Been a while since my last update. On the 20th, my fiancee got a bunch of my friends together, and we went to Speedring, over in the south bay area – an indoor go-kart track. This isn’t like Malibu, or what have you – these things are *fast*. I have no idea what the actual top speeds are, but I’d guess maybe 40MPHish? (Turns out the FAQ says that that’s about right) The track was about 30 seconds long, whatever that ends up as – you’re going substantially under 40 for most of the stretch. Maybe 1/4 mile? I dunno. But it was a *BLAST* a lot more tiring that I’d expected, and after a 15 minute warmup, and a 25 minute sprint, I was beat up. Bruise on my inner right knee from the fuel tank, sore spots on the back of my calves from the steering rods, and a sore lower back, right forearm, and left shoulder from fighting the g-forces.
Awesome fun, and pictures will be up eventually in the pictures section. Other’n that? I dunno – played some Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles the other day. Fun stuff, but I guess I expected a substantially more polished and refined interface, and am feeling let down in that regard. Still, gameplay was entertaining, and I’m expecting to have fun with the game.
The house is good – we put up curtains in the bedroom last night, which is nice, and got a new cheap hammock from IKEA, when the rope hammock I got from Amazon a couple years ago finally broke.
Mobius? How’s Mobius? He’s alright. We’re training him, he’s training us. He throws a fit every night when we put him in his crate to sleep, but ends up sleeping alright, I guess. He’s quite obedient when he feels some need to be – whether he thinks there’s a treat involved, or when there’s no other distractions around. Figuring out how to train him when there’s stuff he’d *rather* do is gonna be a bit tricky. But we’ve got ourselves enrolled in a class for early April, so hopefully, we’ll pick up some pointers.
Yeah. Got a 2.5 day work week this week. Fun fun!
