Hurricane Kyle

Kyle, which formed Thursday east of the Bahamas, was moving north Sunday morning.
Kyle, which formed Thursday east of the Bahamas, was moving north Sunday morning.

So apparently I’m famous yet again! Hurricane Kyle is making it’s way towards the US and Canada.

Kyle, a Category 1 hurricane, is forecast to make landfall late Sunday or early Monday near the border between Maine and Canada.

As of 11 a.m. Sunday, Kyle’s center was about 140 miles (225 kilometers) east-southwest of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and 355 miles (570 kilometers) southwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the National Hurricane Center said.

The storm formed Thursday east of the Bahamas.

Kyle’s maximum sustained winds were near 80 mph (130 kph), with higher gusts. The winds had strengthened since Saturday night, when maximum sustained winds were barely above hurricane strength at about 75 mph, forecasters said.

A Category 1 storm has winds from 74 to 95 mph.

Kyle was moving north Sunday morning at near 24 mph and was expected “to pass east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and the coast of Maine later today and tonight,” the forecasters said.

It’s been a long while since the last Hurricane Kyle. Maybe this one will be more memorable, but in a safe way. 😉

Happy Birthday Me!

Haha, I just had to. 😛 So today is my 22nd Birthday! I’m just now to the point where every birthday becomes more and more of a disappointment, lol. It’s cool up to 21, but after that nothing special happens and you’re only getting older.

Hopefully I can make something fun happen!

Well, eight more birthday’s until I’m officially getting old. I’ve got to make the most of my birthday’s before then, haha, so wish me luck! 😀

Welcome back into the wild

Well, I just got back home from a great party with some of my home-boy friends. They had a good throw down up in Boone, NC with a bunch of people I hadn’t met before.

I randomly ran into Brandon and Scuff at Ingles in Boone! How weird is that!? I mean, Brandon’s always in Boone, but the fact that I just randomly went to Boone and saw him there..that’s funny!

Adam stayed at the party since it was pretty much for him, but Will went with me to grab some more party “materials”. 😉 You know…cup-cakes, sodas, candles, balloons…lol, just kidding. The “other” party items. 😛

It was really interesting to hangout with them again! It brought back some memories from childhood..which is always cool.

I mean, once you go off to college, you lose touch with your best friends from home and make new friends. I can’t say that I like either group of my friends more than the other, because that would be a lie..but wow..isn’t it great to catch-up with old friends again!

We just played some pong, a little sequence (the board game..only modified for the party mood), talked on a balcony, walked up a deserted road and downed a few bottles and basically just had an all around great time!

It’s sad that when you move off to college you have to leave them behind and start all over, but at least I know now that good friends are friends for life. We just connected again almost like we hadn’t been a day apart!

Sometimes you hangout with friends again and have nothing to do or talk about, but wow…that was probably the best time I’ve had with them yet.

It was great to catch-up with Will and talk to him about what’s going on in his world and what’s going on in my world. You know, just the basic definition of catching up.

When I first called up Will last night, he was like “Kyle??….Kyle Baker??? Holy crap man! I can’t believe it’s you! What the heck are you getting into tonight!?” Straight from long time no see to what’s taking you so long to join us and party?!

It was like a re-bonding experience. Fantastic!

Then later, Adam and I sat up until like 5:30 am playing Halo 3 on his xBox 360. I pretty much got pwn’d every round, but it was cool.

We sat up talking about all kinds of cool stuff. He told me about how a long time ago when we were kids he came over to my house and we sat down at my families piano and I showed him how to play this piano part while I played to other half of it.

It was just cool to listen to him tell me about a memory like that. Honestly, I didn’t recall any of it..but it made me feel awesome to know that I made a cool memory with one of my friends so very long ago..even if I didn’t remember it.

I feel like I remember so many little things that I did with my friends that they probably don’t remember and those little things were the best times of my childhood.

Anyhoo, I’ve got to get some sleep now. More partying and socializing is in the works for later this evening!

I hope everyone is having a blast as well. You only get one summer per year. 😉 Use it wisely. 😛

Happy leap year

globeHey everyone! Just wanted to say Happy “Leap year” today! February 29, 2008! Also, Happy Birthday today to those of you who are Feb. 29th babies! 😀

veryone should make a good memory today! It only comes once every four years you know. 😉

A person born on February 29 may be called a “leapling” or “leaper”[10]. In common years they usually celebrate their birthdays on 28 February or 1 March.

For legal purposes, their legal birthdays depend on how different laws count time intervals. In Taiwan, for example, the legal birthday of a leapling is 28 February in common years, so a Taiwanese leapling born on February 29, 1980 would have legally reached 18 years old on February 28, 1998.

Hannah’s Birthday Beat

Here’s a little treat for everyone and especially Hannah for her 21st birthday! It’s a little skit that her friends performed for her at her party. (Thanks Sara for the video! 😀 ) Here are the lyrics:

in west of Raleigh born and raised
outside in nature she spent most of her days
chillin’ out, learnin’ bout trees all cool
to NC State she goes to school
When a few of her friends who can rap so good
Brought this birthday beat to her neighborhood
She turns twenty one today, the bars should be scared
That their liquor and beer will dry out from here to there
We whistled for a bus and when it came near
We said get Hannah to the bar near here
If anything this Wolfline had no flair
But we said yo, forget it, she’s so drunk she don’t care
She, pulled, up to the bar about ten or eleven
And yelled to the bartender – a drink! I’ll be in heaven!
She looked at her kingdom she was FINALLY here
To sit at a bar and legally drink beer!
