There are a couple of other good examples I can think of that didn't happen to make this list.

Daily Grind: Temperamental

Name: Vin (aka mic jack hero)
How Vin feels today: Temperamental @ 12:26:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue chugging along at this week's coding project, stop getting frustrated when something unrelated deters me from getting this programming job done.

Music Stuck in Head: Possum Kingdom / The Toadies
This song sounds way more interesting when played from a mono jack (certain aspects of song are mixed to the left and right respectively). Makes the song a little more spookier than usual.

Stuff to do today:

  • Give a birthday shout-out to Alpha
  • Rush home early today to play newly released Special Edition of Monkey Island
  • Encourage readers to visit this URL and click the big YES button
  • Cmon, help me get written into a video game
  • Stop begging

Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.Some new gameplay footage from Tales of Monkey Island surfaces online.

Looks pretty decent so far although I could have done with a few less 'yars' from LeChuck. Reminder: 6 days left to pre-order. Also, Monkey Island Special Edition comes out on July 15 (after Tales of MI - which is strange).

Xbox Live Marketplace suffers spotty service after coming back from downtime.Xbox Live Marketplace suffers spotty service after coming back from downtime.

I experienced this first-hand last night trying to purchase Sam & Max Save the World. Purchased the game at 7:30pm but wasn't able to download it until 11:30pm. Also to Microsoft's credit there were no hiccups with my points total from many multiple attempted re-downloads of the game.
