How Do They Expect You To Get Uncrazy If You're Asleep All The Time?

by Rainier on April 15, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

We have arrived safely at our destination! It's a little bit colder than we would have liked, but we'll make do. Tomorrow, we are going to start our sightseeing, and this weekend we're even going to do some mountain climbing! OK, maybe it's more hiking than climbing, but still ....

Since the laptop isn't exactly equipped for gaming, there will be no Crimecraft for me. :( I have checked out Rockstar's Facebook app, Red Dead Redemption: Gunslingers, which is kinda cool to tide you over until the actual game comes out.

The latest news is that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon is not only directing but also re-writing The Avengers — you know, that movie with Nick Fury, Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. I'm so looking forward to it already!
