Here we go. I’m taking a break from my relentless pursuit of To-Do List completion to recap May’s progress. You can see my full Summer 2010 to-do list here.
23. see Kick-Ass
Expect a review in Movie Maundering.
30. play in an MtG draft
4th place out of 11 players seems okay. Got some really good cards, and the Rise of the Eldrazi set is ri-freakin-diculous.
33. buy a magic box
Completed, finally. I have an 800-card deck box with which to carry my spell cache from kitchen table to kitchen table.
80. clean out University email account
Cut emails from over 800 to under 60.
82. organize music collection
Hooked the old iPod up to my laptop and renamed wrong tracks, cleared off duplicates, and otherwise sorted things out. Figured it would be an hour tops. Three hours later…
83. remove all NWA, Spinal Tap, Colin James, Simcoe Street Mob, and Red Hot Chilipeppers tracks.
Completed with pleasure. I did not put any of these on my iPod personally, save for “Californication” by the Chilipeppers (which has a special hatred in my heart), and have resented them all ever since they popped up on my playlist.
95. play a drinking game while watching the Transformers Season 1
Holy balls. “Drink whenever the humans need saving…” The Galvatron: 4 parts gin, 2 parts pomegranate liqueur, 2 parts blueberry liqueur, 3 parts club soda.
7 goals is really not where I wanted to be sitting after a month of summer, but looking at my list, many of the goals are repeat behaviors for the entire summer, so I don’t feel bad, as I’m on track for most of them. Notable goals in the works include the reading of the Silmarillion (230 pages in!), educated hating of Lost, fitness goals, and the building of a huge Magic card order. And of the times Newbs has attended Shufflingdead Basketball, he has been defeated 1/1 times.
So a little behind, but June should bring more progress.
