Take me home tonight
Woo HOO!!!! I just got a new computer! I also have the best girlfriend in the world. H-Bomb waited at my apartment today so she could accept and sign for my FedEx package and she EVEN drove it to my work so I could get started on putting it together right away! Huzzah!
FedEx did a strange thing though. I was told that someone had to be present at my apartment to sign for the package. But Heather said someone had just knocked on the door and bailed....leaving some very expensive stuff just hangin out on my doorstep.
It's been a long time since I've had a brand new machine so I'm very excited.
Usually though it seems like these things often dont go according to plan...so I have to reserve some of my excitement for when everything is all set up in my room and running a new game. Who knows if I'll have to ship a part back or something like that.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.
I recently borrowed the DVD set of "Band of Brothers"
and despite each episode following a similar plot pattern, it's extremely engaging. I watched about 3 episodes last night. Things like "Band of Brothers" and "Saving Private Ryan" always produce some conflicting emotions and desires in me. On the one hand it makes the idea of war absolutely abhorrent. I can't imagine being tested like that, or being confronted by those horrors. On the other hand it makes me want to jump onto a Battlefield: 1942
server and kill some fools.
Anyhow...I recommend the Band Of Brothers series.
There's a big project we're all working on around here. Most of my regular readers already know about it...but I can't really talk about it here yet. But I'll keep the rest of you informed as soon as I can. It's pretty big!
Lastly I finally started my sim-league in Madden. The one that stars computer versions of me and a bunch of my friends. If your interested in following along. You can read about it here
