Happy Halloween!

As promised, here are my pumpkin carving pictures. On the left are the first ones [Eagles logo by me (left), spooky spider by my girlfriend Hilary (right)] and on the right is the more recent one, a pirate ship (because who doesn't love pirates?)

Speaking of pirates, check out this article. Pirates still exist! So much for becoming a Somalian fisherman!

Terrific Tuesday

Let me direct everyone to the LVH blogs on the left side. Both Dave and Kathryn are on the web team here at LVH. Hopefully Gail, the other member of the web team, will start a blog also. The next step after that? World domination.

So it turns out that Dave bought Guitar Hero 3 for Wii last night, after we briefly discussed my progress yesterday. This morning we pulled into opposing parking spots at the same time and found out that we had both played the game last night until we beat Slash (from Guns'n'Roses). Opposing parking spots and coincidental defeats of Slash? You tell me that's not metaphorically suggesting a guitar battle!

I carved another pumpkin last night since my first one (the Eagles logo) deteriorated (hmm another metaphor?) I'll post pictures later (check out Dave's jack-o-lantern pics in his blog!)

Go Sox!

Now that the World Series is officially over, nothing I post in this blog will change the fact that the Boston Red Sox are the 2007 World Series Champions! As mentioned before, I am a Philadelphia sports fan. However, my mother and father, New-England born, have successfully engrained into my mind (and my brother's minds) that...Red Sox = good and Yankees = bad. Other words have been used to describe the Yankees in my home but I'll keep this blog G-rated. Therefore, I am very happy that the Red Sox won it all again this year. They put on 4 amazing performances against the Rockies and proved that they deserve to be champs.

As for the news of A-rod announcing his departure from the Yankees, which came up during game 4 last night, I think I speak for all Sox fans when I say, "Stay out of Boston!"

Well...I am officially a Pennsylvanian. I exchanged my New Jersey license for a Pennsylvania license this afternoon. My parents and I entered the license building, took our numbers (C153-C155), and got ready for an exciting afternoon once we heard "DING" and saw a flashing "B955." The whole process took about 2 hours, so I sacrificed some precious saturday afternoon TV watching, but whatever.

Tommorow...the release of Guitar Hero III. Chances are that if I get my hands on a copy, you won't see any posts from me until my hands go numb from shredding on my "Reaper" (yes, my wireless guitar controller is actually called "The Reaper"...and just so you all know, my girlfriend bought it for me). But anyways...maybe I'll enlighten everyone with my progress tommorow.

I'm skeptical to write about sports in this blog, because as a Philadelphia fan, I am very superstitious. I'll leave it at that.

I'll also let it be known that I do not like Prince, or the Artist, or the Artist formerly known as Prince, or whatever the hell his name (or symbol) is. I heard this week that he was suing a family because they posted a video of their little son dancing to one of Prince's songs on YouTube. You gotta be kiddin' me! Personally, I liked the Limp Bizkit version of "Party Like it's 1999" which I believe they played at Times Square on MTV after the ball dropped to bring in '99 (I was so clever!) Other than that, the only thing I've enjoyed that is related to Prince is that skit that was on Chappelle's show, where Charlie Murphy and his crew lose a basketball game to Prince and his crew.

First Post!

Welcome to my millions of obsessive fans eagerly waiting for the monumental unleashing of my blog...your day has come. No seriously...My name is Kevin and I am currently an intern on the Web Team for Lehigh Valley Hospital in Pennsylvania. This is my first attempt at a blog, which I am hoping will become a habit for me and a roller-coaster ride for you (or atleast one of those quarter rides outside of the supermarkets). I am still working on topics that I can cover in this blog, but my bulleted list currently includes travel, books, entertainment, or just whatever comes to mind (like my first experience in a Panera this afternoon - I know, gripping stuff!)
