross and the military to coordinate a relief effort that includes a navy ship with vehicles and supplies into the gulf coast of LA. and a two part convoy which consists of medical professionals, food, mobile kitchens for feeding up to 7,000, supplies, and other goodies all packed into a 45 truck convoy. Guarded by MEX and USA people, the convoy is headed up to San Antonio crossing the border at Laredo, TX.

I am just excited to see that Mexico, a country that has had mixed relations with the USA for many reasons (including its border relations and its oil-supply relations) and a country clearly outmatched in regards to financial and military strength compared to the USA, can put all that aside and offer their help in the way they know best...through their people and their cooking! This is why i love my culture and my family roots. We may never be the richest country in the world but in our hearts always feel like we have something to give though it appears we have nothing to give.

I love the motherland, she makes me proud. Please continue to pray for the people affected by the hurricane. BIG UPS ALSO TO SUPER TED AND HIS AWESOME PICS. Also thanks for staying in one piece out there. Debbie and I were worried sick and praying for you while you were in harm's way.

Dios me los Bendiga a todos.

Movie Thought


So the movie industry is in its lowest box office trend in a long time now right? So watch what idea i bumped into and think can help create renewed interest for people going mor often to the movies or something.

The idea started when i was watching the trailer piece for The Skeleton Key and the deep,raspy voiced narrator said "Everyone is talking about The Skeleton Key but no one is giving away how it ends." So i wondered how cool would it be to make a film and then have the alternate endings (like for the dvd editions) but instead of putting them on the dvds, actually have them distribute alternate endings to different theatres at random.

SO this how it would work... You have a movie like War of the Worlds with 5 different endings on it so essentially you would have 5 different movie versions on it. Then you would send them out at random to different places that way one group may see the movie and watch one ending of the movie and another group watch a different ending version at another location. How cool would that be?


Please feel free to post.

Method to the Madness

Aight, well here's the way it's rolling out now. When i started my business here and worked at it, my original plan was to open an office by the fall/winter of 2005. However, after my wedding and the beginning of 2005, i was not sure i would be able to pull that feat. Well, it seems I may be floating it whether i am ready or not. I am looking at opening an office in Frisco, TX! Things are not set in stone yet but here's the general location ideas... 121 and Preston Rd at Frisco, TX...121 and Coit at Frisco, TX...or W Spring Creek and Custer. I am posting this blog asking for prayers from my friends. My goal was to open office this year and i am excited that this opportunity is here but i am obviously nervous for fear that i may be moving too fast on this opportunity.

please pray for me as i embark on such an important decision of my life and career and i also ask for prayers for wisdom and strength. I especially worry for Debbie because any decision i make will obviously affect Debbie too. The plan would be to share about 1,000 sq ft with another agent for some time and then once we outgrow our space one of us would move on to a nearby area office. I just want the Lord to tell me whether my time is now and for me to work towards it or not to worry and wait for the next opportunity. Thank you guys for all your friendship and love. Que Dios me los Bendiga a Todos. Hasta Luego

A Blonde Moment Brought to You by Debbie

My wife will probably kill me after I share this but I have to becuase it is way too funny to pass up. Last Saturday we were on our way to Frisco, TX to see the new IKEA store (go to Debbie's blog to read all about it) but on the way we had to stop at my district office to pick up some paperwork and such. On the way out, we were making our way to the elevator. when we arrived there was an elevator that was closing up. Debbie, being the brave soul she is, runs to try and stop it and re-open the doors. Bless her heart but the problem was that the sensors were not detecting her and so all the doors would do was try to continue to close. The real problem was though that she was prying the doors, she did not extend her arm through the doors so the elevator would detect someone actually trying to go through. So she kept fighting the elevator and telling me, i got it i got it.

I pull her arms out of the way of the doors and started yelling about what in the world was she thinking trying to re-open the doors when they were practically shut. She said "I Almost had it." Yeah, i bet you would say that too when the doors close your hands shut! Psycho! So anyways, we laughed about that for a bit but then i guess the thought of her foolishness set in. So she was a little frustrated on our continued path towards IKEA. Oh well.

As for IKEA, that was nice i was very suprised by the quality and the prices they had to offer. I look forward to going there more often in the future. Ciao!

Bedridden

I'm crippled. I'm somewhat disabled. I'm hurting. I'm a little hunched over. I tell Debbie I feel like the hunchback of Notre Dame. I appear to have caused a back problem to myself playing tennis too hard. I was in mid-stride ripping out a forehand shot onto my opponent and then did a stop and run back to center court kind of play. Somehow in the middle of this play i must have irritated my lower back. I decided it was no biggie, so i kept playing. Stupid stupid mistake. Now i am laying bed about 15 hrs every 24 hours. How sad is that? I can barely walk without my back screaming obsenities in pain language. I walk around in a prostrate manner around the house, too. One friend described it as my way of respecting and paying honor to Debbie.

Now i know how people with back pain feel. Kudos to those who have survived back injuries. This is definitely the most difficult injury i have ever dealt with because you feel so helpless. When you sprain a wrist or ankle, that is just one limb of your body. you can still move around with the rest. but your back affects the way you move completely. and your constant movement continues to aggravate the injury too. it's crazy and unbearable sometimes.

Hopefully this wont put me down too long but i dont really know. i think i am going to give it about 3 days before i seek medical advise. In the meantime all i can do is just lay around the house and pray the ice/hot patches work for me. I dont know what else i can do in the meantime you know? I ask for your prayers in this matters and i will keep you posted on how my recovery goes. God Bless.
