Birthday no. 37 is apparently all about play. After months away from World of Warcraft, I fired up my account again and have been playing for the last couple of days. (I realized I could just unsubscribe if I wasn’t … Continue reading
Having some extra free time over the holidays, I’ve found myself indulging a bit in a favorite pastime that I’ve missed for the last few months. After spending some time on my two recent purchases — The Movies and Civilization … Continue reading
