This site cracks me up. Maybe it's just because I was playing the Left 4 Dead demo last night, but zombies make me laugh. Best tagline is "Sometimes when there aren't enough people, I eat dogs! LOL" Zombies using LOL makes me happy. (Hap tip to Ric for the link).
So I woke up this morning to the usual sounds of Kramp and Addler. I laid there for a bit, then sat up and rubbed my eyes, like I usually do. Pulled the covers off of me, then looked to my right and noticed that my unused pillow didn't have the pillow case on it. I had torn the cover off the pillow in my sleep and then gently laid it right next to the pillow. WHAT? I've been known to talk in my sleep, mostly incoherent babble (last year sometime I talked about economics and money, apparently), but this is a new low. So a word of warning to whoever sleeps by me next: I'm liable to grab your pillow and tear the case off it. Or tear your face off.
Prepare to have your mind blown at the most difficult game conceived by sadistic humans. I've managed to make it 1.5 metres, but keep in mind I've only been trying FOR THE LAST HOUR.

EDIT: 2.9 metres! A new record!
Quantum of Solace opens today across the US. I have a confession to make: The only bond movie I really enjoy is Casino Royale. Blasphemy, I know. Maybe it's because they've been parodied so well, or that the plots are mostly fucking absurd. Seriously, let me give you the plot synopsis for Die Another Day:
Bond’s search leads him to a mysterious billionaire, who’s involvement in diamond trading provides him with the means to build a diamond-encrusted satellite, a ’solar mirror,’ with the power to harness and concentrate the energy of the sun, creating a massive laser cannon powerful enough to destroy anything on earth in its path.
WHAT? Now you may say, "Bond has always been about over the top villains and plot devices." Look fella, it's 2008. That goofy shit doesn't fly anymore. If you want to be over the top with your movie then knowingly do it, like Shoot 'Em Up. I'll stick with plots about financing terrorize and the like. As such, Daniel Craig is the only Bond for me. Mostly because I could get lost in his eyes for days.....
