Need a bigger TV for my games

November 4, 2013 // Posted in Friends, Gadgets, Home, Shopping (Tags: , ) |  Comments Off on Need a bigger TV for my games

The new Battlefield game came out for the Playstation and I am hooked on this game. I’ve been happy with my big TV up until now. But the old TV just does not cut it for this new game. I’m going to have to upgrade and get the biggest flat screen high Def TV that my wallet can stand. I was already planning on getting the new Playstation 4 this month when it comes out, but now now I’m thinking I should spend that money on the new TV and just wait another 2 paychecks to get the Playstation.

I was impressed with the new Battlefield and tried my hand at it for a few rounds, trying to figure it out. Very impressed with the graphics. But then I headed over to my buddy TJ’s house and played it with him on his huge flatscreen and I was able to see things that I didn’t even know were part of the game until I saw it on TJ’s TV. That totally convinced me that my old TV needs to be retired and I want a new one.

This weekend I’ll hit all the electronics stores and look at picture quality and brands. Then I’ll check the prices against the local stores. But before I buy it, I’ll check Amazon, too. Last time I bought anything electronic the Amazon price was the best anywhere – even after paying for shipping. So that might be the way to go.

Too Early to be Selling Pumpkins

September 29, 2013 // Posted in Eating Out, Home, Shopping (Tags: ) |  Comments Off on Too Early to be Selling Pumpkins

Had to get to the grocery store today and I was a little pissed off to see a big box of pumpkins sitting out on the damn sidewalk already. Halloween is still a fucking month away and already they are putting out pumpkins. I tell you what – it might be getting a little chilly at night now, but it’s too hot for carving pumpkins this early. If you cut open a pumpkin now and carve that sonofabitch, it’s going to rot before any trick or treaters ever see the damn thing.

If you really must buy a damn pumpkin in September, do me a favor and do not cut into the sonofabitch for at least two more weeks. And keep it someplace cool or it will rot whether you cut into or not. But in my opinion, the last week of September is too fucking early to be selling pumpkins at the grocery stores.

Snow And Ice Brings Out The Crazy Fuckers On The Road

Tonight’s weather forecast calls for the temperatures to drop to the lowest point this year by early morning. We actually have freeze warnings out for entire Metro area. That means that I have to bring in the houseplants and make sure that the antifreeze levels are good in all the vehicles and all that good shit. I still can’t believe that I actually have to wear a winter coat in the morning. That is a sure sign that autumn and anything associated with warmish type weather is long gone. I just hope we don’t get a lot of ice and snow this winter. I can handle the cold (though I would prefer not to) but the precipitation is what makes everything miserable and so fucking dangerous.

We aren’t known for having good drivers in regular situations around here. So when you throw any type of small kink into the mixture, these people around here just totally lose their fucking minds and the roads fill up rather quickly with wrecks along with all types of vehicles that have slid off of the part of the road.that they are supposed to have been on.  So even if there really isn’t much snow and/or ice on the roads I think that playing it safe and cancelling the schools is a good idea. Those big ass yellow school buses are carrying precious cargo that need to be safe from all the crazies that just have to go out in the snow and ice no matter what.

Halloween

September 12, 2012 // Posted in Eating Out, Healthy, Home, Living, Outdoors, People, Thoughts, Travel (Tags: , , , , ) |  Comments Off on Halloween

With Halloween coming up here soon I’ve been thinking about many of the Halloween festivities of my youth. My own memories of Halloween are really of all the great fun, year after year as I was growing up in the suburbs on the east coast. We lived in an established neighborhood and the parents didn’t worry about letting the kids head out to go door to door for the night. We had to eat dinner first – it was always at 6:00 pm sharp. Then we bolted out the door to catch up with our friends and we had to be home before 10. We never had any trouble with other kids or any fucking perverts. It was always a lot of fun back in the day. We weren’t really thrilled with getting an apple put in our trick or treat bags, but at least we were not afraid to eat the damn thing for fear of a razor blade or some other type of shit being hidden in it.

Things have sure changed. There is no fucking way I would allow my kids to go out on their own, that is if I had any kids, which I don’t.  If they went out, I’d be right there along side with them. I worry about perverts but worry more about gangs of teens and even shootings in some parts of town. I’d walk the streets with my kids and carry the flashlight, and I’d stay at the end of the driveway to let them go to the door on their own. But we all would most definitely go out together and stay together the entire time, and if we don’t know who lives in the house we would just walk on by.

 

Shopping for Kitchen Gear

April 27, 2012 // Posted in Gadgets, Home, Living, Shopping (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on Shopping for Kitchen Gear

Okay, it is time for me to do some fucking shopping for my kitchen. When I set up my place, my mom and dad got me lots of stuff, but I never really went out and bought much myself. I have found that I really like to cook and I am in desperate need of stuff to do that. I am going to go buy a bunch of new gadgets as well as pots and pans. I want new pots and pans first though. I also need a small roasting pan so I can make stuff in the oven. I might  even get some corning wear as well. I know that I am going to need some mixing bowls with lids and such. I need some good tupper ware to store food in and so much more.

I have been putting aside money for this for a while now and have save up quite a bit. I didn’t realize just how much until I checked the account I set up for it. Now I can really go hog wild and buy all new stuff. Some of it I can get cheap at Walmart, but others I plan on paying a little more for.
