Las Vegas

Few places on this earth are better for fun that Las Vegas Nevada. There are so many things to do and so many places to see that its hard to get it in all in one visit, but dammit I'm gonna try. We are going for our Gamestop manager conference so after meetings with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft as well as some of the other bigger gaming companies the town is ours to pretty much do what we will. This will be my 2nd trip to Vegas and there are so many things I missed the 1st time its like going again for the 1st time, so Mandalay Bay here we come and I'm sure I'll have all kinds of things to post about when I get back.

Is there any real way to get around the fact that moving sucks? Sure getting a new house is awsome amd there are plenty on things about the old one you don't like, but man packing and getting it all moved is just not cool. I'm really exited to get it all unpacked and get in the new house, figureing out where everything goes and buying stuff for the new house are always really cool, so really I suppose its only the begginging that sucks I tend to like the rest of it.

Speaking of moving, Michal Phelps?!?! Really? 8 gold medals 7 world records and an olympic record. Even if you don't call him the greatest althlete in the world (which he most likely is) you have to put him in the conversation with Tiger and Federer. Master of his craft.

"They are Villains Clair"

Oh man, am i ready for this. I just finished watching the 2nd season of heros again so my girlfriend could catch up, then I watched the trailer for season 3. I know season 2 lost alot of people but i still found it pretty enjoyable (not near up to the standards of the 1st season).

The third season looks amazing and from week to week I will look forward to counting down the days till i get to see next weeks episode I'm sure, if you have not seen it yet you have no idea what you are missing, and if you stopped watching the 2nd season because you got bored or whatever, watch this and I think you might finish!

New house

Checks are in the mail deposits are paid and we are moving to Mt.Vernon on the 22nd of this month. I'm looking at this as kind of an adventure and the fact that it looks more and more each day like I'll be back very soon im pretty exited. Not to meantion Mt.Vernon has a Mazzios pizza which is sick! So it will be fun I think and I won't be to far from springfield

Midnight Launch

So Madden released last night and i was at my store for about 12 hours last night so that about 45 people could come and pick up the game, question is was it worth mine and everyone elses time.

At my store seeing as how we went through 45 copies of the game I would say yes, but I overheard my DM talking and some other stores had maybe 4 show I can't see the use in this and we do it time and time again, well I should say I couldn't see the use in thsi before but if anyone saw the Wal-Mart commercial for madden they knew it was going to be available at midnight and where they could pick it up thus all of our stores had to be opened to try and combat it, tbh gamestop really dropped the ball this is awsome check it out

Here Goes

Well here I go, I've never been a blogger before but I have always wanted to give it a shot. Alot has happened in the last few weeks, I got a promotion at work and not im trying to decide if I should move to Mt Vernon or not. There are alot of things that say I should and being its only 27 miles out of Springfield it doesn't really make that huge of a diffrence, but there are alot of nagging questions about where im gonna be in the near future and if its worth it at all to move out of Springfield.
A good friend of mine asked me just a min. ago "why can't anything be easy" and with all thats gone on its extremly clear that nothing is, but really would life be much fun if it was not that way? What if you always had the answer, What if there was nothing you ever had to want, I think these things that all of us go through make us stronger, better people. I know every one of my friends have had hard times, times when it seems nothing will ever go right and when they needed help and the fact that all of us have been in that situation and helped someone that was we are all very close.
This was my 1st stab at this and i hope if you read it i didnt completely bore you to death I'll be back with other things I have to learn how this is all suppose to be done.
