My Life...as requested by Durf I took a long break from D2 and spent it playing Asheron's Call 2. I also continued working for a mutual fund company. I'm now married (3 years) and have a beautiful little boy named Joey who is 8 1/2 months old. I just can't wait till he's old enough to start playing D2. I am in the process of buying a house. Actually, I already bought it...we're just waiting for it to be built now. A note to those not living in California...buying a house costs a freaking fortune out here!!! A 3 bedroom/2 bath house at 1678 square feet costs well over $300,000. Hmmm...not sure what else to throw in there. If you are single and get married, be careful...it's very easy to get fat. I still enjoy smoking cigars...my wife doesn't usually appreciate it though. That's about it. I still can't get characters through the game very quickly and I don't do MF runs very well. I just can't seem to pass up monsters to get to Meph. I always end up killing the Council Members in his chamber and the other mobs down there...then opening all the chests, etc. I'll have to break that habit if I want to get good gear faster. Well, that's it...sorry for boring you all with the details of my life. Oh, one last thing. For those of you who don't have kids...there is nothing like it in the world. It is the best thing I've ever experienced. For those of you that do have kids...you know what I mean. And you are reminded of it every time you walk into a room and that little face looks up and smiles at you.
