Live Spaces on life support (and other bad jokes)

Been a while since I posted from here and out into the world, but a quick update for those not in the know.
Family’s been doing fine for the most part, the sole exception being my brat of a nephew who came over to Texas seemingly to consume like a locust swarm… Suffice to say, it didn’t work out, and after he nearly got ran out of the county because of an altercation that got the law involved, he ran off to his mother’s place out of state.
Speaking of family issues, my mom celebrated her 1 year anniversary of my stepdad’s passing away back in August, crying for three days while holding his ashes. Shortly after he died back in 2009, mom found that she had breast cancer. Fortunately, it got caught in time and over the course of the past year, received chemotherapy and radiation.
I ended up taking a summer job this past summer at a local water park, which out here takes a lot out of you. On the plus side, I saved enough money to rent my textbooks for fall and buy myself a new BlackBerry(R) Curve 8530.
Right now, I’m in my usual state of post-Thanksgiving blah, further being compounded by being a publicly-closeted gay man (in an area that is decidedly not a gay mecca) and a furry without a significant other. I’m planning out my tax refund to be received late Jan-early Feb 2011, of which I plan on building a new computer.
Finally, a quick note to all people catching my blog mirror on Windows Live, this will be the last post mirrored onto Windows Live Spaces, as Microsoft is closing it down and migrating everyone to WordPress.com hosted blogs. Since I self-host the main blog mirror and crosspost using WordPress and/or notify the mirrors and such on other services (LiveJournal, MySpace, Twitter, etc…) I have decided to just delete the Spaces crossposting plugin for WordPress off of the main blog mirror after this post and save my Windows Live Spaces blog mirror contents for offline consumption and possible upload, then delete the blog mirror. I apologize for any inconvenience caused.
