Worcester, Massachusetts....the place that's NOT pronounced "Worchester"

Really? Panhandler's pizza is glorious, as a matter of fact I just ate there a week ago.

I was really depressed to see GameForce go, because they closed right when I was just starting to get into retro gaming. Gamestop here has nothing old whatsoever, so its difficult to get classic gaming stuff.

When did you move away from Ft. Collins?
Summer of 2001. I go there once a year, and one of the things I do is pick up an NES or SNES game from gameforce and I almost cut myself over it closing. They always seemed to do well to me, I'm surprised they closed.

However, I found a place buy a chuck e cheese's called BuyBack games that sells classic stuff to a point. There is also a store in Loveland that also doubles as a card store and I called and they said they sell old stuff, but I never made it there.

I really miss Ft. Collins, they have bike lanes and sidewalks everywhere. Where I live now you take a picture if you see a bike lane. So, are you there to go to CSU or do you just live there?

Lessee, if I could describe where I live in the most stereotypical manner possible, I would attend my alternative school by taking public transportation past seven Starbucks (all on the same block), then the Starbucks HQ and the Microsoft HQ, and talk on my cell phone about electric cars while sipping a latte and reading the latest book Oprah talked about on her show. Where do I live?

Yes! :D

However, life in Seattle is nowhere near as horrible as pop culture wants you to think. They're just jealous that Seattle is technically the smartest city in the US.
