Looks like I let over a month go by again. Oh well. I had a lot going on in the first half of January. Some random thoughts...
* My car is 5 years old as of early December 2009, and is also paid off! I got the title in the mail, in fact. :D
* My LJ is 6 years old as of late December 2009.
* Had a great Christmas in Alabama. Got Ghostbusters: The Game for Xbox 360 (which I have really, really wanted), as well some gift cards and other stuff. I used my Best Buy gift card to get Raiden IV and my GameStop gift card to get some older PS2/360 games like Blazing Angels.
* Alabama won the SEC Championship and the Saints won the Super Bowl. Both teams that I wanted to win, hooray!
* Played Chromehounds over the holidays before the servers went down in January, and managed to earn over half the Achievement points. Not too shabby.
* Made it in The Mob on 1 vs. 100 Live. I was in The Mob once in Season 1, and now again in Season 2. I got eliminated in Season 1, but didn't miss a single question this time. Sadly, no prizes, since The One cashed out once he got us down to 11 and saw it was an uphill battle. However, I did earn special icons on my profile that show I was a Top 100 player and a Mob member.
* Have been playing Portal lately. I decided it's time that I catch up with the rest of the internet circa 2007/2008. Finally finished the save I started in 12/08... completed the game and the advanced challenge rooms.
