Apparently, Santa Ana wind will not allow El Niņo to encroach on its territory. It will be 84 degrees today - picture taken yesterday. 90 degrees this weekend.

Super Bowl was playing on our TV because my wife was watching it. I personally find watching other people compete to be a boring waste of time. I cannot influence the outcome.

At the rtsk of outing myself as a complete nerd, isn't that signature quote actually Deanna Troi convincing Mark Twain - as they both strolled along a corridor to a turbolift - that the future isn't so grim? The episode where they go back in time to stop the life-source-stealing aliens? Am I wrong?

Because the fools didn't buy a snow blower!

Even worse ... He llved where it snows! With that in mind, it's dry and in the low to mid 70s here, I think I wasted money getting prepared for the supposed El Niņo.

While strolling along an empty sidewalk, Cutter encounters Henry. "Henry! How's it going man? Long time!" Henry looking perplexed and slightly annoyed, stands back a bit, raises an eyebrow, and bluntly responds, "Who the hell are you?"

A moment of shock! Cutter's face becomes pale and his skin turns clammy and weak. His voice is shaken. He cannot speak. Tears of embarrassment form in his eyes. He experiences a flash of memory. Vividly recalling and re-experiencing (as frequent daydreams) that single, life-changing, conversation in the pub - even though it happened so many years ago. The long time fantasy friendship that followed. The reoccurring rock star dreams and imaginary adventures of bonding. All of it, suddenly shattered, crumbled, and broken. Scattering like ashes into an abyss. Cutter puts his hands in his coat pockets and crouches his head down - wishing this tragic moment never happened. As he continues to stare into the lifeless, cold, and lonely concrete below, he quickly scurries away in humiliation.

Practicing my very amateur writing. Nothing personal against Cutter.

Thanks to El Niņo we had a super cold blast here yesterday. Was only in the mid 50s to 60s.

Not all hope is lost. It's climbjng back up toward the 70s over the next few days. Thumbsup

Was made to take my nephew to see it in the early morning. Fortunately, there were about 10 others in the audience and the theatre has cushioned reclining seats. Almost fell asleep a few times.

All my rainy weather clothes have either Gore-Tex or Ceplex Active. Breatheable clothing is essential. Thumbsup

Guinea Pig Takes Cat's Bed - Cat Wigs Out. Guinea Pig or Honey Badger?

That's a combination of play and "this thing smells nasty, I love it!". Cats are all about smells...


Cat was nervous. Guinea pog was terrified, Person was taunting and laughing. Some people shouldn't own pets. The video should be classified as animal abuse.

Coming off of DOS to Windows was pretty mind blowing at the time. It was like coming off Lynx and BBS' to Netscape, or when we all got our first 3D cards for the first 3D games. Those were all very Neo 'Whoa! I know Kung Fu.' moments.

Yah, but coming from AmigaOS, Windows was quite unimpressive.

Steam cleaners work pretty nicely....

Only if you thoroughly get rid of the debris, dirt, or dust first. Otherwise, you'll be dealing with soppy mud and grime. Better to simply clean-up before and immediately after cooking, eating, etc.

Stay away from that crap. There's nothing in the house that can be cleaned as well, if not better, with DIY home cleaners based on a few simple ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, bleach, and borax. And they're all far cheaper and better for the environment. Vinegar alone is a wonder liquid that does almost everything.

Does your place have that aged-vinegar "old person" smell?

Stop the pathetic discussion of this game.

First with the pathetic financial advice nobody cared about and now forum moderating. Don't like the conversation, here's a hint, don't read it.

Do you really need an explanation? Are you so detached from reality?

Hey you, stop telling me to stop telling people to stop ... Or as we say here, WHATEVER! Moving to California can save you a ton on not having to pay for AC, rakes, high heating bills, and snow shovels - not to mention, the closest space you gain by not needing seasonal clothes.

All in return for a paltry $4000/sqft! JOIN NOW AND GET AN EXTRA 2 SQUARE FEET TOTALLY FREE!

Also, have fun not having water. Or when you do have water, having to dig your car out from under the mud that came with it. Thumbsup



Anyway, back on topic, it's a fun game. The controls could use some work, and there really should be a bit more explanation of how things work (for example, I figured I could just MAKE a dog house for Dogmeat, and so I scavenged all the dog houses I found in Sanctuary. And, of course, even though my guy can make a nuclear freaking generator with some screws and duct tape, and even though I just made a 3 story mansion that encompasses half of Sanctuary, a simple dog house is beyond him, so Dogmeat has no place to stay...)

Voice acting is fine (much improved over previous games, and it has Garrus. GARRUS!!!), the writing actually picks up pretty decently later, the shooting is much, much, much improved.

Really the big qualms that I think are legit is that it really looks waaaaay too much like FO3 (which I'd already worried about myself), and that the graphics really aren't that great (with characters/faces and monsters being flat-out terrible.)

None of these really distract from how much fun it is, imo.

Well, I actually need to live here. I have horrible asthma and living near the ocean is the only thing that seems to alleviate it. Otherwise, there's a strong chance I'd be looking into buying land in the middle of nowhere and have lots of space. I envy people that can do that... Here is an article on the topic, if you're curious.

I played Fallout 3 for awhile .. got pretty far then I ran into a game ending bug. It destroyed my progress. It was crazy. I was super frustrated. I don't know how it happened. I read others had the same problem. So I've learned my lesson: Purchase games when there is a final patch (or fan-made patch) that fixes almost everything. Yah, and I paid full price for it, like an idiot. Never again ...

Yes, because it's not as if there was a huge stock market crash in 1999, or in 2008, and it's not as if the housing market has already collapsed once.

SQUIRREL ALL YOUR MONEY AWAY FOR THE FUTURE!
(then hope you don't get hit by a bus.)

You missed the most important money-saving tip of all, btw: Move to California!

Stop telling people how to spend their money. Thumbsup

Anyhow, the point is that most games are fairly buggy upon first release and much more expensive. Why pay to be a tester? Just wait for a polished and cheaper version in a few months or a year.
