US News Wrap, August 18 - What Happened Today

Pat flew home from Germany today. Johnny and Alex leave tomorrow. This doesn't mean we won't have more gamescom news for you though, there will be plenty over the coming days. Promise.

As for the US news lady here, she is trying to figure out how to get the swelling in her fingers to go down after all the typing.

She is also wondering if it would be fiscally prudent to hop a plane to Atlanta tonight, rent a car, drive two hours, knock on her best friend's door, and scream in her face: "Happy Birthday tramp, and remember, you will always be older than me no matter what!" before jumping back in the car all Duke Boys style and driving off before she gets punched. She would then drive two more hours to Atlanta, drop off the car, and hop the 45 minute flight back home.

It's tempting, to her, let me assure you. Unfortunately, she is not so brazen. Let her dream, though.
