I <3 Chuck

So I realize it's been a week and I haven't written anything, but I must reiterate my love for Chuck. I just watched the season finale, and it was nothing short of fantastic. It is probably one of my favorite shows of all time.

Please don't take it away NBC...

This week's Chuck

I just watched this week's Chuck and I have some very important questions:
  • Are they taking my precious Chuck away?
  • Is this some clever ruse or simply trying to write in a way that they can go out gracefully if not renewed?
  • Why don't more people like/watch this show?
I demand answers!

And if you aren't watching Chuck, you should be, it's phenomenal. Easily one of my favorite shows if not the favorite since it originally aired.

Stop watching whatever the hell else is on Mondays at 8:00 and watch Chuck!

Alright, I'm done.

Pirates make me sick


I'm not sure if it's the concept in general or the specific comments from the posters below the article. While I am sure the launch of Demigod could have gone better, the sense or absurd pirate entitlement makes me want to hit something. If you take something without paying for it, it is stealing. Period. The fact that people can feel completely justified in that behavior just makes me want to puke.

BTW, as a former DOTA player I can say that Demigod is pretty good for what it's worth. I think it manages to expand on that formula in interesting ways, and offers a lot of strategic multiplayer action. Though I could do with a little more of a single-player campaign, but I guess you can't have everything.

Have you worked 40+ hours this week...

...because I have, not even counting Sunday. I'm not even really upset about it, just tired. Heck, there have been people there every night after I left!

Anyway, it's sleepy time. More news later, maybe after this milestone...

Only 6 Posts in March, Really?

I guess that statistic shouldn't really surprise me considering how busy things have been. The sad part (as Rick would be quick to point out) is that half of those are links without any other real description. Oh well, I've been personally and professionally slammed as of late, and considering I wasn't exactly sure what I was doing with this site anyway, it seemed an easy thing to put on the back burner. The far back burner, like one in some else's kitchen...I'm still not sure exactly what I want this blog to be, but I figure as long as I keep trying to write I will, and it can serve as a record of my mental deterioration for when they finally commit me.

Anyway, I don't have a whole lot to say about games since I sadly haven't been playing that many lately. Over the last few weeks I got involved in a number of different social activities including, but not limited to, lindy class, salsa class, church group, board game night, and other ad-hoc social outings. I think I've been running at a bit more extroverted pace that I prefer and I think it has slowly worn me down. Luckily a lot of my social activities have completed or at least reduced their frequency so I can get some time to just relax on the couch with a nice game or movie instead of constantly being on the move.

Unfortunately, I think work sensed my respite, brief though it was, and managed to fill in all that free time with additional work. As such, I had to go in yesterday and today to try to play catch up for having to miss a few days this week as I had to leave town in order to attend a family funeral. It's been a whirlwind week to be sure, but I think the waves are starting die down a little bit, or at least I feel like I have a better handle on them right now. There are some significant deadlines in RCF2 over the next couple weeks so I am sure I'll be busy, but I made some good consistent progress on my goals today, and honestly I think that's all I can really ask for. Any day without significant setbacks or roadblocks is a good day in my book.

Well, I think that should do for now. I haven't had time to play much of anything lately, so I am looking forward to doing some well-deserved gaming before I need to turn in for the evening. Night all!
