I like Xbox better, so I'll always play my sports games on there, even though, like I said, I haven't played any of them in years.

Some friends and I did a yahoo fantasy hockey draft offline. Today I am entering in the draft results and Beau Bennett isn't in yahoo's system. Does anyone know who I can contact to get Beau in or how to fix this problem other than calling my buddy up and telling him to pick somebody else?

Yes sir it is. In other to get the full GTA IV experience I'd grab this though. It's dirt cheap now too.

http://www.amazon.com/Grand-Theft-Ep...mplete+edition

It contains GTA 4 as well as the two expansion packs "The Lost And Damned" and "The Ballad Of Gay Tony."

While GTA 4 by itself suffered from not much to do after you beat the main storyline, the expansion packs really add to the game with their own storylines and whatnot IMO. Plus each game does have online multiplayer modes and stuff. And some of the weapons in the expansion packs are better than the ones found in the vanilla version of GTA 4.

I remember I bought those two GTA 4 expansion packs back when they were released as this:

I haven't come close to finishing any GTA game since Vice City...but I'm definitely looking forward to 5...if only because I'm looking forward to driving around my own neighborhood.

The fact that it's only in Los Santos instead of trying to fit 3 cities and a bunch of land in-between is huge...then factor in the fact that the map is going to be way larger as it is...I look forward to Vinewood being more than 5 square blocks. That and anyone who knows me can vouch for the fact that I loathe early 90s culture...which didn't help. I hate 80s culture too, but Vice City was campy enough to make it funny.

GTA4 just failed to draw me in after numerous attempts to get into it.

Yeah GTA 5 is gonna be sick for sure.

Since I have a Gamestop in the mall across the street from my apartment, I'm tempted to get it at midnight on the day it comes out if that store in the mall across from me does a midnight launch for it.

I've never gone for a midnight launch before, but for GTA 5 I'd make an exception.

On an unrelated note, the unopened bottle of Crown Royal I have is calling my name. I don't know whether to open that sucker up now, or wait until Saturday?

2:28AM Wednesday but yes.

I think I will and should open it Big, you're right. I wish I had a cigar to go with it though.

*take a puff and a sip of Crown*

On a separate note, I've already had to cut back half of my GDT work because of anti-Fox tangents.

Well I had some Crown earlier Big, but not for my original reasons.

About 3 hours ago I got hit with a HUGE Trojan virus on my PC that even had locked me out of my desktop. Even though I'm pretty PC smart the seriousness of said virus had me beyond petrified (mainly because it locked me out of my desktop so I couldn't even get into my virus scanner or anywhere to get rid of the thing myself.) so I had about 5 shots of Crown to calm my nerves.

Luckily my neighbor is a night owl and a huge PC nerd/nerd in general (think Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory) so I frantically knocked on his door and he was able to fix it.

What a technological nightmare...

I never forgot that. I thought you bet him his account. Just changing the username kills it a bit.

Going into hour 9 of being stopped on a highway in Virginia. Haven't gone out of park since 11 pm. Literally drove through an ice storm to get to Charleston, got there and it was beautiful and 80 degrees and leave and apparently Virginia is closed due to snow. Round trip should be 20 hours. We are halfway home and on hour 29. It hasn't actually snowed since 8 pm.

I had to go down to do some paperwork stuff for the new job. And to find a place to live. Then I get to go back on tuesday for orientation. Then I can move into the place I found on Saturday. So ya, I'm making the round trip twice and one more trip down in about a week and a half

this was the stressful trip though because I had to find a place to live. Which is annoyingly difficult when you own a Pit Bull.

That is a ton of travel. Congrats again on the new job.

Finding a place to live any dog can be a challenge. A Pit Bull, even more so I'm sure.

Not to gloat or sound like a complete ******, but I have finally become a Certified Public Accountant! Feels so great to have that under my belt, and so much more free time now that I don't have to put in the hours for studying. The possibilities are endless now.

Congrats that's great news. I'm a finance guy (never wanted to be a CPA) but it certainly is an accomplishment.
