Hello World!

The weekend is over, so are you ready for another week of gaming goodness? I know I'm not! :)

We had good intentions yesterday, fully prepared to get some exercise, enjoy the good weather and make a run around the lake, but we got a sudden unexpected case of the lazies. Instead, we watched a Bones episode we missed earlier in the season and How I Met Your Mother. Apart from that, our weekend was filled with gaming (CrimeCraft and Zuma's Revenge) and napping. It was awesome. :)
