Secret Valentine Community Event

Recently, Ian from Adventure Rules invited bloggers to a social event, one themed for the month of February. An event for Valentines Day, where the premise was to write a blog post showing your appreciation for a fellow blogger, randomly assigned by Ian. So with no further ado….

#24 – Grand Theft Auto III (Part 2)

For Part 1, click here

After taking Friday night off (I caught up on the Kota Ibushi/Kenny Omega reunion over some ice cream), I went back to Liberty City.

Blogger Recognition Award! What?

I’ve been quite surprised to have been nominated for anything never mind the three awards I’ve covered…so I’m shocked to have been nominated for a fourth. Thanks to Pete over at Moegamer, I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award.
