Yes, it's already that time of year again. Today is the three-year anniversary of my former co-worker Tim's passing. Once more, a few of us met by Tim's memorial plaque this morning to reminisce about him and place flowers on the nearby stones. With the unusually cool April, the purple flowers planted around the stones are only now just blooming. Still thinking of you, Tim.

I'm graduating from college tomorrow. I'm getting married in two weeks, and then to England and the unknown. It's a little nerve wracking, but I'm excited to move into the new stages of my life.

Trunkyo-it's very nice that you still remember and honor Tim. <3

So I finally got around to playing Mata Hari. That constant train travelling is driving me nuts. And I know I could just ride the express trains but I've developped some sort of personal vendetta against those enemy agents.

Also, who's idea was it to also drag the conversation topics onto people? What happened to the good old just clicking them?

I like the game though. It's interesting, not really difficult, good material for me right now. Having some trouble with convincing Mercedes, though. Mata says I need something extra but I have no idea what or where to look for it. Guess I'll have to ride some more trains then ...

After this one I'll probably play So Blonde. Got lots of games lined up, including the Broken Swords series. But I'm actually looking for something of the same caliber as Gray Matter. I was so in love with that one ... It's the last game I actually bought in a real store, and there's just something about a hardcopy version of a game ... (the last game before that I bought in a store was Runaway, to give you an idea how rarely good games show up on those shelves).

Six of TimovieFiancée's friends have kidnapped her, dressed her up in a hula-skirt and a T-shirt with lots of pieces of candy on, and set off into town for her bachelorette party.

TimovieMan's friends however, have decided that the best they could do was leave him alone while his fiancée was out, so he could do some uninterrupted adventure gaming.

Everybody wins!

As long as that T-shirt TimovieFiancée is now wearing doesn't result in her bringing home James Woods...

You should be OK. Didn't Diane kill James Woods (and a bunch of other people)?

I was just about to go to bed but Mr J is cheering loudly from the basement. I think Sweden just scored.
(It's icehockey world championship and Sweden is playing against the Czechs.)

Hand me one of those Manhattans but skip the cherry.

I don't drink alcohol. I don't like ice hockey (in fact, quite the opposite). I have dark hair and eyes.

Am I really a Finnish man?

Sick to my stomach with anxiety about the overdue rent. I'm trying to sell some art in the hopes of paying it off before the cut-off date.

My heart is very heavy. I'm behind on my sewing I'm working lots of hours and my cat that I've had for 13 years is dying. He went from 10 pounds 4 weeks ago to 7.4 pounds today. The vet said that she suspects cancer or is heart murmor has caught up to him. His breathing is labored and he cant support his own weight. Its going to be along night, and I'm sick to my stomach of how this will go.
