Friday Snippets

Weekend Eve. I'm certainly ready for it. And tonight, a friend and I are going to Bed, Bath, & Beyond so I can get a new kitchen knife. I think I'm going to get a Chinese-style cleaver. I've always wanted one and you can use them for just about anything. But before I get that and make some yummy things, let's nibble on a bite-sized gaming story. There's just one, but it's a sweet treat that you actually shouldn't eat (though they look good enough to).
