Yesterday was Columbus Day, big whoopty doo! I think only the banks and post office were closed, so it wasn't a real holiday around these parts.

While Adam was over at the Capcom event checking out Dark Void and driving high-end Tesla sports cars, we worked, took a nap, ate, watched some more Amazing Race, worked some more, watched Sunshine Cleaners on DVD, ate again, and watched the latest episode of House.

*sarcasm* Yes, what a busy day!

Tomorrow should be a good gaming day. Brutal Legend and Forza 3 are starting off this Rocktober week in style!
