I have made the first steps to making my own web site and I'll be hosting my own blog eventually. Although it's not a good sign that I can't even keep up this one. But I like to tell myself that once everything is up and running, I'll actually update. We'll see. The Dreamweaver for Dummies book is kind of long. BUT! At least we have a server... there's a start.

I've been doing an internship at a gaming studio for the last month or so. It's been fun and interesting so far. Everyone is really laid back, to the point where they like to come in at 11. That also means no one is leaving until at least 7pm which is way too late for me. I go in twice a week to do some testing or sit in on some meetings and then work from home the rest of the week doing research and game design. It's nice to know that people value your opinion because you play too many games and they want to know what you think and how their ideas compare. I don't mean to say that my opinion means all that much, but at least I've played a wide variety of games and have read a lot about them to know whether people like it or don't like it. That's what happens when video games becomes a hobby where all your disposable income goes to.

Right now I'm playing Okami and I was playing Tomb Raider Anniversary before I lent it to a coworker. I think I'll try to play Super Paper Mario next....

In other news, we're adopting another furbaby! They think he's a Jack Russell Corgi mix and he's only about 11-12 weeks old right now. We should be able to bring him home by Thursday. I just hope he gets along with our lab. We're going to name him Stitch so I hope that doesn't jinx us. He seems like he really wants to play with Bailey, but our dog now, he's 100 lbs of chicken and freaks out over the tiniest things. At least he loves dogs though, I just don't think he cares too much about dogs that don't come to his eye level. Either way, I think Stitch will be very fond of Bailey and I hope they only learn good things from each other. I have nightmares about this little demon tearing up the place, but hopefully he'll be an angel, just like Bailey ;)

Canada Day was Sunday, and obviously it goes by unnoticed here. The fourth of July is tomorrow and we'll be spending it eating and gorging ourselves. We paired up with a friend to host day long festivities since we have the BBQ. I hear it's going to be hot... which is disappointing because so far the weather has been perfect. So perfect in fact, that we've actualy gone hiking twice!
