Cblogs of 2/8/09 + SilverDragonisms


Guys I have to be honest here. The Cblogs really just bored the hell out of me this weekend. There was little, if not anything, really worth while to read and I found myself struggling to even finish reading most of the blogs posted. There were some fail blogs that were just flat out horrendous, that made me want to permanently ban those people from ever even writing a blog again. Suffice to say, the cblogs disappointed me this weekend. Here's to hoping things are better next weekend.

Just for the record, I plan on finally beating Fallout 3 this week. After 60 hours, I've finished pretty much every quest in the game, and I'm ready to move on. I'm at the point now where I'm just completely exhausted with the game, and I'm honestly pretty damn tired of it. There is only so much scorched wasteland you can look before you realize how extremely depressing, lonely, and empty this game is. I just want it ot be over with so I can move on to something more colorful and upbeat.

That's enough of me complaining for one night. Time for the recaps ...
