Out of the Blue

Look at that: Another year, another birthday for me, as much as I hate being predictable. One thing you learn about being born on this date is that it's the day before JFK's assassination, as it is always in the news around now. The other thing you learn is that the 22nd is the earliest day that can be Thanksgiving in the U.S., and this is one of those years. This isn't a big problem, and it certainly wasn't like a kid born near Christmas as I grew up, but it does mean that my celebration today will include such choice moments as cleaning bathrooms and bathing doggies to prepare for company tomorrow.

Happy B-day Blue!

I'm getting excited. I didn't think that was possible for this franchise anymore.


Pretty much me, exactly. I got chills when I read that last night. SW could be awesome now that it's out of george's mitts...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BLUE!!!! Party

I need to write down when your birthday is for now on...I keep forgetting. Hell, I'd rather remember yours than mine. I have a tendency to get arrested, beat up, or crashed into on mine...for some reason, usually through no fault of my own...usually...

Here's hoping yours is a little less...'uneventful'...

Happy birthday Blue!

In other news, the Steam autumn sale is on, as predicted yesterday. Annoyed to see Civ G&K 10 cheaper than I paid a week ago! On the upside, picked up XCom for 10 off so...

Beware not everything seems to be working right - if I add to basket direct from the sale page I get the new price, if I go to the game's page however it's at the old price. Double-check before you buy!

Happy birthday, Blue! Have a great day and enjoy life.  
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Btw, you can call Lucas whatever you want, but the man IS clever. Star Wars has been in the news almost constantly after he sold the whole shebang to Disney.

Considering that it was almost dead-and-buried, that's a pretty good upswing in interest.
