TGIF ... WTF?! [Jan. 11th, 2008|12:24 pm]
I came here to say that the workday sucks, and is unlikely to get better anytime soon. Seriously, if I don't survive the day ... avenge my death.

In the meantime (I'm waiting for a download), I'll post some details about this past weekend...

Last Sunday was the monthly Orange County Pinball meeting. We play six games against random opponents. Of the six games, I ranked first place on three, and second place on the other three. This coincidentally is the exact same distribution I scored last month. This month, for the three games that I ranked first, I also ranked top score of the evening ... a good month, indeed!!

(Not mine, but a sweet game!!)

Now, all that said, I am still ranked at 7th overall in the league. After playing the games we tallied up our scores and I found that I have now been moved up to ... 6th overall in the league ... and this was because the guy at #5 was out sick. I did miss a meeting last year for an MI event, so that knocked me down some, too.

Still, the guy who was in the #6 position moves to #5 because despite the night I had, he apparently had a better one and still managed to outscore me. Man, it's a tough climb at the upper end of things...

Overall, it was still a lot of fun, and I can't really be unhappy with my scores. We still have two months left in this "year", so we'll see if I manage to squeeze into the Top 5. :-)

Anyway, I hope your day is going better than mine ... and yes, someday I plan to do a 2007 retrospective ... just not today.

So I was reading about this pinball videogame coming out in the spring and I remembered how much you are involved with pinball, and I was wondering... would you be averse to being interviewed about pinball... things? I don't actually know anything about pinball or pinball-related activity but I'd like to learn and write about it, and I am pretty sure you know everything about pinball, so I thought I would ask. It would give us a chance to hang out, too. :)

Admittedly, birthday show *is* part of the stress ... but at least it has a very worthwhile payoff. :-)

For the moment, it appears that I have survived the Friday ... I was actually sorta working, even up until now. I was babysitting a lengthy upload that kept getting halfway done, then dying. Seems to have finished (finally), so now I can turn off my laptop till Monday. Whoo hoo!!
