I don't run registers at Best Buy. I mean, when I ring people out with giant complicated ass sales, yes.

Otherwise.... no. NONononononononono.

That's bad. Me and impatient customers do NOT get along!

Played a round of Halo 3 co-op, and Crackensan joined our party!

Cool. Saved us a lot of time, since he's actually played through the game once, so we didn't need to keep hunting and pecking to find the object. I still got lost in one of the levels, though. And now we know what each other sounds like... kinda eerie.
Live was being a bitch again... but we connected long enough to rescue Cortana, before the married one of our group (neither one of the XWA'ers, BTW...) was called away to keep the wife happy.


Played some Halo 2 after that (once able to connect and download the updates, that is... that took forever, though.)

Did a bunch of chores round the house all morning. Took a walk in the afternoon, since the weather was so nice. (Not a really long one though... only about an hour.) Took a nap after dinner.

Still no plans for tomorrow night though... other than sitting tight and avoiding the crowds and stupidity. Playing some more games and watching DVDs might be in the works as well.

Back to work on Wed.

Seems like this break was really short this time... but since work will be slow most of the month, I'm actually looking forward to going back. Gonna be lots of new toys for us to play with when we return, too!

That should be fun!!!

Haven't learned how to be precise with those damn controllers though.

lol i bet he hates the pit with the sword ownage lol


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Well... I have been playing co-op as the Arbiter. I keep finding myself with the sword when I re-spawn.

Did a little sword ownage myself.
But I do prefer a ranged weapon.

But yeah... the pit with all the flood is not my fave level so far.

The more the merrier! If I see you on next time, I'll tell my friend to add you.

Our campaign progress is on his machine, since we started the night I was over there for dinner.

I just started a single player game on Legendary this am... in order to get better at the controller. Playing through Halo 2 should help too.

Then I should be ready to try my hand at a multi-player frag-fest.

Still miss my keyboard/ mouse combo though.

*Sigh*

Got my PC and 360 to talk together this morning, though. That's sweet. I can now listen to my .mp3 collection downstairs without having to fire up a PC... and through the good surround system too.

damn i miss that connectivity i had w/my old computer (with all my cd collection ripped to it) yeah go through the campaign, i recommend starting on easy or normal just to get yourself adjusted to the controls. you can also adjust the sensitivity on it if you need to.

Yes... goodbye to you, 2007.
While you surely weren't the greatest year in the annals of my personal chronology... you also didn't suck nearly as bad as you certainly could have!

Sooooo... Welcome 2008!
May you kick 2007's ass up one side and down the other in terms of sheer awesomeness for us all!

Here's hoping the coming 12 months are the best ever for everyone reading this!

2006 was way better than 2007 for me. 2007 started strong, but then went to hell about two months in. 2008 had better be a lot better than 2007...

As you may remember, the 2nd half of 2006 was a personal low-point for me in almost every way... probably the worst 5 or 6 months I had in a row for over a decade.

It really wouldn't have been difficult for anything to be better than that.

So while it's not really possible for me to say that '07 was a spectacularly amazing year for me... it was a whole lot better in it's overall average uninterestingness than the horror show that '06 turned out to be.

At least I'm not ending the year in a gloomy depression this time around. A bit bored and lonely, perhaps... but at least not grimly questioning the futility of my own existence.

That has to count for something.

2006 SUCKED.

2007 Sucked.... not as bad, but it could use some serious improvement.

2008 looks to keep the trend goin'.

Whoot.

No complaints about 2007 here...I actually enjoyed it in a lot of ways. Boston's sports teams kicked butt, my best friend got married, finally posted my karaoke demo, and returned to ten-pin bowling, something that gave me much satisfaction in my youth. I hope I enjoy 2008 as much, if not more.

Awww... I'm sad to see this one go.

This was a kickass thread, if I do say so myself (and I do!)
Fell short of our 3K dream... but blew right through the 2,400 mark in quite an impressive way.
Oh yes... we rock.


Bye, '07.

Who is going to do the honors and lock this suckah up? Oh,.. Niner!

I think I'm able to do it, ed, though I really came out of my XWA.net shell on it.
