Woo! I'm a winner! -UPDATE-
I just got a call back from these people. After ignoring two attempts to reach me, they unblocked their number when they called. The number they used is (876) 893-8401. They guy still claims to be Dave Bradley. At least he kept his story consistent. Check my earlier post if you don’t know what this is about. Also, keep in mind (this should be common sense too), if you win a prize and they...
Woo! I'm a winner!
Woo, go me! I won $950,000 and a White Mercedes from Publisher’s Clearing House! All I have to do is go to K-Mart, pick up a Green dot MoneyPak card and load it with $500, but I’ll get that back after the lawyer shows up to deliver things, so it’s all good....
Came home from last night’s training (Boy Scouts - for the boys, not me :p), plugged in my laptop which I’d let them use for training and went to do laundry. I came back almost 2 hours later (shut up, I was behind!) to find my laptop display didn’t want to display things anymore. /sigh Time to grab things off the laptop and take it into Best Buy so they can ship it off to where...
(Sorry for the bad language, I’m a tad frustrated) Nice try ordering almost $500 of stuff with my debit card and having it shipped overseas. Too bad for you, I actually watch my accounts and contact people when something shows up that shouldn’t be there. The card is already cancelled and I’ve contacted the company that was GOING TO post the charge. Guess what? Your $500 order is...
First, I make mistakes two. But that doesn’t mean I can’t bitch about grammar. (See what I did their? Twice now!) Ewe sea, I want everyone to except me four me, not because I’m some acception to the rule… OK seriously, I can’t do this. I can’t f*ck up that badly without it bothering me, even when I do this on purpose! For the love of everything holy, learn...

The Ghost of Mae Nak (2005)
I just finished watching this (barely in time) before Netflix pulled it from streaming; what an incredibly frightening movie. It’s not that it was scream at the top of your lungs scary, it was just creepy and nerve wracking. Maybe not the best idea to watch at midnight alone… Everyone else is asleep, and I find myself partway through needing to check laundry quick. Nothing like be...
Tora! Tora! Tora!
I just watched “Tora! Tora! Tora!”. What an AMAZING movie! I’m not a huge history fan, and I know the basics of what happened at Pearl Harbor; Japan surprise attacks America, America retaliates / enters WWII. But to see the events that lead up to it and how so many people dropped the freaking ball when it came to warning signs that Japan was going to attack… unbelievable!...
I just watched the Goemon movie on HuluPlus (live action, dunno if there’s an animated series/movie or not as I write this). I have to admit, I was very impressed. I liked the story a lot, I think the action was done well all things considered. Sure it’s unrealistic to think a person could jump as high as Goemon, but it only felt slightly out of place for the movie. I was surprised a...
Still my favorite weather site →
What description is needed? :) OK sure, it doesn’t tell you anything about what’s coming up for weather, but no one ever gets that right anyway. :P
Happy π (Pi) Day!
In honor of Pi Day, I wear my Apple Pi shirt. ^_^
Wait time in queue
All other agents are busy assisting other customers. I’m #1 in queue. My wait time is 0 minutes… Why am I waiting again?
FB, G+ and Twitter - Sorry about that...
OK, those of you who are my friends on Facebook, have me in a Google+ circle or follow me on Twitter… I’m sorry. You see, I got sick a couple weeks back with whatever it was that got passed around (apparently the whole midwest?) and missed an ENTIRE WEEK’S WORTH OF NEWS. I’m talking about the News I care about mind you… anime, games, J/K/CPOP news, etc. I just...
The Man from Nowhere
I just finished watching “The Man from Nowhere” on Netflix… omg fantastic movie! I wish I’d watched it sooner so you wouldn’t have to go watch it RIGHT NOW before they pull it from the streaming catalog. I don’t want to spoil this in case you do watch it now, or find it somewhere else, so I will just say this: Great action Main character is a total bad-ass in...
Dear gas companies
F you. Oil speculators? F you too. Just because you a-holes have all the money you need, it doesn’t mean the rest of us do. I hate that I’m getting dangerously close to going to work so I can earn money to buy the gas I need to get to work, and that’s all my paycheck covers. Maybe it’s not that bad, but the point is that gas prices need to start moving the other...
First, I realize I haven’t posted (or whined) in a while, and I have lots of old posts I want to go through… but that’s irrelevant right now. What I wanted to post about is caffeine. WTF?! Seriously, I’ve had two cups of coffee this morning and I feel like I’m yawning more and I’m more tired than if I’d just said “screw it, no coffee”....
Minutes before my Christmas Day ends… Merry Christmas all! Now, I noticed a problem with Christmas. My older son (almost 15) got AC Revelations and AC III from Santa. I have a couple recent PS3 purchases to play… but I think I just lost the PS3 to him again. WTF was Santa thinking? :P

Don, I don’t know that it’s fair to toss Wii U in here just yet; it did just launch recently. 3DS and Vita have been out long enough though, and I held off on buying both; I still don’t have a Vita and only recently got a 3DS because of what I felt was a great deal. Games should be cheaper too, especially if you buy them through a download service. You’re not getting any...
Gate.com customers should read this
So, minor issue today. I tried to get my email through my hosted site with Gate.com. I use gmail so it syncs to my phone and had just requested something from a site I know has emails sent “now”. I waited a couple minutes, asked gmail to sync and got an error. My first thought? “Eh, gmail must have just checked my account.” I checked my logs anyway. …I haven’t...
Here's hoping we all voted for the right...
Yay, the “ha ha Romney lost” posts already started. I knew it was a long-shot for someone different to be voted in, I just hope you’re all still happy in 4 years. I find it funny that these same people would likely bitch to no end if Obama wasn’t re-elected. I hope you get the progress you want and we (all of us) don’t get screwed over by the time Obama leaves office....
Election Day (woo? ._.)
I love this… I’m still not sure what I’m doing personally (I’ll figure it out in the next few hours), but I’m reading things online and recalling some things that were previously said. I’m sure people will argue with me (PMs here, replies here, Facebook or through Twitter) and that’s fine. I just needed to speak my mind. First, I seem to recall Obama...
To me, awesome is being able to stay home with a sick child, work from home and still get your work done. I won’t have to use sick time for my son, or at least not as much. I’m not putting a huge burden on my coworkers by not being in the office. I have a laptop provided by work, I can VPN to the office and (amazingly) CableOne’s connection is working fine for this. I’ve...
So, I’m kicking myself again. I’m rearranging my basement / “man cave”, and made the same damn mistake I do every time I move bookshelves when I move them in a temporary fashion. I pull books down, stack them, repeat until the shelf is clear, move the shelf and then… crap. The books are now completely backwards in regards to putting them back on the shelf. Oh well....
