wow, i can’t believe it is november already!
to celebrate daylight savings, i got into work extra, extra late today. actually, i had a pretty bad headache when i first woke up so i went back to bed thinking that i’d call in sick. but after another hour or so of sleep, i felt much better so i decided to go into work today.
i watched the grudge on friday night with a bunch of people. the movie was actually one of the better horror movies i’ve seen in a while. it’s interesting how whenever we as a mass of people go and watch horror movies, we collectively laugh uncomfortably after a scary moment. there’s some kind of relief knowing that it is just a movie and you are safe.
the movie had its creepy moments, but i was glad that the movie was particularly gory. i’m not much of a fan of gore. i thought the movie had better cheap scares than the ring and i also thought that it was more haunting than the ring. overall, i liked it. i had heard some people complain that the movie’s plot was not very cohesive, but i didn’t feel like that at all. my roommate was pretty affected after watching the movie and she apparently had some difficulty enterting the apartment upon returning from the theatre.
saturday, [url=http://jimmy.ocliw.com]jimmy[/url], john, [url=http://www.phamily.org]paul[/url], greg, josh, mike, and i went to wilder ranch state park for some mountain biking. the weather was rather windy at first and i was cursing myself for not bringing a jacket, but once we started biking it got warm. i’m not sure if i’m just that out of shape or if the trails were that hard, but i was walking a lot of the inclines on this ride. it wasn’t as technical as the ride at soquel, but then again…that was hell. this ride was fun, the downhill runs were especially fun…especially because i didn’t bail on this trip. it was good to get out on the bike again. it’s been a while. we strapped on four bikes onto the rear-mounted bike rack to get our bikes there.

a lot of us were huffing and puffing along on the trail, walking the bigger inclines.
greg sort of blasted through the whole park.
at the top of the one of peaks, it looked like there was a fire that burned away at most of the vegetation there. it looked rather odd.
