The weekend flew by again. Why can't it drag on like the work week usually does? Luckily, the weather was quite good, and it only started raining this morning.

Was a relaxing day yesterday with lots of food (dim sum with some friends in the morning, lamb stew for dinner), some gaming (DC Universe Online, Stronghold Kingdom) and lots of TV watching (Knight & Day, Blue Bloods, Bones and Fringe). No, I didn't get around to fixing my PC yet, but I looked at it a few times. I'm getting warmed up!

For all you forgetful folks out there, today is Valentine's Day, so put down the controller and do/get something nice for your wife, fiancée, girlfriend or mother.
