They Send You Here For Life, And That's Exactly What They Take

by Rainier on March 4, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Happy Friday! On to the weekend!

It's the last day of GDC, so I'm going to rush through a few appointments, say hi to some people, and mayhaps check out a few games. It was oddly quiet yesterday, so hopefully it picks up a bit today.

This weekend, we're going to watch "The Adjustment Bureau" (new Matt Damon flick), but I'm REALLY looking forward to next week's Battle L.A. opening. I've been salivating over that flick for months now.

Last night we watched House, The Cape (which unfortunately got canceled, so cherish these last few episodes), The Good Wife and The Chicago Code.
