I’ve had a really good week this week: Bakuretsu Con was fun and relaxing. Toured Ben & Jerry’s on Sunday with Jody. Free samples! Got my (BIG) federal tax return. Got buffalo wings for free on Monday for trying EasyDine. Ate those for lunch on Monday and dinner on Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday’s eye exam […]Read More The Week in Review
SPOILER FREE! I saw a special screening of The Matrix: Reloaded this morning. (With free food! Woo!) It was a very good movie and I enjoyed it a lot. Just make sure you sit through the credits to see the trailer for the final chapter in November. BIG POINTLESS SPOILERS: (highlight to have the film’s […]Read More Reload THIS!
I installed The Sims Online. I played it last night after work for a couple hours. Addicting. Got to make out with a couple girls — who were probably really fat, sweaty, 43 year-old men…but it’s best not to think about that. As far as I know, she really could have been a gorgeous blonde […]Read More Sims, Burning Gundam, and the convention experience
If you thought Everquest had a ton of people addicted, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I’m convinced that The Sims Online will blow past any MMORPG and reign supreme. Why? Chicks dig it. I mean, they REALLY dig it. More than half of the people who play The Sims (according to statistics I’ve seen) are […]Read More The Sims Online will put Evercrack to shame
Last night I went out to Derek, Jami, and Troy’s in Worcester for a Day of the Dead party. Most people wore costumes, but I didn’t since my back was still killing me. (Yeah, for once I actually wasn’t in the mood to wear a costume! Go figure!) It was feeling better by the time […]Read More Weekend summary
I discovered the cable channel “G4” this week. It’s a new cable channel devoted to video games. Interesting concept. The whole network looks like it was produced on a shoestring budget. The sets for their 13 original shows (at least the ones that even use sets) are pretty cheap looking…except for a couple big flatscreen […]Read More TV 4 Gamers
I had a $5 gift certificate to the Natick Mall, so I went out and blew it on a PlayStation magazine. (I still had to pay $3.99 cash. Expensive magazine!) Rikku’s on the cover and it came with a Final Fantasy X demo, so hopefully that will entertain me until I can afford the real […]Read More It’s free money!
I haven’t done an entry since I went to Maine for Christmas, so I should I can get up-to-date now… On Sunday, I drove to Maine and went straight to my brother’s birthday party at Graziano’s Casa Mia in Lisbon, Maine. Good food. Go there if you’re in the area (which is highly unlikely.) My […]Read More Post-Christmas Report
I’m way behind on my blog. I knew this would happen sooner or later, but now I’ll take a few minutes and quickly bring things up to date… Got a call from a headhunter on Tuesday afternoon, sent my resume via e-mail, never heard anything back. On Friday I e-mailed “just to make sure you […]Read More Catching up
