  1. I'm putting this in the health section, rather than games. I've recently played a good amount of an arcade game called Initial D, a mountain racing game full of hairpin turns and general crazy driving. In the process of doing so, I've screwed up my right shoulder. It hurts in various positions, but not during casual use.

    A funny thing happened last saturday... I was driving on the interstate, which happened to be bone dry... and I took an exit to go pick up a classmate I was carpooling with. The exit ramp was wet as hell. As soon as I hit my brakes, I was hydroplaning, 45 degrees right of where I should have been, at probably close to 70mph. My Initial D© skills kicked in, and I instinctively countersteered, and I did it with only about 6 inches too much correction, on the first time I've drifted a FF drivetrain car, first time I've drifted in real life, first time it wasn't planned. :D

    Video games saved my life!

  1. Melissa: I've been giving her shots of folstim (?) nightly. And I found out something really interesting about my wife. She's *afraid* of needles. She's a nurse, she gives shots every day, but she's like a little kid when it comes to getting stuck with these *TINY* little needles... pushpins are *way* bigger.

    Me: Lots of Biscuits and gravy leftovers. Had some for supper last night and breakfast this morning... and I'm skipping lunch today.

  1. Well... thought I'd start documenting my health related stuff.

    I slept well last night, but wasn't ready to wake up this morning. I'd say it took an hour to wake up fully.

    Lunch was biscuits and gravy... pretty good. Didn't eat but two biscuits... seemed little to me, but I was full.
