    And LL, why aren't you playing Star Trek? That's one of the best games there is.

    It's brand new, apparently. I haven't been in since they moved it in. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Such ingratitude, after all the times I saved your life.

    As of a month or so ago, they have tournaments every Friday at Mom's. Appallingly, this has resulted in marital strife, as for some reason Friday is a particularly important night to be around. Which would make sense if we could go out, or even just sleep in the next day... but with a baby it's really no different from any other damn night, is it? Anyways I went last week and the competition was ferocious- the best player in our area was there, he ranks in the top 100 in the world, and there were several other top 500 players as well. I didn't play badly, but still finished tied for 6th out of 7. The highlight though was that I beat the top 100 guy twice... and once it was on Flash Gordon! As readers of this thread know, I am extremely passionate about Flash Gordon pinball. I have fantasized about having a great game on it in competition and then overhearing the following conversation:

    DUDE #1: Wow, who's that guy? He's going to be tough to beat!
    DUDE #2: Nah, don't worry about him. He's a one trick pony.

    Because being the master of Flash Gordon and Flash Gordon only is the grandest, purest thing I could aspire to. So you can imagine what it meant to me to defeat a top 100 player on it. Next, I must beat the high score of 3.1m, which was accomplished by a guy who was once ranked #8 in the world. It is my destiny.
