Holy Crap I'm Seventeen

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!

--And what a day. What a week. Last weekend Drew and I built a cannon out of a vacuum that currently fires stakes, and will soon shoot a magazine of ping-pong/golf balls.

--Our current endeavor is mounting it in a computer case over the fan intake holes. We've been cutting and drilling apart the case and all we need to do is mount the vacuum base in the case and bolt it down without marring the appearance of the case.

Here are some pictures:

--Here is a video of the very first test firing to see if it would actually fire a lawn stake (QuickTime 1.15MB .mov Format - Right-Click to 'Save-As') Since then we've boosted the power exponentially by 1) raising the primary intake off the ground (duh) and 2) opening up two more intakes.

--So, as stated above, today was my birthday, and it was a blast. Started out with my mom waking me up at 7:00 AM and presenting me with one of these really great Quicksilver button-down shirts I like so much. Couple of people complemented me on it today. Anyway, I drove to school in my Subaru, on which I recently repaired my front fender as some a***hole dented it and drove off without leaving a note. I got to school at 7:45 and went to the chorus room to practice for "Singing Valentines", a great program by the chorus that I auditioned for because they needed volunteers.

--A "Singing Valentine" is a card you can send to someone that will be accompanied by an A Capella, Barbershop style group that sings classic, romantic songs like "One Fine Day" and "Come Go With Me" while wearing pink and generally acting happy and flambouyant. I'm up on tenor with a group of friends and I will be getting out of all my classes and singing to many girls (including my girlfriend) on Valentine's Day. It should be fun.

--But I digress. Next I went through my Honors English class, my Physics class, went to lunch with another Andrew (making 3 total mentioned), and then had Acting. After that I drove Drew home and then my gf and her sister their house and was presented with presents (imagine that), specifically 'Pop-Rocks', a geeky shirt, the DVD of "Groundhog's Day", and a 'Sea-Monkey Starter Kit'! She knows me well.

--I went home and had a family party with my brothers and sisters (two big half-brothers that are basically whole, my little sister (who was also born on February Ninth!) my little brother, and my sister-in-law) in which I got some great gifts and tried on a costume for the grand opening of one of my big brother's Grand Opening of his franchise hair salon, Fantastic Sam's. I will be wearing it this Saturday. It shouldn't be too hard as I was the Easter Bunny (and will be again this year) for my home town.

Here's a picture of my mom and me and one of my sister and me:

--Drew and I have an update planned for the A-Squared Page, so stay sharp. We will be putting up for download a series of videos shot after midnight, last Saturday (we were working on the vacuum gun). While they're semi-psychotic, as a result of the hour they were filmed and the impromtu conditions they were created under, they should provide some of you with a laugh. The logo that appears at the end will be different as it was cut into the cardboard-box 'subject' of the films using a Drumel. Hope you like 'em.

--Well, it's 11:59 and my birthday's just about over, so I'd better go to sleep. Stay tuned for further posts and have a great rest of the week.

But let me ask you this: What would you choose?
Free Pixels or Ten million dollar?

And, did you know you get free pixel advertisement with that?

And, would you like to have a ten million dollar advertsing campaign? It can be done for less than $50.00 for the coming ten years!!

We might see you on the other side.
