I Just Wanna Get Up To My Shack And Get Drunk...

by Rainier on Dec. 20, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We had a good time last night, maybe a little bit too good. It's safe to say that my college days are behind me, a time when I could drink 3-4 six-packs and still be reasonably fine. It's not that I was drunk off my ass, but those few cocktails sure made me sleep well.

What kind of bar has a "stew" evening but doesn't serve any stew, or much food of any kind? Go figure.

Anyhow, this week we'll be traveling to the in-laws to celebrate Christmas. Preparations are being made, and we've already started packing. News will most likely be non-existent, but we'll be around to cover whatever pops up, and we will also working on our best games of 2010, as well as most anticipated titles of 2011 features.
