Apparently some people here care about my well being or something like that, so I'll give you all an update. :u
After an absolutely abysmal two day trip down here, dad and I made it into San Antonio alive. We're staying in an awful little extended stay hotel, and apparently (according to the reviews I'm reading), unless I want to shell out $400 a week, this is the nicest place in the area, which is insane. I'm tempted to stay in the storage unit we got for our stuff, at least it doesn't smell awful and is at least relatively comfortable. I might have a job soon, thankfully, so hopefully we'll only have to spend a couple weeks in a hotel. I'd prefer that it weren't this one, but we literally have no more money. Gas and this place ate it all up. Other than that, I'm looking for a house for us to get into, and we're still alive.
Also I don't want to pay the $30 fee here to get a dial-up connection speed, so I'm going with my 3G Hotspot on my phone. OH BOY 2 GB MONTHLY LIMIT. /firstworldproblems
On a related note, what is the ****ing deal with competitive card games?
I'm actually reading the rest of that thread right now, and the back-and-forth on various deck builds and strategies is absolutely disheartening when you realize they actually have to pay for and/or find every card they're talking about.
Surely this is among the most asinine and least economically efficient competitive hobbies of all time.

They're fun when you're little or bored, though.
I suppose, having thought about it, it isn't any more of a money sinkhole than other collecting hobbies. Thinking about as a collection you can also play a game with, it isn't that bizarre.
It's when thinking about it primarily as a game, rather than a collection, that it baffles me. Because, Jesus Christ, if you just want to play a strategy game, play something that's both better and also doesn't require you to hunt down and buy an infinite number of separate pieces.
EDIT -- Also, I heard Kreis got shipped off to gay camp.

totally not what i thought it was going to be.
Kreis is as straight as Tom Cruise. Just only half as crazy.
