Wow. What a crazy week. Going to a rock show on a whim and meeting GARY FREAKING NUMAN. Interviewing for a job I didn’t even know I wanted until I was invited to interview. And more or less confirming my attendance at PAX East this year. Looks like everything’s coming up Milhouse.

This weekend will likely involve some practice runs for a new super-secret project Rick and I are working on (although honestly, I cannot wait to spill the beans on this one), sprucing up the bedroom for spring and probably a trip to the Jean Talon Market.

Have you entered my Mercenary Kings giveaway yet? I’ve got 5 copies of the game on Steam up for grabs. Contest closes April 3, so don’t delay!

Also, get your posts ready for the March installment of Gadabout Gamers on Monday. This month’s theme is I Am/Not My Avatar.

On to the links:

    Props to that teacher. And Candy Crush not only makes me sick with it’s incessant and overwhelming “friend requests” but everything else I’ve read about King (and that now includes the above link) has made me sick.
    They are like the monsanto of mobile gaming.
