Out of the Blue

I'm not sure what this weekend will be like around here, it seems MrsBlue will be heading off to California early Monday morning to get the chance to see the offices where her job is moving to help us make our decision over moving. We'll be attempting to do some organizing in the meantime, but we're in an uncomfortably in-between state of not being set on a plan yet, even though the deadline for a decision nears. Gotta love interdependent decisions to complicate things.

Oh, and just remember: no matter what happens you'll have thousands of complete strangers (some of them with borderline stalker tendencies) who still love you!



nin, does your van have enough gas to get all the way out to California? Maybe we should take up a collection.

great, nin has a van. but does it have shag carpet and lava lamps inside?


I call it The Love Shack.


Check your wishlists on Steam. Over 100 titles on sale.

Maybe they noticed steam logins have been down drastically since Tuesday or so?

It is not always summer down here! It does rain, get cold, etc. I hope Blue, his wife, and his dogs can handle the crazy heat waves (100+F degrees), smog, heavy traffics, etc.

It's not as if they don't have DOOM on smartphones and tablets and Xboxes and basically everywhere else nowadays. And there are shooters besides Call of Duty. I get the impression this guy must hate Half Life (linear, few if any secrets, lots of checkpoints).

Check your wishlists on Steam. Over 100 titles on sale. Not sure if the Serious Same package gives you the extra copies as gifts...but the whole dang thing is only 21.00!!!! That is a ton of Sam! I would get it if I could gift the stuff I have already....

I got the same coupon. But I heard that the game itself was pretty lackluster.

Btw, I seem to have somehow gotten a coupon for King Arthur II for 50% off in Steam. If someone wants it, let me know. (shoot me a message in Steam or something.)

Well, she couldn't have picked nicer weather. It will probably be awhile before it begins to get hot here.

Question is will it even turn over? It's been sitting outside Blue's House since he moved from the Tower.

I think these sorts of things are handled much more easily if you approach them the point of view that it's the opportunity for a great new adventure. If you pass on it, no big whoop. If you go for it, it should be a great deal like the Love Boat.

And nin, thanks man, now I've had Richard Cheese's version of Down With the Sickness stuck in my head for days now.


His shit is catchy as hell.

And I expect nothing less than a seamless, transparent transition from this site's perspective. After all, why should I be inconvenienced by your life-altering circumstance? Now really, is that too much to ask?

Best of luck Blue, sounds like some life changing decisions/times are coming up. Those are never easy.
