What Tree Are You?

I thought this was pretty interesting. I know, you could say these things about anyone and they'd come close enough to be scary.

Still look at this:

ME - Very strong minded, a bit self-willed, honest, loyal, independent,
hates contradiction or arguments, hard worker when wants to be,
loves life and friends, enjoys children and animals, few sexual
relationships, great sense of humour, has artistic talent and great

My dad - Intelligent, hard working, accepts what life dishes out, but not
before trying to change bad circumstances into good ones, hates
fighting and stress, enjoys getaway vacations, may appear tough,
but is actually soft and relenting, always willing to make sacrifices
for family and friends, has many talents but not always enough time
to use them, can become a complainer, great leadership qualities,
is jealous at times but, extremely loyal.

Annam - Of cool beauty, cares for its looks and condition, good taste, is not
egoistic, makes life as comfortable as possible, leads a reasonable
and disciplined life, looks for kindness and acknowledgment in an
emotional partner, dreams of unusual lovers, is seldom happy with
its feelings, mistrusts most people, is never sure of its decisions,
very conscientious.

What are you?

Top 5 Diggs of the week

Motorola introduces RAZR now with iTunes. Next stop, RAZR with BitTorrent and the ability (and battery power) to watch your favorite movies on the go!

Bones of ancient sea monster discovered. For any dinosaur buffs, this is a big WOW. While I'm not into dinosaurs as I was when I was a boy, this is still pretty cool I think.

Go Netflix! First Blockbuster, then Hollywood Video, then the World!

Humans controlling the weather? I saw this in a movie once. I swear I did. They tried to make it rain in some po-dunk town in Kansas and it cause massive tornadoes in India and earthquakes in Brazil and all sorts of nasty stuff. This is bad. This is real bad.

I'm not sure when this will ever come in handy since I don't suspect I'll ever be able to afford it, but hey if anyone out there is interested, here's the top five HDTV mistakes to avoid.

You're a cheater, Number 12!

That's right Blaine Smith, I'm talking to you. Scott and I went to USD to catch the Toreros vs. his UCLA Bruins. The Bruins had recently clinched the Pac-10 championship but obviously left their starters in Los Angeles. The Torreros dominated with the help of over 20 fouls. A good number of them coming from Midfielder/Defender Blain Smith. Good ol' Number 12 got a good ol' ribbing by Scott in the first half. If it wasn't for the 10 mile line for food he would have gotten another half of smack talk but after going up 4-1 midway through the 2nd half, we decided to just pack up and head home. One of the only times I'll ever root for an LA squad over a San Diego squad and they have to embarass me.
I like Torrero Stadium though. Small and quaint. Reminds me a bit of Southwestern College but the courtyard between it and the Jenny Craig Pavilion is really nice. The architecture of the press box and the Pavilion screams SPAIN. I'd go there again for a football game I think. Whether that's American Football or Soccer doesn't matter. Just as long as I get to rib Blaine Smith. Dirty cheating player that one.

Memorial recap...


Met at my Aunt and Uncle's around 9:30 and by 11am everyone had arrived.

We all headed to Heritage Community Park in Rancho Cucamonga and while quite informal, the event was deeply spiritual. It's hard to explain but I know she was there. It was really very emotional as one might understand.

On the front table set her picture and a portable CD/Radio playing some of her favorite Tori Amos pieces. We each spoke about our memories of her, how much we missed her and how great a setting this was. She never was one for formal events. We were at a park with an equestrian trail and she loved horses. A regular cowgirl, that one.

Anyways, we said our bits, hugged and went our way to B&Js for lots of food, drink and chitty chat. By food I mean party platters and some of my Aunt's great tortilla soup and chili. By drinks of course I mean plenty of Pepsi, Root Beer and orange soda. Anyways we stayed, got full and had a lot of good conversations, laughs, and all the sorts of things she would have loved.
