...moving into our first real house finally...   8)

Ditto, and congrats, Matt! It's about time!  ;)

I'm spending my summer "vacation" boxing up my mostly loose collection and transporting it four blocks to our new abode. Short trip, but a LOT of tedious work. Man, I have a lot of stuph. Time to hit the classifieds here and trim the phat.  ;D

Add me to the list of people who don't have summer vacations.  In fact, I hadn't had a true summer vacation since before high school.  Every other summer I was working and that trend continues this year and will for a long time to come(unless I hit the lottery for huge money, which most likely won't happen).

The wife and I have no real vacation planned, just a few days up in Maine, maybe visit my parents in NJ, etc.  We're planning on moving out of state, saving up for a house, etc.  We are, however, planning on visiting Vegas for our one year anniversary in October.  I have to stop procastinating and actually plan it.

Other than that, I'll play softball, golf and just enjoy the weather.  Good enough for me.

Mostly just doing the same as always - working!  But I'm also going to be spending some time finally buying "the ring" (no, not the movie), and figuring out how best to propose to my girlfriend!   :)

Hopefully we can sneak away for a little vacation time this summer as well, but nothing's been planned as of yet.

I'll be working, squirreling away cash for my big move to LA to attend the New York Film Academy's satellite at Universal Studios. Until that time, I'm thinning the collection so I can keep it at my parent's house, writing more and hopefully better stuff, and finally starting my band that I've decided to name Chew Electric Death, Snarling Cur! I've finally gotten rid of the nagging pain in my fret hand and learned some songs in the process. Now, to find like-minded goofballs and conquer the world! Of course, provided there isn't another band out the named like mine.
...you will know us as CEDSC! in case the name was too long.

You'll have to drop me a line when you get out here HMI.  I work just 10 minutes away from there, and am actually over at Universal from time to time auditing them!   ;)  So when are you actually moving?  Hope it goes well!

PLanning on going to GenCon at the end of the month, maybe DragonCon if I can get the time off from work, and then going to Seattle for a week in August to visit my sister-in-law and new baby.

I want to get there after the new year, but it may be even longer. God knows I need to get out of here, but I don't want it to be a mistake.
I'll let you know when I get ready to go, Matt. I may need some help finding my way around. :)
Thanks for the encouragement, Darby. We do seem to have a bit in common, now that you mention it. 8)

I'm going to be a new home buyer too!  My wife and I are in the middle of all the hoops you have to jump through to actually sign the papers.  It'll be great, we're finally getting out of the Seattle area and moving back where the sun shinesin summer and the snow falls in winter, Eastern Washington!

I can wear my WSU Cougar hat, and not recieve nasty looks and comments!
Stressed out?  Poop.  It'll make you feel better.

Congratulations on the new home Lemon-Viper!  That's awesome about moving to where the sun actually shines.  You'll have to take some pics of the new house and share with all of us.    8)

I just got back yesterday from a 10 day vacation to Hawaii. Now, I'm going to catch up on video games. My "Must Buy" list now includes X-Box Live, Ghost Recon - Island Thunder, KOTOR, and Galaxies. ;D

Oh yeah, I'm gonna see some movies too.

Mikey D- Vegas is a good time man... Lot's to do... Make sure to take in a few shows and just go wild otherwise...
We went for our honeymoon in Feb (newlyweds... but together 8 years 2 kids and a house later...).

It was a good time and we had... uhh... fun... uhh... yeah fun  :o

As for the summer...
Not much I actually hate summer... I'll be doing the house daddy thing... we plan on bringing the kids to a few amusement parks... and that fun schtuff.

Also we'll be seeing Aerosmith and Kiss in a little over a month now. Oh yes!!! You wanted the best... You got the best!!!
Gotta love me or leave me alone....

My "work-from-home" business is going to take a hit due to the summer season, especially living in NC. Guess I'll be joining the ranks of the working class, given I can find a decent job.

Otherwise, it's shaping up to be an awesome time for movies, so I'll be taking in my share of flicks. (Pirates this Wednesday!)
