Or would that be “thees”?

I have a giveaway going on right now so let’s just get that out of the way at the get-go.  Click here to read my review of MilkBank and comment to win your own.

Next, you may know [well, you do now] that I write for SimsGamer.com and I’ve posted some answers from a developer of Sims 3 to questions that I had as well as questions that readers had.  You can read that here.

Last but not least, I also write for GamerLite.com and posted my review of Flower which you can find on PSN [PlayStation Network].  Really beautiful game.  You can find that review here.

I made a pot of beans tonight.  Actually soaked those bitches myself and cooked them.  No from the can in this house! [At least not tonight, anyway.]  I used half a pound [1/2 a bag] of kidney beans and half a pound of chickpeas [aka garbanzo beans].  I put the beans in a big pot and covered them with hot water.  I let them hang out in the water until it got murky-about two hours.  I drained off the water and then repeated about five times-total soak time of about six hours.  I rinsed the beans and added a couple of cloves of garlic to the pot.  Then I added about three teaspoons worth of dried thyme and a teaspoon of dried basil.   Then came the bacon grease.  You can’t be from the South and not have a cup of bacon grease in the fridge.  I probably used about two tablespoons worth of bacon grease.  I then added a packet of dried onion soup mix and covered the pot with aluminum foil and set it to simmer for about two hours.  When everything was said and done I had a pot of beans to write on my site about.

Tucker has a temporary job.  He’s helping one of my uncles clean out the house that my cousin who committed suicide owned.  Lots of manual labor since they’re having to clear out a lot of broken limbs from the ice storm but I can already tell a difference in Tucker’s mood.  Tucker not being able to find a job is really wearing on him and even though he’s been gone for ten hours a day, it’s good to see him in better spirits.

That’s about all I have for tonight.  I’m a slacker today and tomorrow I plan on indulging in some more PS3 action.  I’ve been denying my gamer self for way too long and I have to have my fix.
