Dammit. You know the ingrown toenail I had a few weeks back? It’s returned with a vengeance. I’m having trouble walking and putting on my socks, that’s how bad it is. I’m limping everywhere I go with a little wince at each step.
I’m gonna be soaking it in salt for a few days, then getting it cauterized (OWW!) this Friday. I hate hate HATE novicane based minor surgical procedures… I’ll likely yell my head off, but it has to be done and it beats living like this. The recovery will likely suck, given that last time I just had the nail clipped and THAT alone was lousy. My weekend is going to suck. My WEEK is going to suck. Grr.
What else, what else… well, on a positive note, WWF Raw kicked ass last night. An excellent followup on Wrestlemania, taking the show places I’m thrilled it’s going. It was also an interesting social experiment to see how the crowd booed the Rock relentlessly until he licked Hogan’s ass and begged for some cheers. Yikes.
Got to watch two more episodes of Trigun yesterday… finally found out Vash’s bizarre origins. The episode was a bit of a ‘Huh?’ one, since it took place completely outside the usual context of the series. I’m hoping I do a better job of integrating various mysterious-origin tales into UE.
No new UE. Was busy all weekend and last night. MAYBE some tonight but I might just take it easy this week… nothing too strenuous. Ow. Ow.
Now, since I have the horde’s attention (at least, it does my ego good to think of my small cluster ‘o fans as a horde)… I’m trying to augment my MAME box with more wai gaming fun. Unfortunately all I can think of is MAME and various console emulators, and DDR/DWI. Are there any other great PC games available online (or on the cheap) that you recommend for play with an arcade joystick? Controls must be remappable to keys like Alt and arrows and letters.
