Call For Friends!

Once upon a time.. a friend and I had an interesting philosophical discussion.. if you're at home alone having a drink while you're being social online, does it count as "social drinking"?

In any event, rather than enjoying the few beautiful Seattle weekends we get outside in the sun, I've been spending way too much time playing with my new Xbox 360. On that note, I figure I might be able to turn such a bad thing into a good thing by making it a more "social" activity.

So, if anybody out there plays 360 games, I'm looking for friends! My Gamer Card profile is here (my Gamertag is xref). It's kind of empty since I just started playing. So far, I have Kameo, PGR 3, and Call of Duty 2.. but I'll be stocking up on other soon + casual games from the Xbox Live Marketplace.

And while I'm on the 'seeking friends' kick - if you're already a friend of mine, and you use Flickr, drop me a line because I'm looking for friends there too. Subscribing to an RSS feed through Flickr that shows me all my friends' new photos has been a really great fun way to keep up on what's going on with people all over the place.

I'm also trying really hard to get off AOL Instant Messenger. The new version, Triton, is just absolutely horrible. Instead, you can find me on or Windows Live/MSN Messenger or Google Talk.

Anyhoo, off to sleep. I have spec reviews and sign-offs rapidly approaching over the new few weeks - time to be a busy worker bee for a while!

Wow, I'm a major couch potato and even I got out into the sun this weekend! That 360 must really be addictive.

Sadly, I don't use Flickr or have an XBox. I think my gallery has rss feeds, but I haven't taken any pictures in months.
