Finally saw the Trading Spaces episode (well the last ten minutes of it) where Hilde puts hay on the walls. Jesus H. What is wrong with that woman?

And, played Starcraft last night for the first time in, oh, years. Basically on a whim, as Magistrate mentioned he played on recently. I had fun, but man, I didn't have much of a touch to begin with, and I've lost it all now. Yeesh. I am teh suck.

* Grammar news: the blight on language of text messaging.
* An impressive story of luck.
