Hello? Hello? Is anyone there?

Wow. I knew it had been a while, but didn't realize how long (or that I left it mid-trip in Houston). I had thought about updating a couple times, but as you can tell that didn't happen. Anyway let's catch back up a little.

Houston trip went well, no bad chalupas this time around. We ended up stopping in Shreveport, Louisiana one night. Not long enough to really do anything, but long enough I can say I've been in Louisiana now. I bought a GPS unit off eBay a while back, and used it for most of the trip (comparing it to Mom & Dad's AAA route info), and found it to work pretty well. I'm technically never "lost" because it knows where I am, and it's only mislead me once (and that was in Kansas City a couple of months ago).

E3 (Electronics Entertainment Expo) was held the first week of June this year, and was back closer to the spectacle of older E3's. I went in 2004, and 2005 and contemplated going back this year, but didn't know what to expect this time. There wasn't all that many ground breaking announcements, as some had already 'leaked' (PSP Go), and others were companies trying to copy Wii's motion control (Xbox Natal, and Sony's 'magic wand'). Out of everything announced the game that has me hyped the most is Scribblenauts for the DS. This game sounds phenomenal, your given a puzzle, and to solve it you write in any word, then that object drops into the world. Check out videos for it as it's kind of hard to explain, but it looks like so much fun.
