Well folks, we all knew it was only a matter of time. Yes the evil sharks of Microsoft have told me “no more online for Sheridan”. Friends, family, reader, my xbox was banned from xbox live for “failure to comply with Terms of Service”. What this means is Microsoft has turned my console into a one man offline deal, not good for someone who plays online constantly!

It bugs me because my brother and I play online together a lot, and if it weren’t for that, we wouldn’t get nearly as much time to talk and just chill, and that seems more and more important as I grow older. Family is super important to me so this was a pretty bad situation to find myself in.

So what does that mean? Well, in short, I needed to get a new xbox, so I grabbed one used from Cash Converters which was still a purchase I didn’t want to have to make, but as I said my bro and I are tight again, and that’s something I don’t want to change, so “shit happens”, just deal!

What does everyone else think. Is Microsoft justified? I do have a modded console, what’s your take on all of this?


Telus “Announces” Storm 2????


Telus advertising the new "unreleased" Storm 2

Well, we knew it was coming at some point to Canada. And while the exact date is still unknown, Blacks photography, a retailer for TELUS in Canada has let the cat out of the bag regarding the BlackBerry Storm2 on TELUS. Posted on their website for all to see (and still yet to be removed) sits the BlackBerry Storm2 9550. At this time information is slim and TELUS has yet to actually announce it, but with their retailers posting images of it I’m quite certain this will come sooner rather then later, since they are already out there (props to JaredtheTelusGuy in the CB forums for also posting some live shots of one). Any Canadians been waiting for a BlackBerry Storm2?


Halloween How you’ve Changed

So, as many of you know I LOVE Halloween. Every year I have fun planning a costume, carving pumpkins, and scaring trick or treaters. This year however I have fully realized just how much has changed in 3 short years. My halloween was spent watching TV during the day, and going to a party Saturday night, which was alright, but again, not drinking makes for a dull party. I used to do Halloween in style, back when we had the old house, I would make it a haunted delight. This year I didn’t even have a string of lights. Sometimes I really miss home!

I DID however get to watch Nightmare Before Christmas, like always, a tradition I am glad has not yet left as well. It was a bonus too since Marc had never seen it before, always glad to introduce another NBC fan 🙂

Back to school this week 😦 but I made a good bit of money over reading week, and still managed to have some fun so BONUS. Now it’s time to do some serious running around this week to get some of the chores done I was too lazy to do last week!

Till’ Next Time
