A few weekends ago I bought my first snowboard (a 2005 Burton Custom). I'm getting a little ahead of things since the official start of the season is still 136 days away, but there's nothing like being ready I suppose :) I still have to get bindings (it'd be pretty useless without them) and a travel bag.
Dad and I have also been doing more work on the pinball machine that's been in restoration since... forever. It's nearing completion now and the hard work is out of the way. All of the new cabinet artwork has been applied and only the front has to be trimmed back, then it's ready to bolt back together. It's starting to look like a pinball machine again. I haven't had time to update the pinball restoration page but I'll add photos to there soon which show the sanding/spray putty/painting/decal process.
The weather has been hot and sticky lately, which I hate, so I'll be glad when winter starts creeping into the air again.
Time for a brief textual update. The new year came swiftly and smoothly, while for others it was a more eventful experience.
Looking back, last year was at times unusual for me, and for some of my close friends as well. I'm thankful that they were who I thought they were. I went into the year with a bunch of personal things that I needed to work out, and often it was with the simplest of words from friends that they were resolved.
And now, time for sleep.
