Must not be Madden, I just assume Madden Tom Brady threw the ball directly behind himself on the one yard line with a chance to win the Super Bowl because he had video game gambling debts.

I have laughed away my rage with respect to sports video game betrayals. I have literally had my ENTIRE TEAM betray me and let the other team win the game.

I was the other team, I NEVER used established quarterbacks in Madden. :-)

Ah, yes, life in my neck of the woods!

Apparently, in Palo Alto, just down the road, making "only" $150,000 a year now qualifies you for housing assistance.

Reminds me of my teaching days when I finally came to the realization that on a teacher's salary in the Bay Area I could never afford to own a home, have kids, or otherwise live.

It does make you wonder who pays these ludicrous prices for these shoebox homes... Zillow says my house is now worth over $1 million. To whom? What psychotic person would pay over $1 million for a 1000-square-foot house with no insulation, bad wiring, a broken foundation, and a leaky roof?

And the sad, sad answer is, "Hundreds of people."

*SIGH*

Rant over...

Got a text from my friend working snow. He said they had him out salting the rain at 5 this morning, I suggested he throw it in the air to save time. :-)

Further, it's not like we're running out of land.

Most calculations show that the entirety of humanity currently could fit in Texas with room to breathe at current average metropolitan standards.

Easter can't come fast enough, every morning this week about 6 or so, Tiny T-Rex comes stomping out of his room, not even awake. He looks out the window, asks if the Easter bunny showed up, when I say "no" he swears "g~!~+#n it" under his breath as he stomps back to bed for another hour to dream of a denim jeans wearing Easter bunny laying eggs in the garden.

Kids have some pretty f%@*ed up dreams.

New Lego set might giveaway part of next Avengers movie. It's the Avengers fighting Thanos and some goons in space.

Um, Marvel already pretty much said they're building up to the Infinity Gauntlet saga, so that's not so much a giveaway as a reinforcement.

The hard part will be shoehorning Surfer in there, since he's only appeared in the abysmal F4 pt 2, and he's integral to the plot, as is Adam Warlock, who never even appeared so far.

I didn't read Marvel comics as a kid, so it's all new to me, which is probably a good thing. :-)

Because she's almost 12 Pea Bear decided she shouldn't have to go to the 24 hour grocery store, and she got Tiny T-Rex to go along with their seditious whining.

So I say, "hey kids, I'll make you a deal" they lean in, excited to hear what possible out I'm ready to throw them. "The more you complain, the slower I'll walk". Pea Bear, dejected says "that's not a very good deal" "Oh, I never said it would be a good deal"

I'm convinced Impus Minor doesn't believe I know he's buying ice cream whenever he "goes to the store for us".

NH: "Uh, oh. We're out of hamburger buns!"
IM: "I'll go!"
NH: "OK. Bring me the receipt."
IM: "OK."
...
NH: "Wow! Those were some expensive buns!"
IM: "Yeah, I know."
NH: "Sure you didn't buy anything else?"
IM: "No."

Great when the receipt is right in your hand...

EDIT: And yes, he's very careful to listen to my wording and answer correctly. It's fun to "test" him by giving him convoluted questions such as, "Are you sure you didn't do xxx?" only to have him respond, "No!"

New PC is finally 'ready', although since no major change is complete without some sort of putzitude on my part, I neglected to buy a USB to USB cable and had to spend futtering ages reinstalling everything. It still looks weird, but anything would after a decade or more using Vista.

Rapiers are 30% off this weekend, too.

You still can't afford it.

Getting ice cream while doing groceries is a world-wide applicable child's privilage, not "buying anything else" so technically he is right.

Not in my experience. Numerous families in my hometown used "buying something extra when I sent you to the store and said 'buy x, y, and z' and didn't authorize buying anything else" as an excellent example of "just because I specifically didn't say 'don't do this' does not make it alright/allowed". I've also heard the exact same example used in several church sermons as an object lesson on authority.

If I were the governor of Missouri and I needed tourism, I would change the state motto to "Missouri loves company."

FaWtL: for when something I think of is worthy of tweeting, but I need an audience of more than 15 people.

Hey, I laughed for like five minutes when I thought of that pun.

You should've seen last week, when I named my fell caller (a trollkin bard like class that shouts at their enemies as an attack) Collins...so he could be Fell Collins. I had so many Phil Collins puns.

I took a rank of seduction so he could be an Easy Lover.

Obviously, when night came, I could feel it Callin In the Air Tonight.

When it came time to hit the road. I strut my stuff. Why? Because I can't dance, and I can't talk, the only thing about me is the way that I walk.

...seriously I fired out a half dozen of these in succession to an audience that doesn't like puns. Such a waste.

She had the shopping cart, we had sections of her list, we'd grab stuff and return to the general and the shopping cart, then off we go again.

No, neither of you are Cylons. Unlike Cylons, you seem to actually have a plan. ;)

My wife has never actually watched Battlestar Galactica. I admittedly have only seen first six episodes or so, it's a pretty good show. Alas I got distracted by the shiny new second season of Fargo on ITunes and she got me a card for it, and then there's the last four episodes of new X-Files that expires on Hulu on Sunday...

I love mixing my sci-fi references at holidays, to annoy my nerd family, and distract them from their endless political discussions. So, it's good to have a better working knowledge of source material, rather then just going by what I learned from Robot Chicken.

Which does have it's own advantages. :-)
