Midnight Lunches

I believe I am going to take a nap after work, in preparation of attending a midnight GTA launch. Not because I want to play the game that bad - I'll probably end up not playing until after work tomorrow. No, it's just to get out to the event and be part of it. I'm not sure what's going on yet, but so far the plan is to head out to the store before it closes to pick up NFS:MW and see what the plan is, then head home and chill for a couple hours before returning. I don't need to be first in line - indeed, I don't really need to stand in line at all - I have my pre-order.

I've been having trouble sleeping the past few days anyway, so perhaps this will help reset the clock.

I won the Auto Challenge I was in. There was some annoyance when it started, as I had just gotten 800-some points in Madden 08 the two days prior. I ended up working to finish that, then make decent progress on some other games I'd been putting off, like Mass Effect and COD4. I also put more time into TDU, which has been getting better the more I play.

I don't know if I mentioned the games I picked up last week or not. The GS 25% off coupon came in very handy to acquire:
* Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 (2nd copy)
* NBA 2K6
* Tiger Woods 06
* NBA Live 06 (guy gave me a new copy)
* Stuntman Ignition
* Far Cry Instincts Predator

Which leaves 2 Launch games left, NFS:MW and FIFA06:RTFWC. One is located, the other... We'll see. I'm actually having quite a bit of fun mixing the older games in with the newer. Some of the achievements are cake, while others are long, boring, difficult grind-fests.

I'm a bit fried today due to the aforementioned lack of sleep. Oh, I've been playing Onslaught2, which is probably the best TD game I've played so far.

If I can get my head back into the code, I'll get some website work done. I really want to get some of them back in shape, and others up and running. Lack of Graphic Design skills mean I'm relying on free templates. But, as none of them are providing any real income thus far, it doesn't seem worth it to pay someone for the work. Which reminds me, I need to make new backups. That account deletion episode hurt more than I realized at the time - I'm still trying to rebuild pieces here and there.

The Rock Band battle is over. We may have gotten 3rd or 4th place, depending on who all reported scores this week. Last week we lucked into 3rd from last since several bands didn't report scores. We'll definitely be in last place of those who reported scores each week. We only had 3 people for the last scores, but we managed something.

I know I'm forgetting things. I'll leave it there.
