i have some deserved time off coming up. it was originally time set aside for another trip, but things change. so.... i need to find something to do the majority of the last week in july. i wanted to goto vegas, but that might be a costly endeavor. [; I kinda want to go back to toronto, but that would be quite the drive for me. [not that i haven't done it twice already]
anyway, a great friend of mine told me that if you have to travel somewhere it is always best to be going for some reason. so i have been thinking and have decided to involve the fam in helping me come up with ideas. the first thing that popped into my mind was going to the mall of america. everyone else in my family has been there and i am such a mall person i feel like i'm missing out. yeah i'm silly. if you haven't figured that out yet, start reading.
but anyway, i want to have some other options so please help me come up with some ideas. what is going on around the midwest that week that would be fun to hit up. i want to get out and have some fun. hopefully get some drinking in and see what other kind of trouble i can get into. post your ideas and lets see what comes up.
Update: I live in lexington kentucky, i frequent ohio, and i'm not afraid to drive. hope that helps.
first and foremost, my last post drove a like minded individual to create a dtoid account just to send me kind words. he sent it ages ago, so i am afraid that i missed my chance to talk with him. if anyone knows tpwellington tell him to check his message box.
next... it has been a long time and i'm luckily [for you] not as drunk as i was last time.
tonight was going to be a night for another rant. then i read the above mentioned message and my whole day turned around.
just wanted to give a little update. i no longer live with my ex. i have my own new apartment. but i just recently got the internet back so that is part of my absence. Things have been up and down lately. but the good news is, i am getting my love of games back. the pleasure i once lost is now back helping me through this rough patch.
i will be back soon with something news so keep an eye out.
ooh, everything is so pretty and new. lots of neat additions. me likey. i was really just posting to say that i miss you guys, i am not dead.....yet [although 50 hour work weeks make me feel dead] and i want to attend a shitty movie night if they still happen.
well ta ta for now. and remember somebody loves you, but someone else loves you only for your body. [:
I bought everday shooter the day it dropped and have loved every minute of it. now i'm not saying i'm any sort of uber god at it, but i have a tip for those that might be struggling.
get the points to were you can buy the shuffle option for normal play. i found out tonight that by random chance if i start on the second level, i can rack up lots of lives because of the amount of points i can get. that followed up with the third level [a level many have said is really hard, which it is] really worked for me. instead of going into the 3rd level with only a few lives, i was able to go in with 7! granted when i got done, i only had 3, but without the advantage, i would have been able to get to the forth level finally.
does anyone else have any suggestions? that was the biggest help for me besides practice that really made things go alot smoother. granted this suggestion doesn't always work because sometimes you will start on the 3rd level, but you might find a mix that will allow you to go further than a straight run through. i've only gotten to the 4th stage, so i can't tell you how this plan carries over with other levels unlocked, but give it shot.

what that does is makes it so when ever anyone clicks on a page that has that code showing the piture, imgred servers view the picture, cache it on their servers, then continue to serve it from then on out. [well for a while, but from what i can tell, if the picture has been cleared from their cache, the link will refresh if the picture is still at the original address.] its free. sorry let me try that again its free and there is nothing more to it than putting a little extra in the address to the picture. hell it will even do thumbnails if you want to view something along that line instead. [check out their website for the explanation on that.]
so go ahead have fun, it will make the internet a little easier to manage when it comes to picture placement in blogs/forums.
