Playing Call Of Duty
Elspeth: We really need to think about this, I mean there has to be a better way.
Liliana: Oh no, at this rate I'll have all of Europe covered in Bone splinters by sundown.


Watching Spiderman
Elspeth: What a traitor, I mean HE LEFT HIS FAMILY AND THEN FEELS ENTITLED TO DISRUPT EVERYONES LIFE ?
Liliana: I think it's hot that he won't tell anyone about what I do to him.

On my first "Drive to Work" podcast (#302) I talk about the Head-to-Head voting competition I started on my Twitter and how it was years in the making.

"Search your library for Zombie Elspeth and Zombie Garruk creature cards and put them onto the battlefield tapped" lol

I thought of a good name walking around after wwe.

Dancer of Breaths or A spell or enchantment called The Dance of Breaths... I dunno what it would do but I bet it would have something to do with repetition, change and oxygen being utilized by the body.
