the tv lift cabinets

A high-definition television is a mainstay in most homes. We depend on this device to provide us with news and entertainment. After a hard day of work, relaxing on the couch in front of the TV helps many people unwind. On the weekends, watching sports or a good movie is commonplace across the country.

Televisions are not easy to view when sitting on the carpet or hardwood floor. They need a sturdy piece of furniture or some sort of way to position them near eye level or above for everyone to enjoy. With lift furniture for televisions, watching your favorite show will be enjoyed to its fullest potential. These cabinets have space to store Blu-ray™ discs, game consoles, or anything else like extra coffee table books or family photo albums that are not usually sitting out.

TV lift cabinets are available in many sizes and designs to fit anyone’s home and television setup. Traditional cabinets made of wood are made to last a lifetime. Modern cabinets are equally as strong but have the sleek design that some people may prefer over the classic selections. For anyone looking to upgrade where they set their flatscreen television, browsing online to discover a cabinet fit for the décor is the best first step in the search for that perfect addition to a living room or bedroom.

the end of radio silence

Over three months have gone by since I last updated this collection that I have been consistently maintaining for over five years. The neglect was not intentional, and I haven’t completely lost my passion to write new content on here infrequently.

I can’t say that I have been busy, because I have just been going through similar motions day after the day these past few months. I don’t plan on ever abandoning this as long as my fingers can touch keys to put together sentences on a glowing screen and the ultranet continues to transfer ones and zeroes back and forth between its many machines that maintain its existence.

I have definitely been in a creative dry spell lately, and I have been content with just being on this planet earning my keep. I hope to get back to updating this again at least once a month and hopefully more, but I’ll just have to see how the days go and if I’m up to it. 2012 has arrived. The web is moving and growing faster than ever. One day, the blog will be a vintage communication that will always continue to be around.

Print, radio, and television have a tough enough time keeping up with the speed that information circulates, but they have successfully adapted to the change in the exchange. Blogs can be updated just as fast and often as wall posts and tweets but require more effort to fulfill the format obligations.

I will still use this as my primary outlet when I feel like punching out some rants into the blogosphere, so check back every now and then. Thank you for reading this as long as you have, and please continue to do so. You’re always welcome to it. Peace out.

the respect for durable machines

The last day of July has quickly arrived which marks the last day that I have to squeeze a post in to keep up with my minimum of one personal post per month update that I’ve been managing for a few months now. I don’t have much to update you with here, so I’ll hopefully keep it short this time.

Texas heat has been in the 100+ range for many days straight. We are going to San Antonio today to go to Sea World. I had a delicious barbacoa torta with onions and cilantro added on Saturday morning. I also took a nap that lasted much longer than I wanted.

I have finally caught up on Masterchef. Other TV shows with new episodes that I’m currently keeping up with are: Breaking Bad, Louie, Weeds, Entourage, Ugly Americans, and Hell’s Kitchen.

This month has been pretty redundant. I continue to work 40 hours 5 days a week like many Americans earning their living do. The weekends go by way too fast, but I am still very grateful that I get a two-day moment between the five daily doses of monotony that I consider a job. After each workday, I like to stay indoors like many Texans until the weather cools off a bit.

I have to get some rest now since I have to get up early for our day trip to San Antonio to visit Sea World. I’ve never been, and I hope we have a good time. I know it’s late, but I’m still up since I had that long nap. Until later on in August… Peace out.

the ice cream melts

In order to keep the promise to myself to update this collection of writing at least once a month, here is June 2011’s installment of what’s going on in my life.

June has flown by fast like the previous five months of this year so far, and I key this in during the last few hours of the last day of this month. With hope of not spending too much time updating you to be able to get the few items on today’s checklist complete before I call it a night, I will again attempt to keep this post short.

Almost effortlessly, I had three job interviews this month, none of which got me better employment with another company therefore amounting to a waste of my time. The first interview was almost successful, but something occurred on the company’s end that prevented me from getting the position. I’ll just say the person I was replacing didn’t want to be replaced after all. The company claimed to make a difference in people’s lives, and they definitely made a difference in mine.

The second interview was a subpar phone interview. I didn’t have what it took to nail the interview, and the person conducting the interview was a condescending jerk that clearly didn’t understand my email reply about not having all of the experience necessary but possessed the passion to earn it.

I nailed the third interview which was a phone interview as well but still ended up not getting the job. I’m under the impression that my status of being currently employed had a big influence on their decision, since I’m sure they needed to fill the position immediately. I am also happy to admit that I was overqualified for the position but was going for it to bring change to my day job existence.

So much for keeping this post short.

I saw a dentist for the first time in years. I bet it’s been over five years, closer to six or seven. I had a toothache for a whole week that rendered me almost useless for a few days. I would just work my eight hours then rush home to suffer the excruciating pain. The dentist referred me to an oral surgeon that extracted the tooth, my first adult tooth I’ve had to lose. I still have all of my wisdom teeth, but those will hopefully be pulled some time next year before they cause me any serious problems.

My eight-hour workdays have recently turned into ten-hour workdays. Purgatory has extended my shift, because they need my mad skills. Ha. I can’t really complain about getting a fatter check and the boost in income that I was seeking with those interviews that fell into my lap.

M&I went to San Antonio this past weekend to visit one of my best friends and his wife. We ate at Timbo’s for lunch then checked out the zoo. For dinner, we went to Big Lou’s Pizza to feast on their 42″ pie. Our party of seven was unfortunately unable to finish it, but I was able to consume my share. The pizza is delicious, and I would go back but maybe not get such a big pie unless we promise to dominate it.

I did have the dream of conquering the Four Horsemen burger at Chunky’s but decided against it after reading reviews on Yelp, hearing about the horror stories involving vomit, the questionable cleanliness of the restaurant itself, and the fact you get a barf bucket, the option of wearing gloves, have to sign a waiver, and have to pay 17 bucks if you don’t finish it. Maybe I’ll have the courage one day but maybe not.

I attempted my fifth victory of the Pluckers Fire In The Hole challenge earlier in the month. The wings were enormous on our visit, and the 50-piece we split actually had 56 pieces. The drummies were almost the size of regular drumsticks. Our defeat was a result of the amount of food and not the heat. This was my first failure for the challenge, but I will get on the South Lamar Wall of Flame one of these days.

We also tried a new wing bar called Wingzup that has a Ghost pepper wing sauce. Unfortunately, it’s made with Ghost chili powder, not fresh peppers. It was decently fiery, but no Fire In The Hole. The service was excellent. The food quality and presentation was stellar. They have a neat gimmick of serving beer in plastic towers with a tap at the bottom. We may return if we’re in the area. They gave us discount coupons, so that makes it even more desirable to return.

I am so relieved that my toothache has been eliminated as you can tell with all of the food talk you just read. The experience of suffering a toothache diminished my spirit, but that is behind me now.

Summer television programming is slowly making its way back into our lives. I’ll be hanging on to my current job that isn’t so bad for a while longer. Life is treating me well, and I will update this again some time next month. Peace out.

the obligatory end of the month update from yours truly that normally does not have ridiculously long titles for posts

Despite the ridiculously long title as mentioned in said title, I will attempt to keep this particular post as close to the bare minimum as to not only make it easier for you to finish reading but also for me to get all of this off the backburner in order to move forward to more of the new (and because I still have not adopted the use of Twitter, Bookface, and the cornucopia of other online social networking tools as a daily means of connecting with others wearing digital shrouds and expressing themselves in an ambiguous tone often misinterpreted.)

I have completed my program in education enhancement and will relieve myself from attending any classes for college credit in the near future.

I have reignited the enjoyment I receive from viewing the magnificent work of Alfred Hitchcock, mainly his television series but his full-length features are being watched as well.

I’m nearing some crossroads in my career. Yes, I wanna go for a ride. Peace out.

the april drizzle and confetti eggs

April won’t pass me by without an update to this collection I’ve been maintaining for years. This month has been super busy which made it fly by like the others. I’m committed to not missing a month without writing a post here to keep it going, so here we go.

This semester is almost over. I only have a couple weeks after this one until I’m done with enhancing my education for a while. I will definitely be relieved when I don’t have to attend class or waste my time on labs and assignments.

I’m happy that I made it through, but I didn’t make it without kicking and screaming. Nonetheless, I didn’t give up, and I hope the effort rewards me more than just the fact that I completed the goal of going back to school to enhance my skills.

If any of you wonder why I don’t update this as often as I’ve done before, here’s the main reason why: My day job requires me to be in front of a computer most of the day. My class work requires me to utilize a computer to complete my labs and assignments. Everything from managing my finances to communicating with the world to acquiring my television programming involves me staring in a glowing box with my fingers tapping a keyboard and clicking a mouse. The way I currently live has me glued to a machine for most of my waking hours. Therefore, I do my best not to immerse myself in computers but the rest of the world wants me to do otherwise.

Mortal Kombat and Portal 2 on PS3 are my games of choice right now. I’ve played Mortal Kombat a little bit but haven’t really done much with Portal 2 other than played a few stages in co-op mode but I’m loving them both.

I plan on updating at least once more this upcoming weekend before the month is officially over. For those of you with Flash installed, jump jump:

Peace out.
