Some of you need to not take everything so 100% literal. Of course I want to watch and see him do well. The only part of me that didn't want to watch was the part that hates seeing him take it so personally if he doesn't. What I get for sharing an event...

He made it into the pool that goes to state, and he'll get a trophy. Everything else is just gravy at this point. Whew.

Nah I love that he's into it and good at it. It's just nerve racking to watch, lol.

He made to the oral round, sitting here watching now. A girl he's friends with just got the boot for 'whiskery'. And so it begins...

So my son is at the district spelling bee today, they show at 9am, have a written test, and the top 40 scoring kids move on to the spoken part of the bee.

Part of me kind of wishes he won't make it past the written part because I'll have to drive over and sit through the spoken round, which is a huge, tense ordeal. I can't watch any of them while they're spelling, especially my son, it's like the most tense survival horror game ever.

At the same time, I know he'll be super bummed out if he doesn't make it to the spoken round, and I don't want that either. Last year he made it to the regional competition and came in 3 spots lower than he needed to move onto state, but he was pretty happy about just having made it that far, so it was cool.

Man, being a parent some days....

"Scheduled for March 2013, Aliens: Colonial Marines’ first additional content pack, “Bug Hunt” will throw players into an all-new multiplayer mode where they have to take on waves of increasingly difficult enemies in three brand new maps based on environments from the ALIENS film."

On one hand, I really like horde mode when it's done well. On the other hand, it seems like since it was introduced as part of the game in Gears 2, developers have decided to make it a fairly big ticket DLC item ($10 outside of the Season Pass in this case). For $10, DLC with JUST horde mode and a few levels for it seems like a tough pill to swallow. I've already pre-ordered and pre-loaded the game on Steam and was toying with the idea of picking up the Season Pass, but now I want to see how much content the other 3 DLC packs included in it have. If the Season Pass hits $20 on GMG or something, I may snag it anyway though, we'll see.

Actually, looks like the Season pass is $20.25 on GMG right now w/ a 25% off code they're offering. I had $10 in credit from buying Dead Space, so went ahead and snagged it. They also have the game itself for $37.50 right now.

I really liked Timothy Olyphant as the lead. A lot of people didn't like the movie, but I don't think the actor was the problem.

He's awesome on Justified tho.

And I did like the movie, so...

They should give the role to the guy who played February on Fringe.

Or is he September? Shit, I can't remember.

They're available for pre-order on Amazon now for $100 shipped, shipping in June. I went ahead and pre-ordered one. I'll probably forget about it, it'll show up, and then I'll have post-purchase regret.

Like most things I buy.

30 is fine if the game is fun.

I like my framerate like I like my women.

Doubled.

I rarely get either.
