Party in Nerdville

Last night we had a large group of friends and cousins over. One of them brought his PS2 and all four Guitar Hero games. (And two guitar controllers.)

I've never played this game before, but it really was a lot of fun. I'd like to see maybe a Christian rock version, because the music wasn't exactly to my taste, but the mechanisms of the game themselves were very interesting. I think it would be a lot of fun to play a drum version of the same thing.

Tina and her husband were there, as well as A's three cousins that live in town and one other friend, Kergin. (He was the one who brought the games.) We're a strange group when we're all together, but we have fun anyway, despite the fact that every single one of us has always been just a little bit different than everyone else.

I took lots of pictures, and plan to post those as soon as I can, but the change in computer has left me high and dry on the picture front. I want to be able to resize them etc. and I can't get my old copy of Adobe Photoshop to work.

I'm thinking of looking for a new picture program. Do any of you out there have any advice on which one would be the best?

I want to live in Nerdville, I would love to have a group of people to get together with, and play games, and visit. I miss that.

I LOVE this sentence... "We're a strange group when we're all together, but we have fun anyway, despite the fact that every single one of us has always been just a little bit different than everyone else."

Before bying a new photo program, check to see if your computer has the new updated version of Paint. It can do wonders with photos - and has a lot of editing features now.

Isn't that what makes us individuals--that everyone of us is just a little bit different from everyone else? lol Hurray for strangeness!

Picture It is my favorite...but, of course, true to form, I like the old version better than the new one that came with my computer...so I uninstalled the new one and put my old one back on.

Joe likes Picasa.

I use GIMP for pictures, because it's free. :) There's a ton of stuff you can do with it, though I'm not sure how it compares to the other programs people have mentioned. (I've heard it has most of the functionality of Photoshop though.) Anyway, it wouldn't hurt to look at, since it's freeware and you can always delete it if you don't like it.
