Rock'n Roll

Watch this dammit! It is my lazy ass way of making up for a weeks worth of posts not posted. Also, it's funny and has catchy music. Love that intro.

The story so far...

Actually, this story takes place last weekend. I was going to write a post on Monday, but just got lazy. So last Saturday I did pretty much nothing, but later that night in celebration of Valentine's Day I watched the 2001 "slasher" flick Valentine. It sucked. I had wanted to watch it ever since it was released just for Buffy/Angel's David Boreanaz and to see Denise Richards get killed. It was directed by the same guy who did Urban Legend which wasn't bad, but he screwed this one up. It's not scary, there is no build up to the death scenes and the deaths themselves are so boring. Getting an axe in the back is far from original. If you wanted to see this one, then skip it.

Sunday was Valentine's Day/Chinese New Year and what better way to celebrate it then killing stuff. Army of Two: The 40th Day finally came down in price, so I picked it up. It's a better game than the original in all aspects. One frustrating thing about the first one was the hit detection where you could empty a clip into a guy and not drop him, but now you actually hit what you aim at. You can also make positive and negative morality choices like one scene this little kid is helping out through a blown up hospital and you come under enemy fire. You can either tell the kid to stay in cover or ask him to run out and grab a sniper rifle for you. Cody told him to run out and grab the gun which he did and then started jumping up and down and then he got smoked. Sorry kid. That turned out to be an extremely negative morality choice. You can also save hostages if you feel like it. We went the "bad" route and chose negative morality choices for the entire game. Like what did those guys ever do for us?

Monday in Alberta was Family Day, so it was a civic holiday. Cody wanted to go eat pancakes and somebody told him The Belmont in Marda Loop makes good pancakes, so off we went. We drove there only to find a line going outside the door onto the street. The Belmont is some kinda hipster type place so it was packed. Cody then drove back to Westhills to the Humpty's there which also had a huge a line up. With one last chance at pancakes he drove all the way over to C.O.P. to a Denny's which was also packed. I guess being a holiday everybody wants to go eat out. We ended up eating Wendy's and it was totally disappointing. Next time I'll just get the Eggo style pancakes that go in the toaster.

It's a rarity that I ever get two days off in a row and usually those two days are never on a weekend. Turns out I asked for those days off because I have BIG plans. Big plans for me is going to the flea market. I'll let you know if I find anything good and I'll try not to wait until next weekend to do it.

Beards don't help Canada!

Cookies help Canada?? Tonight was the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, but I'm sure you already knew that. I think the Olympics are still a "go" despite warm weather and a lack of snow in Vancouver. I saw on TV they were expecting a bunch of rain this weekend.

I'm sure you all are catching the Olympic fever and running around with your t-shirts, red mittens, and Exel gum, but don't forget your Pillsbury cookies. The cookies have chocolatey and maple leaf candy chips, are ready to cook and called "Bring on the Gold". If you know me, then you know I'm usually up for cookies, unless they have raisins in them.

I usually buy these ready to cook Pillsbury cookies once in a while and I don't know why I keep buying them because I always end up screwing them up. How can I possibly screw up cooking these? Here is a tip, don't play video games while you are waiting for your cookies. They are only supposed to be in the oven for about 10 minutes. I don't actually have a timer or anything, so I sort of lost track of time while I was playingBattlefied: Bad Company 2 multiplayer demo, so they ended up a little overcooked. I had to make two batches and while the first batch turned out okay, the second batch was a lot darker and could probably chip a tooth if you were careful. It wasn't all bad because I did kill three guys and a M-COMM station with a single RPG rocket.

The burned cookies are on the bottom.

Since the first batch of cookies turned out okay I ended up just eating those because I wanted to keep all my teeth. I was disappointed by the candy maple leaf candy chips because once they are cooked you can't even tell they are maples leafs at all. They are just red and white lumps in the cookies. What Pillsbury should've done is made ready to cook sugar cookies with a maple leaf on them. At Christmas they had Snowman ones and at Halloween they had pumkins ones, so why not a maple leaf cookie? Those would be awesome, but I guess it's too late now, way to drop the ball Pillsbury.

This is what I'm talking about except with a red maple leaf instead of a pumpkin.

Okay, so only half my cookies turned out, but I tried. I think next I'll do some Kraft Delisso pizza with the Team Canada hockey logo on it. I'll probably burn that too.

Chuck Norrisbear will kick your ass!

Where has this movie been all my life?

Thursday, February 4, 2010


I almost forgot to post February's picture from my Chuck Norris calendar, but then I remembered. Yeah! Still nothing new or exciting has happened.

They are cutting hours at work, so if you aren't full time then you can't get more than 28 hours a week. I'm only PT, but for my years of loyal and dedicated service they've given me 29 hours a week. Thanks?? That doesn't bother me much because I'm lazy. I get three days off a week and get to sleep in for 4 days. Except when you are at work you have to work twice as hard to make up for the lack of employees.

Today was one of my days off and in addition to playing some Battlefield 1943 and the Bad Company 2 demo I managed to do some vacuuming and washed the dishes. That doesn't sound like much, but for me that is pretty good. See I told you that nothing exciting happened.

Still here.

I know I haven't posted for a while, but I was waiting for something interesting to happen and unfortunately it never did. I'll give you a quick update of the past week anyway.

I picked up No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle for the Wii. I liked the first one (never finished it) and the sequel irons out some of the things I didn't like about the first. The camera still needs work though. The game is pretty funny and has tons of style and attitude. If you like slicing guys in half, collecting coconuts and helping your overweight cat lose weight then this game is for you.

Cody bought a new fancy dual band broadband wireless router. The old one worked fine, but Cody thought we need a newer fancier one. Currently, we have the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and my laptop connected to it. Yes, I got a cheap basic laptop for Christmas. I just it for surfing the internet and writing blogs without having to go down to the cold dark basement. It's working out good so far except I think the battery is already toasted. It has been plugged in for almost three days straight and the battery is only 49% charged. What is taking so long? Also, our old router is now kinda useless, therefore anyone who wants it can have it.

Now that it is February it is time to celebrate Black History Month. Tonight me and Cody watched the 70's blaxploitation flick Truck Turner starring Isaac Hayes. It was pretty awesome with some cool and violent action scenes. Nichelle Nichols, Uhura from Star Trek, steals the movie as she keeps the bitches in line. She's sexy, bad ass and has some of the best and foul dialogue in the whole movie. "Prime cut bitches" is Cody's new catch phrase.
