Crash Bash – Part 1

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

So last night Canem and I resumed our “Adventure” game of Crash Bash which is one of the Crash Bandicoot games. We hadn’t played it in like a year because we got stuck. So we play this tournament game of “Ballistix” which is pong-like and I’m thinking, “Hey, Canem is a lot better at these games now so maybe we will win.” Sure enough right out the shoot we crushed them. We are high fiving and laughing it up thinking we conquered the level when round two starts up. “Round 2?” Turns out you have to beat them three times to win the level. Anyway, we got smoked three games straight. Don’t you hate it when it turns out to be first one to three.

Captain Shazam

There is nothing more confusing in the super hero world than Captain Marvel. Is his name Captain Marvel or is it Shazam? Discuss.

Lights on the house

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

So the other day I put up the “Holiday” lights. I went way up the ladder to put them at the top of the garage. I’m up there, things are cool, and suddenly I can’t do it. I couldn’t go any higher on the ladder. My heart was racing and all that fun stuff. So I kind of looped it at the top instead of having it go to the point. So now I wonder if people look at the house and think, “Oh, how creative” or if they think “Oh, what a chicken sh*t.”

First snow

Uh oh. First snow. Everyone forget how to drive.

Surprise Rain

Monday, November 21st, 2005

A lot of people in the neighborhood have their Christmas lights up already. When I say a lot its relative of course because I mean a lot for this time of year being prior to Thanksgiving. Whatever. Anyway, yesterday I was going to put up the lights as soon as I got home but when I stepped outside of the office, it was raining. It wasn’t supposed to rain and I didn’t know it was raining prior to that moment. I hate that. Surprise rain.

Instead of putting the lights up I took Canem to the doctor which was an overall good time had by all.

My default answer to any question is 12. A few days ago I discussed this with someone who it turns out has a default answer as well which is 24. While her number is twice as much as mine, mine is closer to 1. See how that works?

We are sheep

Saturday, November 19th, 2005

Yesterday I learned that we are all sheep. We went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and about a minute into the movie, not even a minute, like 5 seconds, the fire alarm goes off in the theatre. It was this big flashing light and annoying buzzing sound. So of course we should leave the theatre right? Do we? No. We all just sit there and watch the movie, some of us yelling for them to turn off that stupid alarm. Sure, the building may be turning into a raging inferno but it’s opening night of Harry Potter and we aren’t leaving. So we all sit there when one of the theatre workers runs in and yells “We need everyone to exit the theatre NOW!!!” So then we get up and leave. Canca loses her purse in the darkness, the kids are upset, all I can think about is saving our drinks (lame). Seriously, its all about the chaos. The movie is still playing so everyone takes their time getting out because they want to see as much of the movie as possible. When we finally get outside, people in the next theatre are already going back in. So we go back in and, this really ticks me off, people don’t go back to the seats they had before the alarm. They go for the prime seats in the middle of the theatre. That’s a bunch of crap. Then, to make it even more exciting, we sit through 5-10 minutes of commercials and then they turn the movie back and they never turned it off! So we missed like the first 20 minutes of the movie. So we are all sheep and we missed the first part of the movie. The silver lining… they gave us passes. But I still can’t believe how long we just sat there assuming the fire alarm was anything more than an annoyance.

By the way, the whole thing was caused by popcorn that caught fire.
