Just So ZZzZZZleepyyyyy

by Rainier on Sept. 10, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

It doesn't get much more simpler than that, I'm tired, beat, worn out, stick a fork in me. Luckily the weekend is in sight, so I will soldier on and pull through. Some people have recently called me bionic, so I guess I can't let them down now ....

One of the side effects of me being tired, I honestly start acting loopy, as in insane in the membrane. Most of the times, it's a funny crazy though, so have no fear. :)

Nothing too exciting happened yesterday, even the news was sort of blah, a few average  demos, no scandals, no surprising buyouts or takeovers from Disney, although later today a few Euros might get a little excited over the FIFA 10 demo, so keep an eye out on the file servers.
