Doesn't seem particularly great from the trailer.

We need another Snatch or LS&TSB.

With the paucity of anything interesting to me in the gaming landscape right now, i have fired up my trusty DSL again and have been playing Elite Beat Agents.

DSL is still the best piece of gaming hardware ever. smile

Seeing that this thread is almost 9 years old, it's neat that GT is kind of like a historical record of my gaming past.

Seriously. Discussing/Defending KOTOR with you were some of my favorite forum moments.

You talking about walking around in it because 'a Jedi wouldn't run' was one of my great 'WTF is this guy crazy' + 'Man this guy is awesome.' moments.

I've been using turbotax for pretty much as long as I've been paying taxes.  However, I'm got a sinking feeling that I've been leaving money on the table and am seriously considering an accountant this year.

What do you guys do?

Thoughts?

What does your team need to do this offseason?

Bills: Rebuild at Offense.  Again.  Rex Ryan comes in as head coach after being fired by the in-division Jets, which finished 4-12.  Kyle Orton decided to retire rather than stick around, and we will probably get to see another year of EJ Manuel struggle on the big stage, including in London vs. the Jaguars during Pink month.

Just like lynch, Manuel will become a superstar as soon as he leaves the bills.

Great anecdote from MMQB this week:


This comes from Jim Steeg, who for years ran the Super Bowl and big NFL events:

“Back in the seventies, the Dolphins were going to play the Raiders in Oakland. They practiced at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, and in the locker room Larry Csonka found laying there the Raiders’ game plan for the next day’s game. He gave it to [Dolphins offensive line coach] Monte Clark to give to Don Shula, which Monte did.

“The next day the Dolphins got beat by the Raiders. Csonka went to Monte and asked, ‘How did we lose? We had their game plan.’

“Monte’s response: ‘I gave it to Don and he threw it in the trash. He said, ‘We do not cheat!’ ”

The RNC should not even let her near this campaign.

It's not a joke to me. I'm far from the die hard fan I used to be, but allowing cheaters a pass will further deteriorate the integrity of the game.

It makes me mad.

It makes me mad that Brad Johnson did it. He was - I thought- a stand up guy and I used to cheer for him when I was in DC and he played for the Skins.  Now I think he's a piece of garbage.

I frigging hate cheaters.

Finished the book and am now working on the commentaries.

I think the complexity of the story he's writing is well executed and the writing is still very solid.

However, the emotional impact (with the exception of a few strips toward the end) is significantly less than the last one.

I give it a good 4/5 and it's a solid continuation of the story.

Also, reading all of these throwback gags just a few pages apart from each other sort of diminished them and I had to remind myself that this was 5 years worth of material and some of these strips were separated by many weeks or months.

My decision now is do I read along for the rest of the way or do I wait another 5 years for the next book?

Not sure yet.

Just get used to him planning on games for personnel or skill types your team doesn't have.

Agreed. Many great hours were had with it.  It's just not what it could/should have been.

Bob-  Nonna and gang are obsessed with this game (like to unhealthy levels, imo) and I'm sure he'd love to play along with you as you come up. Or maybe not. He's pretty much a Destiny snob now. Right Romy? slywink

So now, every day I ask her three things before we go to sleep:

2. Have I made you feel cherished today?


I really like this.  I need to be far more proactive with these in my marriage as well, as I tend to really take her for granted.  This sort of daily affirmation will be a really good place to start.

Thanks for this input ATB.   thumbsup

As i mentioned before, my wife and I had a pretty big flare up at the end of 2014.  A lot of it had to do with the way that I (almost always) unintentionally make her feel...less than and/or prove her side of a decision.  Other areas included how selfish I've become with my time.

During this HEATED back and forth she said a few things specifically that resonated with me.  So now, every day I ask her three things before we go to sleep:

1. Have I made you feel loved today?
2. Have I made you feel cherished today?
3. Have I led you spiritually today?

These three questions and the impacts they've had on how i approach everything in the relationship have renewed an amazing sense of joy in our relationship.  It's pretty awesome and I praise God fo rit.

I think if you can get past the revisionist history (as rittchard so amazingly put it) that you never loved her and start asking these questions to her things will be illuminated in your character (and hers) and how you treat her that will allow you to heal and reunite.

My wife and I had some pretty heavy discussions in the past week or so- getting some really hurtful things on the table. Admittedly, most of them are my fault.  I am so optimistic right now about how we've recalibrated some things so that we will continue to grow and grow back together that I'm bursting with a joy I haven't known in a long time.

It will take an incredible amount of work.

Three things that differ from you:

1. We've never even considered divorce and never will. We promised that to each other long before we were married.

2. We are diving back in full hearted into seeking God again. Not with the scraps of our time, but as a priority and together.  I still contend that you truly need to seek Christ absent the lies of your former religion.

3. I am madly truly deeply in love with my wife and always have been.  You say you're not and never have been. Frankly, I think you're full of shit.  I think you're going through a patch where it's not what it is supposed to be in your head, or you've changed and are becoming more selfish.  No offense.

Also, 'not having anything in common' is easily fixable. But you have to be willing to work at it.
