More tales of my lameness.
In my attempt to learn the Japanese alphabet (hiragana), I decided to manufacture some flash cards. I have no index cards, so what could I do? Aha, useless checks from the now-defunct Cambridgeport Bank. How excellent. I can practice in the comfort of home, because there's no way I'm taking my check-flash cards in public.
I played chess with my roommate today. I made one major mistake and we ended up playing for several hours, the end consisting of me attempting to checkmate him and repeatedly failing to do so. How do you not mate someone who only has one out-of-the-way pawn and a rook left on the board? Sigh. This is probably why I never took to chess. I got all hungry from thinking too hard.
You thought this would be about some Japanese board game like checkers, didn't you? Ha, I'm so bad at coming up with titles.
