Some quick notes

I haven't posted in a while, so I'll just toss some stuff out there and see what sticks.

Still digging the gym stuff; first time doing a bench press yesterday, and I seem to get the form reasonably well... we'll see how it goes as we add weight next time. Also, single-leg romanian deadlifts, plank walks, and some other core-exercising bits here and there involving the exercise ball. So, weight training good. Now to get some freakin' cardio.

The Fuck You, Penguin blog is strangely compelling. Thanks, tabloid17 for sharing it in your Google Reader shared items. On another note, folks, if you use Google Reader and want to see what I think of as funny, you can friend my gmail account (first initial, last name at and it *should* start showing my stuff under the Friends' Shared Items heading...

Played a bunch of Race for the Galaxy over the weekend, something like 8 games with a few different sets of opponents. I've decided that, for playing Race on a Plane, an iPhone app is needed. This app will randomly select and track the goal tiles, as well as victory points... then you'll only need to have the cards to play. Let me know if you want to test it once I have a start on it in a few weeks, or if you want to offer input on the UI or featureset.

My five-week-long sore throat mostly got better last Thursday, only to be replaced by a cold... but the cold was over by Saturday night, thankfully. So I had a pretty good weekend all in all.

In other news, it seems I have fallen head-over-heels in love.

Life is oh so good.
