Exercise, Breakfast, Shopping and Broken X Box

My parents (my dad and stepmom) got worried about me running in the street. They gave me my Christmas present early. A membership to a health club. Goodness, I hadn't been in a health club in awhile. I felt.....intimidated. I shouldn't have. Nobody really cared what I wore or what I looked like. I didn't even know so many machines exist! It was fun. I got on the treadmill, the bike, the stairmaster, goodness! It was exhiliarating. Watch me not be able to get up tommorrow!

After we all exercised, we went out to breakfast/brunch. I feasted on one of my favorites -- Eggs Benedict. Yummm. I went home to finish some paperwork and mail it out. I headed to the mall. The parking lots were jammed but I slid right into a "windfall" space -- front space right by the door. I finished my shopping thank heavens!

We went out to dinner for California burritos. The workers were authentic Mexicans and couldn't understand our party at all. I hoped for the best when I got my food. I just got home after being gone all day except for the stop in for the paperwork and shower. 'Tis the season for shopping and eating and exhaustion I guess. Last night I actually slept through the entire night last night. That never happens to me. I'm a really light sleeper.

Poor Walt. Remember him waiting all night for the XBox? It's BROKEN. It worked three days and it is NOW BROKEN. That was his entire Christmas. He is trying hard to keep his spirits up. I feel so very sorry for him. I don't know what to do. His parents are devastated. His Christmas was mainly centered around stuff for the XBox and now there is NO XBOX. He was jokingly saying, "Microsoft has RUINED my Christmas." He is a brave boy. Something could still happen to fix it. Best Buy promised that they would exchange his other one for a new one when a shipment comes in. I do hope a new shipment comes in tommorrow, and he gets one. He so deserves it. I think all of you deserve a little holiday windfall. Here's hoping you get one.

Here's hoping your muscles aren't 'screaming' in the morning.

I'll say a prayer for Walt that Best Buy comes through for him tomorrow.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

No way is he getting a new XBOX anytime soon; those things are so backordered you wouldn't believe.

I saw where Microsoft issued a no-hassle return/exchange policy on the XBox. It has some sort of malfunction that causes it to shut down, thus the recall.

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas! :)

You might tell your friend Walt that the problem with most of the X-Box's is with the power supply. They are undersized and tend to over heat. So it's not the computer it's the power supply that has probally failed. When he gets it replaced. Elevate the power brick above the floor and keep it cool or it could fail again. This will be an ongoing thing untill MS admits its a problem and issuses a recall on the supplies.
