Well, that's not entirely true. I just played with a friend of mine last night. Another friend plays with his daughter. A third friend has every card in the game except the two you get for getting all 50 medals. So even though I'm an early player and fan, I've only recently (with the purchase of a PS2) gotten serious about it.

I've been farming cards for 4 days with 4 characters, running automagically when I'm not there or in the background of my regular life. When I'm not doing anything important (and, for the record, Welsh Girl has been working evenings all week so I certainly haven't been neglecting her), I control the farming to get the maximum amount of cards per hour that I can. With this in mind, why do I not have one Aura Blade? Why do I only have one Drain Magic between 4 characters? Only one Nike? Only one Sphinx? Alright, the Sphinx is rare so I understand that like I understand not having a Gouda, but damn! My first deck back in the day I had all those in abundance. Hell, I got 2 Goudas on my first day with a PS2 before it got stolen! Why, oh why, can't I get just one? And without all this stuff, how am I going to rebuild the most awesome deck in the history of the entire game? Don't get me wrong, my current deck is nothing to sneeze at. In fact it's pretty damn tough, but my red deck has a few holes in it that can be easily exploited by blue. On the other hand, the yellow deck I used to have was strong against any color and now I have a few cards I didn't have before (4 Revivals, anyone?) that would make it even more kickass. Gaaaah!

We're going to visit the Welsh family for Father's day. I may take Guitar Hero (borrowed since I haven't taken the leap yet) since Welsh Dad is a guitar player and might get a kick out of it. That and for some reason I'm a little leery of leaving my new baby alone in my apartment for 2 days while I'm out of town. I just got a second controller and Soulcalibur 3 so now I have something to play against Welsh Girl's roommate.
Alright, yes, yes, yes, I have PS2 on the brain right now! And you know what, I deserve it!
No D&D tonight as one player is gone and the DM is feeling ill. That's good because it's Welsh Girl's night off and I would like to give her some serious lurvin' after we're done visiting Roommate Girl and her boyfriend. I wonder if he has a PS2...
One of these days this weekend I'm going to start my WFC entry, maybe while I'm card farming or something, though, I wonder of the PS2 has a word processor...
Alright, I'm messing with you with that last bit. I think I'm done for now. If I have anything else serious to report, I shall forthwith or maybe tomorrow.
That is all.
