"Maybe I'll just pop into the kitchen and make some scones."
What came out:
"Maybe I'll just poop into the kitchen and make some scones."
She was holding a poop emoji stuffy in her arms as I said it. Much laughter at my expense ensued.
With just a little too much Ryan Reynolds...
Some things should be left to the imagination. Not mine though, maybe Moricerevek's.
I wonder if Rolly will loan me his Wii U?

Ghost Recon Wildlands creates a diplomatic incident between Bolivia and France
Verbatim from Reuters:
The Bolivian government has filed a formal complaint with the French embassy about a video game produced by a French company that portrays the South American country as an area controlled by drug traffickers, authorities said.
- We are really excited to announce that the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta will take place from February 23 at 6 am EST to February 27 at 6 am EST! You’ll be able to preload the game starting on February 21 at 6 AM EST. You can RSVP for the Open Beta here: www.ghostrecon.com/beta.
- The open beta is entirely playable in co-op! Gather your squad and create your own tactics to defeat the cartel. Prefer to go on stealth operations or dive into the enemy camp guns blazing? It’s up to you to decide!
For those of us who have been obsessed with SW: Battlefront over the past few weeks, much of this will be very funny.
Some of it will hit a little too close to home to be funny.

The cheap TV I picked up from Graybush is starting to add up...
My original repair job on the 37" LG cost me a $2.55 capacitor and a little bit of disassembly and soldering time.
This time I had to replace three different parts. Three! Each one of them costing $1.75. Each! $5.93 total! (and some additional disassembly and soldering).
If this gets much worse I am going to have to start billing some of this back to Graybush!
Three turkeys wandered through my back yard in Arundel this morning.
After careful consideration (for a half-second) I named them Blackwalt, Coxxorz and Graybush.
The Ghosts are a legendary US Elite Special Operations team. Tasked to go behind enemy lines in Bolivia, South America. Their goal: to create chaos that will destabilize and eventually break the alliance between the Santa Bianca cartel and the corrupted Bolivian government.
This. Is. Not. Their. Story.
The Herd of Cats is a mundane, mostly Canadian, lesser known, XBox Live clan. Tasked to go into Blackwalt’s basement in Ottawa, Canada. Their goal: to virtually split into four man tactical teams and randomly create chaos within a virtual recreation of Bolivia, South America.
This. Is. Their. Story.
These. Are. The. Details.

Sniper Elite 4 Launch Trailer
Not this Valentine's Day for me though. For some reason Amazon isn't shipping my copy of Sniper Elite 4 until February 17th. With an arrival date of February 21st.
Wait... isn't that an entire week after it's release date? Why yes. Yes it is. Several discussions with Amazon customer service has yet to change anything.
Yes I pre-ordered my copy despite my ban on pre-ordering. This is a Rebellion game and since our foray into Zombie Army Trilogy I figure we owe them some loyalty. Anything I can do to pump up their numbers I am going to do.
PS- Pssst! Rebellion? Any time for Zombie Army Trilogy 2.
I got mine! Have you got yours?
