In other news, the management sent us a nice little note reminding us that our lease is up as of August 30, and if we re-up for a full year they'll graciously reduce the rent to $799 from whatever insane amount they charge month-to-month renters, otherwise they want to know by the end of the month if we're planning on leaving. Consensus is that we will be, and to separate apartments; I want a place of my own, and so does Scott. Melody is correct that splitting a two-bedroom place would be cheaper, but they want to live in one of the Twin Cities and I don't. It's time for them to get out on their own and experience independent living in all its hideous complexity. So, I guess we'll be having a moving party at the end of August once we figure out where we're all going.
Finally, there's the Carnival of Gamers to look at as your Thursday chunk of linkagery.
UPDATE @1610: My man Cobb is on a roll. Start with the "Acting White" post and move on down to "Microsoft v. Google". Mmmm, tasty.
