I purchased The Orange Box a while ago, before the game pack was released. I have had the content pre-loaded since it was available, and although I was in Tucson this week and unable to play when it came out on wednesday, I was able to remote into my computer at home and decrypt the game files so I could play when I got home. Well, I came home last night, and the first thing I did (well, second after being jumped by my dog, as usual) was to start Portal. It turns out that the game isn't very long, as I was able to finish the main storyline last night, but overall, it's hard to overstate my satisfaction. It was easily the most fun I've had playing a game in quite some time. The folks at Valve and Aperature Science did an excellent job. And now, time for cake.

I have started summer school. In a week, I am already a fifth through one of my classes - Finance 867, a class on options and futures.
Anyway, when I am not doing that, I am playing Oblivion. I started that last week, and I am already in for about forty hours. What can I say - it's quite addicting.
