Saturday, had a passle of people over (though only Norton and Latinate were there for the actual Derby.) We actually managed to fill the comfortable capacity of the living room, which was cool.

They've also changed the 28 Days Later trailer, which now uses the words 'zombie horror' explicitly. Heh heh, way to spell it out, so no one is surprised by the vaguely-vague trailer. And man, after the new Matrix trailer, I sure hope they don't overdo the special effects. Which sounds lame when you're talking about Matrix, but now I went and said it.
