While I prepare my body for the upcoming Xbox One launch, I decided it was time to finish out my Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 4.
The final achievement
popped tonight after an epic
boosting session with Ty, Wyndsock and Billszoverdu. I'm sure I'll be back to finish off the DLC achievements, but for now I'm 100% complete.
Having completed all the achievements I care to
in Call of Duty: Ghosts, I decided to take the very last of my Xbox 360 accessories to Gamestop to trade in. On arrival, I was informed the $10 upgrade only applied if I purchased the game FROM GAMESTOP. Distraught, I spied an Xbox One controller on the shelf and opted to trade in my crap for that instead. I'm now the proud owner of an Xbox One controller
with no console to use it on. It doesn't even have PC drivers yet, so it's essentially a $60 paperweight till Friday. After confirming the $10 upgrade conspiracy extended to my local Microsoft Store as well, I finally learned Amazon doesn't give a crap where you got the game from. I'm now short just the Xbox One console and my digital copy of BF4 to keep me warm at night, while my Call of Duty upgrade is destined for a quick cheevo raping followed by an eBay auction.
Today was leaf cleanup day, or at least my attempt at it. Lila assisted by giggling every time I aimed the leaf blower in her direction, and wandering off occasionally to give me worried parent heart attacks.
Eventually she bored of my work, and asked to ride my motorcycle. Technically she said "Lilas motorcycle" which I interpreted to mean she wanted to go for one last ride
before storing it for the winter.
As I have written about in the past, and continue to freely admit here, I took her on a trip down to the end of my street and back as she repeated "go fast."
Being as how Lisa never reads any of these updates (or anyone at all for that matter) I fear no reprisals. Oh yeah, my Xbox One shipped
today as well, so that was nice.
With so many babies popping out lately, I thought it was high time to have a fucking baby party. Sadly, none of these babies could show up on the same day, so it wound up being more
of two baby gatherings instead of a party. On the plus side, I bought way too much meat and cheeses so I could handily eat myself out of the depression from the whole debacle.
In both gatherings, Lucy alternated between sleep and crying, while Lila promptly became hyper and over emotional alternating between joy and tantrums.
This worked to confuse and distract the other babies and kept the chaos relatively controlled. I'd like to say I trained my daughters to perform the extremes, but in my heart I know
Lisa awoke this morning with the unwavering desire to visit Bronners
. Since it didn't involve sitting in front of the TV all day, I was all for it.
As it was Lila and Lucys first visit, I made sure to take everything slow so they could fully soak in the madness that is a store dedicated to Christmas. Lila had no problem gawking at
everything for the better part of an hour, and surprisingly only touched a few things. I credit the shock of the experience overriding her toddler need to destroy.

, I stole Lisas phone upgrade to get my hands on the Lumia 900.
Apparently 19 months is the eligibility length for a new device, because my 1520 lust
just got a dose of pre-order medicine
I'm also saving $30/month now with the contract renewal which I won't be complaining about either. After confirming several times Lisa has no desire for a more modern phone, I stole her upgrade yet again
and plan to ultimately eBay it yet again to finance the slightly smaller Lumia 929
I justify this technolust with the knowledge that the monthly phone bill has device subsidy built-in, and by not upgrading a device when eligible I'm simply giving free money to AT&T.
The chance to play with an absurdly large 6" phone is just a side benefit I'm forced to endure while maximizing my savings.
