Well, did my good deed for the day. In our apartment area, there are a couple little girls, 8 and 10, that Erik has become friends with. They think we're pretty cool, because we have rats and cool toys and posters, so it's groovy.
Today, Erik was in from playing, eating lunch, when the older girl comes to the door, asking for help; apparently, the younger one climbed up in a tree and got stuck. So, yes, I got out there and shagged up in that tree, 20 feet up, to get her down. Lemme tell ya, I'm impressed, as I wouldn't have thought my fat ass would have managed it, much less stayed there and managed to get someone else down out of it, without both of us busting our butts, but there ya go.
And now, lunch.
I've discovered that playing "Freelancer" for too long has an adverse effect on my system. Three straight hours of full 360 degree high-speed space combat in a massively tricked out heavy combat fighter is gorgeous, but it's now got my blood racing, my hands twitching, and my mind refuses to focus. All I can think is "Yes, my friend, 7, count 'em, 7 Reaper Mark 2 cannons DO have a way of eating away at one's hull armour, don't they? I've comrades in heaven and enemies in hell...say hello for me."

The bartender replies "Are you positive?"
