thanks for all the birthday wishes! i had a great one. turns out that the casinos here JUST raised the minimum age to 21, however, so i never did that. they did it because they all serve alcohol now or something. it's really weird to think that i'm now old enough to do like ANYTHING yet i'm still banned from places because there's budweiser around, btw.
SO i didn't do anything special (never do, really), just ordered some pizza and watched the dana carvey show. i am totally not complaining about that, though, because that was awesome. i always feel weird telling everyone what i get as gifts for some reason, so uhhh i'll just mention a few things: i got left 4 dead, which is very fun and i've been playing a lot of it lately. i also got dead rising, which i've been horribly curious about ever since it came out, so i'm very excited about that. got professor layton and the diabolical box, and iiiii JUST started chapter three, i think (twitter-followers are already well aware that i have this, i'm sure). also got san andreas, which is kinda funny since neutraltwin
and i were just talking about that, haha. and... OH
I HAVE A QUESTION
IS SAINTS ROW 1 ANY GOOD? i asked for saints row 2 and got the first one instead, and i'm trying to decide whether i ought to exchange it. IF 2 IS REALLY AMAZING COMPARED TO 1 THEN I WILL
AND OF COURSE i got this
amazing picture from tigerboat
, which contains my four favorite Ls in the ~whole world~. i was very thrilled to get this. TIGER KNOWS ME TOO WELL
and, uh, the rest is just books and a pre-order for scribblenauts and stuff. haha, before i turned 18 i groaned in pain over how old it was, but now, whatever. as soon as it hit midnight i was already used to it somehow. NOW I'M GROANING IN PAIN OVER THE THOUGHT OF TURNING 20 IN A COUPLE OF YEARS
in other news, john got robbed. hahahaha what a dramatic change of mood-- but no, he just came home last night and found the back door kicked in and his ps3, two macbooks, and 52" tv were all gone. right now the suspects are these teenagers who knocked on the door beforehand asking for "carlos" and generally acting strange. whoever it is, i'm hoping the police will catch them, since from what i hear they sound pretty sloppy and stupid.
john has insurance, thankfully, but also has a $1000 deductible. i dunno, the whole thing sucks and it happened at a shitty time, since john is working a lower-paying job and is really strapped for cash and currently trying to sell his house. he doesn't need people stealing his crap and wrecking his home on top of everything else. i'm not worried that he won't get things back together--he always bounces back pretty well--but man, his whole situation right now just bites.
uhhh i had more things i wanted to talk about but i'm tired( COMMENT AND I'LL PICK 6 OF YOUR ICONS AND MAKE YOU TALK ABOUT THEM BLAH BLAH )
man i wanna go to that david sedaris thing i mentioned but it turns out it's like $80 per ticket fffff
