Conspiracy Theorists…

So at least one person has written me this week asking why there was no softball update on Wednesday. They made some sort of obscure reference to the fact that we probably got spanked or something and I was too scared to talk about it. I had to tell that person, ‘just because what you’re saying is true doesn’t make you a psychic or anything there Dr. Phil.’ I mean a person watches one episode of the Ghost Whisperer and then just happens to make a lucky guess – what do you want us to put you in the Psychic Friends Hall of Fame or something?

So, for those keeping score at home, yes we got crushed in softball this week 28-6. I am sticking with my theory that the other team had dudes dressed as girls (we play coed) and that karma is eventually going to spank those guys right back. Anyway, our record is now 1-2. I may have to quit making the weekly softball update because it is just getting depressing.

On what should have been a happier note, Halo 3 was released this week. For those of you not intimately familiar with my day to day life, my wife gave me a copy of Halo 3 for Christmas last year. No you didn’t read that wrong, she pre-ordered the game on Amazon thinking it would be out soon and when it did come out she would get it for me. So now, here I am, waiting the entire year for one of last year’s Christmas gifts and what do you think happens? That’s right, we get an email from Amazon on the day of the Halo 3 release saying that it was shipping that day and we should have it no later than the 1st of October – an ENTIRE WEEK after it’s release. I know Amazon can do better than this. My wife got every copy of Harry Potter from Amazon and every time it arrived on the day of the release with big letters stamped on the front ‘DO NOT DELIVER BEFORE X’. Needless to say, I’ve had better Christmas gifts and I am officially putting a curse on

Stay tuned for a new series next week – I am going to start commenting on the progress (or lack of) I am making in restoring the old car sitting in my garage. Maybe a little peer pressure from you guys will help motivate me to get it on the road… or something…

Have a great weekend!


MK Spray - Greetings all, this is Mrs. Sprayberry. I’m Brian’s much smaller, but decidedly better half. I usually don’t get involved in Brian’s on-line escapades, but I feel that I need to jump in on this topic. It appears that Brian has neglected some important details about his belated Christmas gift. For starters, I originally placed the order for a special edition copy of Halo 3. This order was secured for early delivery. Brian asked me to change the order to an “un-special” edition because he doesn’t want another metal game case. (Apparently he has a bit of OCD when it comes to his X-box cabinet) When I changed the order, I lost the early delivery option, despite the fact that I paid extra for expedited shipping. So basically, amazon is a scapegoat for Brian’s need for neatly stacked plastic game cases. As soon as I found out the order would be shipped late, I offered to go out and buy him a copy. He declined. I think he prefers to hold onto his anger at amazon and Harry Potter fans.
I think we can all use this as a learning experience:
1 – Amazon had to prioritize. It is clearly more dangerous to delay delivery of gratification to lovers of literary lore. We, in contrast to gamers, don’t have blogs as outlets of frustration. We will simply riot at Barnes & Noble.
2 – If you are ever in the unfortunate position of selecting a gift for Brian, just get him cash.
Mrs. Spray
