I know I've been missing. Wait...did any of you notice I have been missing? Does anyone even read this anymore?
Anyhoo, I haven't had a lot to report lately, so I've remained silent. Here are a few factoids I've scrounged up for you.
1. I bought a Xbox 360 last week. Squee! I have't played Xbox in years (only the old system), so it's neat to see how it has evolved. I got a good deal on it too ($100 discount during checkout at Dell.com, and it came with 3 games, a wireless controller, and a headset to use with Xbox live).
2. For V-day (aka VD), I got Halo 3 and a subscription to Xbox live. Nothing says "I love you" like giving someone the opportunity to pretend she's The Master Chief. And kick random strangers' butts worldwide. Just sayin'.
3. Unfortunately, in my several year sabbatical from Xboxing, I have gotten extremely sucky at video games, so the butt kicking might just be a dream at this point.
4. Speaking of sucky, every work day is full of surprises. The other day, a coworker really wanted to know what a certain word (I won't spell it out b/c I would hate to disappoint someone who does a search on it and ends up here!) that rhymes with gel-ratio meant. So when it was finally explained to her, she wanted to know how anyone would know that word and proceeded to ask everyone who walked down the aisle if they knew what that word meant. Loudly.
I told her I was embarrassed for her because she probably shouldn't be yelling that word out at work...when clients were on the floor, but she said she wasn't embarrassed because nobody knows that word anyway.
