Yeah, i'll probably give her the $600 back....but when i have it plus enough to cover my own personal expenses. Just to clear it from my conscience before shipping to basic.


I just beat Army of TWO. It was fun! Then I played Bad Company with 2 of my friends for a couple hours. That was crazy, haven't played the gold rush mode in a while.

ALOT of cool sequels coming out this year!

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 2
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Army of TWO 2


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.

Same here. This title makes me want to kill.

who really cares what the title's called? as long as it's a kickass game, that's all that matters.

Well, that's an even worse name, because now there's nothing to tell me that it's a Call of Duty game. Or is it? Is it now a child series? A subseries? A parallel series? Whatever. If it blows as much as the first one, I don't care anyway.

It is sorta, its a subseries I guess

it IS the sequel to the first one, the storyline continues that of the first.

they probably figured cod6 mf2 was rediculous

And speaking of games that suck, the 360 is supposedly swamped my FPSs, but I have yet to find one that I like. Everything is too tactical or too filled with crap or belongs on the PC. Isn't there anything like Timesplitters 2? That game was an awesome console shooter.

I really need a good shooter with local co-op.

hell yeah it looks sweet!!!

Got my coworker to get Army of TWO, the co-op is pretty sweet. We're going through on contractor difficulty. I beat the campaign mode in single player, but somehow it didn't unlock professional mode for me. hmm...

Good luck, soldier!

Working tonight. Steve Earle. Hopefully straight ahead.

I tried to buy H.A.W.X. yesterday, but couldn't find a copy. The local game store was out.

Huh... that's OK, I guess... I REALLY should finish everything I already have before I buy any new titles, anyhow.

Maybe I'll work on that this weekend...

I need to beat Assassin's Creed, Gears of War, Lost Odyssey (not even off disc 1/4 yet!!!!), Oblivion, Cabela's Big Game Hunter, and EndWar... actually..that's not too big of a list, LO is gonna take a while though..that game is huge.

(not that I have anything against PD, but if it werent for the success of Goldeneye, PD wouldnt exist)

ONe problem I always have with FPS in story mode is that I tend to run out of ammunition a lot. That is often why I dislike most FPS.... that and my computer cannot most of the latest eye-popping graphics

SO

I got 'let off' today, for the third time at the place of 'employment'
trust me, it would prolly wont be the last time.

but anyway, I got disappointed at the job after talking with the CEO (whom i had known years before my enlistment) that I didnt want to a particular job, but when the vice president gives me a job, only for a week and half later, i get a job, AND THEN a week and a half AFTER THAT, i get the job i didnt want. omg.

so.

the said vice pres, talks to me today,

keep a ong story short, he give me an ultimatum, but i stick to my side, i wanted a new job, but wanted to use my sick days to do it

so he let me go.

oh well, at least i was able to work the rest of the day and then walk out peacefully with no mention to the other supervisor's

I'm pretty stoked for Modern Warfare 2. Amongst other sequels this year.

Specifically BioShock 2. Recently this week, I've just been playing BioShock again. Such a great game.

Went over to a friend's last night for some gaming. We bought some classic NES games on the Wii Virtual Console - Metroid, Punch-Out!!, Super C, and Life Force. And I have to say...it sucked big time. There was so much lag in the controls we could hardly get anywhere. And while that certainly provided for an amusing evening, it was certainly not a good impression the Wii Virtual Console has left on me.

I skipped bioshock on PC due to the whole rootkit-esk DRM that freaked out lots of PCs and AV and firewalls

Well I went out on a a date friday. I wanted it to be Saturday, but she is going to see the blue angels with her Uncle. I screwed up and was late, not to mention my bank accidentally overdrew my account when I went to get my money order to pay the rent. SO I am flat broke and had to call my parents for some money to tie me over. It looks like i spent too much on my Trip to Seattle. We ended up going to dinner and then watching the sunset over the lake. But I really don't see a real attraction. She is rather stand-offish. and with her being overweight I am not physically attracted to her. This is my first time calling it off.

Good news is the Chinese Girl called me that evening, talked for about 45 minutes. She sounds really cute. wants me to call her sunday, might plan to go on a date with her when i get my next paycheck

Kind of a lousy day.
The weather was really nice... but I was just too exhausted all day to get out of my own way and enjoy it.

Never left the house. Slept a lot.

Blah.

Got up early to mow the lawn, but it rained last night and the grass was too wet, so I'll have to do it later, after Mass. That pretty much kills the whole day...

went out Disc Golfing yesturday, and grouped up with another single. Found out we live about a mile away from each other and he is as old as my brother. WE exchanged phone numbers and planned to get together again.

Going out again today to token creek, which is one of the best Disc Golf courses in the area

i'm borrowing The Sims 2 from my one friend, installing it...I never really tried it besides the xbox version of the classic sims, so this might be fun.

Got another call from Ying.. the Chinese lady. she was "looking for switch under sink" and needed help. I asked her if her garbage disposal was working, and she said "Yes. Disposal no work, need to find switch under sink" so she was having trouble finding the reset switch. I told her to look for a red switch on the bottom the disposal unit. she found it and I could hear the disposal running "OH! thank you... thank you wery much". After some more questions it sounded like she had something in there jamming the disposal and she should clean it out by grabbing what is in there.

She wanted to call me tomorrow so she could clean it out. So i am going to call her tommorrow. Damn... I want to meet her now but I can't I have to wait til my next paycheck in about 2 weeks

SHe speaks very good english... just has a bad accent. I also need to speak slowly so she can understand me. I always enjoyed learning about asian cultures and customs. Instead of "Jack of all trades" they say "A man who cuts with a thousand dull knives"

I am going to scrounge up some funds and go try to meet her this weekend.

Helping my actress friend move across Boston tonight.

Kinda sucks that she's leaving the same town I live in... but since I never actually saw her around town anyway (all our meetings seem to take place at a third location) I don't think it will make any real substantial difference.

She mentioned the other day she has a couple of bit parts in the 2nd Steve Martin 'Pink Panther' movie. (Which filmed around here a while ago.) I might have to see it now just to try to spot her.

Can't imagine I'd have any need or desire to see it otherwise, however...
