I know, again with the allergies. This is a very slight exaggeration of what it looks like when I have an “attack”. Usually my left eye swells up and feels like there is sand in it. Then there is the uncontrollable sneeze tirades. It is a burden, and the only sure fire way to not have an allergy attack is to not go outside.

This past weekend the great outdoors, or as I like to call it, “horse shit”, gave me a new kind of “reaction.” I was helping my father put a new liner in his pool when I found myself awash in the primordial muck that had congealed  at the bottom of the pool. Yes it was gross, as it was also mixed with sand, which gave me that “not so fresh feeling”. The real surprise was when, after a few moments, the entire front of my body bloomed into a seething rash. It was glorious. I did however vanquish the sun with liberal amounts of baby 100 SPF sun block. I was only slightly sunburnt.

I played a few demos over the last week. I tried out Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale. It was what one would expect. Top down, item droppin’ tedium. Seemed a little dated, and bland. I will not be purchasing the full title. I also played the Red Faction: Armageddon demo. I enjoyed myself, and am considering a purchase of the game when the price drops. The “nano building” of destroyed objects seemed out of place, as did the enemy creatures. The black hole and magnet gun, were a lot of fun once I got the hang of them. I also tried the demo for Scott Pilgrim vs the World. I know this has been out for a long time, but I am just now getting around to trying it. The movie is one of my all time favorites, and i always loved a good side scrolling beat em up. SPVTW got pretty repetitive pretty quickly. I also felt like moving up and down on the screen felt like I was wading through molasses, which I do on occasion, so I know what I am talking about. I do not think I will pick up this title.

I think I may get Duke Nukem , but have not yet decided. Someone convince me. Thats all for now.
