Hello friends, I hope you all had a nice Friday!



So who all has watched the much anticipated 4th season of Arrested Development? I still have 3 episodes to go before finishing it, but I like what I've seen so far. I think Maeby's episode was my favorite one so far. I loved her acceptance speech at the Opie's awards show, and I thought she was generally a funnier character than she's been previously. Lucille's episode was also fantastic, of course. She's still my favorite character, and anything she says or does never fails to crack me up! And Gob's episodes were great as well!

I think the only character I'm kind of disappointed in this season is Tobias. The Fantastic 4 storyline and his new love interest just aren't really doing it for me. He does have his moments, though, so it's not all bad. I still haven't seen Buster's or George Michael's episodes, and I have high hopes for both of them!

And I think it goes without saying that my favorite thing about the new season of Arrested Development is a certain long-necked, feathery individual.


Cindy the Ostrich! Side-note: the ostrich-like sound Lucille 2 makes at one point was possibly my favorite moment of season 4.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
