Drink Up, It'll Make The Whole Seduction Part Less Repugnant

by Rainier on Sept. 7, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Home sweet home! The trip was fun, but as always, it's even better to be home again.

While we were waiting for our flight to depart, we watched Dead Snow (or Død Snø in its original language) and it was quite good, over-the-top and gory, which made it equally funny. Of course, we watched a few more episodes of Dexter and the latest Weeds.

All in all, it was a good ending to the long weekend, and now it's back to the grind.

Our condolences go out to the family of Relic lead designer Brian Wood, who was killed in a vehicular accident over the weekend.
