Today was a good day. Irene and I met my Mom and sister Judy at the Casino for a bit- that’s always fun. We don’t really gamble much- it’s basically more of a chance to sit down and have a coffee with just the four of us. I put $5 in a slot machine, and came home empty handed: perfectly normal 🙂
Later in the day I hooked up with my nephew Shane and friend Jim to kill each other in Battlefield 2. For folks who haven’t played this game, it is in essence a squad based first person shooter set in “modern” battlefields. You have Americans, Chinese, and UAE (Arab) military. Shane killed me many, many times. I just got the game a few days ago, so that’s my excuse. Towards the end Jim and I were on the same side (it was really painful when Jim and Shane ganged up on me), and I think we actually had a couple of victories against Shane.
Gambling and shooting friends: what could be better?
