    Finally got power back this morning after losing it Monday at 7pm. Taking the dog out in the storm was a lot of fun too.

    I was also certain my wife was going to go into labor at the height of the storm and I would end up delivering the baby using my iPhone and a Swiss Army knife.

    Big pharma is big business. Ever notice all the drug related swag that's in your doc's office?

    On another topic, any suggestions for deal alert sites? Trying to track down an Xbox Live membership on the cheap. Missed the $30 deals a few days ago.

    Master blaster from the movie thunderdome (mad max) would still be a good idea.

    yeah i missed the deal too. it's that $15 rebate deal, right? Look on the bay. They sell the ones that has no card, they just send u the codes.

    i just cracked open the hatch to my bomb shelter this morning. looks like we've all survived mostly intact. too bad too because i was ready to start repopulating the earth in my image with whatever womenz were left.

    lunch is a jelly donut and coffee.

    IIRC- tiger direct had them for about $30 mid October, but I missed the deal. Amazon is currently at $48 - not too bad but not great since I got my last two at $35.

    Wonder how they can sell just the codes for cheap on the bay? Those deals above the board?

    wookie -- i've bought those codes on the bay before. and it worked for the entire year. your mileage my vary.

    i'm playing the funk out of xcom enemy unknown. it brings back so many great memories of when i had no life but life was good.

    I got scanned once on **** with chic live codes but the 2nd time it worked. Just make sure your seller has sold thousands of them. My scanner sold about 100 of them before scanning about 500 people.

    I pre-ordered Halo 4 but between Halo, Black Ops, and Borderlands, there are way too many FPS games to play.

    Once I get tired of the little kids talking **** to me on Halo I'll buy Black Ops and play that. If you look at my rep on Xbox it's terrible, everyone reports me for cheating because I'm dominating them.

    I've learned to just put my mic on party chat and talk to my drunk brother the whole time I am playing.

    Hey Sap: Just sent u an email. Sorry got your msg late. Free till 1:30pm. Too late to hit?

    @zap: I have plenty of natural insulation unlike the zapster. Although I have to admit, I can't play below mid 40's. But it's lower 50's right now. =) I am just a paper tiger.

    LOL!

    For the car nuts on the board: http://www.insideline.com/features/top-10-cars-of-the-2012-sema-show.html

    That Mach 40 looks sweet, I'll take that Focus ST Cosworth as a daily driver, and there's a nice modified 1966 Bronco.

    Hoping MDX or bust this weekend. The old civic is gone... *tear*

    I have too many kids an not enough time. ;)

    Still temped to pre-order BO2 to get the new Nuke town map.

    On the fence will Hao 4 - it's getting good reviews, but I only played Reach, and while the single player was good, the multiplayer was so-so. Heard the Halo domination mode was good tho.

    Prob get the Aftermath expansion for BF3 and stick with that for a while.

    My Bother is saying that Dishonored is really good, but over looked.

    JRK - One thing I love about BF3 is no little kids up in my ear and you can't hear people who are not in your 4 man squad. No dudes who think they are DJ's playing some stupid song that's distorted by their mic in the lobby.

    Hmmmm.... Maybe I might give it a shot. Let me know if you can recommend they guys who sold working codes.

    TM - the xcom demo was great. I gots no time for an involved game that requires time and strategy though. Heard multiplay games are intense.

    Dats - can you recommend the seller who sold the good stuff?

    MDX is a good drive, but you can't whip a SUV around like a civic. Looking forward to bluetooth connect to the phone plus Pandora/Spotify though...

    i looked for my seller... he still had all positive reviews but he is no longer a registered user.
    i think they might steal 1000 xbox live cards and sell them on the bay and then leave... dunno

    his username was: popszzz101 | Feedback Score Of 1027 | 99.9%

    i bought it for 42.99. wanted under 40.. but i was in a hurry
    the one i bought for under 40 and supposedly came with 400 xbox points
    or something was a scam. fark

    if you can wait a few days for shipping this one from uk seems legit:

    Sigh, don't really want to pay 242 bucks for 2 IG speeds. Can't evidence if I should do it. I was hoping for 220.

    Yall see themz koreans lied on the mpgs? I knew it wasn't anywhere close to 34mpg... I usually get 20! I had read about it before buying so not surprised so ill be glad to receive my check from them every year!

    got another hospital bill. fark, kid is costing me a KIA!

    wasn't too bad as soon as we warmed up,I say around mid 50's.. was pretty windy.
    but really enjoyed playing at ft mcnair. I almost felt like pulling out my COD Black Ops Triple Prestige Card and challenge anyone on base to a match.

    well, i bought the ig speeds.
    mainly so if auzzie dares to challenge the reigning king of twmac (due to defaults and 10minute challenge windows) ... i have more than one weapon in my bag to battle him.

    maybe i should get some aerostorms and change my name to Jerzy.. and grow 8 more inches. (thats what she said....WOOOOOOOO)

    i wonder how much the checks from kia are going to be... should be around $350 for the kia soul but that means it will end up being 20bucks so i won't get my hopes up.
    as long as the car's accelerator cable doesn't snap and hook onto the engine cover like my krappy ford did... ill be happy!

    going on a trip this weekend with baby and dog. with all of the gear... not enough room. i should have bought a 2013 santa fe. guess we can strap the dog on top like mitt!

    you got a 550 HP and i got a 277 HP. Since your gas mileage isn't 50% less than mines, i say ur muscle car definitely is more energy efficient than mines. =)

    Just strung my NYC up with Hexy Fiber/ RIP. Both 17g's. RIP strings up really tight for the tension. Anyone has the same feeling? Also, i think whoever invented RIP must of had a grudge with racquet stringers. Since it tangles so easily, it took me an extra 10 minutes to string the stick up.

    Just pokin' my head in for a few quiet minutes before the chaos that is Election Day starts up.

    Had the opportunity to hit some (fairly serious) singles today but got the extra benefit of being on the court next to a 4.5+/5.0 pair goin' at in singles too. Man! Or Woman (since it was gals)! They were hitting the bejeezus outa the ball and keepin' it in play. Massive amounts of spin -- top and slice -- and incredible athleticism to get to balls sprayed all over the court.

    But just when we'd get lulled into watching a point, one might make a silly error...that us lowly 3.5/4.0s make. And they'd laugh about it too. I'll never have their skill level but I sure would like to improve enough to hit with them some time....even if just for some doubles fun.

    Hope all are well, can find some court time...and get yo-selfs out to vote tomorrow. :p
