Thursday notes

– One thing that I can tell you for certain is that you should not stand near an open flame if you’re wearing the same sling I was after my shoulder surgery.

The thing burnt into an unrecognizable black lump on my driveway within about 45 seconds.  It was amazing how quickly it went up.

Still, it was a very cathartic experience.

Now I’m just left with the fact that my shoulder strengthening exercises make my arm hurt pretty much all day long.  I guess that’s to be expected after not using my arm for the better part of 6 weeks.

This week I was informed that I could start jogging again, which will be nice as I still want to pull off at least one triathlon this year… but my limitations on swimming might make that nearly impossible.  I’ll know more when I meet up with my doctor in 2 weeks.

– I’m ashamed that I didn’t take a chance to play the NCAA Football 12 demo last night, but I have a good explanation.  I spent the better part of, oh… I don’t know… 5 minutes trying to figure out how the Brewers can play so badly on the road.  After that, I really lost my interest in playing any sports games last night.  I’m sure you understand.

– What I did start playing last night was the beta for Journey on the PS3.  I continue to be amazed at the work that Jenova Chen accomplishes with a downloadable title.   The closest comparison that I can make for the title is Ico in a desert.

It has an amazingly cool feel, but what I have a hard time understanding even after playing through the beta, is how your interactions with others really impact the game.  I’ll give it another go to see if I can figure that side of it out.

– Steam has started their annual Summer sale today.  I haven’t had a chance to check for what deals are best yet, but feel free to post your suggestions.

    Nothing about the Yanks sweeping the Brewers? :p

    Of course, the Brewers have been awful on the road against everyone.
