Scorched Earth

I’m not much of a gamer. (For great posts about gaming, check out Paul Weimer‘s Roll Perception Plus Awareness column over at SF Signal.) But every once in a while I come across a game that I used to play that I really enjoyed. I’ve written about Stunts and LHX and one of my all-time-favorites, […]

Facebook game requests

For reasons I am not clear on, I have received a flood of game requests for the various games that are played in the Facebook world. To save potential game requesters a little bit of time in the future (and to quote President Obama): “Let me be clear…” I don’t do Facebook games. Please don’t […]

I don’t do Facebook games

Since the number of requests that I receive to participate in various Facebook games seems to be going up, I thought I’d take a brief moment to make my position of Facebook games unequivocally clear: I don’t do Facebook games. This is nothing personal. But if you were to take a look at my schedule, […]

Valentine’s day in Albany

I gave Kelly her Valentine’s gift yesterday, since we had a busy day today, and she gave me not one but two cards this morning, which made me realize that I hadn’t gotten her any cards.  Nevertheless, we had a very nice Valentine’s day–our first as a married couple.  I was up at 6 AM to feed the […]

Another Rock Band day

We slept in this morning, which was nice.  I think we were finally up at around 9 AM.  Kelly made waffles, with the waffle-maker we received from AJ and Denisse.  After breakfast, I went to the concierge to collect the package we received yesterday.  I turned out to be the stroller that Jason and Logan got for […]

Lego Star Wars

Productive work day today.  It was one of those days where I told myself that I was going to solve a particular problem before I left the office, and sure enough, shortly after lunch, I had the problem solved.  I was pleased with that. I had leftovers for dinner and steamed some broccoli for Kelly to go along with […]

Election day, part 1

I was up ridiculously late last night–until almost 2 AM.  I started playing Tiger Woods 2009 at around 9:30 PM and ended up in a tournament that I eventually won, but it took a long, long time.  I can’t recall the last time I did something like that.  Nevertheless, I was up at 6:30 this morning, excited for […]

Rockin’ out and cleanin’ house

Last night we went t a friend’s house to play Rock Band.  It was my first time playing.  We started the evening off with some good pizza from a local pizza joint.  The three of us started playing Rock Band around 8:30 PM.  When we finally decided to call it quits, it was nearly 1:30 AM! […]

Scrabulous!

kruppenheimer and I finished our marathon game of Scrabulous on facebook today. Lisa made a come-from-behind win. She has more to say about it here including a final image of our game board. Congratulations, Lisa!

We’re cheating on video games now?

This has probably been going on for quite some time, right under my nose, but my attention was drawn to it by this Yahoo!Tech article I saw this morning. Apparently, cheating at video games has been steadily on the rise and has become enough of a problem that cheaters are being punished. Set aside the […]

New York weekend, day 1

[Written on November 12, 2007] Kelly and I hit the road at 7 AM. The GPS predicted a 11:12 AM arrival in Stony Point at vickyandnorm‘s house. We were there at almost exactly 11 AM. Boy, making that drive with someone to talk to in the car makes a huge difference. The time flew by […]

I don’t need your civil war

[Posted on Monday, October 22] Today, Kelly and I went up to Gettysburg with AJ and Denisse. We picked AJ and Denisse up from the P.G. Plaza metro station at about 10:30 AM and hit the road. The drive to Gettysburg took us about 90 minutes and it was a lot of fun. We passed […]
