Follow up on Fidel law suite...

Cheater blog post here... Just figured I'd share an email I sent to my harry potter friends after reading the news article about the woman suing Fidel Castro

From Carlo

To Harry Potter bunch.

So I think the new ending for harry potter should be that Harry decides that instead of continuing the mission that Dumbledoor set him on at the end of book 6, he instead sues Lord Voldomort for the wrongful deaths of Lilly & James Potter, Series Black and Cedric Diggory. The claim would mention that the Lord Voldomort did knowingly and willingly kill the above without regard for human life and emotional damages to the plaintiff. And I think harry should end up winning an extra 1 billion galleon’s at the end of the book…

What is the world coming to?

BELFAST, Maine - A woman has sued Fidel Castro, alleging that the Cuban leader caused the wrongful death of her pilot father after he was shot down over Cuba and imprisoned in 1963 while on a covert mission.


Seriously... I feel for you loss, it's terrible to grow up with out a parent due to a tragic death... But seriously lady, your father was in the military flying a spy mission in enemy territory. Unfortunately he was shot down, and sadly died while being held captive. You can't sue for that, that's just the way things are.

Things to remember when buying presents...

So I decided the other day to go ahead and get Kathy a nice house warming present... I'm not going to say what it is since technically she doesn't have it yet and there's an off chance she'll read this before getting it (very small, but you never know right?). Anyway, I decided to get her a nice cute little present to go with her nice cute little (well, nice sized) apartment.

Thing that I didn't realize (particularly since I haven't delt with this issue in a long time) is that the shipper was going to require a signature with UPS! All I have to say is damnet! You know, ya try to get some one a nice present to cheer up their day a little (not that she hasn't been cheery as it is what with the new job/apt) but nope... It has to become a whole big mess over signature required and UPS refusing to deliver after 5 :(

Makes me feel sad, I certainly hope that when all is said and done she's happy with it and that it was worth it all for her (this was just supposed to be a cute little something)! Next time, I'm sticking to shippers that I know aren't signature nazi's!

I would however like to take a second to mention that I  do understand the signature nazism of this shipper given the nature of what is being sent, there could be potential badness just leaving it out... Just kind of a frustrating thing to have happen!

Looong trip this weekend!

But well worth it! Went to go visit Kat at her new place. Originally I had the idea in my head that I would be helping her unpack things, get all organized up and such. As it turns out, she and her dad had everything under control! Her mom and I were shocked when we showed up (that was the major useful thing I got to do, play chofeer! lol). I did get to do some small stuff, help her dad get pictures set up and such. So I did in the end get to do a bit of work, if only || that much.

Her apartment is amazing, she's got it layed out perfectly. And it was completely awesome getting to visit! We got to go see the new Harry Potter movie at the iMax in Charollet which was anywhere between amazing and eh, doesn't quite look right. For those of you wanting to go, the credits, fight scenes and landscapes are killer, on the other hand closeups are stretched and if you peek at the closing credits while walking out you'll probably get dizzy and fall down. Over all though, WELL worth the teeny tiny bit extra you pay over a normal theater.

Of course after the three of us got back home (Kat's friend Mina whom I had never met before joined us) we broke out the order of the phonix Wii game and went to town!

Well darn, I should be in bed right now! And I mean, really should be! Good night everyone.

Happy 4th!

Happy forth to everyone! Hope it was fun and safe for all... Mine was sedate... Watched movies, got a new Wii-mote + numchuk, visited Kathy for a little while (actually was picking up movies but she came home while I was a chit chatting away with leslie). Then more movies. I did burn some sparklers (queue Monty Python "yay" effect).

Oh so near the end of Zelda!

Ah yes, one of the few games I could actually be engaged enough to keep playing right through to the end. Not only that, but actually still be addicted to... Basically, I just need the big key for the twilight palace. Then I can kill Zant 4 times over. After that I fight through the palace, free Zelda with her help defeat Gannandorf (according to my cheater guide that I've been using for bosses). It'll be great to finally finish up. I really want to see how things end up! Then perhaps, I'll play through again with a mind on actually getting all the upgrades (bigger wallet, more heart containers etc).
