3 Days and Counting

A little Monday morning reading material as I can't seem to get to work... I need an Iced Tea the size of my head.

Cracked has a new list out - The 10 Most Terrifying Video Game Enemies of All Time. Among my favorites:

#8 - The Dog from Paperboy
This game was a 1988 Nintendo classic about a plucky paperboy and an entire neighborhood that inexplicably wanted to murder him.

I never played the following game... but the description made me laugh.

#2 - The Poison Head Crabs from Half Life 2
Whenever we heard these lil' fuckers ululating in a shadowy corner of the room, we fell back on our default strategy of spinning in circles and shooting at the ceiling. And we weren't the only ones wigging out --the crabs' shrieks were so unpleasant that they reportedly threw Half Life 2 play testers into ammo-wasting paroxysms.

Patch Notes for Wrath of the Lich King Alpha Testing are out/leaked. My only comment for this is where it mentions Death Knights... THEY START IN EASTERN PLAGUELANDS???? I thought I was done with that dustbowl of hell.

I really need to hurry up and get my Civic Hybrid... /sigh - Gas, Diesel Prices Soar to Record High

Has anyone seen the new "Slutty" Starbucks Logo? I'm not exactly sure if I would call it slutty... and I don't really agree that she has her "legs" spread... but wtf... It's just plain weird looking. Someone needs to smack the marketing department's lead upside the head. Probably should include the CEO as well.

I'm not sure if I'm going to see it... but Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is getting semi-good reviews after being viewed at Cannes. I'm not big into the action genre but I'd watching the previous 3 films again... Ok, minus the bug scene in the Temple of Doom one.

Anyway, 2 more days and then a day of travel for me and I'll be in the arms of the man I love. Yes, I'm a sappy mess when it comes to Ian. Below is something to add to my list. Have a great Monday!
