Let's all go...to A&W; Xbox 360

I like A&W. There's something quaint about it. I especially love their big, honkin' frosted root beer glasses. I don't know why, but soda out of a frosted glass tastes so much better. That is why today, I purchased a big, honkin' A&W glass.

I had placed in the freezer for an hour and drank some Dr Pepper out of it and it was fantastic. For y'all who've never had the pleasure of having soda from a chilled glass, I feel sorry for you, your families and your eventual children.

In other news, I put a downpayment on the Xbox 360 that will come out this November. I've read a lot about it and the PS3 and while I think the PS3's specs are completely INSANE, Sony has indeed finally gone mad and will price it out of the range of any normal person. Meanwhile, the Xbox 360 has some pretty neat features to it and some cool games in the pipeline. Yay for videogames!

As for videogames, I'm just getting started in the huge and apparently veeeeeery long Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The content is so beyond anything I've played (including the previous games in the series). But what a game! The design and scope are simply astounding. GTA: SA is so wrong but feels so right.

Welcome to the 80s

So we finally have a micro-wave in the house. It's fantastic! You put things inside and in a short amount of time, foods and such heat up! It's fantastic. It's slightly used and isn't digital (it has a dial to set the time), but it works fine. The only problem is...I have nothing to microwave. So it's all good having this machine but presently, it's a colossal waste of space. I do plan on having some good times with the thing, so here's to good, quickly warmed eatin'...

Props to AA for hosting an all night pool-fest. It's good to have friends with pool tables and booze in the basement. Huzzah!

Quiznos; Family Guy movie

They opened up a Quiznos Sub in St-Bruno. Let me be the first to tell you that it is a delight to dine on their foods. The ingredients taste so fresh and good. I'll pick Quiznos over Subway anytime. If you have a chance, go eat there.

So for those of you who don't know, there's a direct-to-dvd Family Guy movie coming out in September. How is it, then, that I've already seen it? Aha! Because I am resourceful! Anyway, it's pretty funny. Since it's not on tv, though, they do some stuff that would maybe barely get aired. And that's not including the swearing. It's odd to hear swearing coming out of these cartoon characters, but whatever. It's not too bad a movie. I'm told that it will have an alternate voice track and will be aired on tv in 3 episodes in the fall, so everyone will have a chance to see it.
