02/23/2003 Archived Entry: "Visit to the Sister in Davis"

Saturday was just a day of homework and RO. Nothing special. *yawn*

Today there was a bit more happening. What did I do? I went to visit my sister in Davis. Yes, my parents planned to visit her today and that means that I was to also come along. Thus we set out on our way there around 10:00 AM. Got there and hour, an hour and a half later. When I came in, I was greeted by people playing DDR. I jumped in and played with them. ^_^ As I stated before, I suck now, but hey, it's fun. ^_^; Then, being the parents that they are, the parental units made us all sit down and eat. Not that I was complaining. FOOD! XD Thus we munched for a bit. Then came a gaming session! ^_^ The sister and roommates have a PS2 and DC, so we got on those. Played some old school SC (I'm so used to SCII...) and Dead or Alive 2. w00t4g3! After everyone seemed to kinda tire of that action, I headed up to my sister's computer. Hey, if I'm going away from home, I might as well get on a computer.... XD I tell you, I'm too computer dependent. Not that that is a bad thing. I personally think it's a good thing. ^_^ On the computer, I tried to fix my sister's DVD-Rom. Stupid thing won't play DVDs! What I found out is that it's a Samsung SD-612. -_- Them things are horrid DVD drives! And there're no easy driver or firmware updates to rectify the problem. Bah! Didn't get it to work. -_- Stupid DVD drive.... Anyway, that was more or less the whole trip. Right afterwards, my parents wanted to head back to give my sister time to finish her homework. Not totally exciting, but hey, it was somewhat fun and definately more interesting than the usual happenings in my life.

My sister's roommate has one of those designer computer towers! It has a see-though side window and a blue florescent light. You know what I have to say about these things? I say they're stupid. Personally, I like old, dull computer cases. Maybe I'm just living in the past, but I am used to computers looking like opaque white/off-white towers. I don't see the need for a computer that looks good. Isn't it just going to be tucked away under your desk anyway? Or hell, if it's out in the open, I want to see something that reminds me of a computer. I guess I'm just living back in the old days.... I want to play around in DOS again.... Stupid watered down Windows DOS.... *shakes fist*

Anyway, 'tis all for now. Back to RO! *is alt+tabbed out of it* ^_^;
