What we’re playing: Catching up edition


Long weekends (like last weekend) are always nice, but then again, they always seem to make the next week that much more hectic. If you can believe it, the guy in the picture above was actually partying in Cabo over Memorial Day weekend. And now look at him…he’s miserable!

Thankfully the weekend’s here, and having talked with a several few people at the office, it sounds like folks are looking to get the heck outta Dodge. It’s the opposite for me. I’m relieved to not be traveling for a change, and I’m looking forward to coming into the office so I can spend some time playing Fallout 3!

Hope you all have a great weekend. Here’s the game’s we’ll be playing…

    You must focus thy anger paul. Let it consume thee and you it. Til all that remains is a unstoppable raging inferno engine of all destroying hatred. In this way shall your faith be strong in the Emperor.
