So a friend of mine had an extra copy of Half Life Two, Episode One, and gave it to me. I realized that I would have to either play it or look for a job, and the course became clear: I have to get the achievement for launching the gnome into space. That's right, I'm going to get one of the harder achievements in video games, and I'm not going to use a guide. I'll have updates of my progress as I go.
Yes, I know that people that are more interesting than me have done this months, or even years, ago. I don't need your sass.
