Totally Impressed with the New Battlefield Game

My boyfriend loves his Playstation. That is his number one form of entertainment – well, number 1 after sex. Let’s be real. So, he buys all the new games as soon as they come out and he plays online against other people for a lot of the games. The new Battlefield game is one of those that you play online and he has had his ass glued to the couch since that game came out last week.

I have sat and watched him play a few of the games with teams he just fell in with. There are some scary good players out there, people. These guys are probably snipers in real life and just play this game for practice. Anyway, I am totally impressed with the new Battlefield game. It is so realistic it is scary. There is a lot of detail on everything, from the rain splattering on the ground and making puddles to the way you have to sight the enemy and lead the target before firing. It is very real and definitely not for little kids.

There is the new Call of Duty coming out next week. I know my boyfriend will be one of the first to buy that game, even though the new Playstation doesn’t come out yet.When the PS4 comes out, I know he will be buying that, too.

I don’t understand who coordinated the release dates of all these new games and the Playstation 4, but I sure hope the new PS4 will play the older versions of games. We have a shit load of money sunk into the PS3 versions of games and I don’t want to buy all those same games over again just to be able to use the new PS4. But I can see why the makers of them would want you to do that. When each game costs anywhere from $50 to $80, the game makers are rolling in dough from guys like my boyfriend.

Time for a Fresh Look

All this stress in my life is taking its toll. I need some retail therapy, but I don’t fell like chopping for clothes. I think I will go to the mall and find some new sheets and a comforter or quilt or something to give my bedroom a fresh look. I might even buys some paint and put some color back into my life. I am sick of looking at plain white walls all the time. It is time for a fresh new look!

My bedroom has been green, with some touches of pink and burgundy for at least 2 years. Although that color combination is very restful and soothing, it has become boring to me. I think I want to find something that is cream, tan and gold, with something else for an accent color – maybe a little bit of dark red or dark green. I will have to see what the bedspread and quilt patterns are like at the department before I make up my mind.

Who Buys Cars for Christmas Gifts?

What the fuck is up with all these car commercials showing a new car parked in the driveway on Christmas morning with a huge red bow on top? How many people in this country really think that giving someone a car is an appropriate Christmas gift? How many people can even afford a gift like that?

Well, I am sick of watching these fucking commercials. They are depressing! 98% of the people watching these car commercials are not the least bit interested in buying a new car for someone as a Christmas gift. So why are the car dealers making the rest of us poor slobs watch these depressing and irrelevant commercials?

It seems to me that the money spent on these commercials are a total waste. The people are likely to buy a car for a Christmas are probably not even watching TV to see the commercials. Why not target that tiny bit of the population by name and address and give them some other kind of direct advertisement? Like, let them drive one of the cars for a week and send them a gift basket or something? I hate the commercials and I hate the idea of someone buying a car at Christmas. Its just not something in the realm of my possibilities.

 

 

Online Ordering Sucks Sometimes

This just happened to me so I’m still a little pissed off about trying to order something online. I’m checking my email on I see an ad in the sidebar. Now, most of the time I don’t even look at those damn things, but this time it was an ad for something I had just looked at last week and wanted to buy it but decided to wait until after Christmas on the chance that it would go on sale. Plus I didn’t want to overspend at Christmas so buying something for myself didn’t really fit into the budget.

Now, I know that these stores use cookies to track what I’m looking at and I’m used to seeing ads targeted just to me and what I’ve been looking at on the internet. What these fools don’t realize is that most of the time if I looked at something and did not buy it right then, I have a good reason. Most of the time it’s not really what I wanted or I found it somewhere else at a better price or a different color or something.

Anyway, this ad says that the item is half off, so that made it more attractive. I’m still concerned about my Christmas budget, but if this is half off now, it will probably be sold out after Christmas and then I won’t be able to get it at all. So I decided to go ahead and buy it and I clicked on the ad. It took me to the stores site, where I have an account. I clicked to put it in the shopping cart and they gave me a screen that says are you sure you want to check out already? We have a lot more stuff for you to look at and buy while you are here! But I don’t want anything else – I just want to order this one thing. Then I go to a screen that asks for my email and password. Of course, it says the password is wrong.

When all is logged in, it asks for my delivery address and my billing address and fuck that. I have an account already set up there – all that info should be saved and all I have to do is click. I’m not fucking typing all that crap in there every time I order something. So I’m pissed off and what I barely wanted in the first now looks like just a fucking hassle. So I quit the whole checkout process and didn’t buy it. I don’t want it that fucking bad.

Stocking Up on Candles

Last year I had a big box of candles in the basement and i decided that they were just taking up space and going to waste. So I started taking a candle out of the box every time I went down to do my laundry and set it in my bathroom to burn it. I love a burning candle in the bathroom – especially when I take a nice long bath and spend an hour pampering myself.

So, today I was doing laundry and went to get my candle and this is the last one! I had no idea that I had gone through the entire box of candles already! I really need to get to the store and buy some more candles. I wish someone would put candles on sale so I could stock up!
