thank you for all you have left undone.

if you haven't guessed it. yes, i am referring to tetris. the above picture, created two years ago for the release of tetris evolution, shows colored crates depicting a typical tetris set-up.

as the game is turning 25 today -older than i- i thought i would show it a little love. one of those ridiculous things that i must admit from time to time is that tetris has captivated me for so many hours of life. it was my regular nintendo gameboy game of choice. easy, logical, fun. plus, the fast levels get so fast! once i got to college and found lots of down time, i rediscovered my love for tetris and would play various online versions for a quick fix away from studying and social-izing.

satisfying? quite.

now that my beloved friend and fellow procrastinator is turning 25, i can only hope to rekindle our friendship via my new and improved nintendo ds. behold!

on to more hours of waste and brain strain? perhaps. perhaps indeed.

purgatorio to paradiso.

it is currently 27.2 degrees celsius. down from a balmy 34.4 earlier today.

for those of us/you in my part of the world (being one of the only that doesn't employ celsius that's 81 and 94 respectively...). do excuse me, i'm just trying to become accustomed and teach myself to use the system.

ah yes. the arrival in south carolina has been, done, and happened. after a daunting/challenging/tiresome 18 hour drive from cambridge, massachusetts to columbia, south carolina. unpacking vehicles has been completed and bruises counted.

here for a mere 30 (or is almost 29!?) jours with un/packing and cleaning and mending and recharging and party planning and catching up to do -i hope those 30 go flying.

vacations are a lovely thing. though i won't be working for those 30, there will be much to do and see before the end of it all. therefore, purgatorio. and then... perhaps paradiso will come along as well.

any reading suggestions?

***disclaimer*** no more fun and frolicsome techno adventures for atleast a month. bear with me.
