Woe is the Neglected Xbox. Shame is the Forgotten WoW. Speed Link Fun!

So I don’t really know what it is but my Xbox 360 is gathering dust from misuse. WoW, I have only logged on to see if any friends are on, but they aren’t, so I log off almost immediately. What’s going on? Is the romance over? I remember picking up my Xbox 360 and I barely left the house because I would be playing all day. If I wasn’t going out, I wouldn’t even shower or brush my teeth. Same with WoW, I still fondly remember those 18 hour marathon days and the, “brb, bio break”, typed for whenever I needed to relieve myself.

I’ve had lots of time to play too, it’s been a very slow winter for me work-wise so there is no reason for me not to pass the time with gaming. I just simply have lost the drive that I used to have. I get bored really easily now. My GF is busy working on the TV series “The 4400” so I only get to see her when I visit set for lunch or on the weekends, my weekdays have been pretty uneventful but I find myself watching a LOT of TV now. Thank goodness for old Battlestar Galactica reruns and the UFC.

I don’t even feel like going out because of all the bad drivers nowadays, my roadrage is getting out of control. Now I just relax by staying home and surfing the net and working on my blog.

My buddy and online guru Stephen (who runs a slew of websites) recently began an interesting concept called speed linking. I think now is a good time for me to give it a try and spread the love by supporting some other sites.

  • Dan, when not involved in his passion for interpretive dance, recently blogged about and Xbox Live Points Converter that he created. It works with 6 differents currencies: US, Canada, Australia, UK, Japan, and the Euro.
  • Fellow blogger Nick has hit on an old sore note with one of his recent blogs. College textbooks. Some of the courses I took back in my college days, especially the business computing ones (with the software bundles), had textbooks that cost more than the tuition on some other courses.
  • The post whore we all know and . . . cough . . . love, Saman. Recently blogged about the good ol’days of DOS command prompts. I’m old enough to remember when you had to type in every command manually, none of this Windows stuff.
  • Ex-WoW champ Ed allows me to live my gaming experiences vicariously through him with his console game reviews. When he’s not busy watching America’s Next Top Model, Ed is busy surfing the net for free in the computer department at London Drugs.
  • Tyler wrote a blog about a local group of Exotic Dancers that started a fundraising event to collect money for cancer research. The Canadian Cancer Society decided to refuse their money because they did not approve of the means through which the funds were raised. Booooo! I give strippers much love.
  • ***Begin to copy here***

    1. Write a short paragraph at the beginning of your post and link back to the blog that put you on the list in the paragraph. This isn’t a suggestion. You need to break up the duplicate content string. Someone took the time to add you so the least you can do is give them an extra linkback.
    2. Copy the list of originals below COMPLETELY and add it to your blog. If you would like a different keyword for your blog then change it when you do your post and it should pass to most blogs with that keyword.
    3. Take the adds from the blog that added you and place them in the “Originals” list.
    4. Add no more than 5 new TECH, SCIENCE, or CONSUMER ELECTRONICS blogs to the list in the “My Adds” section.

    No problems, bro. I’m thinking that I’m gonna do a speed link post once a month, with a shout-out to the people who leave the most comments.

    Sad i missed it. Or not. I’m sure my Gf is glad I missed it. She’s very bitter that a few of my exes were exotic dancers. I used to live at Brandi’s.
    We should organize a Dot Com Strip Club night, we’ll do a circuit of some of our favorite Vancouver peeler bars. It’d make a great blog, although it would probably make me single again :(
