I had a good weekend! It was mostly relaxing, which is good because the month of May is going to be crazy, what with the weddings and such. Friday night we had dinner with onefishclappin and krikwennavd before heading up to couples game night. It was fun, but we ended up only playing one game. Lots of chatting, which was nice. And talking about summer musical stuff reminded me that I need to learn my music for my audition next weekend!

Saturday was relaxing - we spent some time taking care of things around the apartment in the afternoon. Well, and then David played Dragon Warrior and I spent two hours putting album art for all of my music on my iPod. Which sounds a little crazy, but now it's done and I'll never have to do it again (which reminds me - need to backup the iTunes databases!) After running some errands, we headed over to destroyerj's and grilled steaks (well, he grilled steaks :-) ). After dinner, we played (and eventually passed) Lego Star Wars, which is a surprisingly fun and cute game - you're Lego characters in a Lego Star Wars world! It's something you have to experience to understand, I bet. Also, playing the little Lego Yoda is fun - when he's normally walking he walks slowly with a cane, but when he brings out his light saber he jumps around and does flips and all that just by walking!

Sunday was a relaxing day - went to church, more taking care of stuff (almost ready to submit my TiVo HME challenge entry) and played some Metroid 2, and got the Screw Attack just before bed, which was very exciting! We were giddy :-)

Hmm, I guess that's it for my weekend. If you like Set, you'll like the Set Daily Puzzle - I did today's in a minute and 20 seconds!


Comment from djedi:

"Controlling" Yoda gives me a headache and having a partner (who can hurt you) swinging wildly isn't a picnic either. The game is pretty darn cool though. :) Everyone should try/see it. "The Force" plays a big role.

Comment from gregstoll:

Yeah, assembling Lego bricks with "The Force" is a lot of fun :-)

Comment from destroyerj:

It's not as much actually "wild" swinging as it looks like (but it really really looks like it heh). I did a little Yoda studying on my own in the safety of the diner to figure him out.

I also later discovered you can walk outside through those doors that the random passers-by go through (I could've sworn I tried and wasn't able to before)! You get to see all the mini-kits you've put together (fully or partially) and also the super-kit (which I've not completed, w00t). And, if the 'light' and 'dark' computer walking-around peoples happen across each other, they fight! Fun stuff.

Comment from djedi:

Neat, why didn't we try that saturday? So much to finish in the game. :) I love games with unlockables.

Comment from onefishclappin:

Grr... I can't play the set game with my version on Mozilla. Grr. I like set. BTW, any word on game night for this week?

Comment from gregstoll:

That's odd - my Firefox 1.0.2 handles it fine.

Haven't heard anything yet!

Comment from onefishclappin:

I'm using Mozilla 1.0.1
Unfortunatly, it's the most recent we have on at work. Need to try our version of Opera...

Comment from egray:

i love set! thanks so much for the heads up on the daily set game!

except for the fact that i have my last exam in 2.5 hours, i would be deeply into it. stupid exams.
why did i think grad school was a good idea anyhow?
at least the snow is starting to melt.

good luck with your tivo thing - that sounds pretty crazy!

Comment from gregstoll:

Yeah - my sister passed it along to me, so I thought I'd share the wealth. :-)

Sorry about all the grad school stuff. Are these your last set of exams?

Thanks! I like having programming projects to keep me busy...
