What are you guys doing this summer?
« on: June 26, 2003, 06:24 PM »
I am going to be at summer school for july and work 3 days a week. Then I am gonna go to FLA ( I dunno when) and work 4 times a week in august. Get an operation on my tonsil. Go play with my upcoming "HALO"   toys, which is coming out in August. Expecting my clone war series packages. Well, I guess that about it.

What are you guys doing over the summer vacation?
Master Chief:  Has anyone else made it out of Halo alive?

Cortana: No, it just dust and echo...We're all that lefts...We did it, we saved earth, we had no choice..it over...we're done.

Working, wondering what I'm going to do with my life now that I'm a free man (not free from prison, free from public schools).

What are you guys doing over the summer vacation?

Most of us here don't have a "summer vacation", since we're older and are in the regular work force (aside from a few who are teachers and get summer off, like the students do).  So for that reason, summer's no different than any other season for me - just a little hotter is all.

That said, I will have a different little "summer project" going on this year - moving into our first real house finally...   8)

I'm one of those folks to whom summer just means working at the office in shorts instead of pants.  I rarely get to enjoy the lazy summer days on the beach or whatever (unless it's a Saturday or Sunday).

That being said...I plan to take a trip or two. I'm going to Comic Con in July....

Vegas sometime after that.

Maybe a couple of shorter trips here and there.  I sure miss those long, lazy summer vacations though.

For the most part I'm going to be busy working this summer to pay for my school fees in the fall and I need to save a little extra money since my union will likely be going on strike in October.  >:(  
Hopefully next summer I will be out of College (I think I can Graduate in a year) and find a higher paying job, I'm not sure what through.  
I may go up to Northern Calif. to visit my Aunt and her family but I'm not too sure if I am.

Matt congrats on the house!!!   Big relief I know. PM me the new adress I just may have a house warming present I could send :)  When your moved in sit back on the porch with a cold Guinness and a nice stogie.


 Any way this summer brings more work. We bought our house last Oct. So now summer is here I get to do alot of projects. I also picked up another car to restore this summer. A 72 Buick GS.   And to fund that project I got myself a part time job a few days a week after my full day at my real job.  So needless to say I will be busy.
Man I miss being a kid again ;)

I'm writing a book.  And taking a few trips, to Chicago, but not until August, and LA, but not until September.  Guess that's not summer anymore.   :-[

Thanks Tom and Wayne!  Guess I should bump up the ol' "House shopping sucks" thread I started a couple months ago, huh?

Darb, where in L.A. are you going to be?  We'll have to try to get together when you're out here...   8)

I'm not doing much.  My one summer class is done in a week, and I only work 3 days a week right now.  I'm going to try to up it to 4 days once class is over

Otherwise my big plan is to read a lot, go to the beach, catch a few baseball games.  The usual

Work.

Teaching my kid to swim.

Spending too much money on stoopid toys ;D

Fighting scalpers to get McFarlane NHL5 variants ::)

Swimming in my pool.

Golfing a lot and drinking enough.
Minivans: a sign of the apocalypse.
