my left pointer finger is sporting at least five papercut-like cuts, due to an incident in the kitchen yesterday afternoon.
... then ushered in my birthday with Magic... NOT really my choice, but I did promise Kosh I'd reward him with a game or two if he got some solid studying done today. Surprise surprise, he actually earned playtime. at a few minutes past midnight. ugh. anyhooo... "played" 2 games using the new Shadowmoor premade decks (Turnaround and something about Entropy) ... and the quotation marks are there because I was manna screwed each time, the first time I had plenty of mountains and not a swamp, so cast a few spells but had nothing to block Kosh's creatures. The second time? 2 swamps. Only. Couldn't cast nothing, so again, nothing to block, so I was dead in record time. This game has always been frustrating to me, I will quickly sink into a grand funk when the deck screws me over, , , and these two games were over in like 5 rounds each time ... [insert expletives here] ... at least it seems Kosh has finally learned this lesson and didn't insist on going for more games to "warm the deck up" :p
Oh, and I further aggravated the cut-up finger shuffling the deck.
... and now for something completely different ... which of the following manga avatars do you think is more "me"?
thanks to RunJenRun for this cool tool!)
why two? well, one I did myself, another with Kosh's input. Not too much difference, but enough that I figured I'd put both up for votage :) Your input please! :)
now I'm off to bed (it's 1:30 am!) ... if the weather holds out tomorrow we are going to do touristy things in the city, seeing as I've not done those things in the 2+ years we've been here, and Kosh actually wants to mark the day for some reason, crazy dude, he must like me or something, teeheheee!
