So I sent in an application to Kaplan because I might want to moonlight for a bit for extra cash money while the wifing unit is underemployed. Apparently they run their "auditions" over webcam, which is not a medium I am familiar with at all. I am much better in person at a real whiteboard. It seems you have a small video of your head and a small textbox to type in. Not ideal.

I know in previous diaries I had a discussion about beefy tacos and all, but I am here to inform all of you that "al pastor" is the one true taco.

I played the Saruman et al. and three others played the other three roles. We lost, unfortunately. We got to 11 corruption and were within striking distance of a military victory. We didn't get many of the cruel hunt tiles into play and I think that was our downfall.

I've been rather unhappy with Fringe lately.

And: other stuff.

So I've got a cover of "Don't Worry Baby" stuck in my head. The wifing unit, apparently, doesn't approve of my falsetto attempts to sing along.

I think we'll do it in May once the tuition reimbursement payment comes through. Though we also have a lot of (airplane) travel that month, so moneys may still be tight.

So I was on the elevator after lunch, I've been playing over chess games at lunch lately and I had my chess book out, and this guy was like, "Hey man, do you play chess?" And I was like, dude, totally. So he told me they had a few people who played chess and all that and they had a team in the $CITY Industrial Chess League. Basically, once per month, they play a match against some other team that's downtown. So I'm on their mailing list.

Hung out with a few friends to watch a football game at the bar last night. Ended up spending a little more on beer than I had planned, but it's okay. The bar is, by the way, one of the best places to watch rugby, soccer, or what-have-you in the city. They have lots of soccer scarves and such on the wall and a portrait of Admiral Nelson.

We played Cities and Knights yesterday after church with a group of 4. That worked pretty well. A+ would do again. A lot of 8's got rolled, which was kind of annoying. Like, once there were 3 in a row. Good expansion, worth having, will get it sometime. We postulated that it might be cool with Seafarers, but now I'm not sure.

Go into your kitchen. Pour out a glass of milk. Tip the glass over and pour all that milk on the floor. Now do it again. That's a pint. Do it 14 more times in a row. As neat a package as a gallon of milk might be, it's a surprisingly large amount of liquid when you see it on the floor. That's how much blood a sub-250-pound human has inside. Normally.

This one's no happier than aph's Jury Duty and while a bit expository, considerably less informative. You may wish to ignore.
