You May Be Missing Something!

My soon to be ex-wife moved the rest of her furniture out of the house last weekend. I thought this would make me feel better because it would allow me to finally move things around and populate the now vacant areas with new furniture for my man cave. I was wrong. It depressed me.
I hung out by the pool with my brother all weekend. He's teaching me how to do wood working. I'm not sure I have the patience for it. I have learned you can do quite a lot of stuff with a circular saw and a router (not the kind that routes packets). I've also learned that skin left white by too many hours in the man cave burns quickly and can be quite painful once properly cooked.
He's making an entertainment center for me. I may have blogged about this before, but I hate the fact that all homes in Texas must have fireplaces. Fireplaces are a waste of space in Dallas. It's almost never cold enough for long enough to justify the mess. Combine that with the amount of wall space they waste and it's just nutty.
So he has designed an entertainment center that rests on top of my hearth. It has space for my computer, my receiver, my center speaker, my Wii, my DVD player, my Blu-Ray player and my DVD's. I think it'll be way cool. Once it's completed, I'll post a new blog and if you are nice to me, I'll put up some pictures of it.
If I were really crazy and into self abuse, I'd post before and after pictures of my living room. It is currently furnished with bean bags, an old $100 sofa from Ikea and one of the black round chairs you buy from Wal-Mart for $10. Therefore, I think I'll avoid that shame.
Last night my Magic Jack on my Windows Home Server quit working. I'm not quite sure what's up with that. And one of my Windows Home Server hard drives is supplying me errors on boot. I'm not sure what's up with that either. If you are really curious and ask nicely I'll post my solution when I have it.
Oh yeah, I should also mention that I'm going to sign up for acting classes. I want to be in the movies!
