Conscience ... That Stuff Can Drive You Nuts!

by Rainier on Oct. 25, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

I was afraid of this, but I had a sneaking suspicion when I went to bed that the cold and rain had seeped into my bones. Getting up yesterday was a bit of a drag, so we decided to bundle up, hunker down, and not leave the house (aside from getting groceries).

The upside of that is that we had plenty of time to clean up the DVR, and we're down to a historic 40% after watching Chuck, NCIS, Supernatural, Castle and House.

I kind of felt sorry for the people attending the Bridge School Benefit concert today, as rain came down in buckets all day long. I can only image how nasty the lawn area must have looked today after 25,000 people trampled it into a muddy mess yesterday. Yikes!

Kicking off this week in style, we have a new contest with some sweet Halo: Reach, Mountain Dew and Doritos goodies.
