I was thinking of getting Skyrim, but with D3 coming out I don't think that is possible to fully enjoy in one month. I have been playing a lot of EPicMafia and Minecraft at the momment. Got a double spawner XP trap/farm I have been using to make all sorts of uber items.

My girlfriend bought it for me. She knew I was interested in it. I probably never would have bought it for myself, since I'm pretty sure I'll never actually finish the main quest... let alone all of the side ones.

I never made a dent in Oblivion. I'm almost to level 13 in Skyrim... But I only get a few hours every other week to play. It's going to take pretty much forever.

I guess I really didn't like Oblivion. Skyrim is AWESOME though! I just wish I could do it justice... without blowing off the rest of my life to do it.

how many times a day you try that? maybe attempting it a few times might help

back when I was going in for basic myself, I got this dirt road behind my house that's apart of the corn field back there, I ran that up and down a few times in each afternoon

taking a quick look I was interested in playing the Witch Doctor. Problem is My schedule is all screwed up and i work til 10pm on Sundays and Thursdays, and midnight monday to wednesday.

In other news...

Planning on going to the EAA Airventure airshow in Oshkosh this year (end of july). Arguably THE biggest airshow in the world. The flanneled one himself, George Lucas, is going to be there previewing his new movie "Red Tails". since I am going to be so close to him anything I should try to say to him or ... maybe do to him if i get the chance?

Yeah. Not an expensive job, fortunately. Got out of there for about $400... which is a REALLY big deal with this car.

I had a couple of other little things done while it was in, too. Some lights were out in the dash, as well as some running lights on the outside of the car. Stuff that I could do, but enough of a PITA that I just don't want to be bothered with it.

It's called mortgage, monthly bills, and trying to save for the future (y'know... maybe get married, new house, new furniture...)

Now that mom is retired, I'm covering all the household expenses myself. And I occasionally help out a bit with my girlfriend's place too, seeing as I actually tend to spend more time there these days, and eat over there more often than at my own place, it seems only fair.

So getting a new car, while it would be awesome, will have to wait for as long as this one is still running, and fixing it costs less per year than making payments on a new one would be.

I'd love a new car. It's just not realistic right now.

This one is still running pretty good... Despite being 12 years old next month.

Things are wearing out, unfortunately... But that's only to be expected, I guess...

Or, just as the movie starts to roll: "I have a bad feeling about this..."

Then ask him when we can expect the next Star Wars Holiday Special, and then wish him a happy Life Day. Then he will know that you are a true fan!

Apparently my car insurance was canceled without me being notified on 3/28/2012. I received no communication from my insurance company prior.


AND I don't have a job. ****.

Nonono! Better ask him about Indiana Jones Holiday Special! I always would to see Harrison Ford singing about Archeology with nazi dancing and evil communists at back vocal!

P.S. Broke MTLB's tracks right in middle of nowhere in marsh, spending more than 24 hours alone because of I forgot my radio. When my team find me, we were needed to repair those tracks ears deep in cold mud. I'm cursed.

Wild hedgehogs causes much of noise. I once saw hedgehog who find an old newspaper, i think even i can't make so much of noise with it. And... God help that carpenter who's workshop will be targeted by a hedgehog...

The weather sucks here today. It's like we finally got winter. Blah...

On the other hand, had the weather been better, traffic going into work would probably have been worse... which is hard to imagine, since it took me an hour to get there... with 45 minutes of the trip being all in the last block and a half of the journey. It was brutal.

If one thing I enjoy about moving to La Crosse wi, is that I went from a city (madison) of 300,000 and county (dane) of 500,000 people. To a city of 51,000 (La Crosse) and a county of 120,000 people. My commute is an easy 20 minute 10 mile drive. with most of it being two lanes all the way at 35 mph.

Mississippi river on one side, and bluffs on the other side kinda limit the population growth quite a bit
