Damn You Past Keith!

And damn you Fry's too. They put Civilization IV on sale this weekend, and so I had no choice but to pick it up And I've been playing way too much. I had completely forgotten how addicting the game is.

And Past Keith had an idea about how to save his relationship from Civ's impending forces. He installed the game on the computer upstairs which forces Present Keith to stand up to play. As it turns out, standing erect for hours on end, barefoot, and on hardwood floors, starts to hurt. My poor heels.

On the other hand I've taken care of Julias Ceasar, and have almost erradicated Catherine the Great.

Trivia Night at The Chieftan

The Chieftan is a great neighborhood pub a block from my house, and they have trivia nights on Tuesdays. Jayne and I have been meaning to go for a while to have some fun a kick some ass, so we invited the Basteels along to help us out. It's been a while since I've participated in anything that really resembles a competition, and it was good to stretch the ego and fear a bit.

That being said, with Jayne's entertainment and sports knowledge to fill in the CIT gaps, we kicked a little ass and beat the architects.

Bribing the judge with cheesecake probably helped too.

The 280 Really Moves

Jayne was nice enough to care for Ishy today, so I got to take Thunderbolt in to work. And since it's such a lovely day, I thought I'ld take 280 down to Palo Alto (Man is it great to live in California). Whoa boy though. I was doing 90, and passed a cop at a speed trap who didn't pull me over because I was barely keeping up with traffic. That was fun.
