Finally…Spring weather

It’s finally warm and sunny outside. The last few days were almost perfect for going to the beach. Summer is just around the corner, and I just can’t wait.

I’ve been busy with work lately and haven’t put in as much running as I wanted to, but I did manage to keep a steady diet, well sort of. It’s about two weeks now and I’ve lost about 8 lbs. That’s pretty good for the small amout of running I’ve been doing. I also started biking again, but it’s still not enough. Anyone living in South San Jose area should try biking up Silver Creek road coming from Blossom Hill, it’s a doozy. I’ve done it several times. It’s great if you want to get a good leg workout and if you want to sweat by the gallons.

What’s even more gnarly this week is that my laptop that I ordered came in on Monday. It’s a Dell XPS m1710. It’s Dell’s flagship gaming notebook. Mine is equipped with a Centrino Core Duo 2.0 Ghz, 2 GB of Ram, 17″ LCD, and last but not least, a the Mobile Geforce 7900 GTX. This laptop is so bad ass that it eats it other laptops for breakfast, figuratively speaking of course. To think of it, I have this awesome gaming machine with no awesome game to take advantage of it. I guess I’ll have to pick one up soon. In the mean time, I can load this monster up with some high quality porn. Just kidding… even if I did it would look great on this high contrast LCD screen.

I got the weekend off so I will have a chance to mess around with my new toy. With some luck, I’ll even have some time to put in some good running. One more thing before I finish this entry. Anyone been to Forbes Mill? It’s a steakhouse in Los Gatos. I hear it’s great. Maybe I can check that place out over the weekend, anyone up for it?
