Random - Being sick is blagh & update of week

Been sick over the weekend and the last two days while Wednesday we were just all our busy. We finally got around to getting the uDraw (on Xbox) purely because it was on special (2x $20) with Pictionary and got Marvel Super Hero Squad Comic Combat as well on order.

Again.. We'd never buy them full priced but on special we were fine with that.

Pictionary was a bit of fun. Most of my frustration was getting used to the uDraw first up. I think I'll be using the uDraw's Instant Artist a bit to get used to it since I've not done any tablet-based drawing compared to Tmara who has (and picked it up easily).

Also, because tonight I got paid: I paid for our Star Wars Card Game order and looking forward to that when it arrives :D If only Pinnacle Games could make it arrive by the weekend. Yeah.. right, and pigs fly! >.>

We've yet to play another board game except did play a game of Big Bang Theory: Fact or Fiction (and lost to the 13 year old! >.>) but not comfortable making comments on that quite yet (re: previous bracketed comment).

I've also torn myself away from playing Kingdoms of Amalur and put the monitor finally back to the PC. I actually got to level 33 and into the 2nd last zone on the map and we finished the Dead Kel DLC (almost) where I got a glitch.. I got annoyed enough that I've restarted, this time on hard difficulty (for achievement) and making sure I don't miss the missable achievements this time and crossing fingers on the quest glitch that I was hit with.

I'm actually thankful there is an aspect of the game that annoys me since otherwise I love it to bits. Given time, I will work out doing a review on it. I believe I will do that before I get our copies of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen next Tuesday, eventhough I haven't finished Amalur yet I feel comfortable enough with what I would write.

Anyway, with that.. I start work again tomorrow and early than normal again with call centre.
