Gaming

bam-a-lam

Tongue: mostly healed. Swallowing no longer hurts. Still can't whistle quite right.

Star Wars minis: Legacy of the Force figs lookin' sharp! Faith restored.

Cat: extra crazy recently. Always cute when she purrs while we're trimming her claws.

Comic book news: I'm so out of date. Haven't read any of the NYCC articles I saved to read later. Partially due to...

City of Heroes last night: quick and dirty good times. Ice blastin' still big fun in large groups.

"I guess my view was that these people were these fanatic people, and this really shows they weren't fanatics... They were human, just like me. They were just doing what they were told to do, and doing it for the love of their country."

TV

reminder: new Lost tomorrow night!

The AV Club presents sixteen unanswered TV questions. (Bonus: Benson!)

Also, an excellent interview with Lindelof and Cuse, the dudes behind Lost. (No spoilers if you're up to date with the episodes that have aired up till now; I'd avoid it if you aren't.) Quite keen reading their take on things from the creators' side of the desk.

Oh, and while I'm here, lemme note that The Sarah Connor Chronicles got renewed. So I should probably finish up season 1.
