So now that season two of The Walking Dead is over, I needed another show to watch. I heard good things about Game of Thrones so I decided to give it a shot. I think the first episode had like a pair of boobs per every five minutes of viewing ratio. Couple that with the medieval/fantasy setting, and I didn’t stand a chance. I was hooked to the max. My wife is less impressed with the boob ratio, but she watches with me. We just finished episode seven and it is a freaking good show. Of course, this is my subjective opinion, so let me correct my last statement, I think this is a freaking awesome show. Sorry, no youtube examples of the boob ratio, but the show is more than just boobs. Pretty engaging and they do a good job of ending each episode on a cliff hanger to keep you wanting more. So that’s pretty much my take on it for now.
Greg wants YOU to vote.
While waiting for May 15th (D3 day), I’ve been taking a look at other upcoming games one of which is Guild Wars 2. It looks pretty sweet actually. I remember having a good time with Guild Wars 1 when it first came out. Me and a group of friends started up this guild, JLO (Justice League Offsprings, crappy name, but I just wanted the JLO tag) and played ranked pvp matches every Wednesday. We didn’t have enough members initially so we climbed to rank 200 hundred using the henchman, Stephan. Then real people started joining the guild and we got to around rank 50-ish (don’t remember the exact rank) out of thousands of guilds for a brief moment. I remember we had a guildie from Finland or something and he got up at 4 or 5 in the morning to run those ranked matches with us. That dude was dedicated. But as more and more people started to play the game, and as the talent pool got deeper and deeper, we started to lose more often and our guild faded away into insignificance. Ah the nostalgia brag. But yea, Guild Wars 2 looks good. If I do decide to try it out, I might have to not sleep at all in order to balance the strip, my kid, D3, and GW 2.
Here’s a youtube video of some guy listing his reasons to play GW2. Kind of old, but I like it cause he gives respect to World of Warcraft:
Results for : Who thinks a fist bump can be taken back? (A New Neighbor part 13) 196 votes
88: I don’t. Fist bumps are a binding contract between true bros.
55: I do, but only at the cost of a severed hand.
33: I do, because fist bumps are for tards.
20: I don’t, because they are ratified in the constitution and to take one back, requires an amendment.
Looks like fist bumps are a binding contract. I actually like the amendment answer the best cause it’s so ridiculous. But yea, thanks everyone for voting.
Well, I’ve mentioned this a couple of times, but one more time can’t hurt, I’ll be a dad around mid April. A thought that had me pretty terrified at first. I was pretty cool with the pregnancy up until my wife’s obgyn gave us her estimate of the due date. I think it finally hit home (yea, I guess seeing my wife’s pregnant belly gradually ballooning over the course of the past eight months wasn’t ringing any bells). I’m going to be a dad. I couldn’t sleep for a couple of nights as all my insecurities came rising out of the woodwork. Will I make a good dad, will I have the patience to put up with my baby’s fussiness, will I be able to pitch in enough to support the household financially. Also some dumb stuff , like hoping he doesn’t inherit my laziness, or my slightly longer left middle finger, or my one crooked tooth. But it’s been a week since then, and I think I’ve settled down a bit. Now I’m starting to get excited once again. I will strive to be a cool but an a$$hole dad. Messing with them and such. For example, two of my favorite parenting videos on youtube:
Well, long story short, I’ll be knocking out my Thursday updates indefinitely as I settle into fatherhood. The strip will update Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting April 1st. Sorry if some of you come here exclusively for the Gregcrafts (not sure if there are any, but if there are, sorry once again.) Other than that, I guess that’s it. Thanks for reading everyone. Oh, one more thing, if you know anyone who might enjoy reading the strip, please help me out by referring Greg to them. Trying to build on the readership, making progress, but it’s been a very gradual process. Thanks a ton.
