I have been diligently working on a major presentation I had to present yesterday afternoon. I have spent over 2 weeks on it, and it was in front of a major client. I was completely prepared and the entire audience changed 30 minutes before I had to present, which meant some serious ad-libbing. I work best under pressure and talking to people, so it went flawlessly.
This was (I think) big hurdle #1 for me to score the job I want. I think I passed it with flying colors, so we'll have to see what happens now...
Joey is with my parents until Sunday, which was exactly what I needed to get the presentation finished and everything. Been nice not having to worry about what he was doing, but its time for him to come home.
Seems like the D2 experiment failed. I never had the chance to pick it up, and now I probably won't. In the meantime, I've gotten myself hooked on "Medieval:Total War." I used to play "Shogun:Total War" but it bored me after a while. MTW is much much much more complex (I like to refer to it as 'exquisitely complex' because it is complex enough to keep things interesting for a long long time). I have had to restart several times now that I'm getting the hang of how to play it (banishing the pope, taking the papal states, and putting up a puppet pope early in the game is a bad bad idea... when he comes back, he's got an army that can simply walk over you). I've started with Italy, but may try my hand at an arabic country next (naptha throwers!!).
Anywho, if anyone wants to do a MTW online game, or just talk strategy, I'm pretty heavily into it now
