      So, Seattle is awesome. Flew in yesterday and met up with my buddy Jeremy at the airport. Picked up a cute stranger in baggage claim and gave him a lift. That was fun :)

      Spent today strolling around downtown. And now we're off to a couple of pre-pax parties. Super looking forward to the open bars ;)

      I have one. If you have one too we should be psn friends. My gamertag is the same on psn and xbl and rt.com. Can't make it much easier than that.

      So far my games on ps3 are:
      Resistance 2
      God of war 1&2
      Little big planet
      Heavy rain
      And uncharted 1&2 are en route to arrive in the next week.

      Any other top recommendations for console exclusive titles would be appreciated.

      1) I has. Same user name.

      2) had been delayed (if you hadn't guessed yet) due to my hand being in a splint for the past 2 months. I was only able to get one batch in the mail before the doc hobbled me. But, so long as your addy doesn't change in the meantime you will eventually get a random package in the mail.

      This is the official "Gimme Cookies NAOW" journal.

      If you want in on the action I need to know what your favorite kind is and where to ship them.

      They will be packaged in whatever boxes I can find that will keep them from being tumbled into crumbs before they get to you and they will be in a sealed ziploc with some bread to help keep them moist. (The bread thing really does work and no, you're not intended to eat the bread. If they're a little dry by the time they get to you seal them up with a fresh slice for a day and they'll be good as new)

      I have shipped international before and would be willing to do so again but only for up to 2 people (intl rates are a bit pricier than domestic and take longer too)

      Comment here with what kind you want and then PM your shipping info.

      The comments will be closed on Friday. I'll probably start baking and shipping mid week so the sooner you let me know the sooner you'll get to enjoy the fruits of someone else's labors.

      ps: If I don't know you, this journal does not apply to you.

      Thanks for giving me something to do in my free time <3

    • So here's the deal

      8 years ago

      troy0891

      Had an accident at work 4 months ago and have been in a holding pattern since then with the mindset of "I could be returning to work any day now." However, my recovery has NOT followed what the doctor expected at all. I've changed treating physicians since that one was obviously not getting me well (and was basically telling me that it's all in my head and that a girl really shouldn't be doing my job anyways so why don't I just go find myself another one).

      I've finally spoken to an orthopedic surgeon, and we're going to try one non-surgical option first and if it doesn't work, then I'm looking at shoulder surgery. If it does, then I'll hopefully be going back to work in about a month. (just have to wait on work comp to approve it before we can actually try it)

      Meanwhile, now that I know I've got at least that much time, I'm thinking about trying to become active here again. But,it's been so long I'm sure the population of my favorite bars has changed enough that the regulars wouldn't know me. And I don't really feel like putting up with the standard newb hazing that happens in bars. So, where and when do you guys hang out here? (Assuming you have the time to do so.) I'd really like the opportunity to catch up and there's only so long I can sit and try to read through alerts. Especially since several of you have added hundreds of journals (I'm looking at you Clem, and Sloe, and Swoop, and the list goes on..)

      That's about all the recap I've got here. Oh, and if you guys know of any good games $20 and under, I'm completely bored with most of my current library and looking for some good stuff to spice it up while I wait on newer titles (Like LA Noir) to come down in price, or DLC heavy games (Like Fallout New Vegas) to come out with their game of the year editions that'll include all those goodies that I know I'd end up buying separately otherwise. So, lemme know what's up. Until then, I love you all and will be taking cookie requests in the near future.

      Ah yes, I have now read the journal. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but international rates are silly to where I am, so just send me love - as per usual.

      Thank you for thinking of me with that smiley12.gif

      Yeah Samantha had the game but had never played it. We were talking about the game before we started and some guy joined and I was like... "people still play this?"

      We also have Qix++ and it's the deadest game ever but we both love it.

      It's sad that there aren't that many people playing those niche xbla games.

      I would like omelete cookies because my wife won't make me omeletes.
      Or maybe anything with nuts... oh, oh... or instead - star cookies with the chocolate star on top of a sugar cookie.

      Shelia said she would like peanut butter cookies.
      She doesn't like nuts.

      I winced simply reading that - and it's left me grateful that your injuries weren't any worse too, though I don't want saying that to take away from how serious I realise it was and still is.

      Here's hoping that your work comp comes through fast to help with this pending treatment.

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.

      Friendly Neighborhood RvB:TX Admin here! Just a few updates on the group today:
      1) We officially have 200 members! Sweet! You Guys Rock!

      2) We'd really appreciate it if everyone watches the group and checks the forum every few weeks or so. We post polls and messages on the group and we need YOUR input to make sure that this RvB:TX will be the best yet smiley0.gif . If you already watch the group, thanks a ton! If not, go here and click the watch button. There are also polls concerning likelihood of attendance and optimum ticket price in the group forum.

      3) The event is being tentatively scheduled for next March. Hope to see you there!

      4) We could really use the help of a Web Designer. if you or someone you know could help us get even a bare bones site running, it would be greatly appreciated. However, please note that this will be an act of volunteerism on your part. We'd love to pay you, but we just don't have the money. But isn't being able to say that you designed a site in order to celebrate the greatest Machinima series ever reward enough? If you are still interested, please contact myself, or one of the other group admins.

      5) Keep active in the group. The planning staff is constantly looking for cool ideas for events, and they are the best spot to get yours out there.

      That's all folks! Keep your eyes glued to the screen for further updates.

      Hey, I found you using the site member search feature and wanted to let you know about a RvB:TX, a group that is planning a RvB festival in Austin in the near future. Our group already has over 150 members, including Gus, and we're very active. If you are interested in volunteering, giving suggestions, attending, or just RvB in general, please check out our group page here. Also, feel free to check out our dedicated website (When it's up. We're down right now) and Twitter account.

      And make sure to send this to any friends who might be interested!

      Fawkes will refuse to help you if don't have Broken Steel DLC installed. If it is he will go in instead of you or the lady.

      I'm putting the DLC on hold while I play Red Dead Redemption though, because I pretty much played it for 6 days straight last week and I'm more than burned out on it... especially when I had to replay a bunch of it because I missed a couple things to get an achievement and had to go back like 25% of the game to get it.

      I'm not getting a Canadian citizenship. I'm just getting a working visa. I just used 'citizen' in that sentence as a classy descriptive word.
      New Zealand is, and always will be, home. Hence, keeping my stuff in storage.

      Assuming you mean college apps, they went fairly well. I applied to four schools: Embry-Riddle Aeronautucal University, University of South Florida, Marion Military Instituite, and Colorado State University. I was accepted into all of them except USF because they sent me a letter asking for another essay and more test scores and I never sent them cause Iit was my fourth choice and I already had acceptance to the other three.

      I decided on the Air Force. I submitted my AFROTC Application in December. Conducted my interview with a Captain at CSU in January. I was offered a four-year full-ride scholarship for any major of my choice at CSU. I turned it down in order to be considered for a scholarship to ERAU which is my first choice. My application is being reviewed by the board at Maxwell, AFB in Alabama this week, and I will know the results of my application on or around March 15.

      And haha I know. My checking account is literally the lowest it's ever been right now. ><

      How has you been?

    • SloeBombFizz

      I never see who the FU is. Not sure if it's even on the sign-in page or I've just gotten tunnel vision.
      And I can't spend time in the forums from work anymore, so I never chat with people.
      I just try to keep up with journals.

      Things actually did work out ok. I was pretty bummed about it at first, but we're all moved in to the new house now, and I'm looking at it like it's a new adventure

    • FameWolf FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Yes, sometimes I get confused by the money paid for some jobs; I still don't understand how I got less for working at a law firm in central London than I did for a warehouse job in Hertfordshire... And the cost of travel into London takes a big bite out of everything too.

      That job does sound pretty cool, though - I still don't know what I'll end up doing, but I'm not afraid of working nights. Getting something that allows me to study while working, though, is something I'd not even considered might exist... So you most definitely managed to encourage me with the story!

      I thank you for all encouragement and advice - I know the year, trying as it might be, will run a lot more smoothly with any and all support offered.

      So, we're both room sorting? Is this just a sign of places feeling like home, though? A bit of mess is good, as if it was perfectly neat it wouldn't feel right, it'd be like living in a museum...

      ... ok, I can't quite rationalise not carrying on, so I guess I'd better get back to it...

      Thanks for the quick update; it sounds like it's been extremely busy with you over the last... I'm not even sure how long. Year, or so?

      I know about having to quit jobs more than once - I think it took me three goes to get away from TR before both sides got the idea. Of course, I'm now jobless and no one is hiring...

      I'm glad to hear you're on the mend - pneumonia is a pretty huge deal. I only know one other person who caught it, and they didn't survive it. And writing that makes me suddenly very guilty that I've not been in touch more, and incredibly grateful that you're ok.

      I am going to read the journals I missed, of course - if you took the time to write them, they are worth reading; plus, I want to hear all the details about RvB:TO (which I'm going to have to try so hard to get to one year)!

      It's great to be back in touch with you. I'm looking forward to speaking to you soon! smiley0.gif
