Ouch, sorry to hear that. I can't imagine life without my xbox. Its unfortunate about the job situation, i had a similar problem when i left uni, i had 4 interviews in the span of about 5 months and didn't get any of them, by the end it was becoming frustrating. Are you between jobs or just finished studying?
I was playing a lot of BF3 over the christmas break but now that i'm back at work, i really only have time to game on the weekends, but i'm always up for playing any game over live. Feel free to add me or send an invite.
She played River, now that you mention it, i can't believe it's been 10 years since that show first aired, wow.
Ha, although i've never admitted it until now, i too have listened to the occasional Hilary Duff song while playing xbox, all my house mates think it's weird but it's a nice change to the usual in game music.
