The Cake is a Lie

In case this is you:


or if you have been living under a rock for 5 years...

...you may be interested to know that you don't have to wait until 2013 to know why the cake is a lie. From now until May 24th, Valve is offering Portal for free to PC and Mac users. Get it while it's hot, people!

http://store.steampowered.com/freeportal/

Seriously, go get it now. There's a good reason this game won a gajillion awards, and even if you don't think you'd like it, you should get it and try it anyway. This game probably gets the most wide personal endorsement I have ever given to a game... Yes, it is worth signing up for a free Steam account to play it (since presumably that will be required).

People with no internet connections on the computer they play games on are exempt =P

Non-swinging cats.

Alan was kind enough to look after my cats while I was on a recent trip out of town. Little did I know that he was just looking for photography subjects who work cheap! Anyway, long story short, here are a bunch of pictures he took of AC/TC :)

AC is the one with more white, and the creepy eyes.
TC is... the other one. (Larger, blacker, friendlier, but apparently harder to get to hold still for the camera).

These two are particular favorites of mine. Of course, they are all good.

Thanks, Alan! Extra special kudos for managing to get these great pics within the constraints of the cave-like lighting conditions in which I live :)


... It feels weird to see a picture of a cat without a large, white, block-lettered and misspelled caption, doesn't it?
