Running into an old friend

I was downtown yesterday, waiting for a fellow to show up so I could see the Yamaha FZ6 he had for sale. We agreed to meet at Betsy’s coffee shop on Cary street because it was close to where the seller lived and also near my motorcycle safety class, which started at 6:30. When I […]

Post in Lumines forum confirms I will always be this game’s bitch.

I mentioned Lady Jaye’s triumph over Lumines, a game we like to play on our Sony PSPs. Lady Jaye was the first person in our peer group to best Level 100 and unlock all the level-based skins in Challenge Mode. There are, however, other milestones to overcome. I am trying to beat all of the […]

Apparently I have lost the will to read.

At least, the will to finish a book. I missed getting on the couch and reading a good mindless novel. When I moved from NoVA to Maryland, I bequeathed my 400+ library to my friend, The Accountant. I’ve been diligent in my desire to avoid building another stash of books. As such, I miss out […]

Gamefly Review – Like Netflix, Only Slower … and for Games

So one of the big reservations I had about buying a PSP is the purported lack of decent games. PSP games range from $29.99 to $39.99, and with the prices so close to console games I was definitely apprehensive about just picking up a few to try. PSP game reviews center around the mainstream games […]

Your mind tricks will not work on me, boy

So, after my less than stellar performance yesterday, I read the VA Motorcycle safety guide last night before bed and took the online test a few more times this morning. I went back, waited about an hour to take my test, and passed it with only one incorrect answer. Take that, punks! They took my […]
