Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Electric Bills...
« on: January 18, 2006, 04:20 PM »
Rob, I also live in the Dallas area and completely understand where you are coming from on the electric bill.  My wife and I have a 1000 sq/ft apartment that was costing near $150-200 a month to heat/cool.  We switched from TXU over to Reliant and the bill dropped the first month about $50 but has since gone up and we are now paying about $130-150.  I switched and although the change hasn't been a lot, it's something and I guess that is better than nothing.

I picked up Han yesterday.  These new figs look cool, but I'm not really in the modern line too much any more, unless it's for clones or Han stuff.  However, I may pick up a sandtrooper or two when they come out.

Also, I'm looking now, does anyone know if there will be star cases made for these figures?  It kind of pisses me off that the current figures won't fit in the case that every other figure from the beginning to the POTC fit in the same case and these recent ones don't.

Alex, looks like you've been reinstated over there.

Woohoo!!!  I was watching the weather last night and it's possible this part of Texas could see some rain possibly Sunday and Monday.

I was a bit hesitant to buy this because I'm trying to spend any money because my wife and I are hoping to get a house this summer, but I decided shortly before the auction ended to take a stab at this figure.  I just hope I didn't overpay for it.

It's been in the 70's and even 80's the last several weeks in north Texas.  I'd actually like to get a little bit of a winter here.

Hey buddy, I married into a Longhorn family.  I've been a season ticket (football) holder in the past, have UT stickers on the car that have since faded with age, and a closet full of burnt orange.  I guess that's a bandwagon fan.

Sorry pal, the game was what it was.

Oh and who's the real Heisman winner now? Still Reggie Bush.

Who gives a **** who won the Heisman?  Texas won the National Championship.  The final score of the game is all that matters.

Man that was awesome.  My wife and I went nuts when Vince finally got into the endzone.  I was getting a little scared on the next to last play and just prayed the Texas D could keep USC outside the 30 yard line.

Before school starts this morning I'm going to be making a UT national champion poster and stick it on my door.

Vince is a badass and turned it on when needed the most!!

The Rangers finally pulled the trigger and got an excellent starter.  I'm trying to decide if Millwood is a top tier pitcher or not.  He's a number 2 in most rotations, but an ace in Texas.  Nothing seemed to rattle the guy at the press conference yesterday announcing his 5 years $60 million contract...thanks Scott Boras...dumbass.

Anyway, bought time the Rangers finally nailed down a pitcher.  I guess it makes Texas a little more attractive now for Clemens should they decide that they can swing $20 million for him and all of his perks.

Dallas Stars Game!!!  I'll be home well before twelve and I'll just watch whatever or play whatever on PS2 until I feel like going to bed.

Good point Robert.  That is probably the reason I won't make a big stink about it.  Although I do find it hypocritical that some members are allowed to do it, while others are not.

That said, let me say thanks to the great staff at JD, whom I have traded with most of them now, by letting me keep a site in my signature.  I hope I'm not violating the rules here. ;)

Speaking of RS's rules, I got my signature removed...the same one I have here.  It's been in my name for 2+ years and nobody has said a word until now.  I wasn't actively promoting the other site.  Dustin was also kind enough to stick a copy of the "rules" for signatures and not promoting other sites.

Needless to say, there are others there who are allowed to have a number of SW collecting sites mentioned in their signatures.  I guess PW is now trying to stamp out all competition.
