I turned into a lobster tonight. I forgot to put on sunscreen when I went to the beach swimming. I would have been ok except I stopped to read a book on backgammon I picked up at the library. The sun felt good though. I hope it turns into a tan, not cancer. For now, besides the obvious pain -- it actually feels someone nice to be in touch with my body.
I'm pushing 1625 on my yahoo ranking. I'm playing with a slight variation to my normal style based on the book. I think being more patient is going to help my game. I still don't have the patience to calculate the odds for moves though. It may be a personal weakness developed by playing rapid games against the computer. I don't want to slow down -- just click click click.
Note to self: you need an ATM card to use the ATM machine at the bank.
