I Have No Socks Left Around These Holes

by Rainier on Jan. 11, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

CES is over, and preparations are already beginning for GDC. Even E3 has begun accepting registrations. Here we go again...

This weekend, we'll officially end the holidays by getting rid of our Christmas tree, even though it is still in remarkably good shape. It's served its purpose, and we need the living room space back.

We planned on watching the series premiere of "The Cape," but it was a 2-hour episode, so we instead opted for the season opener of "V" instead.

Richard "Dick" Winters, the Easy Company commander whose World War II exploits were made famous by the book and TV miniseries "Band of Brothers," died last week at the age of 92. He had asked that news of his death be withheld until after the funeral. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
