I Love My Wife

As I sit here in the waiting room while Rhea has her cerclage, I can't help but think about how lucky I am to have her. I honestly don't deserve someone as awesome as she is. I could never tell or show her how much I appreciate her and love her.

We took a trip to Winstar Casino yesterday for Alana's 24th birthday celebration. I lost $40 pretty quick, but then won $20 and ended up with $15. Still left with less than I came with, but oh well. We had fun and tore up the buffet. Good times...good times...

We're Pregnant!

Now that Christmas is over and we've told our parents, I can now let the cat out of the bag to the rest of the world.

My wife, Rhea, is pregnant!!!

She's about 13 weeks along. We got our sonogram last week, which explains this tweet. We don't know what the sex is yet, but hopefully soon.

We gave our parents a framed copy of this picture for Christmas. That's how we told them. It was pretty awesome!

Dead Space's Sphincter

The leviathan in Dead Space has brought me to a complete stop in the game. I've tried killing that damn asshole more times than I can count, with each time taking roughly 15 minutes or more. It's ridiculous how difficult this boss is.

The problem is the lack of ammo mostly. Once I run out I just circle that area hoping to find something. Then I eventually get pounded by one of those tendrils and die.

Good times...

My opinion of the game is still overwhelmingly positive, but this has really thrown a wet blanket on the experience. I've ignored just about every other game (including City Folk) because I want to make it through Dead Space.

Marley And Me?

I came across a story about the movie Marley and Me this weekend that totally blew me away. Up until Sunday, we wanted to see this movie based solely on the fact that it looks like a fun dog movie and as you may or may not know, we are dog people through and through.

According to the story and subsequent research we've done, the story of Marley is not a happy one. It is, but there comes a point in the movie (SPOILER) that they have to put the dog to sleep. Not to mention that the Screen Crave story also mentions a baby that doesn't have a heartbeat.

I honestly don't think I could watch this movie. I fell apart during I Am Legend, and I don't think that death scene was shot in a tearjerker way like I'm sure the one in Marley and Me is.

Plus, I don't want to be in a movie theater crying uncontrollably while trying to manage those damn movie theater stairs.

Best News EVAR!

This is why I will never regret my decision to buy Rock Band instead of Guitar Hero.

Ten will be released as DLC on March 24th to coincide with the re-release of the album. I'm so damn excited for this it's not even funny. I want to get the full re-release package that's like $140, but I don't know if that's in the proverbial cards. If nothing else I will get the least expensive one and orgasm all over it!

Speaking of orgasming all over your self, I saw the new Wolverine trailer today and it's fucking spectacular! Fabulous even! It really looks like their going to do his origin justice. I spotted a lot of different characters in the trailer, including Wraith, Mariko, and possibly Maverick. Not to mention Gambit and Sabertooth. It's going to be awesome!

Video Mish Mash

I've come across a few videos yesterday and last night that I want to share. One is of the new Terminator Salvation trailer. It looks bad ass! One is a Walker: Texas Ranger clip with a kid that is infected with a serious disease. And by serious, I mean hilarious! And the last one is one of the saddest things I've ever seen. This poor kid gets what he thinks is a Xbox 360 for Christmas. Unfortunately, his parents have filled the box with clothes. Totally fucked up. Enjoy!

Weekend Fun

This damn cold sucks. I started feeling crappy on Saturday. I'm just tired and sleepy. Sucks.

Anyway, we went and visited Ethan on Friday. Three years since he passed. It still hurts, which is actually good. I don't want to ever forget that little boy. My precious boy.

Christmas is coming pretty quick it seems. I've still got to buy for my mom and sister. I have no idea what to get my mom, so I'll probably go the gift card route. Alana is easier, especially since she made an Amazon wishlist. But, I think I'll go off the list and get her something else.

I'm still working through Dead Space, although it's getting harder. I'm low on ammo and trying to get passed some monster that regenerates. It sucks, but when I get passed it, I will feel so good. Maybe not this good, but good.

They Keep Pulling Me Back In!

I hate Kohls. Well, that's not exactly true. I don't hate the store itself. I hate some of the people that work there. You know what I hate more than them? I hate being put on the spot. Let me explain.

I worked overnight Monday night. Then I worked at my day job until 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Then, I came home and the stuff with Buttercup happened, so I didn't get a ton of sleep. Then I found out I had to work late at my day job again for testing even though I was scheduled at Kohls. Of course, my day job takes priority, so I called Kohls and told them I won't be in. This is where everything goes sideways.

The guy I talked to is a huge douchebag. He's the type that's married to the store. He stays late and goes above and beyond. A real cock smoker. Anyway, he proceeds to tell me how late he'll be there, so when I'm done at my other job I can still come in. I'm to call him later and update him. Thanks, douchenozzle. I gave you the opportunity to call someone in to cover for my shift, but instead you want to make me jump through hoops because you're too hopped up on Mountain Dew and (probably) meth that you can't think straight.

So, I call him back around 10:30 p.m. to let him know that I just got done and still won't be in because I haven't had any sleep and if I work overnight, I will be a zombie at my day job.

I was almost out. I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. But no...

"When do you work next?"
"Saturday", I say.
"Can you work on Thursday? I'm losing people like flies."
"Great! See you Thursday."

And I'm boned. What the hell do you say? I was caught completely off guard. You know how you always try to anticipate what the other person will say on calls like that? I mean, before you call you go through the scenarios in your mind so you have something on deck to respond with. That was not one of the scenarios I went through.

And you know the longer you sit there and uh and um the more they know you're trying to think of an excuse. And for some reason, it's not acceptable to tell the complete and total truth in those situations.

"Can you work on Thursday?"
"Honestly, I would rather cut my dick off with a rusty coat hanger."
"Ok, see you Saturday!"

For some reason, I don't think that would fly.

Bad Times...

I got the awesome news yesterday that I'm getting a 10% pay decrease from my contracting company. It's a great Christmas present. One that I will remember for years to come!

After I got home, our dachshund Buttercup pooped out some blood. We were really worried about her. I looked it up and it seems to be something that happens. Still, I'm worried about her. If it happens again I'm going to take her to the vet.

My friend Angie at work says it has happened to her dogs, too. Mostly due to nervousness or something they ate.

So anyway, yesterday rocked.

How are you?

K.K. Slider Plush

Since learning of its existence, I've been wanting to get one of these cute little plush K.K. Sliders. I found a couple sites that have them. They are coming from The Orient, so I can only assume they will be stuffed with hash or possibly children.

Find them here and here.

Dead Space

The only big Black Friday deal I partook in this year was at Target. I ran by there and grabbed me a copy of Dead Space for $30. Sweet merciful crap I love a game at half price!

That brings me to my first question. Why the hell aren't all games priced at thirty bucks? Hell, why aren't they just forty bucks?! I would be able to buy so many more titles. I understand the economics, so you don't have to explain that. I just think that if a game came out and was less expensive (but still a good game) then more people would buy it, therefore making just as much money for the company. It's just my wishful thinking, though. It will never happen. Dare to dream, I say. Dare to dream.

By the way, does Big Black Friday sound like it could be a porno? Just wondering...

Anyway, Dead Space is friggin' awesome! I had heard a lot of good things and so far it's lived up to the hype. I did get stuck early on in what can only be described as a *FACEPALM* moment on my part, but otherwise I'm cruising through and loving it.
