Last night I was unfortunately unable to post the recaps, due to the fact I was a little intoxicated, so I have rolled the entire weekend recap into this one blog. I hope no one minds, but I don't think anyone will because there was a lot of great stuff to read this weekend on the cblogs. I mean just look at the size of that Topsauce section. It's awesome to see so many great blogs being written on the weekends.
I don't know about you, but I had a great weekend. First of all, I had my 100th blog post promoted to the front page
, which is pretty awesome. It's only my 3rd blog to ever get promoted, so I guess I have a 3% promotion ratio. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
Anyways, besides that my girlfriend and I went to the AT&T store to upgrade our cell phones to the new iPhone 3GS this weekend. Unfortunately there were out of stock, so we have to go back later this week to pick ours up, but we are pretty excited. We have both wanted an iPhone for a really long time now, so it will be nice to finally own one. Now I just have to wait for the Desctructoid iPhone app to come out. Is anyone even working on one? If not they should be. Get on that Neiro!
I also beat X-Men Origins: Wolverine
this weekend on the XBOX360. That game was pretty damn cool. I wish the movie had been more like the game. An R-rated Wolverine movie would have been so bad ass. Unfortunately I don't think that will ever happen, unless Quentin Tarantino gets a hold of the movie rights. Oh wow, can you guys imagine a Tarantino Wolverine flick? That shit would be off the hook!
