Really?  Not one discussion about the show?  What happened to all the geeks and nerds? Well, that's just great.  Continue

Smack a kid, save your life.

From Facebook:
    I have to laugh at people who are against spanking. My parents sometimes smacked me when I was naughty.. . I didn't hate them.. I didn't have trust issues with them because of it... I didn't fear them... But I darn sure respected them! And I learned what my boundaries were, and knew what would happen if I broke them. I wasn't abused, I was…

Motorcycles made me recall Northern Exposure.

Posted on August 20, 2011 at 6:06pm 0 Comments

Thinking about motorcycles reminded me of the Northern Exposure episode where the scary bikers come to town and we find out that they are all professionals with families as they have one member that can't do the ride b/c his kid has a dental appointment and they all talk about the changes.  It was the ThirtySomething-like episode.

This is the issue I'm beginning to have with game companies: they are forgetting the FUN.

 

As you see in the Industry Gamers interview, their management is focused on killing the competition instead of making the killing in their games fun.  So it seems.

 

Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 both look EXTREMELY fun, from what…

Jehovah's Witness could have gotten shot today.

Posted on May 30, 2011 at 1:28pm 10 Comments

Some woman stopped her car next to me while I was waiting for the bus after walking Emily to work. I almost pulled my weapon and drew down on her. Foolish lady. She was quite nice, offering me some Jehovah's witness pamphlet. I politely declined and she politely accepted my refusal. Don't pull your car over next to someone if it's not on fire, it's not kosher to your health and well-being.

Thank you!  You are so right, and I appreciate your wisdom.  I will do well after I have my masters under my belt.  No more anxiety.  There is such a huge need.  Our children continue to suffer in public education!  Blessings, African.  Peace.

you mean the 2009 Star Trek movie?  I LOVED it!  I was surprised.  I like all of the movies in some aspect.  The Undiscovered Country and The Final Frontier had the most funny character interactions, based on their personalities.  LOVED that part of those movies.

 

--- I thought the 2009 Star Trek was entertaining, but okay, but I meant my favor is the 1982 Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. I absolutely love!

 

Why?  What's the conflict? 

 

--- the conflict comes from loving/liking the movies and having a love hate for the series!! LOL! Next Generation was too much of a soap opera to me, but I would watch every now and then b/cs of Brent Spiner ( I love me some Commander Data!! lol) Star Trek Enterprise just didn't capture me at all. Now Deep Space Nine & Voyager were my favorites!! couldn't miss them! Especially Deep Space, I had to have my Captain Sisko, Odo and Quark fixes, now that I think about it, I need to get them on DVD! lol!

 

Let's write our own t.v. show.  lol

 

--- lol!! maybe we should! I'm pretty sure we could come up with some dope shit! We need some black Sci-Fi!!

 

it's right here beside me.  I pick it up still, not as often as I should, I think about picking it up more than I do!  lol  helps to have a practise partner your level to keep you motivated.  I found some songs to work with  that are waiting for me to keep working on them.  lol  So lazy I am!

 

---LOL!! have you looked into find a practice partner??
