today was another game day. participating members were elias, dan, and myself. brian, who is usually there, wasn't there today, and i didn't ask too many questions because he's usually a disrupting influence on game day because he wins more often than not. we started the festivities by playing some nintendo 64, mario party 3
i believe was the name of the game. that was followed by web of powers
, and then a game of settlers
. after that painting buying game (the name escapes me at the moment), we went back to mario party
, during which we took a break midgame to get some pizza.
i didn't win a single game. i came in last or close to last for all of them. i'm beginning to think my role at game day is to be some kind of gaming fodder. i basically went in today with the attitude that i would probably lose everything, and if i did win, it'd be a pleasant surprise. i don't think i'm very competitive, at least not at game day. my primary reason for going is to have fun, although nursing a losing streak seems to be the opposite of fun. i'm the kind of person who would lose on purpose just to make the other person feel better (although I wasn't throwing any of my games today). competition can sometimes bring out the worst in people. where are those games where everybody comes out a winner?
afterwards, i motorcycled home. it was kind of interesting, because it was my first time biking in the rain. as soon as i started going, it began to drizzle. it was one of those weird sunny showers, so i wasn't too concerned, i figured it'd soon pass (and it did). but for a few minutes, i was riding in a small rain shower. it wasn't too bad, i made sure i was extra careful and when i came to a stop that i brake slowly. i did notice the roads were slippery underneath my shoes, but there was no traction problems with the bike.
