Okay, okay, I may have missed the weekend there. Punctuality is clearly not my strong point. Once again, though, the weekend has steam rolled through our collective lives, leaving behind a mess of bodies and squashed pizzas. So, let’s chat.
I missed last weekend’s Weekend Whammy, but I’m back and as mediocre as ever! HUZZAH! And this damn cold I’ve had since New Year finally seems to be loosening its grasp on me. I still feel rough around the edges, but I’m considerably better than I was, so let’s do this!
By this weekend I was meant to have my review of Smoke and Sacrifice posted for all the world to read and scoff at. You might have noticed that hasn’t happened. The reason is that pesky cold I caught around New Year has now managed to burrow its way into my sinuses and ears and clog everything up. My right ear feels like it has an ear plug in it, I can’t stand up without falling flat on my face, I’m bouncing madly between being too hot and being too cold, and I have the constant urge to throw up. Needless to say, I am not a happy bunny right now.
Could you not stare at the screen so loudly? I’m nursing a hangover here. Yes, stupid me was out drinking at the weekend but forgot I was on some heavy medication, so now I’ve got a headache and killer stomach ache. Ah well, ’twas a good night filled with fun and friends.
It’s the first weekend after the madness of Christmas! I hope everyone reading this had a hell of a time, regardless of how you chose to spend it. Me? I had a good one filled with family and good food. But I also seem to have picked up a cold from somewhere, so right now I’m huddled up in a dressing gown and yelling at anyone who isn’t bringing me Lemsips.
Oh, hello there, weekend! I didn’t see you standing menacingly in the shadows. How are you these fine holidays? What? What’s that? Why have you got that!? No! NO! NOOOOO! Stop stabbing me with a candy cane, you foul beast! ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!
I blinked suddenly the weekend was nearly over! What the hell is that about? And there’s just over a week until Christmas? Oh god.
The weekend has snuck up like some sort of professional hitman and executed a perfect stealth take down on my sorry excuse for a body. Still, weekends mean its time to pack in a whole lot of gaming, movies, books and other entertainment. Let’s do it!
I’m going to keep this one relatively brief as my new nephew (he’s four months old) has come to visit this weekend. For the most part I’ve been putting in the time with Darksiders 3, a game I’ve been eagerly awaiting and was genuinely afraid we’d never see given the IP was in limbo for a long time. It hasn’t blown me away so far and I do sort of miss the loot system from Darksiders 2, but it has been a pretty solid action romp with awesome art design.
My five-year old niece has now reached the point of reminding me how many sleeps there are until Christmas, and all I can think about is how the sight of Christmas decorations makes me angry BECAUSE IT’S STILL NOVEMBER, YOU ~£@££! PIECES OF @!=*$%^! I love Christmas, but I swear in September there were stores putting Christmas themed stuff out and Halloween hadn’t even been and gone. What the hell?
It’s the weekend yet again, and that can only mean that time is passing way too damn fast and that we’re all hurtling towards our undignified ends like a runaway truck that’s on fire.
