Off The Record, On The QT, And Very Hush-Hush

by Rainier on Sept. 10, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Ahh, our favorite day of the week, Friday! It's not only because it's the last work day (not really since we also provide weekend coverage, albeit in a reduced form) but also because we eat bagels in the morning. What is all the excitement about? On our trip to Los Angeles last week, we found pineapple cream cheese, so we're looking forward to trying that out.

No particular plans for this weekend, but we are contemplating checking out Resident Evil: Afterlife, and unlike Clash of the Titans, Milla Jovovich's latest zombie-fest is actually shot in 3D, so it should make for a pleasant experience.

Last night we watched some more Dexter season 2, and it seems the writers got over the transition hump from book material to their own inspiration. The first episode of the second season was a bit awkward, but the next two were quite good.
