2010 was the worst year ever, with the possible exception of 2009. I hate everything.

Have you considered increasing your drug intake?

2010 started fairly bleak for me... but improved before the end.

Most of it was either miserable or merely "meh". The summer was OK. The trip to D.C. was nice... but it's only been the last couple of months that things really started looking up.

2010 was ok


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.

2010 was meh. It had enough high points to out weigh the bad points.

2011 looks signifigantly better...... except for being in school for 9 months out of the year. That'll be god damned hilarious. >.<

Merry Christmas everyone, be safe, and enjoy your family!
And if you can't enjoy your family, enjoy someone elses. muahaha....

Got the nerd shirts I wanted, socks, and a tv tuner card.

My sister got me a 1.75 liter bottle of jack daniels. <3

I also got M&M's that are the colours of the Miami Dolphins with their logo on them! And an M&M dispensier with their logo on it too. And my sister got me this giant ass bag of M&M's. O.o They swear they didn't coordinate that ****. I call shenanigans.

A couple of CDs, The Force Unleashed 2, a bottle of nice cologne, some clothes, and some Bose noise-cancelling headphones. That last was quite a surprise from my mother. I never thought about it, but I could probably use those things at work with all the construction going on.

My sister got a Kinect. She doesn't have an XBox. So guess whose XBox she'll be using it on? I swore that vile piece of technological heresy would never touch my XBox. I guess you can't win 'em all. Or any of them. Ever.

Nothing too dramatic for Xmas, though a cousin gave me a gift that made the Patriots fan in me happy: a copy of the Super Bowl XXXIX official game program.

2010 has been good. except for a slight bump mid-year with me dumping my girl and her crawling back. It is going to end real well, and I think 2011 is going to be my best year ever. Right now I am with my Lady at her house enjoying Our first Christmas at the house. our beef wellington is in the over and the Squash soup, is ready. She is preparing the veggies as i write.

So far my loot (which is just for reference, not bragging) is a $60 Gift certificate for Curling supplies, a Green Bay packers jersey, a bottle of 12 year Glenlivet.... this does not include what i get from my Brother or his family.

I surprised my Lady by arriving late Christmas eve, she called me while i was about an hour away on my cell phone and didn't have a clue I was almost there. She said "see you tomorrow morning" and I said "See you soon". She isn't very good at figuring out puzzles.

I spent the day with my GF and her kids. Hung out at her place while her dad was out. Got some Chinese food. Watched Fellowship of the Ring.

I gave her the gifts I bought for her yesterday. (A perfume package of her favorite fragrance from Calvin Klein; chocolates; 8GB iPod Nano, loaded with all her favorite albums...)

Gave the kids some of theirs. (I have other presents here at the house for them that my mom wanted to give them in person. They were supposed to come over here today... but the monster storm we are supposed to get this afternoon pretty much canceled all plans.)

She said most of my presents are still on the way... but she could only give them to me when we are "in private." Something she is making for me... and something she is going to do for me...

No real idea of what I'm in for... but I may have gotten a bit of a preview in the form of some pictures she sent to my phone.

Whoa!

Just tell them the truth. You were in bed with your new Girlfriend practicing on how to make some grand kids

As for me I spent about 4 hours this morning snowblowing snow from my Ladies driveway and sidewalk. of course i had to find the sidewalk, and edges of the driveway. Then I "raked" her roof that had almost a foot of snow in some spots. Quite tired now and enjoying some scotch while watching the Bears/Jets game on TV. J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!

Your misguided loyalty to a failing team disturbs me.

When I did come home to get ready for work, my Dad just asked for quick assurance that I was being safe. Affirmative given, resume normal operations.

Though Mom is now HIGHLY interested in meeting her, which I'm looking forward to.

Yay embarassing stories of my youth. Oh the JOY.

So far, so good w/ this storm, but I prepared the virtual league (which I am now secretary of) for the possibility of my losing power for an extended period (and I still have to get to my sister's for her part of Xmas w/ her kids, and I may have to help shovel her out, too), and may also have to extend the score submission deadline a day if the eastern seaboard experiences widespread power outages.

Decided to spend the day of being snowed in alternately napping, and shooting for unlocking the 100,000-point drift lap achievement in Forza.

Amazingly frustrating... but I'm getting closer with each attempt...

Hmm... Well, I doubt you were ever meant to be it's intended audience.

Motion controllers are intended for non-hardcore, serious, longtime gamers.

I doubt I'll ever bother. I'd rather just get a Wii for the cost of that thing. I'd much rather have a wheel controller, and/or one of the new Rock Band Strats. I'd use those much more frequently, I'm sure.

Yeah, I don't get that. Controlling things with your body and voice (or the Wiimote) seems way more advanced and intimidating than pressing a few buttons. The whole thing seems like it came out of the marketing department.

Oops... I meant to type "aren't intended..."

But you seem to have gotten the idea. It's all to bring those who are scared about games into the pack, and sell more units.

Woke up to a brutal scene outside, and no power or heat indoors. So far, not a great morning/ afternoon. Power is back now... but the house is still freezing. And it took about 3 hours to clean up outside.

Here we go again...

I ended up extending the virtual league score deadline by a day...I still have 3 sets of scores outstanding, and am hoping these 3 are just waiting for power and Internet to be restored to submit; with this being the last week of our fall league, it may make a difference. There was one casualty in the virtual league to the storm...a guy whose "real" league wasn't meeting on Xmas Eve wanted to bowl the make-up for the week yesterday, but got snowed in.

Going crazy with these damn driving games!!!

I always seem to be off my goal by a couple of tenths of a second... then spend the next couple of hours chasing down those last couple of tenths... always getting worse and more frustrated in the process, but never giving up until I'm about to smash the TV with the controller.

Maybe I should find another hobby...
