...in here today.

I should really stop playing with my PS3 and not neglect my duties.

On the other hand, Gran Turismo is pretty bloody good, as is Burnout Paradise!

I love Scrubs!
Unusually cool and gloomy afternoon in Dallas today (for late April). Think I'll settle on the couch with the dog and hubby and watch Michael Clayton.

I don't have one.


But then I wouldn't want one either. I don't 'do' gaming. I find it all very tedious and boring.

Each to their own. Very Happy

Yeah, quite. I just take satisfaction in knowing that PC gaming can never be overtaken by 3rd Gen consoles, because PCs can be updated for far less money.

No GTAIV planned for PC though. Which is a shame. It's out tonight!

I may just have to buy a PS3 now. I don't actually have a PC myself so I probably will. Apple all the way, me...

I'm gonna have to run around and find GTA from a shop tomorrow, would have pre-ordered it but MrsMT suprised me with the PS3.

I think the two platforms have different uses. It's a very different experience playing games sat at a computer, to playing sat on a couch in a lounge. As I am a rabid gamer, I do both Smile

I was faced with a choice at a difficult age: should I buy an Amiga or a drum kit?

Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll won. Well, the odd drunken fumble, badly-rolled spliffs and dodgy Billy Idol covers, anyway.

I was lucky, I got the Spectrum and my brother already had a drumkit. Neither of which helped my sex life in any way at all, maybe I should have tried Billy Idol covers, a drunken fumble is better than nothing.

Thinking about it, any female recipients of my drunken fumblings may have been (a) supremely impressed by my displays of polyrhythmic dexterity when playing U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (officially the second hardest song to drum ever, after "Grace Under Pressure"), or (b) off their heads on cheap cider. Hmmm....

Think if you pushed the cider first, your polyrhythmic dexterity may have been appreciated in a different way ! Wink

You know when Lily Allen rhymed "Tesco" with "al fresco", I reckon she should do the same with "Spectrum" and "plectrum". An ode to teenage boys staying in and playing with themselves... erm, that sounds dodgier than it actually is Embarassed

It's like the Marie Celeste in here today! Perhaps the lolcats and roflcopters weren't such a bad idea...

I worry that the novelty is wearing off. Also since I got kicked off the Elbow friends list on MySpace I haven't been able to promote the site, so the rate of new members joining has dropped Sad
