My first time using the cut feature. Nifty, no? I like it. I'd been meaning to look up how to do it for a while. Go lj! :)
Umm. So I hung out with brandon last night. He came over and we played chess -- a rather difficult game where he had the upper hand all the way through to the end, though neither of us made any truly heinous mistakes. I did manage to get him in the endgame, though. My heart was pounding -- I was down a bishop and two pawns. I had four pawns and a rook. Managed to trap his king on his home row.
Then we went out and played pool and I did my best to get hammered while not spending TOO much. Started with a mind eraser, followed with a vodka sour, and drove it home with an extra-heavy long island iced tea. We played some pretty horrible pool, but it was a lot of fun.
I talked to noah (icq) yesterday, and that was good. Sounds like things are going better for him. I keep meaning to hang out with him. I have too many disparate friends. Maybe I should make a list of people I hang out with/like to hang out with, and then see if I can't make some sort of sense out of all that.
Brandon, James, Michael, Noah, Nova (there's a critter I haven't seen in ages!), Shweta [maybe I shouldn't be making this list -- if I leave someone off, I'm going to be cremated] ... Richard ...
I'm going to go try and clean up my inbox. I'm at 300 messages or so, some that have been waiting for a reply since April. :oops:
