CONvergence 2005 Preacher- Diffuse Glow

Catching Up Again

We finally got our taxes done with a little over a week to spare. I don't remember the last time I waited this long to do them, but I kept putting it off because of figuring out the whole splitting the mortgage deduction issue. It turned out to be pretty simple.

I also finished paying off my car last week. It's nice to be done with car payments again.

Work has continued to be rather stressful. While it should improve somewhat soon, I think I said that a week or two ago.

I finished God of War 2 and Super Mario Galaxy recently. God of War 2 was very good, but it definitely felt like an incomplete middle bit of a trilogy. A big final boss battle but then the story continues leading to a bigger battle that doesn't actually happen. When I say I "finished" Super Mario Galaxy I actually just mean that I defeated the "Fate of the Universe" level and defeated Bowser, as I understand it there's still quite a bit more game to be had. I think I have around 93 stars. I actually had to check gamefaqs at the beginning of the final battle as I couldn't figure out how to start.

monstersocks has a cold so we spent most of the weekend at home and sadly missed billmurray8's party. We did watch Dragonlance but I think the party would have been more fun. (My favorite part of the movie was imagining the people doing the voice work finishing a session and being very ashamed of what they had just done.)
Roast Beef- Dobler Style

More dull than usual

After almost two weeks Microsoft finally updated their RDC app so that it no longer warns that the beta is expiring at the end of last month. Apparently they were spurred to release the intermediate revision when they discovered that people actually used one of the major features of the app and might be disappointed if they dropped it so they could release the next update sooner.

Also, people love to mail things. I never really understood how much people love to mail things until we bought our house. I can be in the room closest to the mailbox at pretty much any hour, and it's a good bet that someone will be mailing something.
