I was thinking about some things recently and so now I’m posting random stuff tonight.
I have been going over some places that I frequently visit here in the Valley and I decided to plot them out on a MyMaps by Google Maps. Here’s a screen shot below, click for full size. I sure do get around this place! The markers show places like work, shopping, friends and things of that nature.
Other news, I went to Target on Black Friday. I’m insane, I know. I went specifically to buy a Christmas gift that was at a price I couldn’t pass up. Unfortunately, getting to Target at 4.55am was not early enough. Oh well, now the real bargain hunt begins! Oh, have I mentioned how much I dislike gift shopping?
Recently, I have started making a list of unique places to eat here in the GPA (Greater Phoenix Area). I am going to try and shy away from the chains for a bit. I’m sure there are some really great places here that I just haven’t found. This should be an interesting project and I will post updates as I visit new and different places.
Another project I’m currently working on is ripping all my DVDs to my computer for on demand streaming to my XBox 360. On average, it takes about 3 hours to rip a DVD to disk in the format that will play on the XBox 360. Not the fastest thing ever, but I’ll get there eventually… 8 down, unknown number to go.
Check the song I was listening to as I began this post… it’s totally fitting at the moment.
