I Admire People Who Do Things

by Rainier on Nov. 12, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

My hopes of having a quiet day yesterday turned out to be in vain. I even slept in a bit, but that all came back to bite me in the behind.

Nevertheless, I played some Vindictus and Stronghold Kingdoms, which is amazingly engaging for a slow-paced game. There's quite a bit to do and keep track of (it's in open beta, so sign up). After a short break due to World Series baseball, TV season has started again, so we watched The Good Wife, NCIS, Stargate Universe and Sons Of Anarchy.

This weekend, we're having our carpet cleaned, so in between working, I'll be moving furniture and equipment. Joy!
