Tomorrow I'm going over to the coast for a few hundred caches... haha. Should be fun as long as the weather cooperates.

Last night was some majore storm with some 7000 recorded lighting strikes and rain so hard it kept everyone awake all night... that is everyone but me. I slept right through it. Heard it start raining and that was it.
It was pretty cold today compared to the 90 degree days we'd been having. I have all week off of work so I plan to go to the coast on Tuesday... I'm hoping for good weather. Uncle Duck hid some 6 new caches over in Bandon... that will give me a lot to do.

28% for pick in the top 3
28% chance for pick #5
41% chance for pick #6
3% chance for pick #7 (8 is posable, but only likely if the draft is rigged)
I'll give a blog update as soon as its announced. Until then you can play with this Draft Lottery simulator... its a lot of fun.

It is also a time of peace and quiet in the valley as Lazyboy takes an extended trip to Maui. I've heard the natives have a name for him "Huna mea makamae wahine ho'okamakama" which is roughly equivelent to "cache-whore".

To celebrate Episode 3 I hid a new cache, May the Force be with you. It has even been approved and found already.
After episodes 1 & 2 my expectations were low... so it wasn't hard for the movie to exceed them. Lots of lightsaber duels... which means less talking... which means a better movie. I wouldn't take young children... this is a pretty dark film. The movie was almost 2 1/2 hours long, but still seemed rushed at times. You know what happens in the end and therefore the surprise element is lost. Overall if you've stomached the last two you'll want to see this one.
It is now 4 days until the NBA Draft Lottery.

It is now 5 days until the NBA Draft Lottery.
At 6pm today I will be watching Star Wars Episode 3. The long wait is just about over. I asked and got permision to leave work and go see it... I think I can wait... but just in case I can go see it if I like :)
I am house sitting again tonight and tomorrow so I'll have dial up internet... any movie review might have to wait for tomorrow's blog entry.

It is now 6 days until the NBA Draft Lottery
In about 33 hours I will be sitting and watching Star Wars :) Its been a long six years since episode 1. In that time I graduated from OSU, had 2 jobs, geocaching was invented, World Trade centers were attacked, Afghanistan was invaded, Iraq was invaded
As for geocaching... I don't have anything new. Might find some caches this weekend depending on the weather... but that is all after Star Wars

It is now one week until the NBA Draft Lottery
Well here I sit at work just waiting. In about 54 hours and 20 minutes plus previews I will be watching Star Wars Episode 3... the wait is killing me. Its not near as bad as the wait for Episode 1, but its still bad. Much like Episode 1 it can probably never really live up to my expectations.
The NBA Draft Lottery is next Tuesday and for only the second time ever the Blazers will be part of the lottery... this year the Blazers will have a draft pick between 1-8 (but not pick #4). There is no solid #1 player in the draft this year like Tim Duncan or LeBron James. Would still be nice to have one of the top 3 picks. We'll see on Tuesday.

I noticed today the next pizza event is up... Pizza XXVIII. So far 2005 has had some pretty fun events so I imagine this will be another good one.
My federal jury duty was suppose to be today but it was postponed to August 3rd, which is my birthday... what a birthday gift huh? Federal Jury duty is very different they only call you for one trial. Now I have to hope and pray that they reach a plea bargain and I don't have to go.

So last night was poker night. Last time I lost $7 so this time I practiced a little. More or less before the last game I had seen 7-card and Texas Hold'em played, but I had never played myself. I was also introduced to Omaha Hi/Lo and 7 Card Hi/Lo. So this time I had a much better understanding of each game. So I bought in at $30 and never had to buy again... cashed out $107 for a winnings of $77... so I got my $7 back :) plus a little extra. I was much more aggresive in my betting and while I lost a few rough hands I did well in the hands I won.
I wonder if a friendly geo-poker event would go over... no money, but maybe a prize of some kind for 1rst, 2nd, and 3rd. It might be fun...
Well Saturday looks like a nice day so I should get off my butt and find some caches. I'll pull up my last pq and see where the best collection of caches is.

Tonight is also poker night... I'll see if I can't get my $7 back. I've been practicing on partypoker.net with mixed results. I tend to gamble more when the money isn't real, but I think watching a lot of hands play out will help me know when to put my money on the line in a real game. We'll see how it goes.
As for geocaching I haven't done much. I got June 10th off of work so I can go to the Pine Mountain Geo-Star Party... that should be fun. Lots of caches over there I haven't found.

More or less I have just been sitting around eagerly awaiting Star Wars Episode 3 (May 19). Sure the last two pretty much sucked... but this one could be different. Despite it all I'll probably go see it in the theater a couple of times. Right now I am pondering asking if I can take time off of work to see it... for Episode 1 I watched the 9:15pm showing... for episode 2 I was unemployeed and could go at 11:45am... that is what time I'd like to go because it will be less crowded, but I might be pushing my luck. I have federal Jury Duty that same week... also I have asked for a Friday off in June for the 3rd Annual Pine Mountain Geo-Star Party. Some people wouldn't think twice about asking for time off, but I am rarely ever gone from work. Maybe I'll go see the midnight showing on the 18/19th I'm usually not that hard core, but this is the last movie as far as I know. Star Wars is in my blood... the first movie I ever saw in the theater was the Return of the Jedi, and I had a ton of Star Wars toys that I should have left in the box and never touched.
