Confessions, Revelations, Kicking Ass

First the confession. I play Magic: The Gathering. Competitively. Ahem.

I say this because I had a good day Saturday, and part of that goodness was Magic related. I'd feel silly saying I had a good day without full expanding on all the good stuff. Anyway. There was a release tournament on Saturday, and I won. This is good because Limited (this is where you just open five packs of cards and make a deck out of the randomness) is tough for me. I usually go 0-2 drop or 1-1-1 drop or something like that. But I went 4-0, and in fact didn't lose a single game in my four matches. Swept. Very gratifying.

The goodness continues. Winning got me ten packs. That's nice, getting free cards for having fun. But one of the cards I pealed was Psionic Blast, one of the chase rares for this set. That bitch is worth $25, and the tournament only cost $20. And you get to keep the five packs you used for your deck, so that's 15 packs (225 cards) for free, and I'm up $5. And I had fun, which is really the part that's most important. And I won. Winning is fun.

Then I came home and opened my email, and found out that Interzone bought another story. This is because I am awesome. I am awesome, and my awesomeness is becoming worldwide. I am rocking the set. Yo.

So that was Saturday. It was good.

Awesome people write serials for Dead Channel. It's an acknowledged fact. Paris Hilton says so. And you can't argue with anorexia and narcissism.

Awesome people play Magic.
They do!

Not all of them, though.

And not all Magic players are awesome either.

Why are things so complicated, I ask you...
