I sincerely hope that when my lease is up next November, I vividly recall the events of the last few days and weight them heavily in any future moving decisions. I had to dig deep into my youth and recall the simple machines that we learned in 9th grade Physical Science, because without the goddamn wedge, I wouldn't have a couch.
Moving isn't so bad, so long as you are properly prepared. About 8 hours into the first day of the move, I realized that we were about as ill-prepared as you can get. The only way we could have been less prepared is if we would've decided to leave the state and expect our belongings to be in our new apartment upon our return. It took around 65 trips back and forth across the street, but everything is finally in the new place.
That is, of course, not to say that anything is IN place.
Haven't gotten to actually hook up my Xbox in the living room yet, but that choice is more a means of control than anything else. It'd be like setting a bottle of Captain Morgan's in front of a recovering alcoholic. I'd be quite likely to just give up and say "well, we now have corrugated end-tables" while playing Borderlands.
Regarding Borderlands, I must say that I have discovered newfound love for that game. My initial playthrough took me about 14 hours into the game. I hadn't even fought the first major enemy, Sledge, yet. I was level 17 and must have died somewhere upwards of 50 times. I became frustrated and abandoned the game back to the shelves of Blockbuster from whence it came. This time, I've picked (at Ryan's suggestion) a different class, the Berserker.
Yeah. MUCH better. It's quite satisfying that when things get too hard with all the bullets flying at your face, your response can actually be to punch holes in everything around you. At the same spot in the game I was previously, I had only died 3 times, and those legitimately felt like I may have outmatched myself.
Fantasy football is a-happening this year. No one is really running away with our league, although Ryan's recent theft of MY first place position will NOT go unnoticed or unpunished. Mark my words.
That pretty much covers it. I might post some new items sometime in the future. I hope that was vague enough of a precursor to what might or might not be my next update.
