I suppose I should say something witty and humorous, but right now, I’m tired, thirsty, and happen to be slowly melting due to some oppressive heat. Not that I mind the heat, I still love it, but even I have my limits.

So I bought a fan last night in order to give me some cooling relief, but wouldn’t you know it, the damn thing looked as if Ace Ventura had handled the delivery. It was cracked and battered, and the shop was closed. Now, I need to take it back, but the damn cat has hopped into the box, and any attempt to remove her is met with a multi-coloured paw of sharp claws and speed.

I think I might not survive the weekend if I don’t get this fan returned on time for a new one.

In Other News: We get all motion-controlley with some Angry Birds, hit the basketball courts with Justin Bieber and we hear that Sony has some interesting stuff lined up for E3. Here’s the news that we didn’t post, because I was too busy passing out from blood loss after the cat managed to score a maximum combo attack on my hands.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
