HALO! 3! LAUNCH DAY! (Y_Y)

Yes... Bill and I took Tuesday off to play Halo 3. I believe vacation day well worth spent. We
(Becka, Bill, and I) got our Burger King Halo 3 meal and were good to go for the midnight launch.
The GameStop we were @ had over 100 preorders and the was pretty decent. It was DWARFED
by the mammoth crowd around the corner @ the other GameStop (Go fig. two GameStops in the
same mall). They had over 400 pre orders. We made sure to stop off @ the grocery store to stock
up on the snack-age. Bill and I gamed from midnight till 4-something P.M.

We came... We Saw... We Conquered...

We mowed down Halo 3 on Legendary (the hardest level) in 15 hours... and boo were we tired
afterwards.

enjoy the fun-filled-super-nerdy-pics

p.s. I also had spread the Halo love buy drawing Master Chief saying something positive for
the kiddies.
p.p.s. Yes Becka and I rocked the Halo 3 gear @ Codonics before the Midnight launch.

Rochester Road Trippin

Loooong weekend of driving... eating... moving... eating... moving... and more driving. As
usual our road trips include lots and lots of good food. You'll notice a lot of pics of us eating Winking
To ensure this move-in is successful I have assembled an elite team of experts.

Special Team's Roster
+ Leah: the Movee
+ Becka: the Sleeper/ Organizer
+ Bill: the Extra Back
+ Me: Project Manager/Driver/Bank

Saturday:
We crammed everything in the car and had just enough space for 4 people. But before we
could hit the road hard, we needed to make a special stop. Yep you guessed it, we needed
McDonalds! Mmmmm hash-browns and juice the breakfast of champions. Along the way
we decided to see how many different license plates we can see on the road (Reference
below: List O Plates). It was fun and prevented me from speeding away. We hit the ground
running when we got to Eastman. We moved everything from the car to her room and had
time to goto Target Twice before dinner @ Dino's. Mmmm Dinosaur BBQ is a must @
Rochester. After dinner, we just made it back to pick up Morris and Leah's stuff from long
term storage. Then we unpacked and organized the night away.

Sunday/Monday(am):
The morning started off good with Lindsay Lohan in "Just My Luck" Winking We first went to The
Spot (FYI: it was a Chevy dealership before it became coffee shop) to get some b-fast. Yum
a Mike Sandwich hit the spot (no pun intended). After we filled our bellies, we were ready
for more shopping @ Target, Parkleigh, and Wegmans. Bill and I had a fun time building
the shelves and organizer we just got from Target. We got everything done before dinner @
P.F. Changs. P.F.'s was fun. And yes... we conquered the Great Wall of Chocolate Winking Since
we got some beer @ Wegmens earlier, we had to pick up a bottle opener at Target. This
brought the Target trip counter to 4, which is on par for typical move-ins. The trip home was
pretty uneventful. Everybody passed out towards the later legs of the trip. We made it home
safe and sound around 1:40am-ish... and yes Bill drove home after that... ug.

No speeding tickets Wahoo! SUCCESS!
