Which doesn't have any QTEs, surprisingly enough.

So I'm facing a crisis...I have too many friends. I know this sounds like bragging, but hear me out. I'm trying to plan my birthday dinner at the end of the month. I've been carefully making up a list of my main friends who I want to invite...and I'm at 35 people. Thirty five. Holy cow...

I even cut some people out to get that number. I still have a few that I could probably cut, but I feel bad snubbing people. I've already decided to do two dinners - one on Friday the 27th and a smaller one on Monday the 30th, which is my actual birthday. Still, the list for the Friday dinner is at 30 people. I don't want to split the list into two even groups, as the larger group contains people that mostly know each other in some shape or form, as does the smaller group. Splitting them up would be kind of weird, and I want Monday's event to be much smaller anyway.

I never thought I would be this popular.

FOOL!!! These are not pass or die QTEs.

In fact you could borrow or rent it, play it on easy and make a drinking game of it.

Word of Warning: Don't chug when you lose an arm(s).

Not unless you want an ER trip.

Heh, that was even after cutting the list down. When did I become such a social butterfly?

I came up with a solution. I'm having three birthday dinners. One on Friday the 27th, one on Saturday the 28th with my friends from game night, and a small one on Monday the 30th, which is my actual birthday. A little over the top, but oh well.

I was blasting Last.fm out my windows so I wouldn't go crazy. I hate yard work and today was the mother of all days. Everything I had planned to do before Spring but couldn't because of the stones.

And man, the Florida jungle was working while I slept.

I don't even think I could come up with a list of half a dozen people I'd invite to party.

Then again, I'm a reclusive misanthrope.

I'd invite my 3-4 closest friends and then meet up at a bar with everyone else.

Which would be my 3-4 friends.


Played some Jamestown last night. Awesome game. Got to the last boss, got his health down to where one more second of special attack would kill him and... He got me. Exploded. Womp womp...



Might and Magic games are on sale at GoG.com. I know someone around here is a big fan of those types of 1st person dungeon games.

I saw the Last.fm. Then I saw the BF3 logo, also stating "Kato looking for friends". You can't lie to your stalker

Is there no save function in PC games? Or is your F7 button broke?

That was going to be my reply too. Although EG does like to go to the local watering hole to drink and argue with people.

I'm pretty sure THAT person has them all. In the original boxes and on all digital download services. THAT person recommended the last sale I thought which is when I bought 1-6 pretty cheap.

I am reclusive too. Or I would be if given a choice. If I became rich beyond belief I would hide in my compound for the rest of my days. Like Howard Hughes.

You'd all be invited to party and steal my busts of floppy, fat engorged busts along with other valuables while I got drunk, however.

When I was single sometimes I would come home on a Friday night after work and not leave the apartment all weekend. It's different now as my wife is an extrovert and likes her social time (plus we have kids), but I'm the opposite. I deal with people all day at work, so I like my down time to be more...subtle. And peaceful.

This summer we are renting a camp way up north in Maine for a week. That will be so nice.

It used to be common for me to spend the entire weekend inside as well, but not these days.

Here's a shot of my city:

I'm being good and not harassing you guys about it.

Stop testing my resolve.
