Got caught in the rain today with +Katie Collins , but managed to have a great time seeing The Merchant of Venice anyway. It's good to know how quickly seersucker dries. And given that so many people are without power or dealing with fallen trees tonight, I really can't complain about feeling a bit damp in the theater.

Just bought Portal 2 for Xbox! I've got to make use of this thing one way or the other. Hopefully +Katie Collins won't mind a little obsession. +Cameron Sabel , does Portal allow cross-platform co-op mode?
