Winter Weather Causes Me Computer Headaches & Grace Is Gone
We got nailed here in Michigan with a ton of wet heavy snow. Our power went out briefly a couple of times. Then the next day I couldn't get online. I think the power surge fried my router or something. I guess you really don't realize just how much you depend on being online untill you can't get online. Being online is now more important than being able to watch television. Actually neither is important, but in my mind they both are. It is good to get away from being online for a couple of days, but after that I need my online fix. Sad but true. Of course I also need to be online for Gamefly and Netflix. Speaking of computers I think it's time I went out and bought another one. This one is four years old now and has a few issues. I just don't want to spend the money on one.
Ever watch movies that make you cry? I rarely ever cry because of a movie, but man the movie Grace Is Gone really destroyed me. John Cusack was great in his role as the father of two young daughters who lose their mother to the war in Iraq. It was heart wrenching. Of course it also hit home for me because I was very young when I lost my father to cancer. I think this may have been Cusacks's best performance.

- I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
