I was perusing Facebook the other day and I occasionally get those ridiculous “Like for a prayer or say Amen” kind of posts.I don’t follow them but they occasionally appear […]

    Re-Play Borderlands: Catch-a-Ride Shenanigans

    After getting Braindead addicted to Borderlands 2 (sorry Mrs Braindead),  We felt he should play the original so we are doing a play through of Borderlands 1 every Sunday morning. About 6 levels in however the Catch-a-ride wouldn’t let us carry on….

    His and Her’s: The Miscarriage Survival Guide

    Being the anniversary of possibly the largest event to affect our lives, we’ve separately reflected on what it means and how it has affected us. 

  • Re-Play: Borderlands

    Borderlands was originally released in 2009. It seems I was under the mistaken impression that I had actually completed it, that I suppose is the danger of playing it originally with 3 others who all reinforced this theory.

    National Space Centre:Return of the Garrison

    The 501st UK Garison invaded the National Space centre last weekend for their “Return of the Garrison” event.

  • Mrs G’s Em-Con….

Last year we were one of the lucky ones, Early bird tickets, and fairly comfortable Q&A seats. There were however many people who were left with quite frankly an awful experience.
