Ah, smash brothers. Last night I beat the 100-man melee after around an hour of frustration (at 4-5 minutes an attempt). I used Meta Knight for his combination of puffiness (to avoid cheap deaths) and a sword. My failures were almost all the same way - once I was down to the last 20 or so, they would always come 5 at a time and be very aggressive, and by that point I'd have a lot of damage and so when I got hit I'd fly off the platform. And then I'd try to get back on and it would be almost impossible with five targets to avoid. For my winning attempt I was much more aggressive about stopping them from grouping up, and it worked! Next up: 15 minute melee! (ugh)

I realized yesterday I was trying to convince myself independently that a) it wasn't that far from our apartment to the house (so people coming to game nights won't be horribly inconvenienced) b) it was a long way from work to the house (so that we're moving closer to work). Since work is between apartment and house, these are incompatible!

Bush vetoes bill banning waterboarding - I know it's been a little hard to follow, and I've kinda stopped paying attention, but the official policy of the US and our president is to allow torture. This is very sad.

Hmmm... time to re-play and pass 100-man melee, but no time to come to game night. :-P
We did a puzzle all night. And people stayed late (past my bedtime, I bailed at 10:30). Pretty quiet, but people seemed to enjoy themselves.

Comment from gregstoll:

Hey, that was after doing a bunch of other crap! :-P

Ooh, a puzzle sounds like fun.

Comment from onefishclappin:

Yeah yeah yeah. Well, you'll have to come over and work on it some evening when you need a break from packing/unpacking.

Comment from djedi:

Yeah, we were doing stuff in the middle too, like laundry that needed attention fairly often. We still have a lot to do tonight like "packing" for the next week or so.

Ooo, we'll definitely have to come over and work on it!

Comment from onefishclappin:

I figured, I just had to harass. I'll see you tomorrow night - looking forward to getting to work on someone else's housework!

I just beat the 100-man this morning. Mario all the way baby, just spam the C-stick and make sure to grab the light saber.
