Whee! Blogging from the Joneses' basement, where bryree has joined them and us for DDR. I'm all fat with wintertime lack of exercise, but feeling pretty energetic tonight, despite the too-spicy lamb curry (-oid) stuff I made last night seriously disagreeing with me earlier in the evening. Oy vey.

Bryan came over and hung out with us last night, too. There was some playing of Jerry's new toy (an original R.O.B. the Robot for the Nintendo, complete in the box with all the stuff and everything), which necessitated me running off to Target for a D battery. Those suckers are getting kinda hard to find! And they're HYOOOOGE! Makes old technology just seem unbearably klunky compared to modern stuff. An entire Atari console and, like, a dozen game cartridges will now fit inside the joystick. We reminisced (there was also Duck Hunt), and I remember one of the neighbor kids, Joe Lyon I think, playing Yar's Revenge on my Atari one afternoon until he rolled the score over...

Today at work I finally finished the one simple change that I was planning on busting out Monday that pushed, like, eight levels of stack deep across a dozen classes. Gah. But it's done! So that's nice.

Oh! And we played Munchkin Fu. I got to have Drunken Monkey Kung Fu *and* Banana Fu. And I won! So again with the yay.
