Gaming

(The LJ 'adult content' button is amusing.)

Man, I totally lost track of doing these wrapup things a few weeks back. Things have been pretty nonstop since early November. Might be quieting down a bit before the holiday season, so I better plan a couple catching-up-with-people evenings to fill that gap.

Hit the abode of ceciskittle and t1tdave with M. and her brother for some tasty pasta and Wii. The Wii is fun, I confess. Definitely addictive and active. So I better never get one. Oh, and their new room is muy bueno.

Now officially so far behind on movies that I might never catch up. I vow to keep up the good fight, however. Starting with a kids movie for Z., soonly. Heh. Truly, it's the Netflix list that suffers the most.

Tonight, birthday party for the effervescent shibakiei.
Tomorrow, Iron Chef. Although, for me, it's more Iron Eating.

Good read: George Packer with questions that need answers on the new phase of the Iraq war.

Rove reasserts his revisionist history, despite evidence piling up against it. Is he just trying to stay in the news? Is he hoping that if he keeps repeating the same lies, people will start believing them?

Legendary daredevil Evel Knievel passed away. Bonus: an appreciation by James Poniewozik.

Yes, absinthe is back. No, it's not as cool as everyone makes it sound.

It's also been a while since I gave you ten things we didn't know this time last week.
