      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 ☺️

      I think we've seen it once, so I'll let you know if I notice any plot holes and such.  Overall, I thought it was good and really loved the "muerto" character designs. 

      But I understand what you mean @HDN.  "Up" is like that too.  The first 15 minutes of the film is a masterpiece.  But after that, meh.  I don't ever bother watching the rest of it anymore.

      Yeah the part where he sings the song to his grandma is pretty emotional.

  3. I was reading the about me section of a profile and thought “wow they are similar to me,” and then immediately realized it was my own profile 😅😳

      No, it’s actually a vaporwave background I found online! ☺️ It does look familiar though.

      The movie of choice at our house on Halloween was "Psycho".  It was fun!

      I had a Happy Halloween myself, for sure. I am sure that you folks did as well. Thanks. :O)

  5. Heading to Orlando tonight for a weekend at Universal! 😁

      That's cool you can make a trip like that relatively easily! I still haven't been to Florida.

    3. Gianna

      Gianna

      @socrates63 never?!? 😮 I live just about 3 hours away, but the drive feels much shorter.

      Never ever been to Florida. Three years ago, I was scheduled to visit HBO Latin America office in Coral Gables, but it got canceled last minute.

      Being up in the northwest corner of the country, driving three hours north gets me to Vancouver BC in Canada, and three hours south is RickR's house. When my kids were younger, we'd drive 5 1/2 hours to Idaho to go to Silverwood Theme Park. It's not Universal Studios mind you, but we'd tent camp across the street and walk to the park -- fun times.

  6. I hope everyone is having a great week! Can you believe tomorrow is Friday already? 😨

      We are still getting used to the new normal here.  But overall, we have much to be thankful for.  I do love Fridays! 

  7. I'm so glad I have gotten a lot more active. I enjoy it and feel better, and now I hate missing a day of not going for a walk or bike ride!

      I'm glad you're feeling better about yourself and being active 🏆

  8. I think I am obsessed with mini M&M's 🤪

      Yeah, those peanut butter candies were my favorite of all time -- but then I became allergic to peanuts.  Sad, but what you gonna do?   Find a new favorite!

       

    3. Gianna

      Gianna

      I haven't tried either of those! I'm kind of picky. Reese's pieces are good. I like mini M&Ms, and @Justin and I always have peanut M&Ms 😄

      Agreed, Gianna. Have a great Atari Day! :O)

      I just wish there were 52 days in a calendar month 😞  No special 5200 day.  'sigh'  But everyday an Atari day?  I'm down with that.

      That would work.  Instead of "Have you played Atari today?"  you could sing "Make every day an Atari Day."  It's the same pattern.

  11. I love how cozy atari.io feels 🧸

      Perfect word to describe it. Very welcoming.

  12. 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

      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' 😁

  13. Justin and I have been playing Tennis on NES lately. 🎾 It's fun! Despite being such a simple concept it's a bit tricky.

    1. Justin

      Justin

      That was always my favorite tennis game! 

    2. RickR

      Nintendo made some really great sports games on NES.  You're right, they are so simple, but still fun and a bit tricky.  Ice Hockey, Baseball, etc. 

       

    3. HDN

      HDN

      Try the Game Boy version, you two! I think it's the better of the two, but they are both very good and very similar.

  14. Have a good week everyone ^_^

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

      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. 

       

  15. 🇺🇸 Happy Memorial Day! 

    1. Justin

      Justin

      I hope you had a great day! 🇺🇸

  16. Over the past few months I've been working out and being more active. I feel better and more energetic during the day, and now look forward to exercising 😄

    1. RickR

      RickR

      Fantastic.  You've found a silver lining in this gray period. 

      I've been riding my bike a lot more (when it doesn't rain) and trying to stay as active as I can.  You're so right, it makes me feel better. 

       

    2. Justin

      Justin

      So great to see this transformation! You are what you see yourself to be. Seeing yourself as an active, healthy person will make you feel so much better about yourself and propel you into your next transfigurations.

  17. 😲 Can you believe it is nearly July?! It feels like it was just March 2 weeks ago. Has time been going by fast for everyone as well?

      One minute it's 9pm...play a game what feels like a few minutes...next thing I know it's 2am.  D'OH!  Yep, know the feeling.

      Our little Christmas knows which Christmas stocking is hers.  I have to hide it until late Christmas Eve night while she is sleeping or she will yank it down.  

      You have a very cute Sally.  Happy Birthday, Pup!

      LOL. I love the look of the "Apple" guy on the right.  He's just like, "Whatever."  I remember those old Apple commercials.  I miss Steve Jobs' keynotes.

  20.  Happy New Year everyone! (and Merry Christmas!) A little late >_<, I ended up getting a bad cold Christmas Eve and have been resting a lot. 2 flu tests, 2 strep tests, and a covid test later it turned out to just be a bad cold (luckily!). I'm slowly starting to feel better 🤧

  22. 💥 New Addition: Super Breakout

    I got this as a birthday present ^__^  I can't wait to play it! 😄

      Perfect!  Happy birthday.

      Super Breakout is honestly one of the all-time best 2600 games. To this day I can play it for hours. Warlords too, especially with a group of people gathered around the TV set in the living room.

    3. Atari 5200 Guy

      Atari 5200 Guy

      Awesome!!  That was my first game when I got an Atari for Christmas as a child.  Mine was on the 5200, though, but Super Breakout is Super Breakout no matter what.

  23. I love when I think it's Tuesday and then realize it's actually Wednesday 😄 one day closer to the weekend!

    1. RickR

      RickR

      Wednesday already???  It's trash night!  Time to take out the trash.

      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.
