So I played 2 games at lunch, G/10. Was fun. Lost both. The first one I had the better game, I traded a rook and pawn for two pieces, so it was a rook and two bishops against two rooks. This is a better endgame for me, but I didn't really have time to play it right and botched it. The second game, I got creamed by some other guy. It was like a full court press.

Inside: Nook or Kindle?

And: Ipod Touch or other fun device?

Baseball was decent. $HOMETEAM lost. Had beer, got to talk about wizards and hobbits with wizards and hobbits guy instead of getting a seat next to some guy that would only talk about baseball the whole damn time, so that worked well.

Also: eating cats, Star Wars, and all that jazz.

I "invented" cream cheese and avocado sandwiches for teh wife last night. I'm sure they're nothing new, but teh wife really enjoyed them because she likes cream cheese and she likes avocados. I am a genius.

Oh, crap, I forgot to take the garbage out this morning. Well, short-lived victories.

The thing about Mare Nostrum is that the ending is always pretty close, so it often becomes a matter of who will be the kingmaker.

As a man, or at least as a sociopath, I do not have feelings and think instead. The source of the title quote is contested, but I pulled it from somebody at IGX.
