Weekend Highlights  

  • I determined that my sausage will always be burned at BD's. Oddly enough, this doesn't bother me.

  • I was introduced to a new gin by feren. We got along well.

  • It was demonstrated that the XBox is actually quite a fun little console.

  • While I can definitely see the complaints the P-A folk had with Halo, I rather enjoyed multiplayering it.

  • In stark contrast to my usual multiplayer performance in first-person shooters (namely, "Loading, Please Wait"), I actually seemed to have a knack for Halo multiplayer under certain conditions.

  • The above conditions may require gin, recent viewing of the movie Predator, or some combination of the two.

  • Monte Cristo sandwiches still destroy my stomach. I still eat them.

  • Some parents out there still shush or remove their children when they start screaming/hooting/crying in a movie theatre. I thought that was a lost art.

  • enveri can throw together a really amazing pencil drawing in a disturbingly short time

You're ever out in Chicago, we'll try to drag you to the one we go to! enveri, feren and I are there pretty much every week, they know us by sight now :)

I enjoyed Halo on the PC. It's actually better multiplayer than single. The Xbox version, or rather the Xbox itself, I have a certain philosophical opposition to.

Namely the requirement that I must somehow find a way to manipulate a controller the size of a salad plate with my tiny elflike hands.

They've essentially ditched the flying saucer for more managable control strategies...
The PC version, inexplicably, doesn't have coop play which drives me RIGHT up a wall. It's a blast, I swear.

We should get together at MFF and go Halo crazy. Mmmmm, Haaaaalooooo...

:)

I'm trying extremely hard to be there. Dobbs knows I need the vacation.

What's a Monte Cristo sandwich?

French Toast with ham and cheese in the middle. Sometimes Bacon.

You lose a minor artery with each one you eat.

And if you get one at Bennigan's, they follow it up by deep-frying the whole thing, and dusting it with powdered sugar. I always get 2-3 meals out of a single sandwich when I order one ;)

"It was demonstrated that the XBox is actually quite a fun little console."

The fun part I can see, but where did you get the little from??

This sounds like a personal problem.

1) That is the best, most hysterical icon ever. Where's it from? (And if you answer 'its mother,' I will... do something. I don't know what.)

2) Wow. Now if only they'd do that when they scream during church...

3) Genet is rather nifty that way, ain't she?

1) From the British comedy Father Ted! (And yes, from its mother ;)) The character pictured is Father Jack, the elderly, surly priest best known for his requests for more drink (warning, crude sound file linked).

2) Or at least be struck down by lightning!

3) A-yep :)
