As we’re sitting in the last 15 days of 2007, it’s only natural that we look back at the year that was, and ahead to the year that will be.  2007 was an amazing year for video games, especially in the last half of the year–Halo 3, CoD4, the Orange Box, Assassin’s Creed, Bioshock, Super […]

  I’m glad to say that I’ve done my part in getting this year’s online word of the year recognized in my circle of association.  It’s a word that Rachel has used with confidence for months now, even though she’s never had occasion to use it whilst acquiring “teh lewt”.  I’ve realized that I can spend […]
