Back at ya, boss!

4-day weekend for me, not leaving the farm if I can help it. The fam and I are heading up the hill to my parents' house for thanksgiving dinner, very low-key. Will definitely watch football... because there won't be much else to do.

Black friday is a madhouse I prefer to avoid. Aside from some online shopping, I'll be staying put. I need to save a bundle on a nintendo switch system and a pile of games. The boy has staked his entire christmas wish-list on acquiring one. But it'll be a chore to find a deal and be sure that it's the new revision with vastly improved battery life. Most of the black-friday bundles I see are the older, gimpy version.

Took a half day today. Not going back until Monday. Hunting again tomorrow morning. An old friend coming down to visit by sometime in the afternoon. The rest of the long weekend should casually involve eating, drinking and shooting. Should be a nice time!

I am in the market for a Switch/Lite also and unfortunately Nintendo came out and said no hardware discounts this year. I can’t even find one where the store tosses in a flash drive or gift card for free.

Yeah Nintendo knows they don't need to discount to move units.. crafty japs! Might find some game deals or 2 for 1 or something but that's about it.

Kids looooooooove the switch. I've had one since launch and I've always thought it was just OK since none of the games really appeal to me.. but the kids are in love with it. I need to get the updated one at some point, as ours has been beat up.

Thankgiving was fine, only had 2 arguments with the wife over stupid stuff, so that was good. Got to watch at least part of all the football games, also nice. Family dinner was fine, not great this year.. they went heavy on "fancy" sides instead of staples (carrots, mashed potatoes, green beans, etc), but the turkey was smoked and was very good.

Probably will buy a few things I don't need on sale today, but no plans to get anything at the moment.

Had a good T Day, didn’t eat too too much. Fell asleep watching Toy Story 4 for the third time with the family last night. Got up early to chase a crazy good Black Friday special on a hunting rifle at Cabela’s, only to have them sell out of it before they got to us. :mad: Got the chainsaw I wanted, came home and went online to find anything close to what we missed out on. Low and behold, I go to Cabela’s website and they have a fully equivalent version (with a different camo finish) for the same price, with the same rebate. Heck, if I had known that would be available online, no way I’d have been up early, waiting in line for a couple hours like that. Oh, well. The outcome was just as good in the end. :D(y).

Walmart had a Switch console-game-accessory bundle going for a bit, but I missed out on it.

I bought the Switch Lite at full price last night, but the games were only $30 at Target.
*checks Target.com for local store pick-up*
Motherfucker, how do you not have a fucking copy of Breath of the Wild in stock!?

That was the only damn game they had in stock by the time I got there on TG and thankfully is the one my daughter wanted. How the hell is Zelda still full price 2 years later?!?

I know, right? The released a new LoZ title two months ago, damn it.

If it was the Mario Kart 8 bundle, be glad you missed it. It was the original variant with shitty battery life. You want the one that has the red-only background on the box, an (-01) model number, and an XKW serial number.

Fuck, wish I had seen this earlier. Got one for the niece and already shipped it off.

Snow-2019.jpg

Took the kids a couple hours away this weekend for a snow day, not a ton of snow (damn you CA), but enough for us to toss a few snowballs at each other and slid around hurting our butts for a few hours before retreating to the comfortable 70° weather at home.

I didn't realize snow was so close, it'd be fun to do a beach morning and then snow afternoon all in the same day.

Would anyone have a source that has the Mandolorian available to watch? And no, I don't want to get Disney+. I had a pirated source, but it looks like Uncle Walt put the end to that.

Yeah, you can get a free trial week on Roku if I recall. Should be plenty of time to binge it.

Happy early new years everyone! Anyone have any fun plans?

We're all old and sick, so likely just staying home and eating a nice dinner and drinking. We're going on a 3-day cruise is a couple of days, so saving our wild partying for that.

Yeah, old and sick as well. Just a quiet evening with the family, likely watch a movie or two. I’ll probably indulge a little, but nothing too over the top.

Happy New Year! Went to early dinner and am now curled up with a bottle of scotch.

Wife is making me go hunt down a copy of the magazine with our dog on the cover tomorrow...

Signed up for Disney+ just to watch the last two episodes of Mandolorian....I really didn't want to resort to that, but I'll be cutting them loose once the free trial expires.

Yeah, best SW in a long ass time for sure, and mostly consistent. I enjoyed them all, but I can admit there were maybe 1 or 2 'off' episodes all things considered, but that's not too bad.

New Years was fine.. we were in bed by 9:30PM lol. Did the East Coast ball drop and put the kids to bed and just went.. is there any reason to stay up? And we nope'd out. New Years day was mostly just cleaning shit and getting ready for our trip.

3-day Mexico cruise was fun.. though damn if I'm not getting old. We went for my friends 40th bday. It's getting hard to drink hard and party hard for more than 1 day in a row. I feel like my body needs a full day to recover. We did Ensenada and it was fun, lots of tequila.. but no one died or got arrested, so that's a win. Came back yesterday early morning and my body is still aching back at work.

Also, we found a guy to make these for us:
