Guess what I've been doing?  I'm kidding you don't have to guess because I'm going to tell you!  Prepare to read some words.

Last Friday, March 18th, I only worked a morning shift, so after I was done I went over to Best Buy which is across the street from where I work.  If you remember I was pimping the Star Wars EDM  album a while ago and March 18th was the release date.  I went to BB to just see if they carried it and what the price was going to be.  They didn't have the CD, in fact they didn't have any CDs at all.  I asked the customer service girl about it and she said they only sell CDs online which is kinda stupid.  Most people go to actual stores to buy CDs and go online to buy digital music. I say most people because I just bought a couple CDs online the other day, but they were Japanese, so it's not like I could buy them here anyway.

I didn't get the Star Wars CD, but I ended up Just Cause 3 for the XBone.  It was down to that or Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.  I got Just Cause 3 because it was cheaper and it came with a download code for Just Cause 2, so you are really getting 2 games.  In addition to only working a half day on Friday I also got Saturday, Sunday and Monday off, so I got lots of time to mess around with it.  It's just "okay", but I'm thinking maybe I should've gotten PvZ.  I'll admit to not being very good at it and most of the time I'm just going around doing my own thing and blowing up stuff and liberating towns and taking over bases.  The missions so far are pretty boring which is why I prefer to spend my time doing whatever I want.  There are lots of side activities, but I haven't even attempted to finish one yet.  I saw there is a racing one, but the vehicles controls don't seem that great.  Blowing stuff up and the explosions look real pretty which can cause some brutal frame rate drops.  Also, load times can be pretty lengthy.

Since Best Buy didn't have that Star Wars CD I was looking for I went to Wal-Mart on Saturday because Wal-Mart is awesome!  Or so I thought because turns out they didn't have it either.  I did a online check for HMV and they don't carry it either.  Over at they do have it, but it's an import.  Thanks Disney, you can't release it in Canada or something?  I guess they don't want our colourful money.

Usually I work Sunday, so it was weird to get Sunday off.  I had all these plans to get up and go to the Sunnyside flea market because I haven't been there for so long.  I got up, got ready, got dressed to go out and then I was like forget it I'm staying inside like the anti-social loser I am.  I played Just Cause 3 and then I cleaned the toilet and the shower, then I played Star Wars Battlefront.  They introduced daily challenges in Battlefront, so I admit I have been playing it more lately.  I still suck at it, but at least I'm better than Cam.  I'm currently at rank 45 and so close to top rank which is rank 50.  They need to do another 2X weekend to help me get there.

Those are my Battlefront stats, they are not the best, but they are the best I can do.  I mostly play Walker Assault and I make it my mission to take out all the AT-STs I can when playing as Rebels, so some of the 455 vehicles destroyed are fighters and even a couple AT-ATs, most are AT-STs.  I love blowing up vehicles which I why I loved the engineer class in Battlefield 3.  Also, I'm sure you noticed the 79 suicides.  Some of those are on accident, some I killed myself to take out an enemy player, but most were done on purpose.  I'll kill myself without hesitation if it means robbing an enemy player of a kill and points.  I'm a jerk like that!  I end up doing it a lot playing Fighter Squadron.

Today on Monday, my final day off I bought some groceries, went to Cash Converters, the thrift store, played more Star Wars and watched the first two episodes of Doubutsu Sentai Jyuohger.  Some of my groceries consisted of two more boxes of Frosted Flakes, so that means I'm getting another spoon!

I had planned on getting Netflix by last Friday, so I could watch Pee-Wee's Big Holiday, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.  I see Cam and Cara have watched it and had differing views about it.  Well I value Cara's opinion, I trust Cam's more.  I will be checking this out soon!

Since I've been staying up later than usual and sleeping in later than usual I better get to sleep.  Later.

Hey Keith, I think Netflix has a 30-day free trial, but you gotta remember to cancel before the 30 days is up. Be warned: there is no porn.

When I first had Netflix quite a while ago I did the first month is free deal, so hopefully I can do that again. Also, I'm not sure if I should set it up on my XBox or Blu-ray player...
