These are a few of my favorite things

I was updating my profile this morning when I came to realize that

1) Lost got over waaaaay too late last night,
2) I really shouldn't have drank so much on a Sunday,
3) I really don't do any actual work while I'm at work anymore,
4) I really like making lists, and
5) it might be fun to share some of this drivel with the community in a more "formal" way.

Thus, the reason behind the blog post you are currently (about to stop) reading.

Now, don't let your hopes fly too high: there's nothing crazy, mind-altering or Earth-shattering in here. Hell, I'm not even sure that I'm satisfied with all my choices yet.

No, these are just some things that make me happy in the world of videogames, and I thought you might enjoy reading about and discussing them.

So, in the words of Deckard Cain, "Stay a while and listen!"

PS - This is the only image you're getting, because I am too hungover to GIS today. Occam, wanna help a brother out?
