(I didn't run over it. I didn't even try!)
(This game is amazing!)
... there's some dudes up around the bend. They will most likely shoot up my boat. :(
This weekend I've been playing a lot of Unreal Tournament 3. Last night doubleplusungood invited me to a game of Left 4 Dead. I was in the middle of a UT3 match so I went straight from that into the Left 4 Dead lobby.
When I got into the game I was upset to find out my double-jump was coming up short and my hoverboard was missing.
I love Penny Arcade but todays' strip really nails it. I can't stop laughing at the second panel.
Let's put this in bullet points:
- Patriarchal "father knows best" family structure
- Squeeze out as many kids as physically possible
- Home school the little brats
- Indoctrinate them in fundamentalist ideals
Is coming up soon. I'll be in Springfield. I want to eat food and play video games. Probably Rock Band 2 and Halo 3 and any multiplayer arcade games.
Here I am, in Kuwait again and hopefully for the last time. I spent $4 on a card that lets me use wireless internet for 24 hours and I won't even get to use it all before I'm shuffling through the paces that get me one step closer to home. My time to have all my bags with me and ready to go just moved up 8 hours, which is good news, unless it means I'll be spending more time sitting in the holding area but who cares. The sooner I'm in the holding area the sooner I'll be home. There's really not a whole lot else to say.
I was typing up what was the start of a monster entry on digital distribution but what's the fucking point? No one reads this shit. So the long and the short of it is Katie and I have quit buying CDs and now (almost) strictly buy DRM-free MP3s, Steam fucking rules, and Good Old Games better open up soon and they better find a reliable way to run System Shock 2. That would make my day, month, and year. X-Com Enforcer and X-Com Interceptor are dog poop. Just get the first 3 X-Com's. A watched clock never moves and I'm starting to get annnnnntsyyyyy. I hate PT and I'm tired of waking up early and never getting enough sleep.
Well I did. I told them I don't work well with him at all and that I didn't like him or his (lack of) work ethic and now I've gone and hurt his little feelings. To top it all off, I've got to live with the guy. Well this may make things awkward. I'm not sorry for whatever he heard me say because nothing I said was a lie. Maybe now he can quit pretending he's my friend and we can maintain some form of mutual apathy toward each other for the sake of keeping appearances professional.
But I don't like him. I never have and I never will. And I don't have to like him. I don't particularly care what he does or what happens to him and if he were to drop dead tomorrow I might even throw a little party. He's the everpresent thorn in my side and will be until he's gone for good. I know you can never escape shitty coworkers but I really think I'd be a much happier person if he were gone since he's constantly the source of my gripes this time around.
But whatever. I'm getting shorter every day and he's much easier to ignore when I'm at home.
