Nice free (long) weekend of fun and brief (comment/review)s...

Steam had three/3 free weekend games (Insurgency, Nosgoth, and Strike Vector) and paid television/TV services (Starz (watched The Lone Ranger movie which was lame indeed), Cinemax, Encore, and Epix -- time to record like crazy to watch later after the move into the new bigger nest, later this summer/year?).

After hibernating almost 9.5 hours nonstop and waking up...

... your old insect has a big headache after hibernating almost 9.5 hours nonstop. :(

Thank God It's Friday (TGIF) ...

... Oh wait, that was yesterday with TGIT(hursday). ;) Lovely cold weather too! Your relaxing insect hopes it stays that way for the whole long weekend!

Stupid overnight...

... Another unplanned power outage again from yesterday's unexpected evening power outage that woke up your passed out tired and still somewhat sick insect who kept waking up every other hours from king anty, (urinat/pe)eing, etc.

Meh at today...

... due to dummy body again with aching teeth, leaks (saliva), tired, and itches all over. :(

Old Windows XP Pro SP3 desktop computer just blew up!

Your tired worker ant came home, turned the old Windows XP Pro(fessional) service pack (SP)3 desktop computer on, paid another expensive monthly cable Internet bill, heard loud crack/popp)ing noises (thought it was the queen ant making firecracker type noises), saw and heard the computer shut down, looked at it closer, heard more scary loud noises, smelled and saw smokes from the rear Corsair CMPSU-650TX 650 power supply unit (PSU) area, heard more loud noises, and then quickly turned off PSU switch and unplugged power cable to avoid a fire or whatever.

Finally and your insect <3s it when...

... waking up before the vibrator alarm turns on at the scheduled time.

Kingy Anty finally retired, but will that help the future lif

Hmm, a good day?

SYMC's dollar is at 24 with Jack Bauer, free bagels from work, a new used yellow (perfect color to match the company's primary color) work bag to replace the over decade old broken leather fancy bag, gift cards from a co(worker/lleague) for hard work and forgotten one to redeem, etc.

Too hot already...

... but your BUSY worker ant is glad to in the cool office.

Stupid old sensitive body again.

Itchy, sneezy, itchy, crappy, achy teethy, etc. Bah to lame life again. Argh. :(

Quoted by Confucius in one of my new work e-mails a few minutes ago.

Finally!

Mostly a good and relaxing weekend (except being hot and loud at the end). :/

Ant's brief Mount & Blade: Warband game review (and a free weekend too).

Blue's News mentioned a sale and free weekend (ends on Sunday at 1:00 PM PDT) of Mount & Blade: Warband game (Linux friendly too!) on Steam. Your mostly retired gamer had some free time (amazing) on a peaceful half CATurday (cooler temperatures), Home Alone, to retry it. Well, retry because this gamer played the original game back in 2008 during the eviction/after being evicted from the old nest. The game's download and install sizes weren't big at all (under 900 MB on the old school hard disk drive (HDD)). It helped to be distracted during its wait like taking a quick belated cool shower to cool off from the heat wave.

Argh.

Crazy life again. Not a good way to end the weekend since today sucked and was tiring (did not get to rest, hibernate, nap, etc.). :(

"... Did I do that?" --Family Matter's Steve Urkel

Your overlord accidently blew a mostly dry booger onto his Hewlett Packard (HP) Compaq LA2405X widescreen liquid crystal display (LCD) monitor at work.

TGIT...

(Thanks God It's Thursday) again, and another long weekend soon (thanks USA (United States of America)!). ;)

Yesterday was crazy with your old overlord's bladder. Almost all day had to (urinat/pe)e! Oh well, at least it wasn't pooping like sometimes.

Sundays...

... are becoming BUSY days and not for resting, still sick (had diarrhea this mawning), God's church, :)ness, etc. This mawning was crazy since after 6:00 AM PDT due to tech(nical) support, angry people, unexpectations, no church, no rest, etc.

"Did you watch the big cup?"

That is what your overlord thought the queen ant said due to World Cup fever going on. No, she said "Did you wash the big pot?" Oops. :D

Grr!

This old worker ant passed out after 9:37 PM PDT last night. :( How about sleeping forever? :P
