And So Begins the Audit

Well, the audit is underway. I've got all my reconciliations done, too. So I guess things are going well. I hope so anyway.

We lost our ultimate Frisbee game Thursday night. Really badly, too. It was something like 15-6. I can't believe we won those first two games and have fallen apart so much since.

Friday night, I bought a Wii. Spent quite a bit of time wandering around town trying to find one, and Mario Kart. After I went to a few places that were close together, I started calling around. That's how I found the game. This is the first video game system I've bought since the SNES. (And yes, I do have an Atari 2600 as well.) And I am loving it! Especially Mario Kart, which is pretty much all I've played so far (I did buy another couple games.) Playing with the new controller is so much fun. And there aren't a million buttons to try to hit and use at the same time.

As you can imagine, my weekend wasn't too productive as a result, however. Between that and the Olympics, I didn't get much of any importance done.

I did play more ultimate, however. Billy and I went down to play in Santa Monica yesterday afternoon. Windy once again, but nice time. I was so tired when I got home last night. Playing on the sand really takes it out of you.

And today, in the fitness center, I did a few real pull-ups! I've never been able to do them before, so this was exciting for me. Obviously, these insane workouts I am still doing 6 days a week are paying off.

Hey, I spend most of my time with auditors, and you don't hear me complaining...

A) I wasn't complaining

B) You are an auditor (or at least were when you started there.)

I have a Wii too, but have not touched it in awhile ... because I also have a PS3 and 360, which are graphically superior.

Still, I like the Wii, but mostly waiting for the control schemes to get better.

I seem to have a hard time with the controls, but I think part of that is me. And that's not a problem with Mario Kart.
