My weekend consisted of watching a lot of anime (reviews to come later), several movies, some Fable, and meeting with some colleagues for a game of Poker. This time we met at Derek’s house. He has this really pretty house in Issaquah. I wouldn’t say it was in the middle of no where, but it was very close. Google Maps showed a driving time of 18mins. It took me half an hour to get there due to traffic and other unforseen circumstances. I couldn’t believe traffic was so bad on a Saturday. Even though I was late, I was the 1st one there. Derek had 2 game consoles, an Xbox and a … NES!!?!?! I wish I still had my NES system. I think my dad gave it to my cousins. That game console rocked.
So a couple new people are joining our weekly or biweekly games. I didn’t do well this time. Lost $20 on Saturday, but I’m still up $50 overall. I’ve capped myself to lose only that much per time we play, which made me the designated automatic shuffler 2000. hehe. I think my thumbs got really tired after the game.
Oh yah! I also got my haircut on Saturday. It’s been like 2 months since my haircut and it was growing out like a wild forest. Haircuts here are expensive. You can get a haircut at SuperCuts/Great Clips for $14, but they don’t tend to turn out that well. I’ve gotten 2 recommendations, so I gave The Barber Shop a try and it turned out pretty well, however it cost $19. OUCH. That’s comparing to my $6 hair cuts back in Monterey Park, or $FREE when ohfuee helped me cut it.
I also did some cleaning. Was planning to do some more like tidy up the room, but all I ended up doing was taking the trash out, doing laundry and washing the dishes. Haha. Laziness just crept it.
Brewster Jennings Protects America: The Google Map Hunt Game (from /.) – Remember playing “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego” as a kid? Well now the new game Brewster Jennings Protects America brings this classic adventure into the 21st century by merging the game play with Google maps technology*. In the web-based Brewster Jennings Protects America game you race around the globe as a government agent trying to stop a deadly terror attack from taking place…. I gave it a short try and the UI was pretty hard to control and unlike Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego where they give you 3 places to choose from, you have the entire world to choose from. Several other Google Maps games include: Google Earth Hacks, GoogleEarthing , Earth Contest.
