Damn thugs!

Well, I woke up this morning, took a shower, got everything ready to drive up to Dalton for the weekend. As I was walking to my car, I saw my window open on my passenger side door. I thought to myself "did I leave my windows open last night?". Well guess what? I didn't. As I got closer, I saw shattered glasses and then realized someone had broken into my car over night. Luckily, all they took was my navigation system and my chargers. I am so pissed! This is the first time my car was ever broken into. Well take a look at the photos below, hopefully I can get my window fixed soon as it looks like it may rain today.

Clippers at Hawks

Went to the Philips Arena Saturday night with Uncle John, Ashton, Aly, Wah and Paul to watch the Los Angeles Clippers take on the Atlanta Hawks. They were having the Clark Howard's special night, $7.50 for tickets and $1 concessions (hot dogs, popcorn, and fountain drinks) before the game. Also, $1 fountain drinks during the game. The seats were not the greatest, but what do you expect when you pay $7.50 for tickets. Take a look at our sky view of the court.

Well the game started out alright. Clark Howard did the introductions of the players. Mike Bibby did not play in this game, but we did get Joe Johnson back. Unfortunately, it was not enough. The Hawks kept it pretty close, until the 4th quarter when they pretty much gave up and Clippers just could not miss a shot. The final score, 121-97 Clippers with a blow-out.

But it was a fun night. Ashton and Aly's first professional basketball game at Philips Arena and you cannot beat $1 hot dogs. Check out the shot of Ashton and Aly with our boy, Joe Johnson.

iPhone baby!!

Well I finally got the iPhone. In fact I am posting from it right now. It is an 8GB 3G iPhone. So far I am very impress with it. This phone has a lot of features that many phones lack, for example, wifi and 3G on the same phone. Only big downside is the battery life. With a combination of having all these features turned on, battery life is not very good. But I still love it. Especially all the apps that as available for it. Too bad I'm too cheap to pay for one. Only free apps for me. I highly recommend to anyone to get an iPhone.

Clean, Shiny and Smooth

Hey guys, well this past Friday I took my car over to Lee's for a much needed detailing on my car. After owning it since October, it has not seen a coat of wax. So we washed the car, claybar and waxed the car, then vacuumed. The car is now clean and smooth. Also, my windows are now tinted with 35% FormulaOne Pinnacle Series tint from Oasis Glass Tinting in Chattanooga, TN. Check out the new pics of the car.

Portrait of Tanner

My cousin Gary was in Georgia these past couple of weeks taking care of my grandparents. So I asked him while he is in town to paint a portrait of Tanner. He agreed and did a portrait of Tanner using pastel on a 16x20 pastel board. He did a great job with it and it looks incredible. Check it out:

He also did a portrait of Wah's dog, Taz. You can check it out at Gary's Art blog by clicking on the link "Gary's Art" on the right under Other Blogs. Thanks again, Gary.

Marietta Diner - As Seen On TV

Since Si was in town this weekend, he wanted to try out a new restaurant that he saw on the show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. We went and ate at Marietta Diner. It is located in Marietta, GA, just a little down the way from the Big Chicken. I am surprised that I have never ate at this restaurant before since I lived down the street when I went to Southern Poly. This place was pretty good. It may be a bit pricey for a diner, but the portions are pretty big. None of us could finish the meal that we ordered.

Warning: Images may make you drool.

Ironman - Must See!

Hey guys, sorry I have not posted in such a long time. My boring life doesn't leave me much to post about. Well this weekend Si stopped in Georgia after a business trip in Orlando. So we went to watch Ironman on Friday night. I have to say, this is probably the best superheroes movie, so far. The acting, the plot, the graphics, and the action scenes were just frickin' awesome. Even if you are not a comic book person, you will still love this movie. Even Wah, who doesn't know much about Ironman, enjoyed it and is looking forward to the sequel. There were even some scenes in the movie that made Heartless (Si) laugh out loud in the theatre. This is a must see in the theatre movie, so get off your butts and go watch it.

Well a few new things have happened over the past week, so keep an eye out for more posts coming soon.
