      Well, I got a chance to play the game yesterday. It was at some sort of mall event. The game kicked ass, even though it was a demo station that was open all day, so it was in the middle of a game and I had no idea what was going on.

      If anyone has the mall tour coming near them I suggest checking it out, the booth isn't really all that impressive, but I got a free sticker, keychain and ... t-shirt. All for playing the demo for 10 minutes. Not a bad deal. They had 2 shirts, I got one and my wife got the other, I'll post pictures later. I then went to EB Games and pre-ordered the game, getting me a demo disc. It was a pretty good night.

      To find out if the tour is coming near you go to The official site and click 'mall tour'.

    • Huge lifestyle change coming.

      13 years ago


      Well, it's official so I can finally announce it. I'm going to be a father. My wife just went to the doctor for confirmation on Thursday.

      Now I have 7 months to completely reorganize my entire lifestyle, including living space and internet time. EVERYTHING!

      Not that I'm complaining, in fact I couldn't be happier. Before anyone asks, I have no intention of learning the sex of my child until the day they are born, though we (my wife and I) do have some name ideas in mind.

      I'll probably be updating my journal with baby stuff for quite awhile to come, so bear with me. It will be our first child, after all.

    • Fun, Fun, Fun.

      Ahhh, the stores finally open, and all hell's breaking lose.

      Seems to me that we of the overnights are not only doing our jobs, but the evening shifts jobs as well. On top of that the produce section keeps stealing all of out damn carts, so we have nothing to haul the product out onto the floor on. Who knew there would be so much behind the scenes drama.

      On top of all that, starting probably Sat. night, I'm switching hours. So instead of 11pm - 7am I will be working 10pm - 6am, which means one less hour everynight to check the forums.

      Oh well, at least I have a job, a wife and my health. It could be worse.

    • Need a Laugh?

      13 years ago


      If anyone is in need of a good laugh I highly recommend picking up Dane Cook's latest album

      It's a two CD, one DVD set and it's funny as hell! While you're at your local CD dealer, look for Dane's first release


      It's one CD and one DVD and it's just as funny. I'd also be willing to make more suggestion, if anyone's interested.

    • woohoo!

      No mopre evening shifts. I finally start overnights tomorrow night. At last I'll be able to see my wife. Working during the evenings while my wife's working mornings sucks.

      Of course this means I'll probably not be on here every night, but I'll be here alot on my nights off.

    • Lame ass update

      14 years ago


      Okay here's how my weekends been.

      Toe's feeling great. Shoulda had it taken care of years ago.

      At work I've only got two more days of evening work. Turns out I'm going to overnights sooner than expected, Friday night to be precise. It's gonna be soooo great. That means I'm gonna have my days off to sit on the internet all night long. I'm one of the most dull people I know. It's kinda sad really.

      Anyways, I know few care, but for those who do there you have it.

    • WOOHOO

      14 years ago


      Tomorrow (Wens. the 10th.) iss my last day working days. I get to switch to evening next week, and the a couple weeks after that I finally end up on overnights.

      On top of that I'm going in to get the nasty ingrown toenail taken care of tomorrow evening. It's a pretty good night all around.

    • For those who care.

      14 years ago


      I may be a bit sparce in the forums for awhile. Just started a new job and they've got me working mornings. Juast ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you, I am NOT a morning person. So I'm left tired and crabby.

      Just two more weeks and I switch to overnights. I cannot wait.
