I Mind My Own Business, I Bother Nobody, And What Do I Get? Trouble!

by Rainier on April 25, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Ah man, so much food and so much eating yesterday. We had a huge honey-glazed ham with various side dishes that kept us busy from lunch till dinner. I'm about to burst!

In between gorging myself, I played some APB Reloaded. I must admit that at first glance, not too much has changed from when Real Time Worlds ran the game. I'll have to play some more and check up on some of the details, but it was quite fun. I've also installed Rift (Trion's first MMORPG), so I'll be checking that out tomorrow.

We also watched Winter's Bone (didn't like it), Tangled (loved it), and the latest episode of Chuck. We had planned on watching the new HBO series Game Of Thrones, but with our bellies full, we decided to postpone that until tonight.
