What Do You Call It When The Assassins Accuse The Assassin? A Lie

by Rainier on Aug. 5, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Apologies for the missing MOTD yesterday, but after a five-hour flight, and an additional hour delay on a connecting flight, I didn't feel like much updating. Sleep sounded more appealing, especially since we had been up for 24 hours.

We've been musing around for a bit, playing the tourist role, and our dinner was quite disappointing, but today should be much better. There's even talk of a BBQ somewhere down the line!

We've surely been missing out on some of our TV series, but hopefully the DVR has been doing its job, leaving plenty to watch when we fly back home on Sunday.

No time for gaming, so that has been put on hold for a few days as well. Luckily, no withdrawal symptoms yet!
