Weekends always put me out of touch.

Didn’t get on the computer much this weekend, and what little I did was spent playing the Wrath of the Lich King beta, so I’m once again two days behind on what’s going on in the world. Most of Sunday was spent at my parent’s place while the wife and kid and my sister went to a bridal shower for one of my sister-in-laws. I spent most of that time napping on the couch. I also played way too much Burnout Paradise on my PS3 this weekend after starting the game over again so I could earn the trophies that were just added with the most recent patch.

In regards to World of Warcraft one thing I’m really looking forward to with the release of the WotLK expansion is a new title you can earn via an achievement. It’s an homage to the infamous Leroy Jenkins party wipe video and it’s called, appropriately enough, Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy! You gain it by killing 50 rookery whelps within 15 seconds and as a reward you gain the title “Jenkins” which shows up after your character’s name. In the case of my Dwarven Hunter it would make it appear as though his name is “Balfour Jenkins.” Given that my last name really is Jenkins then it should go without saying why this is the single most important achievement I can aspire to in the game.

Let’s see, is there anything else from the weekend worth talking about? Hmmmm. I may have helped SEB regular JethricOne convince his wife that they NEED to have a PS3 and a shiny new HDTV on Saturday. Just doing my part to stimulate the economy by getting other people to spend their money. Anything else? Nope. Guess that is it for now.
