Liz was out with the kids tonight- Yeeeha! What did I do? Went for a walk. Read a bit. Worked out. Mowed. Yard work. And, of course, indulged my chess addiction.
I am going to have to watch myself. When I start playing this game, I have been known to exhibit antisocial behavior. I swore it off cold turkey a couple years back, and I am just now allowing myself to ease back into it. One thing I had forgotten was how intense certain members of the online chess community get. There is some seriously hilarious trash talk going on in the chat area of the chess site I play at: Yeah that right sucka, JUST WALK AWAY! You too chicken to play me! You only play blues!
(Blue is the lowest ranking level possible.)(I am blue.)
Come on guys- your are chess geeks!! I myself had a funny encounter with a guy today who got rather upset when I beat him silly. I enjoy that. Not the winning, the whining. Only the chess people that get this crazy. When I quit chess, I subbed in spades for a good while to ease the withdrawl pains- the spades people are very easy going usually compared to the chess people.
OK time to cut the umbilical. Time to wake up Neo.
