152 "Noodles (Measured in Oodles)"
November 23, 2012

Preparing the correct amount of spaghetti is a dangerous task, requiring a certain degree of trial and error. Or some kind of spaghetti measuring device. Is there anything that those cold, unthinking machines can't quantify with obscenely accurate calculation? I'm pretty sure "noodles" was the last thing on that list.

Hopefully everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving, and used that opportunity to be grateful for what they have so as to not be savagely killed in any shopping incidents today. I'm absolutely tickled at the notion that a national "holiday" which has absolutely been the cause of several deaths and injuries throughout the years is still recognized, celebrated, and practiced--especially given that it comes immediately after Thanksgiving. It really goes to show how far we've come as a civilized species. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll step down from my soapbox.

Speaking of sales, it seems as though someone at Steam felt that they haven't pumped enough deals into their year. Their current Autumn Sale is like some terrible omen, reminding us of the financial woe that will surely be wrought next month as we beg Steam to swim in our money and no one else's by making sure that they get lots and lots of it. I still have games from last Christmas that I haven't played yet. Please, Steam, stop this madness. For the good of wallets everywhere.
