My week has been...well, as the title says, wierd, I don't know how else to describe it..

On the 2nd I hit 10,000 gamerscore
On the 3rd my first xbox 360 broke
On the 4th my Live subscription ran out.

So I've been having mixed feelings...

Anyone else had something really good happen to them, followed very quickly by something really bad?

I'd call that a series of unfortunate events more than anything. Although my 360 also bricked just around when I got 10k

I had a very up and down situation back in December. I got my first RRoD after having my 360 for almost 2 years without a single problem. I had a Best Buy store warranty and called the number like it told me and they said "We have great news! Microsoft extended their warranty and you can send your 360 back to MS." Oh fun! So I went ahead and called MS and got the box in a few days and sent my baby in. I luckily got it back in about 2 weeks (it might have been less), a week before Christmas. I couldn't imagine a Winter break with no 360. I was so excited when I saw that box. The very next day I get RRoD'd again. I said screw MS and screw Best Buy customer service. I just went ahead and took my 360 in to Best Buy and managed to exchange it for a brand new one. I got a free copy of Forza 2/Marvel: UA and bought a new 2 year warranty for only $10 due to the price drop. OH yeah, it was the second to last day my warranty was still good.

Probaly a month maybe a little longer after elites came out ( I was wanting one since I heard about the 120G drive) I was playing a game and the red ring happened to me. I took it to UPS to mail out and then went to talk to Gamestop about purchasing a regular 360 without a hard drive and he told me not to do that unless I work somewhere I can get a discount to think about getting an elite if I could find one. I went to Wal-Mart and there was one sitting there. I ended up getting it and then got a message from Microsoft saying my 360 couldn't be fixed that they would send me a new one within 2 months.

So in away i fill like I was being told to get the elite.
