The Year I Really Started to Feel Older…

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

All throughout my life I have always felt like a kid at heart. I still love the simple things in life, would love to get together with my neighborhood kids to play a game of “mud gutter”, and I still feel like I am the person I was in college….except I am realizing more and more I am not that kid anymore. This year was a big wake up call. I began enjoying AM radio (something I always got annoyed by when I was younger) I look forward to going to be early I wake up early I have three...

Media Mondays: PlayStation 3

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 4 Comments

I had been a huge fan of PlayStation 2 – mostly for games like SoCom II, Grand Theft Auto 3, and Madden football but when PlayStation 3 came out – I thought it was just a tad too expensive for the amount of time I would actually have time to play it. With the recent price break – I decided to pick one up over the weekend with Madden 2010 and COD 4. While I have not even touched COD 4, Madden 2010 has not disappointed. The graphics and game play are solid and are really impressive. PlayStation 3 overall... Read More » Read more

Generation Social

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

As a history major – I tend to look at everything and find trends, think about what historians will write about our time, and all kinds of fun things that drive Amy crazy. The other day while I was thinking about playing Super Mario 3 on my Wii, I thought about the definition of being social (“interactions between people”) and then thought that my son Evan’s generation will most likely view our generation as very unsocial. We wrote letters that took days to deliver, interacted with people very limitedly, played games by ourselves, and worked independently. Our definition of communication... Read More » Read more

Finally Got a Wii!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

Finally – I made it to a Best Buy that had a Wii over the weekend! I saw the flier in the Sunday paper that Best Buy had some in stock so I jumped in the car with Amy and E and we got there to get a “ticket” which guaranteed a Wii. So far I only have 2 games (Wii Sports and some other game that came with a second controller) but look forward to getting some more games soon. Anyone play the newest Mario? Read more

Jappler Recommends: McDonalds' Online Monopoly Game

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 4 Comments

If there is one thing I absolutely love about McDonalds (besides their superior Coke mixture) I love their Monopoly game. I even dreamt about the game a few nights ago that I pulled off Park Place and Boardwalk from the same Coke…and won $246. With that said – the excitement of pulling off the little game pieces from my medium Coke and putting them onto the board is usually enough to make me smile. I happened to have a pile of pieces at my house (maybe 6) and decided to go online and check out their “online Monopoly game“. When... Read More » Read more

back playing socom ii.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

It has been at least a year – probably 2 since I stopped playing SoCom II but a few weeks Doug started playing again and got me interested again. I have to say, playing it on my new TV which is almost twice the size of my old TV is definitely nice. It is equally nice that the same old grumpy men and wannabe 12 year olds are still there to make it interesting. I forgot how much I missed listening to these 2 types of people argue – it is really pretty fun – especially when you have a... Read More » Read more

iPod and WordPress coolness in one day.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I came across an awesome HOWTO on getting linux and games on your iPod. Now if I just had a color screen iPod (I have gen 2). On another note, WordPress.com now offers “VIP Hosting” which would be a great option for a few projects I am working on. Great job Automattic! [tags]iPod, linux, games, WordPress[/tags] Read more

frustration station.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Frustation lies everywhere, either you find it or you don’t…I seem to find it a lot, but finally I can laugh at most of it or at least brush it off. (How many years did that take?) First up…Metra. Boarding my express train is like a Rage Against the Machine video and Metra finally did something about it, they no longer open the first two cars for people at my stop. It finally came to that. I think the older you get, the more rage you have boarding trains, and then comment and waive your fingers at the “out of... Read More » Read more

literati

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I never played Scrabble until earlier this year, but I have become completely hooked to Yahoo! literati. I think part of the fun is getting the great words that happen to work such as: dui, ka, cos, coz, zee, cee, etc. The words are supposedly checked by dictionary.com so who knows…maybe it is not an english dictionary. , I am thinking we are on the verge of a new English dialect, iBonics. So if you want to learn something new, join me in a game of literati, where iBonics is accepted! Literati supports all iBonics speakers! Read more
