You know what bugs me? Obama hasn’t even taken the seat of president yet, and people are already saying “He’s the best president we’ve ever had!!!”, to this I say loudly..WTF? People drone on about how he’s going to pull us up out of the mud and put us back on top!

This is all great and stuff..but, best president ever? what? he’s not even president yet. I’m sorry, did someone go for a ride with doc brown into the future? because I honestly don’t know how anyone can say he’s the best president ever when he’s only president elect! Don’t get me wrong, i hope he does turn out to be all that and a bag of cheetos, but for fucks sake man! “He’s going to be the best.” “He’s going to save the country!” No pressure eh? Let the man breath! Stop making these assumptions, stop adding pressure to this guy, as if running a country wasnt bad enough. As if cleaning up after Bush wasn’t bad enough. He also has all this pressure you people are adding. You’re turning him into an urban legend is what yer doing.

That being said, no matter WHAT happens, Bush is gone so I’m happy.

I recently finished Fallout 3 on the xbox 360 — Well, actually I accidentally finished it. The main stoyline is actually VERY short. So, not knowing it was the end, due to the shortness I carried on, and to my surprised finished the game, and unfortunately once you finish, you can’t continue playing your character. So, if i want to finish most of the other quests and storylines in fallout 3, I have to load from a previous save file I suppose.

Anyway, after finishing the game, i got a healthy hankerin’ for more post-apocalyptic  funtime! So, I went out and picked up Fallout 1, 2 and Fallout Tactics. Now, i have previously played the first 2 fallout games, although granted, not to completion due to that stupid friggen time limit! However I had never played Fallout Tactics, so naturally thats the one I started playing first.

Wow.

That’s all I can say — Wow.

I don’t mean wow in the good way either. I meant Wow in the “WTF were they thinking?!” kinda way. The story is horrid, the controls and gameplay COULD have been better. I realise this was a different direction than the previous 2 fallout titles, but c’mon! This game SUCKED! Not just because it was “Different” either! In fact, I love turn based strategy games as much as I do Role play. The X-com games used to rank on the top of my list of best games “EVER!”

Anyway, I was extremely disappointed with tactics, and glad I didn’t pick it up when it first came out. 😦

Tell me do you think it’d be all right
If I could just crash here tonight
You can see I’m in no shape for driving
And anyway I’ve got no place to go
And you know it might not be that bad
You were the best I’d ever had
If I hadn’t blown the whole thing years ago
I might not be alone
Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place…hey jealousy
And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around
If you don’t expect too much from me
You might not be let down
Cause all I really want is to be with you
Feeling like I matter too
If I hadn’t blown the whole thing years ago
I might be here with you
Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place…hey jealousy

Well, it’s nearly christmas time, and people are getting all christmasy and all that. I however am not one of those people. I am not really a big fan of xmas, and I haven’t been for awhile. My house is void of an xmas tree, No carols are echoing within the walls of my home and no stockings are being hung by the chimney with care. True, I don’t really have a chimney, so even if I wanted to, I couldn’t hang one up.

Don’t get me wrong! I’m not a modern day scrooge, if you stop me in the street and wish me a merry christmas I won’t reply with snarled ‘Bah Humbug!’, in fact I will wish you a merry christmas as well, and possibly throw in a happy new year. See? Not very scroogelike.

Quite simply, I don’t really celebrate christmas. I don’t have plans to ruin christmas for others, or trying to get a law passed that makes it illegal to sing carols outside my house. That’s all a personal choice, and everyone is entitled to their own choices. I just choose not to celebrate it.

So, why don’t I join in the festivities? Well, to begin with I am an atheist. I don’t believe in god, and if you ask any religious person they will happily tell you that jesus is the reason for the season. Since I don’t believe in God I obviously don’t believe the son of god popped out of a virgin. So, whats the point in celebrating the birth of what I believe to be a fictional character. Does anyone celebrate the birth of Indiana Jones or Buck Rogers? No, they most certainly do not! So, basically when it’s all said and done, Christmas to me is as special as a thursday.

To top that off, the holidays for me are a really bad time, like they are for most. So, I prefer to curl up in bed, read a book, drink some coffee and just relax.

Three important rules for breaking up
Don’t put off breaking up when you know you want to
Prolonging the situation only makes it worse
Tell him honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly
Don’t make a big production
Don’t make up an elaborate story
This will help you avoid a big tear jerking scene
If you wanna date other people say so
Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected
Even if you’ve gone together for only a short time,
And haven’t been too serious,
There’s still a feeling of rejection
When someone says she prefers the company of others
To your exclusive company,
But if you’re honest, and direct,
And avoid making a flowery emotional speech when you brake the news,
The boy will respect you for your frankness,
And honestly he’ll appreciate the kind of straight forward manner
In which you told him your decision
Unless he’s a real jerk or a cry baby you’ll remain friends

I’m head of the class
I’m popular
I’m a quarter back
I’m popular
My mom says I’m a catch
I’m popular
I’m never last picked
I got a cheerleader chick

Being attractive is the most important thing there is
If you wanna catch the biggest fish in your pond
You have to be as attractive as possible
Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean
Wash it at least every two weeks
Once every two weeks
And if you see Johnny football hero in the hall
Tell him he played a great game
Tell him you like his article in the newspaper

I’m the party star
I’m popular
I’ve got my own car
I’m popular
I’ll never get caught
I’m popular
I make football bets.
I’m a teachers pet

I propose we support a one month limit on going steady
I think It will keep people more able to deal with weird situations
And get to know more people
I think if you’re ready to go out with Johnny
Now’s the time to tell him about your one month limit
He wont mind he’ll appreciate your fresh look on dating
And once you’ve dated someone else you can date him again
I’m sure he’ll like it
Everyone will appreciate it
You so novel what a good idea
You can keep you time to your self
You don’t need date insurance
You can go out with whoever you want to
Every boy, every boy, in the whole world could be yours
If you’ll just listen to my plan
THE TEENAGE GUIDE TO POPULARITY

I’m head of the class
I’m popular
I’m a quarter back
I’m popular
My mom says I’m a catch
I’m popular
I’m never last picked
I’m a cheerleader chick

I’m the party star
I’m popular
I’ve got my own car
I’m popular
I’ll never get caught
I’m popular
I’m a teachers pet
I make football bets.

The blog has a xmas theme now, and so it will stay until the end of the year..Unless theres some problems with it..then i’ll just kick it to the curb and pretend it was never put up.

Yahoo answers

Posted: December 7, 2008 in WWW and beyond!

Have you ever heard of Yahoo answers? Of course you have. It’s a great place to go in order to get advice, from people you don’t know, basically gauranteeing that the answers are unbiased. This is a good thing. However, Yahoo answers has other uses, namely to tick people off and for asking stupid questions…which is usually how i tend to use it. I have mentioned one of my questions before in the past, and now will tell you about another question i posted, just for shits and giggles and to see how people reacted.

The question was as follows…

what do i get a mistress for xmas? I want to get something nice, but doesnt attract notice from her husband,or my wife…any suggestions?

Now, obviously the question had no basis in reality, as I am a widower….HOWEVER, it still sounded like a good question. I got answers ranging from helpful, to just down right ANGRY. (In case anyone is wondering, purses, candy and gift certificates seems to be the best way to go according to the general answering peeps). However, the helpful answers aren’t what im focusing on. I am focusing on the angry or sarcastic answers…Such as:

you give her nothing……
you give yourself MORALS…..
SHE IS MARRIED….. THAT MEANS… HANDS OFF.
GIVE HER HER HUSBAND BACK.
and confess to your wife…. that you have been cheating on her.

A good angry answer! I liked it, i giggled a bit about it, but its still a good fricken answer!

How ’bout an *ss whoopin from your wife?
Scum bag!
Most of them seem to agree though, that I am a loser, of some sorts, or feel I should give her a divorce attorney:O
The most interesting answer I recieved however was as follows.
Shove it up the booty, that way when she gives him the poon later, he won’t have a stretched out, messy, coochie to deal with.
That’s just the current answers within the last 15 mins, im eager to see what the night brings 😉
