happy memorial day! susan might understand why i choose to relive my manitou springs penny arcade memories by going to our local wunderland, even if it is all indoors and doesn't have space harrier. alex & his family got there even before sven & i did. we played skeeball (where i was rewarded with enough tickets to trade for a small bottle of invisible ink), pinball, prop cycle, donkey kong, tempest, and a terrifically kinetic game called panic park that was entirely in japanese. michaelmas even stopped by to play a couple of games of air hockey before we all went to xmen 3, which was a wildly adequate beginning to the summer movie season. and it's a good excuse to watch the inimitable ian mckellen. AND i had the best movie popcorn ever. afterwards, we went to dinner at chez jose and when i got home, i discovered packetwarp dan posted his grandfather's wwii pix. so i had FUN, damnit, the first fun of the season. back to work on x360 tomorrow.
