A Very Figgy Birthday and a Super Happy Wookiee

Well hello hello.  Another year older and another year (something something).

So first off, I just have to thank all of the readers here for all the birthday wishes last Friday.  While we do get a good amount of comments on posts regularly, seeing 89 comments, and only one was from my Mom, was really special. They say for every person that comments, nine others thought about it and didn’t and that number just blows my noggin.  Over a thousand of you just took the time to click the post.  Wowza.

I had a great bday as those things go and spent the day in Disneyland so I have no complaints at all.  Got some stuff from family and friends and all in all, it was just the sort of relaxation needed before batting down the hatches for finals preparation.  Special thanks to my Mom for renting a poolside cabana on Saturday.

Anywho… there’s actually a point for this turn at word slinging.  My amazing friends/”sisters from another mister” on this blog not only surprised me with that birthday post but also sent me a prezzie and having received it yesterday, I had to share.

PS Don’t forget to check out Bunny’s post if you’re still experiencing the lag issues.

The Lag Is KILLING Me!

Hey there Hoppereenos, just passing on through to update on something that is still in progress. That dreaded Lag Issue we are all still running into. I have been in talks with EA in regards to this since the issue hit hard after the Easter Update. Some devices have slowly resolved to a lil better, but most are just unbearable.


If you’re living in slow-mo glitch land like poor Homie, hang in there, they are WELL aware of the issue and have responded…in a way.
