On the bright side, I had plenty of time to explore the internets for online fun. Two games were particularly enjoyable: "Pandemic" and "Pandemic: Extinction of Man." In the former and earlier of the two games, you play as a contagious disease, mutating yourself slowly in order to wipe out the human race, continent by continent. The latter is not so much a sequal as a remake. Same plot, different controls and means of propagation. Both are enjoyable and offer suprisingly different experiences.
Also something I discovered during my MASSIVELY long and boring day: Wired has some really excellent blogs.
Some breaking entertainment news regarding the girls on tonight's American Idol: Antonella Barba totally blows. The only positive thing Randy could say, "You are hot." But talent-wise, the trio of judges dropped the ball big-time letting this one get through.
One thing that keeps me coming back to the internet is nut-cases. The Wired blog Table of Malcontents discusses this crazy racist sci-fi philosopher-king. Just to give you a reason to check out the link, he wrote a book the title of which is "Lexicon Triumvirate." It stars a dragon. Some additional discussion is here.
And with that, my day, and yours, is slightly closer to being over.
