So how was your weekend, ladies and gents? Do anything fun? Me? Just this...
I'll have more later today on my personal blog. For now, it suffices to say that the robot knows how to party. My thanks to CTZ for the invitation and to Niero, R3y, and all the rest for opening up their home so that others could have a good time.
We've got a lot of new members introducing themselves today, some egregious fail, and some most entertaining replies to said fail. Let's get to it.
*-Don't "Turn-up" your nose at this great Musing about Animal Crossing by Beyamor.
Go ahead and groan. I can't hear you from here.
*-I think we've all been here. Steph Louise K wrote about the difficulty in performing triage on your game collection.
*-Metallion's Musing: Mario, Mustaches, Miyamoto & more.
*-While this Musing from Sentry wasn't in time for the Love/Hate topic cutoff, the extra time it spent cooking shows. It was worth the wait.
*-SuitcoatAvenger's artblogs are always a treat for the eyes.

No community contests. My Simpsons reference from two weeks ago was most closely identified by Handy. The quote was, "Romance is dead. It was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece-by-piece.” This was said by Lisa in season 6's Another Simpsons Clip Show.

L-At this point it was getting pretty ridiculous, so RenegadePanda did what he could to get things back on topic. Mmm... 64 slices of American cheese.
