Three things that happened today.

I dueled for the first time ever on b.net. Some level 30 amazon was clearing quests with my level 25 druid and wanted to "try out her new skill" on me. I think I would have won but I don't like killing PCs so I went back to town. Besides, the lightning javelin skill is stupid. And I have 2814578345 life. The other player had no chance!

Driving down the beltway at dusk, I saw an ambulance with its lights and sirens on, and as it passed I saw that there was a light on inside, which to me meant they were working on somone. I got a giant lump in my throat and nearly began to cry, and flashed back to my grandfather collapsing during thanksgiving dinner. (He was diabetic, and had had a glass of wine. It turned out OK that night, but he passed away years later while I was in college.) That was the first time I'd ever had someone near me carried away in an ambulance. Everything is personal to me, sometimes.

I went to CUE in fairfax. Goth/industrial billiards night. It was neat, I think I'd go again someday if I have energy. As I was heading towards my car, a group of young guys in hoodies yelled across the parking lot, "HEY! Are there any girls in there?" I was like, uh... yeah? I feel I may have done a disservice to any girls that were in there.

I have an awesome duelling story to tell you sometime, though it's too long and boring to type out. Suffice it to say, it was my first time on BNet, and the reason I have a character who carries around one of his own ears to this very day.

You should type it out anyway!! I want to hear it.

I can summarize all of mine.

I joined a duel game, there were 6 barbs and me, and I was playing my (necromancer or barbarian). The duel started, I (launched a bone spirit and started running around or did a whirlwhind) and then the barbarian ran up to me and killed me in one shot so fast that his attack had no animation.

Were you there??? Did you get there after I left?! This makes me really sad, I thought about calling you when I got there but then realized that I didn't have your number.
