come and get me

January 19, 2007 - Snow!

January 19, 2007Snow!   This is the first "real" snow we've had that actually stuck - what I woke up to Friday morning.  Taken from my bathroom vanity window in the morning.

Of course, I actually ended up blowing off work early and heading out to Pennsylvania to pick up a used PS2 from BG, and then go through an obstacle course of horrendous proportions trying to exchange his old games for a DDR game.  Geez.  No, I do not want your stupid discount card, EB games.

But I did get dinner out of the deal, and an excuse to blow off work early.

January 20, 2007 - Boardgaming

January 20, 2007More boardgaming (although I trekked about an hour away for this - not sure if I'll make that drive again) - this is from a game called Battlelords, which kicked my butt. Stupid Frenchmen.

I also got to play a game called Guillotine, which I loved, and Killer Bunnies, which is so much better when you start with a bunny.

I did, however, try the macro setting for the first time, and I think this picture turned out rather nicely.

Then, after everything broke up, I wandered around what seemed to be the entire state of New Jersey, looking to trade in the DDR Supernova I got that wouldn't load, for one that did.  Mission accomplished.

January 21, 2007 - Dance Dance Revolution!

January 21, 2007Welcome to my new obsession.   I played this sucker for two hours in the morning, attempting to unlock "dance dance" by fallout boy by completing the stellar quests  [I found out the next day thanks to the web that I'm just an eejiot, and they were there all along].

But man, this is addictive and a ton of fun.  I like the Supernova much better than the Extreme2, and my dog is not thrilled with either of them, really.   And why yes, I did buy a PS2 just for the DDR; stepmania was too much of a PITA to get loaded and work.
KH - no problems

January 22, 2007 - Early Bedtime

January 22, 2007This is what my bedside table looked like when I was ready to go to bed. I even went to bed before Heroes, as you can see!

Too bad I picked up the book and didn't get to sleep until 11pm, and then woke up at 3 am and couldn't sleep, so I watched Heroes instead.

... I did finish the book, though - this might be a good way to track what books I read...
