So I thought maybe we could all share something that has made us happy today. (:

I just downloaded Steam for the first time today, because Indie Game The Movie is $4.99, and I really want to listen to the Super Meat Boy commentary.

What has the lovely GB community been up to today? I'm sincerely happy that you're all well & safe. Share with me what has made you smile today.

It'd be nice if everyone would keep it appropriate please & thank you.

-and may the force be with you.

I'm happy today because I started watching Downton Abbey and I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

That's awesome Soapy. What's Downtown Abbey about? I'm unfamiliar.

I went to the doctor today, got blood drawn, and received some allergy medicine which will hopefully help. heh. An exciting day indeed. Been able to watch some Major League Gaming StarCraft II Spring Arena today, as well. That has been fun.

Been really interested today by all of the discussion regarding the shooting. In light of it, I hope to get to go to see "The Dark Knight Rises" sometime in the next week. I've been looking forward to it, and it is my personal belief that violence and extremism should never dictate your life. Madmen won't run our lives or limit our happiness.

Glad you're safe, too, duder. You have a good week.

I have a rental pass, would you recommend Binary Domain? I would only play the single-player.

I mowed the lawn for my great grandmother this morning, watched Pulp Fiction with my brother, ate pizza, got on forums, played Torchlight, now I'm back on forums, and now I've got a good mind to leave them again and finish off Doom 3.

So, yeah, not really a bad day. My college called and e-mailed me to kindly tell me that I need to give them some money when they've thus far not even so much as warned me that it's past due, which kind of pissed me off but kind of is my own fault because I knew the due date for next semester's fees were coming up anyway; this just brings it to the forefront of my mind.

Here's a good question: Why is it that we can list all of the positive things we've done today in one sentence but feel like taking up the same space to tell only one negative thing?

Someone I work with who I kind of was friends with quit yesterday, and I was bummed out.

But then I stole commandeered her computer, and went from a shitty Windows XP 'puter that hasn't been updated since around 2002, to a relatively decent system with Windows 7. It's like I went into the future! 2010! I told the computer to do things. AND THEN IT DID THEM.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

We as the human race can only counteract extreme violence with extreme kindness & concern for one another. (:

I really want to go see TDKR too, I Googled which theaters can properly show it, there are only two in my state. lol

What do you have allergies too? My gf has SUPER allergies. I set her pills out for her everyday. (:

& on a smaller note: you're braver then I good sir. I've never had blood drawn. I hope to overcome my fear & donate sometime soon.

Agreed. Fire only adds to fire, but attempting to defuse fire can make progress.

I'm sure it'll be fine at whatever theater you see it. Should be a big screen though. ;)

I just have seasonal allergies, and they were checking on if anything else might be wrong(been having a consistent headache following my surgery three weeks ago). Hopefully it's just some allergies or poor sleep. Seems like that's likely.

You should donate your blood! Heck, volunteer to be a bone marrow donor, too! It's cool. I've given as a volunteer and sometimes just as part of them doing tests. It's not too bad. It can really help people out; so, check it out. :)

Awwwwwwww........ (: I have a great group of friends from GiantBomb on Google+. We have a great chatroom (Messenger/Huddle) called Duder Island.

I feel like I enjoy my time with them so much, we've become such good friends, I forget to come to the forums sometimes.
