If You Make A Noise, I Shall Blow Your Head Off At Once

by Rainier on Jan. 24, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Sorry for the late start. A nap lasted longer than expected, and with the Australian Open airing in the middle of the night, the schedule has been thrown off a bit.

The weekend was great, with lots of good food, spectacular views, and lots of TV watching.

Haven't caught "The Green Hornet" yet, but we might see that in a few days, or perhaps we'll save our efforts for Your Highness. In the meantime, we watched Chuck, NCIS, Brotherhood, and Pirate Radio (lots of awesome classic rock music).

A lot of new titles are scheduled for March, but tomorrow, we'll get a chance to play Dead Space 2, and I truly enjoyed the first installment, so I'll check out the PC version at the first opportunity.
