Yup this Sat will be two weeks that I've been married. It's GREAT!
Yup.. Got me a job at Starbucks for about 3 months now. It's been great. Fun job. Now it's time I move out. So I'm on the hunt. I'd like to be out by June or sooner if possible.. That's my life in a nutshell right now. Got a crap load of snow outside right now. Got myself a cup of coffee I'm inside listening to some music. Gonna play some guitar. Lifes not to bad. But I do gotta work tomorrow if I can get myself out of my driveway. Kind of doubting that can happen. People are getting stuck in 4x4.
Been awhile I know... I have had a lot of changes.. Mainly the one of my business calling it quits. We are just to slow right now.. It's coming to a close.. So I sent a resume into a local place here. And I got a call back today about the guy really wanting to meet me on Friday. So the job is....... Baking bread at a local shop.. Baking/crafting Artisan bread. Sounds like a blast.. It's not something I was looking for exactly but after reading the ad I was excited to learn this trade... So I hope I get it.. Cheers.
I've only had my laptop back 1 day after having sent it in for repairs. I have an MSI GX620. I love the laptop. Especially what I paid for it.. The things GREAT! The company's customer service however is HORID! The customer service alone will make me never buy from this company again. I like to know that IF something goes wrong on my laptop people will do their job. They were supposed to repair my hinges and give me a new HDD due to mine failing. HDD was no issue. However the hinges they needed to charge for due to it being a new case. However my laptop was under 3 year warranty for parts and labor but they STILL couldn't cover it. 140$ charge. I bit the bullet and said yes to charge me. They said it would be done in a couple of days and I would have my laptop back. "Fine" I said. PFFFFF what a bunch of BULL that was! It took them 2 weeks after that! Finally the only thing they could do for me was give me 2 day air shipping. Oh thanks knock a day off big thanks! So I get it on Monday. Everything "seemed" fine. Until I started using my touchpad more and more. The thing is deffective! You gotta be kidding me! I know it was their fault too because it worked perfect before they had it. AND they installed a new case so even easier to point the finger at MSI and say they didn't hook things up correctly. OR something happened to it in the installation of the case. SO now I have to call MSI AGAIN and go threw the painful tech support of TRYING to have the guy on the other line understand me and what I need him to do! My laptop will probably be gone at the minimum of 3 weeks AGAIN. That is if they have their freaking act together and can actually do their job and repair a laptop in the time they say they will.. SO if you get ANYTHING out of reading this... Don't buy from MSI kids.. Spread the word. Learn from my mistake.
I've been waiting for this since about 2007.. It's everything I've wanted and more.. Brilliant game.
Soon I get my laptop back!
Soon I get an iPhone 4
Soon LA Noire comes!
These are the things I look forward to.
Well.. I finished Crysis 2. Really good. Actually a lot better then I thought. Multilplayer is OK. Since everyone has nano suits that makes it interesting. But it's pretty run of the mill. But the story was actually really solid. I plan on doing a YouTube review when I get my laptop back. So stay tuned for that.
Just picked up the Limited Edition (Not much different from standard but comes with some stuff). It was the same as standard. I've played maybe an hour now.. I gotta say I'm surprised.. It's actually pretty dang good. Great graphics. I think I like it a lot better then the first. Especially before the Aliens came into play on the first.. The aliens in this one fit in really well.. I'm just starting to come to them. I played the multiplayer demo back when it came out and I wasn't to impressed. But everyone has been saying it's great.. It does have quite a few bugs that a game of this caliber shouldn't really have. But it's still damn impressive. Check it out if you're in the FPS mood.
To tunes.. Should be sleeping.
For a new car. I took my truck to the mechanic today and he's saying it won't last much longer. So that means I don't have much longer to search for a new vehicle. And vehicles are pricey! Especcialy small trucks like I like. I'm right now currently driving a 1983 Nissan Datsun pickup. It's my first vehicle. It's old. It's got 230K miles on it. I spent 600$ on it. I'm sure I can get another 3K miles out of it. Maybe more. But not much more. So I've been on Craigslist most of the day since I got home looking for new vehicles. I'm pretty sold on a Hatchback. Mainly Geo Metro's or Honda Civics. I found a 91 Civic for 1750$ (OBO). It looks roomy for both driving friends around and for my work tools. I've read up on 91 Civics and it looks like it gets about 28 MPG.. Which is better then what I'm currently getting (20 or so MPG). I would really love to get a Geo Metro. Those things are rocking 45-50 MPG. That is freakin awesome! Gas is about 3.79$ here in my area. So at 45-50 MPG it would be perfect. However Geo Metro's seem to be a little bit harder to find right now. But I'm not really in the market to buy right now. Give me a month or two and I will be able to start calling some of these numbers to maybe buy. But I'm pretty bummed about my truck. It's a good little runner. It's gonna be the vehicle I always remember. Blasting Lamb of God as I cruise threw town. Good times. Anyways all this really means is that I will have less money for new games.. HOWEVER! I'm gonna buy LA Noire. That games looks freaking AMAZING.
Anyways not much point to this blog I guess. Just thought I would update. Work is really starting to pick up which is good for $$ but becomes stressful VERY quickly. We will be doing a job shortly that has been bid at 20K. It's a custom house. Not nearly the most expensive house I've worked on but still pretty pricey place for us to work on in quite awhile. This house has 70 windows through out it. Mainly all looking out threw to the Gorge. It's an amazing house.
So this weekend is gonna be killer.. My folks will be leaving Friday for Chelan WA. So I'm inviting an out of town friend from the Tacoma WA area (near Seattle). I haven't seen him in 10 years. He's gonna get here and we're gonna go see Sucker Punch. We've both been REALLY wanting to see this movie for quite some time. It looks so dang good. Saturday I'm throwing a little Rock Band shindig. Gonna have my out of town friend meet some local friends here and we will throwdown some Rock Band. Gonna buy some Papa Murphy's Pizza and just have fun with friends. Isn't that mainly what it's all about? Then Sunday we will pretty much just hangout till he has to leave. Then my folks get back sometime mid day Monday. Overall I think it's gonna be a pretty sweet Weekend.
Well I gotta get up pretty early again tomorrow so I shall be sleeping. You know it feels pretty good to write again. I do wish it got more comments and reads but I'm grateful for who ever still reads and comments already. It's been so long. I may do a Gamespot only video this Sunday if I have time. Which I should. It's been awhile since I've done a video for Gamespot. I still have YouTube going which GO sub if you haven't already.
