One of the big highlights to the last two weeks was that my birthday dinner was quite a success. Espeto Steakhouse is absolutely delicious! ^_^ Everyone that was there had a great time, even though a lot of it was at Jason's expense, lol. That place might become my special occasion restaurant. The other highlight was something I totally didn't expect. I went to the LAN party last weekend, but I ended up playing Settlers of Catan for nearly the entire time. It's been a couple years since I got this many games in, and there's about 10-12 people at UNF who know how to play now. I've got every single expansion (Seafarers, Cities & Knights, Traders & Barbarians) and their respective 5-6 player extension packs. Now if only I could get my DDR friends to start playing it...I could probably pull it off now that I can explain the game better.

I decided I'm gonna take a couple of weeks off of table tennis. I'm gonna focus more on my legs and weight after tomorrow (huge potluck at work...kinda hard to not eat ^_^; ). I'm planning on walking across the Main Street Bridge with my ankle weights on. I'm at 6 pounds on both ankles, and hope to get to the full 10 sometime in early July. Running definitely is out of the question with the weights on...my hamstrings got pretty sore last time I did that.

I can now pass Quasar and Sync in Normal (Light7 for the old schoolers) on Beatmania IIDX on a regular basis. Can't quite pass everything at the 5 level though.

That's it for now.

Can you run without the weights?

Yeah, but not for more than 3 minutes at one time. Knees used to cause the problem, though it isn't so much now. I figure I'll start running when I can do 10 pound power walk comfortably.

It got even better with Traders & Barbarians expansion, which I didn't know existed until I bought it at Megacon. Cities & Knights feels faster with the Fishermen of Catan scenario added to it.
