I kind of dropped off DW for a bit. First it was the Steam Summer Sale that took me away. I didn't buy a lot of new games as a lot of the games seemed to be older ones that I either had no intention of playing or already owned. I was able to get the Alan Wake bundle, Civ V GOTY and I semi-impulse bought Saints Row 3. I wasn't going to get it, but then I played a bit of it and it was so hilariously stupid that it was good, plus the price was just too good. A regularly priced $60 game for $12 (and the DLCs) was too hard to ignore. It's also co-op, so my boyfriend had a lot of fun playing that.

Which leads into my poor graphics card... I started to get those crazy artifacts on my screen and was sad that my card was dying. It's not terribly old (GeForce GT 9x series), but not super new. It was just the worst time for it. With school coming up I don't exactly have the funds to spend on a new card. I popped a really old Raedon in that couldn't even handle HD movies fullscreen. After unsuccessfully finding any decent cards in back-to-school sales I looked at trying to fix mine. I'd heard of people baking their cards in the oven and having them work after. It's supposed to be a quick fix for re-soldering the circuits. I watched the Youtube vids and figured I had nothing to lose as it was already busted and useless. Let me say it was really weird baking my graphics card. XD I was so scared that I'd over bake it or under bake it. There was a little bit of a weird smell, but no smoke or anything. I let it cool, put it all back together, popped it back into my case and prayed. It worked! I couldn't believe that it actually worked! XD BUT it was running REALLY hot... We were in the middle of a bad heatwave, so I had to still limit my time online. :/ With a little help from my boyfriend we later fixed it and found out the fan wasn't spinning at it's best to keep it cool. So, now it seems to be working like before. :D

And then the Olympics started and sucked me away for 2 weeks! XD

There was also some family crap and issues in between, but they're not as interesting.

Olympic gifs :D )

Clearly I'm not cut out to be a writer or anything of that sort... I forgot all about this. >_>  <_< And I  just re-read my "intro" post and I sound like I was heavily sedated or something. Maybe I  was...  XD Who knows? 

I noticed I also contradicted the fuck out of myself too lol. No opinions?  Me?  What the fuck was I on??  Srsly... Especially since most of it was an opinion... -_-;;;;;


Still watching Game of Thrones even if I am a couple episodes behind... I got behind reading the books, so I'm actually pretty on par with the series which is kinda weird. I'll read a bit, then watch it and then get horrible deja vu getting confused with the parts I read vs. watched hah.

I admit I watched American Idol semi-regularly. I skipped most of the boring parts with the judges and Ryan chatting. I didn't watch most of the results show or just skipped right to the end. I mostly watched it because Phil reminded me of some musically inclined friends I used to know and I was curious how far he could go. :P

I'm completely and utterly biased when it comes to The Avengers movie. Yes, I'm a Joss Whedon fan. Yes, I love crossovers. And yes, I have crazy thoughts that the last showdown fight was Joss' way of filming the Angel apocalypse that never was. XD And I'm super excited that the blu-ray/dvd combo is set for an end of September release!  :D

I'm also excited for the return of Suits and Franklin and Bash this summer!

I have a huge game backlog and with Steam's summer sale on the horizon I know it's only going to get worse... Been playing Diablo 3 like crazy! Although, I am a little bored with the replay value and having a broken AH isn't much fun. I'm hoping this next patch fixes some the issues. I still love it and will continue to play the crap out of it though. ;) It's been leaving me little time to play League of Legends, but then that's not always a bad thing. I play 1-2 games a day. Depends on the free champs tbh. I haven't played WoW since I mentioned it last heh. I played more Rift than it. I think I'm all MMORPG'd out. The timesinks and grinding for the amount of entertainment that I get out of it doesn't feel worth it. Not to mention the money... I  don't mind paying, but it feels a bit much to pay +$50 for the game itself and then $10-15 monthly fee on top of it. I've been paying playing for years and this structure has always irked me a bit. *shrugs* I know some game will be released that I want to play and I'll do it again though. :P

And every once in awhile I go through a Kpop phase. Been listening to BIG BANG's Blue. Kind of surprised me.  It's catchy and relaxing. :) I  don't get involved with the fandom and just watch/listen from my corner here on the interwebs.

That's it. Not super exciting, but the best I  can do at 9 in the morning. And it's not like anyone really cares or reads this lol.
