The Geeks shall inherit the Earth

For some reason, my lovely wife saw this Swiss Army knife with a built-in 256MB flash drive, and thought of me! I used the flash drive, the screwdriver and the light in just the first 3 hours I was at work! Thank you baby :) If anybody is looking for Christmas presents for Morgan, you can pretty much buy anything from this site, and I'll be happy....

Adventures in CRACKberry land


If you have spent any time with me in the past year, chances are you've seen me tapping away on my beloved Blackberry. More so than any other gadget I've ever owned, this baby has changed my life. However, she has two major shortcomings, although only one of which is her fault: first, I get very little reception at home thanks to being a Verizon customer. It's enough to get data on, but not enough for voice. The other, and this one is a little more personal, is that if you've ever seen me using it as a phone, then you know how big of a dork (ok, how much bigger of a dork) I look like holding what appears to be a calculator up to my ear.

As we have recently re-signed here at the apartment for another year, I am in need of an upgrade. Although it will pain me greatly to give up my baby, it is kinda important that I be reachable when those late night ad problems strike. With this in mind, I must fire up my reality distortion field (not to be confused with the somebody else's problem field) and convince my wonderful-human-being-whom-I-am-so-lucky-to-work-for boss to let me get one of these puppies. She's purdy.....and built in GPS!!!! Firggin' SWEET!! Anyway, keep those cards and letters coming people - Morgan needs a new toy!

Somewhere out there exists a version of Morgan that actually updates his blog

I read this article and decided I'd share with the group. I'm not generally one to start a debate on quantum mechanics at the local watering hole (cuz I think getting a passing grade in Algebra 1 is a prerequisite) but I've always been facincated by the many-worlds theory. Think of every major decision you've ever made - now imagine a universe that exists outside of our own where you made the opposite decision. This can be anything from asking Jennifer to the prom instead of Kelly, or having french toast one morning instead of pancakes. What is your life like in a different universe where you turned left instead of turning right? Obviously, the implications of such a state - one in which anything that can happen, does - are profound. Many opponents of the theory are seemingly driven primarily by the belief that you cannot possibly have a soul if there is an infinite number of one individual spread across different realities. But I say that my soul is no more or less intact than that of duplicate Morgan #1199r249929ssl2k299911k, who is supreme ruler of the universe. Well, his universe anyway.

The way of the Ninja

Not much has been going on this week....been pretty much just eating, sleeping, working and oh yeah....having a video game make me it's bitch. The game I speak of is Ninja Gaiden Black - an update to a game that ate up about a month of my life last year. This time around they made it even harder, and I'm loving every frustrating, irritating and controller-slamming moment of it. Given that I gave up baseball about 15 years ago, and haven't played any competitive tennis in a looooong time, it seems that video games are the only thing I have left to get those competitive juices flowing. Hey, at least the juices are still flowing. If I ever start to look anything like this, it's a safe bet they aren't anymore....

They're even better in person

In the spirit of my last post, at the last minute I decided to go see the Broncos play in Jacksonville yesterday. As you can see from the picture, we didn't have the greatest seats, and it did rain off and on, but even so a great time was had by all. Oh, and the Broncos won 20-7, much to the chagrin of a few obnoxious (though not as bad as some others we've been around) Jaguar fans. After the game we found ourselves right in the middle of a huge crowd of Bronco fans who had gathered outside the buses that were taking the Bronco players to the airport. Sadly we couldn't stay and wait for them to show, as we had to get back to begin our bus ride from hell. However on the way home, the Bronco buses and a police escort passed us on the road. To think.....I was that close to Mike Shanahan, Jake Plummer, Champ Bailey, and the rest of the gang. It got me thinking about what I'd say to Mike Shanahan if I ever met him. There's a million things I should want to ask him, but the only thing I keep coming up with is this: how in the world can John Elway be a Republican? Breaks my heart every single time I think of it....but then again, nobody's perfect.
