Life happens and come and goes around sometimes, I guess. Today half the team I work on, including a co-worker that I had known for quite some time, was laid off. Bam, just like that, I never even saw it coming.
Life is mean sometimes, but what would life be…
Also, now I hurt and am sore.
I think that, if I was as good at snowboarding as I was at skiing, I would probably prefer it by a long shot, but I’m not there yet.
So I went over to my friend’s house today, and while I was there, he and another friend spent a considerable amount of time discussing the various details of their plans to acquire every Pokémon in the latest Pokémon game. They talked about how he had a Whoosher and he hard a hard time getting the Kiglebat and how he needed the Bellittlebox to make the Showlinxtre evolve. (Yeah I’m making that part up, but only because I can’t remember the details; this is the only point of mitigation that I can claim on this post.)
After that was over we whipped out ye many-years-old Yu-Gi-Oh card game decks, and not only did we have a crazy couple battles, one in which I cleaned up against the other players and one in which I barely pinched by on the wire, but we actually managed to show some semblance of remembering the rules!
What a handful of 20+ year old males have business doing either of those, I don’t know, even if it’s fun.
Don’t tell anyone we hoped to date, okay?

After playing games like Team Fortress 2, Little Big Planet, and ultimately, Achievement Unlocked, I began to wonder:
What would life be like if it had achievements?
So, I’ve decided that whenever I manage to do something in my life that sounds like it’d be an achievement in a game of some sort or another, I’ll go ahead and post it up.
