Sorry.. but the virginity went A LONG time ago!! LOL!

.. ok.

So my cousin GG :: not to be confused with DD :: did something extradordinarily nice.

But she’s like that so it really isn’t THAT much of a surprise.


See, we Italians have a Christmas Eve tradition. It’s called the Feast of the Seven Fishes and basically what happens is we all get together and eat seven different kinds of fish.

Except me.

I don’t like fish so I would usually bring something that us non-fish eaters could eat. One time I even stopped at the chinese food place but that’s another story for another time.

Anyway.. so we used to all meet up at my grandmother’s house but since she died, my aunt :: who lives about an hour and a half away :: decided to have it at her house.

I told my mom that three hours of travel time would seriously impact all my Xmas Eve chores :: like oh.. I don’t know… SHOPPING? :: and that we wouldn’t be making the dinner.

The word didn’t get out to GG and so concerned that all the kids in my family would be receiving envelopes, she made sure that Spaz would have one so he wouldn’t feel left out.

That’s the kind of person she is.. always thoughtful.. always compassionate.. so not like me!! LOL!!

Seriously tho, I was so impressed that she did that. Especially because my own mom didn’t get them anything. But that’s another story for another time.

Anyway.. we wound up seeing my mother and brother this past Sunday and it was then that she gave me the card for Spaz.

The only problem is that I couldn’t give Spaz the card without having something to give to Bubba. Because really, that just isn’t fair and it just didn’t sit right with me.

Sometimes adults have to make those kinds of decisions.

I opened the card figuring that it was like, 5 bucks or something and I would just go buy them each something with it.. like the Lindt’s chocolate truffles.

But it turned out to be a 15.00 gift card to Game Stop.

Now there isn’t anything I can do with that to split it between them and I couldn’t life with myself if I pocketed it for me so I figured I’d do something nice and give it away to one of my readers who really needs it for either their kid or someone else’s.

So email me at

Oh.. and I did think about donating it locally but there were just too many groups and churches and organizations to consider and plus, I wanted to do something for the people who give me a little bit of their time everyday!

In case it isn’t blatantly obvious .. Chief and I are MAJOR PS3 Call of Duty gamers.

Our mode of choice is online play and I, personally, have never been this addicted to a FPS (First Person Shooter) game before. Brain games, absolutely.. but not FPS’s.

I really thought that Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare couldn’t get any better.. but then came Call Of Duty 5: World At War and in the immortal words of somebody that I can’t remember: FUGGEDIBOUTIT!

I could play all day.. everyday.. and really does alleviate a lot of the stress that otherwise would have me scoping out nice high towers!! LOL!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to be released on November 10th. We already pre-ordered it and have made arrangements with our local GameStop to send up some catering because they’ll be open until past midnight. They were all “OMG! You Rock!” but really, it’s just making sure that I have my copy at a minute past midnight!

I already told Chief we’re closing the store for the day so we can sit and enjoy playing on our 52″ flat screen while the kids on in school!

Hey.. it’s the little things in life, right?

So if you’re into it and want to play with the big dogs.. my screen name is WarKittenz and Chief’s is DooFuzz … we both play under each other’s but I’m better.. the student has well surpassed the master!!
