These days were Saturday through Wednesday – 10/15 through 10/19/2011. I have “Awake and Alive”, by Skillet; and “Love Walks In”, by Van Halen in my head tonight. Especially “Awake and Alive” – that song kicks ass.
“I’m at war with the world and they
try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I’m slipping from your arms
It’s getting harder to stay awake
And my strength is fading fast
You breathe into me at last….”
Well I’ve been distracted for the past several days, so I will try to relate what went on during all this time. On Saturday I got up and did my bi-weekly shopping for groceries and such. This week I wanted to hit Best Buy and find some scary movies on Blu Ray I didn’t already have for my annual scary movie watching fest that happens from now through Halloween night. I also decided to go to GameStop and turn in some PS3 games I knew I wasn’t going to play anymore and see if I could pick up a game or two with the store credit.
So I went to Best Buy and picked up Alien, Aliens, Friday the 13th remake (I really liked it!), Halloween 2 (the original 1981 version – not Rob Zombie’s just absolutely rancid remake. That was, hands down, the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life – although his Halloween 1 remake was kind of ok.), and Interview with the Vampire. I was hoping to be well on my way to starting my movie watching fest, but what I picked up at GameStop is what has had me distracted since Saturday evening.
I went to GameStop and traded in Madden 2011, MLB 2011 The Show, the first Assassin’s Creed, and the first Force Unleashed and got $35.90 store credit. I got so much because I’m a Powerup Card member, plus I agreed to put $5 down on Batman – Arkham City. So in return I bought used copies of Dragon Age 2 and Grand Theft Auto 4. I used to have GTA4, but I took my copy to my brother’s once and my nephew liked it so much that I let him keep it. So I bought those two games, plus the $5 down on Arkham city, and it all cost me just $10 after using up my store credit. LOL! That kicks so much ass! Anyway, it’s Dragon Age 2 that has been taking up all my free time since Saturday. I’ve been staying up way late every night playing it since then that I’ve found myself too tired to write in the blog here. Needless to say I am enjoying DA2 immensely! I highly recommend it to any RPG fan for sure.
So that was pretty much my entire Saturday – I went to Best Buy, Game Stop, Target, and Publix. Then I made dinner and played DA2 the rest of the day / night. On Sunday I watched football all day, and then played DA2 all night – after Sunday Night Football of course. On Monday I worked from home and watched Monday Night Football, and then played DA2 the rest of the night. My fantasy football team, The Time Lords, beat The Frighteners this week to the tune of 219 to 188. So I had a great FFL week, yay for me! Tuesday I worked from home and played DA2 after my shift. Wednesday saw me get a severe headache, I believe it was due to lack of sleep (shame on me), so I didn’t go to work. I slept in and played DA2 some, but went to bed fairly early. Now it’s Thursday, and I’m at work writing this right now. But more on Thursday when I write the entry for 10/20.
Anyway – that is what has been going on with me. I haven’t been watching my DVR shows, so I know that is horribly backed up right now. I’m debating on whether I want to go home and try to catch that up, or play more DA2. I will probably try to catch that up. I hate the feeling of being so far behind on my shows, and my DVR free space is shrinking I know. Shame on me. I need to manage my time better, which also primarily includes me forcing myself to get more sleep. I can’t keep doing this to myself – I’m not in my twenties any more. I know I am kicking my health in the balls right now. I need to cut this shite out.
Anyway – been communicating well with Elisha over these days. Also communicating with Todd via texting and gmail, and my bro here and there as well. Been IMing with Mom, and a bit with Danielle. The Hurricanes played the Bruins again this past Tuesday, and the Hurricanes won again! Danielle was not pleased lol, but I thought it was brilliant, of course. Oh – almost forgot – on Monday night me and Elisha tested my Murmur server using our respective Mumble clients and it worked like a charm! I’m just wondering how it will work when a bunch of people connect to it. I need to get the others the info on it and see how many people I can get talking on it at once. We will see….
That’s all I can think of right now, so I’m going to wrap this up. Until next time when it all will be After the Fact!
