Vyrin Visits

Colin (vyrin) dropped in this afternoon on his whirlwind weekend tour of Colorado. Kung Fu Monkey was at work most of the afternoon, but Colin and his friend Sarah and I hung out.

Much conversation of no particular unifying theme. Got to hear neat stories about Burning Man. We grabbed some food at NooCo, then loaned Sarah some superglue to fix her sunglasses before she took off.

Showed off Pikmin 2 (insert pikmin "yay" here), then played a quick game of Strange Synergy before I dropped him off at the bus for the airport. I got a pretty good power combo (rocket skates + flamethrower + robot body), but he got one that was just unbeatable (intangibility + freeze + inner peace = total invulnerability), so I had to concede. Not bad for a first-timer!

A short visit, but fun. Now I'm trying to figure out when I can manage another trip to SF.
