    Lunch? Smoked turkey and ham on pretzel bread, a salad and veggie soup

    LOL! TM - I was pushing almost 3 bills about 3 months ago. Three months of dieting is no fun. Still sort of miss throwing the SI around.... well actually no I don't.

    CB- Thanks for the compliment on the FH. Wish I had that solid two-hander. BTW- I think newegg finally got me to buy BO2 - Get 12 months of XBL for $30 if you buy BO2 - I would prob buy both anyway soo might as well go for it and only hope the game doesn't gather dust.

    How much is newegg selling BO2 for? Toys r us has a "2 for," deal. if you are in, I'll go in too. even though i won't be playing till Blacks Ops 3 comes out. Toys R Us has 2 copies of BO2 for $90 + tax. Then it'll be $45 each. Even has Nuketown 2025 Map as a dlc bonus. But i can't imagine playing BO2 w/o Nuketown.

    http://www.slickdeals.net/permadeal...-with-nuketown-2025-bonus-map-xbox-360-or-ps3

    if ur interested, just email me. I am stacked at work and can pick it up today after work. I can meet up at lunch morrow for pickup. or if you like to buy and pickup at ToysRUs, I can do pick up during lunch morrow.

    CB, feeding my Xbox and Tennis addiction. LOL! Problem is I need a XBL Gold membership - mine expires Nov. 19. Guess cost wise it's a push.

    just thought I'd open this up, but looks like Downs_Chris and I will be hitting at Lake Newport in Reston today @ 4:30. Anyone up for joining? You can all marvel at how big of a sandbagger Downs_Chris is...

    Dark, Gloomy, and Cold. That is what today is like.

    So what's for lunch folks? Debating whether to eat leftovers (but broke from the joint venture investment with wookie) or get cafe food.

    CB good call. Played from Blops 2 last night. MP is pretty good. Of course I managed to stay up until 3am and got a few games in between middle of the night feedings.

    SMGs are the way to go right now IMHO. Like the pick 10 system too. LEss grenade spam IMHO.

    Lucky Bum! I was cleaning barf last night. I tried the "Let the baby cry to sleep," exercise despite protest from my better half. Let's just say, my best investment so far in baby equipment is a vinyl matress cover. Changed the sheets, wiped the crib, etc etc. Never listen to your doctor, I bet I have negative rep pts with my daughter now.

    I'm not a father, nor have I played one on tv. Is it not common to let your child cry and learn to self soothe? Though barfing doesn't sound very soothing.

    Sup, that's the theory, but one I've never tested. Mrs. Wookie can't stand crying.

    CB - Kids barf anyway, crying or not crying so it's all in the job description. ;)

    Happy thought, at least it wasn't poo. Dad always gets the clean the car seat after a diaper blow out - LOL!

    FWIW- might want to try the 5 min, 10 min, 15 min thing.

    Taco Bar is a must visit:
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/taco-bar-gaithersburg-2

    Peruvian Chicken:
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/sardis-gaithersburg

    Chinese (Northern Style) Be sure you have a bathroom close by because it's &*^$#^& SPICY! But it's REALLY good. Highly recommend the "Water Cooked Beef" Also, Stir Fried Spicy Garlic Kidney is highly recommended.
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/peking-palace-germantown

    There's a freshly made Noodle Soup place (store made noodle soup #12) Place is called Han Kook. Its the last food court stand in the corner. Also highly recommend the #2 Fake Bonchon Chicken but it's kinda pricy $13 for around 18 wings. But its really good.
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/lotte-plaza-germantown

    Rockville has szechuan pavilion (now called sichuan jin river bcz chef brought the place). Strongly recommend the Braised Pork Belly with Taro, Stir fried kidney, and stir fried shredded pork with pressed bean curd
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/sichuan-jin-river-rockville#query:szechuan pavilion


    Let me know if you want more recommendations.

    It's right next to the 270 exit. So it's a quick in and out place. Be sure to visit the condiment bar there. Their pickled red onion and homemade hot sauce is good. Also, be sure to ask if they have beef tongue taco. They don't have all the time but it's quite good when they have it. Also get the pastor tacos.
    When you walk in, you see a open kitchen with workers constantly cutting up entire carasses always make my mouth water. =)

    Sap -
    1 - Cava off Shady Grove in G-burg. Great Greek mezze.
    2 - Curry Place in G-town. Good and cheap Indian food.
    3 - Sabai Sabai Thai in G-town. Good Thai place.

    CB -
    1 - Don't let a little puke deter you.
    2 - Don't let your baby beat you in a barfy game of chicken.
    3 - Kids are easily replaced. Let them know early and often that they are there for you and you can always make more.

    Wookie -
    1 - Guildwars 2.
    2 - Tour Bite kicks major azz. That is all.

    Dats -
    1 - I'm getting back $210 from Kia because they overestimated MPG claims.

    TM - I'm only getting back around 30 bucks cuz I've ba dangdriven 2k miles. Dang. I was hoping they wouldn't base it on actual mileage and just assume everyone drove 15k or more a year.

    tires and noodle. I guess businesses need to diversify nowadays. I hope the don't use the same raw materials.

    haha. I think I have made much in this investment by my big belly. :)
