Anyone do anything cool or acomplish anything while the forums were down?

The main feat I can say I did was finished off most of my pile of DVDS from Acen and a few other places.

Hmmm...

Well I managed to poison all the weeds and cut down and poison all the unwanted growing trees in my parents back yard ( which is half the size of a standard foot ball field ). I spent most of it doing yard work for my parents while I was visiting them over the weekend.

I also took the time to sit down and watch 2 movies I've been meaning to watch for awhile now ( Up and District 9 ) and can say I enjoyed both of them ^_^

Lets see...got sunburned and hoping it settles into a tan instead of peeling ( crossing my fingers and toes ), as well as got myself a swimsuit for the summer so I can go and enjoy swimming once I get a pool pass~

I took my van to get fixed. Found out the computer died. 2 shops specializing in electrical problems didn't want to touch it, so I had to get it towed to a dealership. This is going to be expen$ive! :(

At least the forums are back. :clap:

Watched videos on YouTube, played on Gaia and Neo, went to work, and spent time sitting out on the side of the road with a blown-out tire.

Basically a boring few days.

I worked, watched the Hawks games, wished I was there with my dad (he brought me home a Stanley Cup towel), worked some more, went to a friend's birthday bbq, decorated a cake with my new cake decorating toys, worked some more, played Bayonetta, went to my family's memorial day bbq, worked and did some mod things on the Youma forums and that's about it?
