Stwike Him, Centuwion. Stwike Him Vewy Wuffly!

by Rainier on March 30, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

April Fool's Day is quietly approaching, and I'm already on the lookout for early pranks. We've been quite good at avoiding any trickery over the past few years, but I always get extra suspicious right around this time. Some of the jokes are quite intricate, and I do enjoy reading about them, but hate to get fooled myself.

Didn't get much watching done last night. We had some company over, but we did manage to watch the 3rd episode of The Pacific, and while there was as good as no war-time action, it was still a powerful ep., showing a more behind-the-scenes look of what went on while GIs were on leave.
