Visiting A Museum, Watching Cartoons? Where's the Real Me!?

by Rainier on Sept. 6, 2009 @ 11:54 p.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

So the visit to the Asian Art Museum to see the Samurai exhibit was actually quite cool: lots of armor, swords and lore to read up on. Unfortunately, my wife and the other people we were with wanted to take the opportunity to visit the rest of the museum while we were there .... Couldn't care less who ate what out of which white pot or whatever that weird bento box means. *yawn*

Went to a Burmese restaurant afterwards. Never tasted that cuisine, and I must say it was quite good.

Then back to the homested for — you guessed it — some CrimeCraft and watching Green Lantern: First Flight, a cool new cartoon released ealier this year.

Ahh Holiday Weekend, How I Love You

by Rainier on Sept. 6, 2009 @ 3:49 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Here in North America, we are celebrating Labor Day weekend, so we have an extra day off on Monday. Woohoo! The in-laws are visiting (no comment), and tomorrow we are going to the museum to check on some Samurai exhibit. Could be interesting.

Apart from the galavanting around, this gives me the opportunity to work a little bit on the site, but mainly catch up on some CrimeCraft. I finally managed to save enough loot to acquire our gang's hideout, which we can further pimp out with a bank, vendor, mailbox or spiffy up with a new interior. Ugh, must save more loot ...

Hope everybody is having a good weekend. Enjoy!
