How’s it going? What are you going to be doing this summer? How is WoW going for you now, and how did it go your first time around?
This blog reflects my web-browser based internet activity. I link to about 30% of the articles I read/watch. A couple sites (The Real News, much of Comedy Central) can’t be directly linked to with respect to specific segments.
I’m playing a few games. I’m in an online baseball league for the game Out of the Park Baseball 2007. I also play Renaissance Kingdoms and I play the highly rated flash games on Newgrounds. I also sometimes play oldschool and freeware RPGs. I’ve heard that my local library has new and/or newish PC games for checkout so I’m looking into that in another 10 or so days.
I really like the Newgrounds games not so much for the enjoyment but because they allow me to see developments in gameplay over time – since the games reflect the mainstream games. There’s some pretty cool new gameplay out there, but it’s all very casual and very much non-epic. The Fancy Pants gameplay has brought new life to the platformer genre.
I’m running a semi-vegan diet, if there is such a thing as that. It’s vegan except for two things – I eat at restaurants once every two weeks which almost always includes meat and I drink one quart of chocolate milk once a week. If you ever want to go vegan I can set you up with a diet plan and various substitutions to account for your specific tastes. The diet is not only vegan (and therefore minimal in saturated fat and cholesterol free), it’s also low in sodium (it can be quite low depending on your budget) and high in protein.
I thought that not eating meat would be very difficult, but when I eat meat at restaurants I don’t enjoy it nearly as much as I used to, so going nearly meat-free (like meat every few months) shouldn’t be a problem.
Are you staying in touch with your San Diego friends effectively? Mike and Glenn must miss having you around.
