My desk is almost done

The wait for my desk is almost over. I was in Milwaukee again over the weekend working on staining the top. All that’s left is sealing it and bringing it to Madison. In the meantime, everything else was completed, so I brought those parts home. Click here to see some of the pictures (the write-up will come later this year, really!).

Children are getting smarter. My oldest niece, Isabel, learned how to beat me a couple of times at Dead or Alive 3 on the Xbox. Speaking of children and video games, I realized that I have a list of games that are not very kid-friendly. So, I’m going to add the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings to all of the games I have listed as well as those that are not released yet (those are usually marked as RP for rating pending). I’ll get to this later this week. In the meantime, I purchased The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind – Game of the Year Edition. I think I’m taking this gaming thing too seriously!

For you Anime fans, I recently discovered and really enjoyed watching Last Exile on TechTV last week (the second link opens TechTV’s “Last Exile” article). I don’t know much about Anime, but I think I’m hooked on this great series. It’s about a couple of young pilots that suddenly find themselves saving the world… okay, it’s more than that, which is why I’m so intrigued by it. Check it out!
