Those cretins at Best Buy charged me twice for a mouse
So first off, I have to apologize to skits for calling her last night during Buffy.
I honestly wasn't even thinking. In my defense, she answered the phone, which is something I never do when my show is on. Anyway, I called her because I found myself walking out of Best Buy* with a copy of the damned s!ms and I just wanted to harrass her. If I get hooked, it's all her fault. I got the deluxe version that has a "Sim creator" so once I get the hang of it I may try my hand at it. I'm thinking Bret and Rob need to be Sim-ified. I'll keep you posted.
Anyway, I also bought my second DVD ever. The special edition of SPEED. I looked at the goodies first and that was nice. I didn't check everything out, though. I have to say that I probably won't be replacing my video collection with DVDs. Extras are nice but FUCK! What a pain in the ass. Too many choices and clicks and maybe my player just sucks but AUGH, one mispress of a menu button and you have to start over from the beginning. I said in the Revisited recap that I like my entertainment linear and I'm even more convinced.
*I refuse to link them because I hate Best Buy, but I have a credit card there. The staff are idiots. I was double charged for a mouse last night so I have to go back this evening and get them to fix it. They better not give me any grief, lest I go all Donnie Barksdale on them. Always check your reciept before you leave the lot...

Don't apologize! lol Actually, I don't answer the phone...my son picked it up, opened it and put it up to my ear. oy! I totally hated to let you go, but I also knew you'd understand completely. hee. Must have my Buffy on Tuesday.
hee! You got the Sims! w00t! Another addict to discussion my obsession with--I'm too excited. :D
My son has Sims, and I've put a family up in his little community that he's built. The only thing bad I have to say about it is that it takes up sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much computer space that it makes everything run super-duper slow! I hope you have better luck with it then we do and I know I'll love to see Rob and Bret Sim-ified! ;)
It really is a space hog. I've decided to take it off my home PC and just use it for a timewatser at my work (I have a lot of down time). That way I won't be tempted to mess with it every waking hour!
Your player must suck, because once you have DVD, you dcon't wanna go back...
"You must buy all Keanu DVDs ~ You must buy all Keanu DVDs"
*end of subliminal message*
I like my videos too but I still have to buy a DVD player. I only got one DVD and I am afraid it is a Tobes - Cider House Rules. And I still haven't even watched it cos I'll have to sit in Joe's room and watch it on the Playstation. Still I think I'll find the time and inclination one day ;)
Forgot - I DO have the Matrix - an Xmas gift last year from my beloved - the same beloved who bought me the Ke calander a couple of days ago. The same beloved who searches Ebay for LOTR memorabilia and Tobes and Ke and (here's a new one) ELIJAH WOOD! Who happens to be 5 years older than my eldest! Eeek I am in serious trouble now! ;)
Also - not really relevant but I gotta say it anyway. Feeling nostalgic today for my punk days and that attitude (see today's blog - return of the f*ck society attitude) ...anyway was getting out old photos and thinking gosh I look young there. My eldest (Karl) said to me as I was moaning about getting old - "don't worry - you've got a Keanu thing going on" I think he meant looking young for my age! Aaaaw we hugged. Very cool he even understands what a Keanu thing is ;)
Ah I gave him a good education...
