My God... must see! I can practically sing the opening theme from memory

Its cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere,
I'm all alone, more or less.
Let me fly, far away from here,
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.

I want to lie, shipwrecked and comatose,
Drinking fresh, mango juice,
Goldfish shoals, nibbling at my toes,
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun,
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.

I'll pack my bags and head into hyperspace
Where I'll succeed at time-warp speed
Spend my days in ultraviolet rays
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.

We'll lock on course straight through the universe
You and me and the galaxy
Reach the stage where hyper-drive's engaged
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun,
Fun, fun, fun, In the sun, sun, sun.


A show that encompasses the last surviving human (god help us) Lister, an evolved cat, Cat, a dead hologram, a cleaning mechanized, and an insane moronic ship AI.

Seriously... if you can sing that opening theme, you are in like flynn my friend

It was pretty silly most of the time from what I remember. With Dr. Who production values... but I watched every episode they ever broadcast in Boston.

My lady really wants to see Tron as well. I'm gonna see if I can score IMAX 3D tix for this one. Make it an event!

So, Crack... how was it? The movie, that is... And the date?

I'm 95% percent certain I have a girlfriend now.

Like..... O.o

The movie was OK. Not the best movie but also FARRR from the worst movie. I'd give it a solid 8/10. Cool visuals, probably would be more blown away if I could watch the 3D version, but alas, only 2d flicks here.

Resting up today to recover from last night's post-final/'oh hey its the weekend' session of partying. We watched The Boondocks and took shots of tequila whenever they said 'nigga'. It's like I can feel my liver routing out a bunch of molecule-sized banditos

wow... no posts all day?

I was a sub again, and got to play a game of curling tonight. The opposing team was doing nothing but take outs and missing. Won the game after 6 ends with a score of 11 to nothing.

Define Creeper plz.

Ohwait:
A person who does weird things, like stares at you while you sleep, or looks at you for hours through a window. usually a close friend or relative. you know right away if that person is a creeper or does creeper things. it is not hard to spot the creeper.

jeff was the "creeper" in the background.


So no, I'm not a creeper.

I can be your creeper if you want..... but that would be awkward and expensive, as I'd have to travel a lot.

Creepers, the saddest creature in the game just wants a hug, and ends up exploding when you give them one.

Just wait until you run into a skeleton riding a spider.... or the Nether

I want a hug!

My car is in the shop. Lots of warning lights on the dash... again.

But I have put more miles on it in the last 2 months than I have since I drove to D.C.

Got the feeling it's not going to be a cheap fix this time. I hope I'm wrong. I think I need new tires too.

But: I'll probably be doing a lot of driving the GF and kids in the next couple of weeks... I want it to be in top shape.

I'm off until New Years Eve now. Whoo!

Gotta finish doing the XMas shopping today. Ugh...

What TV did you get? One of those 3D dealies? Plasma, LED Full Backlit? I'm curious.

Finished my christmas shopping in full yesterday. Hopefully my tax returns this year will be good because of my full time student status.

Had the GF over today. We watched Tron and the Hitchhiker's Guide movie. We also played some XBox.

Mom was here all day though... so that was as far as it went.

She ASKED for me to fire up the 360. She loves racing games... though she was a bit overwhelmed by Forza and GT5. She's more used to Mario Kart and the like.

I'll have to get her some racing games for the Wii she has.

After giving it a try, she asked me to show her how I play it. So I took her for a virtual tour of the Nurburgring in a Zonda.

I have to try her on Guitar Hero or Rock Band too... I think she'll really like those.

She wants to read HHGG now... as well as the other Douglas Adams books (Dirk Gently series...)

I really need to get tix for Tron Legacy now.

Yeah... I know.

But it's a start... I'll convert her yet!

She owns the Lexus sport coupe (SC 400), and she's a fairly... 'enthusiastic' driver. It shouldn't take much! She used to go Go-Carting all the time when she was a kid, too...

And Hey! At least she plays games!

I went out the other day and got second controllers for both systems. I'll need another guitar controller at some point too... Now I can head-to-head or local co-op.

The PS3 controller came with Little Big Planet GOTY Edition. Looks fun. I'm not great at platformers... but I'll give it a shot. Something that the kids might like as well...

In passing last night I mentioned to my lady that they are making another Diablo game.

I think her world view collapsed from the statement.

2010 was a nice year. So many things turned to the better. Many of my views have changed. My whole life has changed. It's great. I've waited all my life for this to happen, but didn't know. Ed, it's great you met a girl, IT'S GREAT, it seems she fits perfectly. It's the same thing that I have. EVERYTHING JUST FITS VERY WELL.

Oh and Niner, just give your sister a hug. (Late, I know.)

P.S.: You guys are a mess. ;*
