It was Thanksgiving weekend. It's not anymore. I'm back!... and just found this:
"Hey Bret, at work i never do work, instead i just wander the internet. i have specific pages i frequent, lordsofpain, gamespot, facebook... recently, i have found myself checking your blog just as often as i check the wrestling gossip pages, and that's often, i'm talking multiple times a day. In conclusion, update your blog every hour or so instead of every couple of days, i can only read the same blog entrie so many time."
Not a bad idea! Another good idea, though, would be finding me with facebook's scrabulous (get it... fabulous scrabble... get it?). Seth and Erica are also hooked, and I think we'd all be open to any and all challengers to help pass the day. I am currently owning Patrick from Colour Revolt (I KNOW YOU GOOGLE YOUR BAND'S NAME, I KNOW YOU SEE THIS - I AM OWNING YOU) and - this just doesn't seem right - am ahead of the lady friend 130-13. After two turns.
Consider yourself warned, anonymous future scrabble friends.
But now - a post. I want to compile a You-Me-Go Christmas list from last post's comment section for our electronic chimney... if anyone wants to add, I think I'm giving it another day or two. Some very good ideas, though.
My cousin had advice... but it was video game advice. I loved it but you may not.
Feel free to skip the next two videos!
(or to love them... it's okay if you love them with me)
You talk with aliens as if you were in a movie... and then it seems like you get to shoot some of them. I was very excited about the talking part. He thought it was strange that I wanted to know if "foreign diplomacy" was crucial to the gameplay. I think it kind of is, though. Maybe.
That would be SWEET.

Obviously, you are an assassin. I am guessing there is more killing involved (crusaders, as opposed to aliens). However! You are, perhaps, a more realistic assassin who gets rewarded for walking slowly, not drawing attention to yourself, eavesdropping on conversations, and engaging in small talk with the locals.
Me: "So you have to walk everywhere? You can't run??"
Cousin: "No, the guards will get you."
Me: "They don't notice the big sword on your back?"
Cousin: "Not if you walk."
Cousin: "You might have to hang out in the village for hours to figure out what you're supposed to do next."
Me: "THAT IS AWESOME."
If I had an X-Box, Santa could fill his sleigh right now.
I forgot about the time change, though, and my previously mentioned friend might have split from work already. I will hit post, though, and hope for the best!
