Yesterday, after another rough night of indigestion that prevented me from getting any sleep... yet again
... I forced myself to get to work, the last day of work before my Christmas break began. For the trip back, my air conditioner decided to die and leave me sweltering in the 90 degree heat. Over the course of the day, the sore throat that I had been nursing all week gave way to a full-blown cold. As of this moment, I still haven't regained my voice.
Oh, and the job I drive an hour to and an hour from? The one I willed myself to go to that morning? Yeah, I no longer have that job.
On the positive side, I can finally catch up on my backlog and start pumping out more articles. I'm also doing some writing over at Gamer Limit
, but who isn't, honestly? Half the Cblogs is working over there now! It's a party! Come visit us!
All in all, I think I'm still gonna have a lovely Christmas. That won't stop me from spreading a little humbug:
*- SykoShadow explains how the further games strive for "realism," the more disconcerting they become.
*- walkyourpath's five-step program for overcoming griefing, yours for only three easy installments of $19.99!
*- I fear for Elsa's husband if he ever decides to break from her.
*- Yeah... YEAH! I'm diggin' your style, BenelliM4! Flash games like those you listed need more respect!

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
