      Are you coming?

      in Forums > Are you coming? | Follow this topic

      As we prepare, there's a lot that depends on how many people show up. We know there's still a lot up in the air, but we want to get a feel for where people stand. Please answer as best you can right now. If you say you're gonna come and something comes up to prevent it, we understand. We'll only T.P. your car, not cut the brake lines.

      This can't end well

      5 years ago

      So my sister-in-law crashing at my house because of a big family reunion tomorrow. I have a love/hate relationship with her, meaning I love to hate her. I only put on a happy face to keep my wife happy. If it weren't for that, I'd tell the infuriating little bitch exactly what I think of her. But, "happy wife, happy life." So I remain as close to silent as I can.

      That was until I hear her squealing and the back door open. apparently her husband (who I hate even more than her) decided to surprise her and came down for the weekend too. And now they are both expecting to stay at my house.

      So long story short: Silence = happy marriage. Tonights events (and my reaction to them) = Anyone have a couch I can crash on for a few days?

      Vote for Zach

      5 years ago

      Thanks to Griffon for this great link. I never would have found this otherwise.

      Go check out Zach's audition for his own show. Well worth the vote. I'd love to see someone real on TV instead of people who think they belong on TV.

      RvB Showing

      in Forums > RvB Showing | Follow this topic

      Just to get an idea what everyone wants, IF we do a RvB showing somewhere, and IF we can only do one season. Which season would you guys prefer?

      Stressing out that you won't have anything RvB centered to do after Rooster Feast? Don't worry! We've got you covered. Join us at RvBTX. We're still in the planning phase but there will be hard data coming soon. So keep your focus set for Rooster Feast, but when that's over, get ready for the biggest RvB fan fest to ever to hit the Lone Star state!

      My little rant for the day

      5 years ago

      So I went to apply for a second job working the front desk at a hotel over night. When I got there, before I even got an application, The lady asked me if I spoke spanish. I replied honestly and said, "enough to order tacos." She then informed me that you had to be bilingual to work the front desk.

      At this point I had nothing to lose so I started pressing for information and complaining. I can understand that you need to be able to speak to people from mexico who may come up on vacation, but I just wasted time and gas and needed to take it out on someone.

      She informed me that "as a front desk agent, you need to be able to speak to the housekeeping and maintenance staff." Wrong thing to say to me.

      "So you're telling me that you can't hire me because I don't speak spanish and can't speak to people you already hired who don't speak ENGLISH!" I went off for about 5 minutes and was then "escorted" out.

      Stupid freaking people. I feel kinda like one of those Bond villains who want to destroy humanity today.

      Lego Harry Potter

      5 years ago

      My wife and oldest son LOVE the Lego games. the only one we haven't gotten is Lego Rock Band, and that's just because we don't have instruments.

      Anyway, I read through the Harry Potter books earlier this year and I am very excited about this game. I'm actually writing this as I'm waiting for the demo to download.

      Sure I'll get sick of it within a week, but it'll be worth it to see the family happy, and for a quick HP fix while I'm waiting for the movie in November.

      (Scopehound gains +2 to all Geek/Nerd rolls)
      (Scopehound gains +5 again for that previous reference)

      Sigh. I guess I can't fight what I am.

      So excited!

      5 years ago

      I've got so much to look forward to in the near future. First and foremost is RvBTX! Which continues to scream along at an amazing pace regardless of what we do. First planning session is coming up and we will finally nail down some things that will really get things under way.

      Second is me going back to school. 10 years after leaving high school and I'm finally going to college. I don't know why but this is a thrilling thing to me. I register for classes on the 17th of this month. i can't wait.

      And then there's all the small stuff that makes it worth getting up every day. My son is having his cub scout rocket launch tomorrow, then his birthday and camping out, my wife's birthday, the 4th of July, my youngest son's birthday, the list goes on.

      And lastly is all the amazing thing my wife is doing with her Mary Kay business. She's doing better than she ever has before and I think seeing her excited about it is what makes me happiest.

      All in all, I have a lot to be happy about lately. smiley13.gif

      Hey, do you think you could keep track of the number of members, number of news views, and number of profile views in the RvB:TX group for the next 5 days? I've been doing it every day around 5:00 PM for the past month just for kicks, but I'm not sure if I'll have internet access for the next week.

      Hey I noticed you were a group admin for RvBTX and I was wondering if there was anything I can do to help out beyond the realm of RT. I'm good at editing videos and doing photoshop illustrations (you can see some in my profile).

      I totally forgot about Reach when I made that thread. lol

      Also, I read the comment below and just in case you haven't yet, I already spammed ALL the members of that group about RvB:TX. Just check my log, it's crazy. I'm also an admin of that group, and made an announcement about our group soon after I joined.

      I'm assuming you sent messages to everyone in this group (probably where you found me) but let me know if you haven't gotten everyone there. If not, I'll take care of it.
