89. Play a round of mini golf

Found out that the Niece's complex has a mini-golf course, so I gathered my foursome and hit the little links.

It was only nine holes and not in very good condition, but we had fun.

49. Visit nieces in Miami

So the reason I ended my 360 Achievement streak was so that I could visit my for amazing nieces in Miami. Technically they are in Weston but I did fly into Miami. I was able to checkout the fabulous Fort Lauderdale beach action.

OK it was an overcast February afternoon but I was very disappointed/disgusted at the "scenery." There were a half dozen women in bikinis but not a one that should have been. Plus there was a thirty-ish looking dude making out in the surf with a 15 year old looking young girl. Not something you want to see/think about when you are spending time with your four pre-teen nieces.

While we were at the beach I got to partake in something I have not done in a long time: Fly a kite.

I was shocked at how easy it was to put together and get into the air. So much easier then it used to be.

31. Earn one Xbox 360 Achievement every day for a month

January 10th to February 12th. Gain of 1,420 points in 9 games.

This was a lot of fun. It made me break out some of my older games that I had either never played or had not touched in a while.

I am total into Oblivion and can't wait for Bioware to release Fallout III.

On a side not my 360 now has it's own blog. It is mad at me right now because I am working on number 49.

38. See a Presidential candidate

I am marking this one as done, because I made a valid effort and had a good time in the process.

Today I went to the Seattle Center to the Obama rally. I went there with Danny from work and arrived at about 10 AM with the doors opening at 11. I probably should gotten there a little sooner. I have made a little map to show the line situation.

That is a lot of people.
