So I have to admit that I rarely stop in here very often lately...
Like many others, I have my reasons whether they are good or not...life, career, schooling, kids, etc. When I looked back at my posts, I realized I had only posted a couple of dozen times in the last two years, which is nowhere near what my activity level looked like 4-8 years ago where I was one of the most active site members. Seems like many others are gone and it looks like whole gaming groups/clans have gone elsewhere...how did I miss that drama? I love drama and am sad I missed telling someone to GTFO.
I will likely never be that active again, since life was much easier back then as well, but I am committing to try and be more active over the next year to bring a little more activity here. I don't know what that means, because I sure as shit am not going to scrape gaming sites to give you links, I am probably not going to review anything, I am not going to pick up new games just to play with more people, and am very unlikely to post a G.I. JoeBob pic of my wife (dated reference :)...I will likely just post more inane Bubba style comments on your posts and maybe the occasional stupid picture. I am one little raindrop and cannot create a waterfall on my own, but I will at least make an effort to chime in.
If you are going to play TF or still play any COD: Ghosts, add me to your FL. I will be cleaning people out that I either never played with or are not in the OG Grandfather group (even though some of you fucks in that group deleted me...where is the love?).
This is truly sad...Maybe we can get Mike Rowe involved?
"It was crushing news for students and faculty at South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC.)
The automotive technology department at the Olympia, Wash., school was contacted by a Chrysler representative this week, and told that it had two weeks to destroy the donated 1992 Dodge Viper supercar it used in its classes.
The vehicle is a pre-production model, and not certified for street use. It’s common practice for such cars to be given to educational programs to teach students about car repair and engineering, but the automakers technically retain legal ownership of the vehicles. This particular car was originally given to nearby Shoreline Community College, but SPSCC took possession of it in 2007.
It was also the fourth Viper produced, and considered by some to have historical significance due to its early build and the fact that it features a hard top four years before the production version would be offered with one."
This may be one of the few places on earth where you can place in the top 1% and still be slower than 5 of your fucking friends...it's a love/hate thing.
Hey everybody, sorry if I haven't been around much lately. As much as I'd like to say I'm balls-deep in some new girlfriend, partying it up, I'm mostly just busy & transitioning through some other shit (I'm just trying to follow the wisdom of the Mighty Sarcasmo Jones - get healthy, get a woman, and live the good life). The good life is coming - it's just taking a few detours along the way.
I've reached a point in my health where I have no choice but to get healthy. I was diagnosed with Diabetes (Type 2). To tell you the truth, it's thrown me for a fucking loop. I knew very little about managing it... fuck, all I knew was that I'd have to prick my finger daily & piss a lot. (BTW, my AC1 is 7.1). The first two weeks were rough - I was really depressed, and it just took that long to locate the diabetic dietician & nurse. So far, I'm making some great strides. I've been learning a lot about food, label reading, all that shit. The nurse even noted how well I've been documenting my readings & maintaining a nice range for someone newly diagnosed. That actually gave me a feeling of hope, like this will be the attempt that finally succeeds. I still need more discipline in exercise, but the right steps are being taken. I bought a Kinect with a few games. A coworker also gave me his copy of UFC Trainer (which I've yet to try, but hear it's gonna kick my ass).
On a much lighter note, Duncan is alive! After some last-minute parts, the total monetary damage is $1273.32. Loving it! Even though I've always been a console gamer, I decided to try my hand at some PC gaming. I've managed to build up a small library so far (even if a good amount of it is "classic") - Steam and GOG.com fucking rock! Even though it's my first exposure to certain games (like Dungeon Keeper), I've managed to build up a decent little library. On a side note, all my Xbox Live friends can rest assured that I'm not abandoning my consoles. I'm just incorporating the PC a bit as well.
The Podcast is going well, but we recently decided to change our format a bit. We'll be having fewer guests in favor of topical discussions & whatever the hell we feel like chatting about that day. The online dating thing is currently on hold. There was a great girl I was talking to, but it later came out that she's not ready for an actual relationship. I should focus more on myself at the moment, anyhow. I've also started doing the Social Media work for my aunt's company, so that's been filling up a chunk of time as well.
Anyway, I'm exhausted. Starting to fall asleep at the computer, so it's time to wrap up & call it a night.
