Son of a submariner.

Jacob recently got his hands on the holy grail of our mutual geekiness, a massive collection of old PC DOS games. There are seven episodes of various Commander Keens, four or five Duke Nukems, two Jills of the Jungle, three Crystal Caveses, the whole ball of big-headed disproportionately-jumping wax. There's also Lemmings and Carmen Sandiego and a bunch of Sims which I really haven't got time for because I'm too busy trying to catch the edge of that platform without falling into that fiery thing that's there for no good reason.

Our lives this week have been revolving around three things: PC games, the Tick, and food. This is the existence of which I've dreamed since at least junior high (minus the Tick, but only because I didn't watch cartoons as a kid). I should probably pause to reflect on the realization of all my dreams, but that would take time away from my gaming. Time is a valuable commodity, or at least it is when you're being chased by alligators.

Yeah! I complained to Gene and he fixed my page. I don't think he fixed anyone else's yet, though. I saw your last entry, finally, but couldn't actually comment on it.

yeah, and i removed commenting from the picture site because i sent the link to the people in my class and i didn't want you callous bores commenting on it and alerting them to my disreputable nature.

gene is my hero for at least fixing your site and making it possible to view my latest entry and also yours.

Are we callous bores, or callous boors? I just want to know if I'm tedious or rude, or possibly both.

Oh, okay. I'll attempt to be more offensive, but not in an interesting way.

Max! Holy crap! How did you get here?
