The Failed Mind Sees The Heart's Failings...

by Rainier on Jan. 6, 2012 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We just finished watching Cars 2 and enjoyed it thoroughly. Some friends had seen it earlier and claimed that their kids didn't quite get it, and that feedback seems justified, as the many James Bond references and intricate plot were probably too much for youngsters. Love Larry the Cable Guy, though. He's hilarious.

We have no plans for this weekend apart from catching up on the DVR recordings from the holiday and trying to get back on our regular sleeping schedule. Maybe we'll go to the movies if anything strikes our fancy because you can never watch enough movies, can ya?!

Space combat in The Old Republic is AWESOME!
