I finished the rules for the new game today (a day after the deadline, but I think they're pretty clean, so I'm fine with a day's delay).

I forgot to mention earlier that last Friday I was talking to some of the people at work about how my beard doesn't grow very quickly, which was too bad because I wanted to see what a goatee would look like. I've shaved a goatee in the past after I'd gone more than a few days without shaving, but the hair is never thick enough and it looks a little week. One of the guys said it takes him three weeks to get a decent beard, so I may not have been giving it enough time. Anyway, I didn't shave for the entire week and then this morning shaved a goatee. It's still very short and not very full, but people seem to think it looks okay. I'm still not convinced, but I'll let it go for a while and see how I like it. It's very hard to adjust to such a big change to my face.

I asked a co-worker for the name of her doctor and called to make an appointment today, so I'll be having a check up in the couple of weeks. That's good. Now I can ask some work-out questions and get a physical.

Saturday night is the costume party I was invited to. I don't know what I'm going to do for it, but I have a pretty funny/disturbing idea for a costume. It sort of works out to be a "serial dater." I'll be spattered with blood and say my date decided to stay in the car. It was funny at work, but I'm not sure how it's going to go. The other idea I liked was the king of the faeries. Mostly because I saw some of those wings they make for little kids and thought how funny those would look on me. I think it'd be funny, but I also think it would involve a bit too much ridicule.

Anyway, Heather took me down to a costume place in Seattle tonight to check things out. It was very busy, but it had free parking and a lot of stuff. Cute staff, too. Then we went to dinner at DragonFish. It was very good and we had a good talk.

She said she enjoys arguing...or rather, debating. She said it's more fun to argue than do nothing. I say I don't feel that way at all. Why fight all the time? Why introduce that sort of...needless conflict and chaos into your life? My family certainly isn't like that. We're all pretty laid back and enjoy spending time with each other and despite the fact that we may pole fun sometimes, I can say we enjoy each other's presence whether we're "debating" or not. Anyway, it was just another weird preference some people have that I definitely don't share.

Oh, she also vehemently disagreed with my assessment of Pearl Jam and Nirvana. I maintain that Pearl Jam sounded very Nirvana-like after the success of Nevermind and years later, when Stone Temple Pilots became popular, Pearl Jam began to sound like them. Let me know if you agree or disagree.

Now I'm going to read and go to bed.
