  1. 🎃 Halloween is quickly approaching! Do you have any plans?

      People here have plans to trick or treat! In my opinion that's not a very good idea. I think I'll just stay inside, maybe watch the Shining or something, and eat snacks 🙂

      I agree, that's not a good idea.  "The Shining" is a great choice!  The outdoor scenes of that movie were filmed here in Oregon on Mt. Hood.  I may have to watch that one too.  Remember those creepy twins?

      I bet there will be trick-or-treaters around here this year. Not terribly smart as Gianna said. At least a lot of them would be wearing masks already and they won't be staying too long at each place? Still, not a good idea at all.

      Last Halloween while driving with my dad to Game Stop (Luigi"s Mansion 3 pre-order) we saw this plague doctor costume and thought it was a pretty amazing trick-or-treat outfit. Little did we know that... well, you know.

      This Halloween we'll probably do what we do every Halloween. My grandma's birthday is on the 30th of October and we go over to their house to celebrate on Halloween. This year she's turning 80 years old.

      When I get home (if I have my stuff back by then) I'm going to play some Luigi's Mansion. Typically, October is filled with those games, but this year because I don't have any of the systems that those games are on I have been missing out. Maybe play some Haunted House on the 2600 as well.

  2. Have a good week everyone ^_^

      You too, Gianna. Thanks for the greeting. :O)

      Hello, world! It's Monday. You too, Gianna~~

    3. RickR


      I pretty much have Mondays off for the rest of the year since I didn't consume all my vacation at work due to COVID and being stuck at home.  Today is the first Monday off, and I'm lovin' it. 


  3. Wow, I wish you the best. It sounds like you made the right choice.
  4. I'm in a Pac Man mood!

  5. A little late to the party 😖 My score (so far) is 56,600! Hopefully I'll be able to improve it before the 15th!
  6. It is Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great day, and has had a good weekend so far!

      We get the commercials for Culver's on cable TV, but there is none here. 

      There are two In-n-Out Burgers here in Oregon.  They are slowly migrating in.  The closest one to me is 40 miles south.  Makes for a nice trip once in a while when you feel like cranking up some music and driving. 

      I got combo #3, no onions.  It's a burger (with lettuce and tomato), fries, and drink.  Price = $6.25.  No tax. 

      Interesting to me:  The drive through line is always 45 minutes or so.  I parked and walked in.  Ordered at the counter "to-go" and was out in 5 minutes.

      Ooh that looks good!

      we have culvers here in Florida, not many, but more are popping up! One of my favorite places ☺️

  7. Super breakout and peanut m&ms are the best combo.

      I need that game in my collection and those m&ms in my stomach. Peanut M&Ms are the best! And my Wii emulator thinks Super Breakout is simply "Superb.BIN"

    3. DegasElite


      I can see how they would be a great combination. :O)

      I'm a Reese's baby myself.  BUT...peanut M&Ms, buttered popcorn, AND Super Breakout are the bomb.  Just sayin' 😁

  8. Welcome! I love Pac Man and Space Invaders!
  9. FL weather is a bit kooky. It can be sunny one minute, storming the next and then sunny again immediately after as if it had never stormed!
  10. Yes, it was a huge bummer, especially because I was so excited to check Volcano Bay out. I'm trying to get a refund. While heading back to the parking garage there was other families heading back as well who were rejected also.
  11. I spent this weekend in Orlando and went to Universal as well as Islands of Adventure, and went to Top Golf for the first time! I should have known this was a really bad time to go to a theme park, because Saturday after arriving at Universal the park reached capacity about a half hour later. Rides were about 100-200 minute wait times, some even more, and they sold out of fast passes. In total, I went on 5 rides and was there from 11am - 7:15 or so at night. Sunday I tried going to Volcano Bay and arrived an hour after opening but unfortunately they had reached capacity already. I got on a waitlist but wasn't texted to enter the park until 2 hours before they closed. By then I had moved on with my day. It was disappointing spending money on fast passes and a ticket to be told I couldn't enter. Anyway, I also went to Top Golf for the first time! It was really fun! The food is good as well. I love all that there is to do in Orlando. I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! Donut holes, with a syringe of raspberry sauce and chocolate sauce to insert in the middle.
  12.  Posting from Universal in Orlando ☺️

      Have fun!  Ride that Harry Potter "flying broom" ride for me. 

    2. Gianna


      Unfortunately wait times ranged from 2-3 hours for a lot of rides. I ended up being there from about 11-7 and only got on 5 rides the entire day 😔 fast passes sold out first thing and then were available again for $200 a person.. no thanks. Universal and islands of adventure reached maximum capacity at like 1pm.

  13. Have you guys seen the cute Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch Nintendo is releasing to celebrate SMB’s 35th Anniversary?

    @TrekMD I have not, but I just found this. kind of interesting! https://ghosts-of-retailers-past.fandom.com/wiki/Zody's
  15. I can barely handle anything spicy lol. Sometimes even mild seems too spicy for me! 😦😓 If you've ever been to Millers Ale House you have probably seen their "Zingers", which are just chicken fingers tossed in sauce. I enjoy those tossed in mild sauce and dipped in ranch or blue cheese!
  16. I hope everyone has a great week ahead of them! The weekend always flies by.

    1. RickR


      Weekends are too short! 

      Thank you Gianna, you have a good week too. 

    2. HDN


      Have a great week! I start school tomorrow.

      I hope you have a good week too @Gianna!!

    @Duckie25 I completely agree! 🙌👏
  20. Here is the Sprite that replaced it:
  21. I'm not sure if this is similar, but it is orange flavored. McDonald's had HiC Orange Lavaburst, which is basically orange pop. They were (as far as I know) like the only place to carry it. A few years ago they decided to discontinue it and it was replaced with some tropical flavored Sprite. What the heck. The HiC was popular, and even my dad, who never drinks things like that, loved it and would sometimes make trips there just for the HiC. He was really bummed when it was discontinued, as I remember a lot of people were when it was announced. Ah, and now I'm thinking about French fries.
