I work at.....ahhh crap...I'm unemployed = \ lol

Got laid off last year around this time (job sucked anyway, factory work), lost my apartment, girlfriend took off, had to move back to the 'rents.

So I raided Borders Books for computer programming textbooks, consumed all of them and went back to college this fall as a computer programming major =D

Way to rise above all that crap. I'm going to dedicate my FF marathon to you.

edit: I also took the Chicago Firefighter exam YEARS ago...well they sent me some stuff about this time last year to take a physical. I took it and passed. They sent me a letter that the next step was a medical exam and background check but nothing never came.

I'm not holding my breath, since Chicago's budget is fucked. But on the other hand CFD stands to lose a lot of staff due to retirement and such.

Watching the Blackhawks v Calgary :)

My daddy was the happiest little boy on Earth when I bought him the Blackhawks jersey... a Captain jersey - he's liked the team since the 1960's, it seem only right.

Summarizing 300 pages of text to notes.

You all have some good taste

+1 has been watching me play dq8 while she does shit around the crib. She was thinking of getting into it, which is cool.

But can anyway recommend a ps2 rpg-ish game that is somewhat light hearted but cuts out all the crap that drags out rpgs? for instance, all the random battles and ridiculous saving system of DQ8 would insure she'd play for like 2 hours and then ditch it.

The thing she likes about dq8 is the music (even though it's repetitive as all hell), the colorful graphics, and the wacky monsters.

I'll probably pick up katamari for her for xmas stocking stuffer type gift in addition to anything that you guys might come up with.

Help the wookies celebrate LIFE DAY and lose some of your life in the process

Lara Croft...the university years.  Hope the game ends with her finding treasure and spending it on the boob job she clearly gets.
Maybe she doesn't need one. We haven't seen the full design yet ;)

These will do just fine

I need to give How to Train Your Dragon a shot I guess. I didn't care for how the characters looked but I've heard a lot of good mentions from friends and posters here.

And, Grim, no Gino's East? :)

This has great potential, I'll be sure keeping my eye on this

We had a first real snow (and real for us, I don't want to hear it from someone in the arctic circle that we don't know what snow is) and our block looked awesome. Mostly 100 year old 3 flats with old trees over a narrow street. Looked awesome. My camera's memory card is missing.

I like the 1st two HP movies for their charm and kiddie movie feel. It makes me feel like I'm a kid watching Willow, Neverending Story, Goonies, etc all over again.

And if you dig the style in HP...feast your eyes on.... SIRIUS BLACK

I played a demo and was blown away by the graphics. Stunning.

I'll pick this up sometime in '11
