Monday 40

August 31, 2009

Hey Everybody.

I’m not all the way back to blogging on a regular schedule yet, but I’m getting there.

not too much to report right now other than one of my favorite Game Franchises God of War will be releasing a collection that will have a remastered in HD, Trophy-enabled version of the first two games of this series. The game will sell for $40 this Holiday season, and I’m really thinking of buying it, even though I have WORKING copies of them for the PS2.

Yes, they work with my PS3, because I was smart impatient enough to get one of the Backward-Compatible models when they first released. Oh, I did a Mini-article over at Platform Nation to spread the news to the gaming world. I’m still having fun writing for those guys, I just need to start looking for articles/game review opportunities so I can continue to get my name out there.

The True Blood Season Finale will be on September 13, 2009 @ 9pm. They are going to give everyone a chance to get caught up with the last 3 episodes September 6,2009. From the previews, this season finale is going to be epic !!!

I noticed that MellownMighty has made a small return to the blogging world, go check out her site.

This week get a free side salad from OneFresh Stir-Fry when you say “Listen or Loose”. There’s a story behind it…

College Football Season, is around the corner. This will be the first time in 3-4 years where I won’t be getting up @ 7am to work for the G&G crew (love the new web site guys !!!)  I miss them already; I might have to make a special appearance during a game day just to cheer them on.

I want to take this time to ask all of you out there to send a special prayer out to the family of my Fairy DogMother. She’s going through some things with her family, and can use all the prayers she can get.

That’s about it for now guys… Until next time !!!

Stranger in the 305

Captains Log: Star date 81309923.

So, I made it down to Miami safely yesterday. It was like a 7hr long directors cut of “The Fast and The Furious: Miami Speedway” Seriously, I think I drove at 90 an appropriate, legal speed while there were people around me flying at 90mph.

As I lay here and type this there were things I instantly noticed about Miami.

1. people can’t drive/ drive suicidally. I saw people switch lanes with only a car length of space; I counted 45 near accidents on my way here.

2. the street names? I shouldn’t have to pass SW 93 st, ave, ct, pl  THEN see SW 94th… I propose Miami gets their streets renamed, immediately.

3.We met the planner, she’s amazing. Yes, she lives way down in Miami, but it was totally worth it. I was so happy to listen to her speak with her oh so perfect Jamaican accent. It didn’t sound like Ms. Cleo, or any other negative stereotype, but sounded genuine. I hope I was paying attention to WHAT she was saying instead of how it sounded…

and to top it off, she gave us mangoes !!! I hope they don’t show up in her fees…

Anyways, You should check her out if you want a wedding planned. She’s giving us a GREAT deal on her rate.

We finally made it to our destination, and we were greeted by 3 adorable girls (and by we, I mean she) as we hung out and ate chocolate cake, I was given the opportunity to gaze into the past of my fiancée.

She hasn’t changed. You could tell by the photos that her feisty-ness  was developed and cultivated at a young age…

Today there are a few things we are going to try and do while we’re here… unfortunately, the list of places to go a few friends of mine sent me won’t be completed.
