It’s the Thought that Counts

Someone gave us a little gift bag at Christmas that included a box of Lifesavers. It ended up under some clothes in a pile in the bedroom until a few days ago when it was re-discovered, opened and (almost) eaten. See, they’re supposed to be the old-school hard life savers, not the new gummy type. [...]

Character Creation in Games

I generally enjoy spending a few minutes building my own toons when I play new games these days. The customization options are getting to be ridiculously detailed to the point where you can make your in-game dude (or dudette) a baby-faced tween or a wrinkled old hag that even the best wrinkle creams couldn’t help.

New TV needs New Stand

The wife rolls her eyes when I go moving things around in the living room, but with this new TV I want to get a new stand so I can get rid of this big honking entertainment unit that surrounded the old TV. Good thing I don’t have rheumatoid arthritis or anything cause moving all [...]

TV Finally Arrived

So my new TV finally arrived a few days ago but you must know by now how upset I am that I’ve waited for more than 1.5 months for it. I ordered it on Boxing Day and had to spend hours hunting it down with Future Shop and when they finally made the arrangements they [...]
