Holy Frijoles!

I have a culinary soulmate!

In fact, this guy is worse than I am. I didn't know that was possible!

I would argue that there's no one in the world that knows as much about video games while not actually being a gamer than me. Well, ok, I'm a bit of a social gamer and gems* such as Resident Evil: Leon and Portal will institute the no-playing-while-sgwordy-is-out-of-the-house rule but I would still classify myself as a non-gamer.

However, a constant environment of gaming can actually turn out to be rewarding at times. For instance this line totally cracked me up: "I can tell by how little she's wearing that I'm supposed to like this character yet I feel myself turning on her."

So much about video games is revealed in that hilarious statement. (courtesy of Unskippable over at the Escapist)

*And yes I realize I recently posted a couple Assassin's Creed videos but as you probably noticed Altair broke my heart. Well, I should probably blame Ubisoft...

Didn't get to my sandwich yet but when doing some online research I found this bit of awesomeness:

In a science fiction novel, if I describe what's on a desk, the reader will use this to figure out the level of technology in the society.

In a mystery novel, if I describe what's on a desk, the reader will understand that one of those objects is a clue.

In a literary novel, if I describe what's on a desk, the reader will understand it to be a metaphor for the protagonist's mental state.

When Life Throws You a Curve Ball

It appears you should look straight at it!

Sableye Yearns for Freedom

This is Sableye. He lives on my left thigh and has not seen the light of day for many moons. Is anyone else sick of winter?

This does make me feel a special kinship with Jocelyn and her desire for freedom to love her William. So much so that she would live with the pigs. And I quote, "Yes, William, with the pigs. With the pigs." If you are not moved by such a passionate answer than you have a heart of stone. This is my opinion and it is beyond contestation!
