    • Halloween

      Yesterday was Halloween. And, as you know, it's tradtition for women to dress in slutty (sexy) outfits and drink a lot, children to acquire candy, and horror movie fests on TV. The amount of picture spam on social network sites is incredible, the movies are bad, and the children, well they're children. One kid that came to my door, however, had a hand made Angry Birds costume. This kid ('s mother) is epic, Granted the kids costume was so large I fear he may not have been able to fit through doorways.

    • Pumpkins

      In a city not too far from me, every year there is held what is known as Pumpkin fest. It's a place where thousands of people can gather for jolly good times (not really) and to look at tens of thousands of pumpkins. I never really got the draw of this.

      Yes, I've been, and it is neat to see, I guess. What I don't get is why every year people come from all over the world to see a shit load of pumpkins lit up on a narrow street in a city. I guess I just don't care that much because I'm used to it every year, but even so. Oh well, I guess I can't bitch too much about pumpkins, plus, I'm sure it's just an excuse for people to get drunk, if anything.

    • Returning Shit

      Why, in gods name, do some businesses make returning things to them SO GODDAMN DIFFICULT. I recently bought a new monitor, which, happened to be purchased from Newegg, and was infact defective. I went over to the returns section of the website, got a return ticket, filled it out and they said they'd email me when its been processed. Easy enough

      I get the email read over it, and goto the link it gives for instructions. Now here's the thing: You print out a label and tape it to the shipping box. Easy enough, how-ever, Newegg likes to ship products without a box. Yep, they slap their sticker right on the product and throw it to UPS like they don't give a shit. Then they basically go out and say "Hey jack-ass, good luck finding a box big enough to fit YOUR FUCKING MONITOR in."

      I wouldn't be so angry if they, much like a lot of places do, would send you a box to place the product in. It's pretty simple. Amazon does it. Gamestop does it. Why can't Newegg?

      Oh, then there's a RESTOCKING fee. So you mean to tell me, that I have to pay YOU a RESTOCKING fee on a DEFECTIVE product that YOU sent to ME? WHAT!? This is absurd! You're going to restock a fucking defective product!? And I have to pay YOU for it!?

      This would be well and simple if you asshats had decent customer service. Fuck you Newegg, this is on of the last times I'll do business with you, you cock sucking twat bags.

      Been watching this show lately because I was bored, and does anyone else find it surprisingly good? I find myself laughing quite often at it. Not sure if it's because of Will Arnett giving me my Arrested Development fix, but I quite enjoy the show, better than a lot of the new dribble coming out lately (I'm looking at you, Last Man Standing.) Thoughts?

    • Gears of Waist High Walls 3

      Been playing Gears 3 lately, much like everyone else. Singleplayer is a little slow to get started but once it gets going it's pretty fun. Multiplayer feels a bit more of the same from the other two games (granted, I've only been playing one mode) and it seems on maps with turrets, the team that gets the turret wins automatically. Oh well, still a pretty good game.

    • New Monitor

      God a new monitor today, to replace my secondary monitor that was surely on its way out. Dead Pixels, dim picture, not to mention occasional flickering. ended up picking up a 22" Hannspree HF225 for only about $90 on Newegg (it was on sale) and goddamn is this set gorgeous, escpecially for the price. Well worth the money. Didn't know what I was missing until I finally made the change XD

      Well, just finished playing through Dead Island with a friend, and I must say...while it was fun to play, don't play it for the story. Story line is very thin, and the ending is just plain stupid.

      Today I was at my lovely (not really) job at a supermarket, stocking away, when two girls in Gorilla suits came up behind me, tapped me on the shoulder, and asked, "Excuse me sir, where are the frozen waffles?" Me, being a smart ass, put on my best poker face, looked the gorilla in the eyes and screamed "DEAR GOD, IT'S STARTED." I then proceeded to walk away as fast as I could.
