XWA One Year Thread, Part VI, Return of the Bottle Deposit
 
HAPPY Effing new year!

I hope people got a copy of Minecraft, or else I might get ya a copy. they got the PC Gamer: Game of the Year for 2010

but, shoot, I hope I get to have a whole lot more fun this year!

Cmdr. Cracken 01-01-2011 02:06 AM

And HAPPY NEW YEAR! And new thread!

Quick recap, as always.....

Ed, Crackensan, and Kinnison: Somehow, via either Black Magic, cohersion, threats, or some wierd alignment of the planets, have managed to land steady, what I assume loving relationships with the opposite sex.

Crackensan: Also landed his ass back in school. To become.. a... legal secretary. Whoot? :/

Rogue15: The one who we all have facepalmed at for over the course of these past few years has finally got his **** togeather, which a girlfriend (OMGWTF) and a job! Go you! (Finally, maybe we'll stop facepalming at your stupid antics. LOL)

The rest of us? Well, Nitro's marriage died, unfortunate and we mourn the loss, though Nitro not so much, Scar (a.k.a Kuuki) is also attending college, and Keyan is working on... stuff? Hopefully cool stuff.

May the Force be with us all, and may 2011 rock harder than ever before. 'Cause we get to turn it up to 11, bitches!

Happy New Year!

I liked Cracken's name better, but funny Kuuki should mention bottle deposits...my state is considering extending the bottle deposit law to include juice and water bottles.

Being so involved in my bowling as I am, I'm hoping for any or all of the following to happen in 2011:
  1. Win (or at least cash in) a People's Tournament
  2. Shoot an honor score (either 11 in a row or 300, preferably the latter; an 800 series may be asking too much of me at this time)
  3. End my winter league with at least a 190 average (currently 185)

There may be some developments in the X-Wing community that might start a revival in the coming year, too (but not an entirely new game, as TG closed their development office a couple of years ago)...one can only hope. :D

Cmdr. Cracken 01-01-2011 02:23 AM

See, my name was better.

Ass. ;)

Nitro 01-01-2011 02:24 AM

I';m driunk thet new year starting with now!

Kuuki 01-01-2011 02:50 AM

Ok, I actually wanted someone other than myself or crackles to make the topic, because it will be easy to get the forum achievement for the 'hot topic'
both me and cracken have ~4+ forum achievements, we don't need more.


but here's what I want to do. As a new-years resolution I want to push the "norm's" for these XWA 1yr thread posters to at least get at the min of 4 achievements for this year.

so, I make this one recommendation:
For a new achievement: "Once in a Blue Milk Moon" should be given to a Forum Veteran Member whom has said Veteran status, but whom does post regularly (yet irregularly(SP?) (IE not a 'DEAD' member))
to be given his achievement

IE: I nominate LukA_YJK for this, he's a forum vet and a 10yr vet and still had less then 1k posts. but still is a popular users to us 'oldies'.

I think this is an achievement on itself.

KK: thoughts on a wager for tomorrow? Lovie seems to think its OK to play everyone and risk injuries before the playoffs to try and beat GB again....

Keyan Farlander 01-01-2011 12:59 PM

Hopefully I will be able to stop the e-mails every time someone replies in this new thread.

How about I send you a pint of Babcock Hall Ice Cream (your choice of flavor) made with Wisonsin Milk from Grass fed cows if the Packers win. it would cost me about $15.


So you will need to find something of comparable that is from Illinois to send me, tho I have a hard time thinking of anything good coming from Illinois ;)

edlib 01-01-2011 06:25 PM

Last night: AMAZING!!! :D

This morning: Ehhh... not so much.

I'm pretty sure my car's transmission is shot. Burning. Grinding. Slipping. Not happy. :(

As me and the lady were leaving the hotel on the way for some breakfast, it **** the bed in a big, ugly, noisy way in the restaurant parking lot.

Spent the rest of my very tired New Year's day dealing with AAA and tow companies, and cabs to get back to where we left her car. Memorable... but not exactly the day together I had envisioned.

If it's as simple as fixing a crack, flushing, and refilling with fluid... I'll keep this car.

Anything more... especially if it runs into multiple thousands of dollars, I'm going to sadly cut this one loose and start again.

My confidence is not high... :dozey:

Well... Happy New Year. :rolleyes:

Cmdr. Cracken 01-02-2011 02:15 PM

The entire New Years weekend was ok. NYE was spent trying to find my girl some Nyquil at 1am. That was hilarious amounts of fun.

New Years Day went better... much better. ;)

Stream goes live starting at 7pm today, est. Pretty damned excited.

Keyan Farlander 01-02-2011 02:15 PM

Still very sick. I don't know what's going on here.

K_Kinnison 01-02-2011 03:21 PM

Where is zargon? lilly livared F.I.B.ber

Cmdr. Cracken 01-02-2011 06:21 PM

Watch Crackensan Practice Starcraft II Live!!!!!

Whooot:thmbup1:

edlib 01-02-2011 07:25 PM

My mechanic doesn't think it will be an expensive fix... but I won't know more until tomorrow.

K_Kinnison 01-02-2011 09:49 PM

Packers going to the playoffs! For once the Packers defense was better then DA BEARS deense. Too bad the Packers likely won't go on beyond the 2nd round of the playoffs

Cmdr. Cracken 01-02-2011 11:12 PM

Gratz to your Pack. Who do you guys have to play? The Eagles?

I think the Saints got stuck running over the Rams/Seahawks.

Rogue15 01-03-2011 09:24 AM

this year is going to be so much better. :)

congrats on two things :D

for one, we make way better pizza :D

do you like wine? we actually have a nice local winery, that grape shares with a few other small winerys

i could mail you a pizza, but it would be hefty to ship I beleive....

yeah they play the eagles, if they get by the eagles they play the falcons....

heres to hoping the pack wins one playoff game, and the saints manage to lose

cuz then the bears play the seahawks and the pack play the falcons :D

Cmdr. Cracken 01-03-2011 10:43 AM

Well the Seahawks are in......

If they beat the Saints then I give up on the NFC entirely......

Correction, you make good "Chicago style" pizza. Which is like saying Florida makes good orange juice. If you can find someone who ships frozen pizza to Chedderland yes.

Otherwise a sweet, low tannis wine would be good.

My NFL playoff predictions:


I doubt the packers can beat the Falcons. If anyone can beat Vick and the Eagles in the playoffs it is the Packers.

IN the Bears/Saints game, saints have trouble against a quality defense, and likely will be outscored.

Bears and Falcons make it to the Championship game, but the Bears luck runs out and Falcons make it to the big dance.

For the AFC:

Colts have Addai back, and regain their swagger, and get through Pittsburg to the championship game.

BaLtimore makes it to New England, but no further.

Colts make a show of it, but fail to stop New England making *yawn* another SB appearance.

In the big dance, Falcons shoot it out with the pats, and win the game. 38-31

I certainly dont disagree with your playoff predictions, except that the bears could once again kill vick if they had to :)

I dont know what a low tannis wine is, heheheeh edit: google ftmfw

chicago style?

you mean REAL american pizza :D the best kind by far :D :D

I'll see what the cost is to ship ya a dryice'd deep dish.

Keyan Farlander 01-03-2011 02:20 PM

Stayed home from work today. Still sick :(

The Patriots' defense has improved from the early season, though, and could give Matt Ryan problems now. There's a reason the Patriots had the league-best turnover differential this season, and not all of that because our offense just never gave up the football. :)

K_Kinnison 01-04-2011 12:26 AM

The Pats will repeat their mistakes of SB 42 (2007) of being overconfident in the super bowl and lose to an up and coming team.

Pats have a history of padding their stats against mediocre teams so IMHO a "league best turnover margin" is moot If they could almost lose to the packers with a backup QB, they could lose to the Falcons.

edlib 01-04-2011 07:37 AM

Go on... you just keep thinking that... It will just make the Pats ultimate and inevitable Superbowl victory this season all that much harder and painful for you! :p

Going to pick up my car this morning. Broken driveshaft. Don't know exactly how it happened (though living in the "Ginormous-Pothole Capital of the World", I have a few guesses...) But it shouldn't be too huge a bill... though any car-related expense is far more than I want to deal with right now, coming off all the other holiday expenses I've been racking up...

Work is slow and chill this week. Routine maintenance. Just chopping away at the to-do list a little each day.

Keyan Farlander 01-04-2011 09:18 AM

Still sick, but at work today.

edlib 01-04-2011 09:41 AM

Sounds like a blast. :dozey:

But: Been there; Done that.

Sorry for you dude! Get well soon! Feel better!

Wildstar 01-04-2011 11:53 AM

Uhm, K_K, the Patriots actually had the 5th toughest schedule in the league. And we thrashed supposedly good defenses like the Bears' and the Steelers'. :P

a large portion of your fan base is still ******* pricks :D

you also lost to the browns.....

Cmdr. Cracken 01-04-2011 04:00 PM

Go Indy!

Only because I hate the Patriots and my aunt would kill me if I said otherwise.

Your point being...? :dozey:

:joy:

Trust me... I hate Boston/ New England sports fans as much, if not more than anyone... simply because I have to deal with them at their most drunken and rowdiest many late nights on my way home from a long and brutal day at work... when a crowded train full of intoxicated yahoos is about the very last thing I'd really ever want to see at that point.

Zargon 01-04-2011 05:54 PM

heheheheheh

I'm sure I posted my experiences from the 2006 postseason being in boston for championship week already, left me tainted....

6th if you compare the 2009/2010 seasons records, which IMHO means nothing at the end of the season when you have

Wildstar 01-04-2011 06:40 PM

I can't really explain the loss to the Browns, Zargon, but that was also Logan Mankins' first game back on the offensive line, and the Patriots' offense found another gear in the weeks following.

Keyan Farlander 01-05-2011 09:33 AM

New jeans today. I hate new jeans. Gotta break these suckers in.

yeah and I can't explain our piss poor play against the pat's..... :thmbup1:

the redskins seahawks losses are pretty self explanatory if you watched them. Lovie can't manage a game to save his life
