Art of the Grind

Gaming has taught me a lot in life. Mostly that I have a strange fashion sense, a tendency to giggle at excesses of violence and a huge AWWWWW obsession with the cute, fluffy or bouncy critters that show up in most games. But gaming has always also highlighted some of my talents, next to theseContinue reading “Art of the Grind”

The knife-block in my kitchen has a ‘bad‘ knife in it. Something I regularly find out when I end up trying to staunch the bleeding from the umpteenth cut it’s cost me. Stupid knife.
