I asked my new friend Brendan to be my replacement Brendan (as in, best friend rochester adventure group Brendan) for chess. Everyone in "The Corner" are always playing with their Magic cards, and I just can't figure it out. I wanted to play something, too. So I asked out a new chess buddy, brought in Paul's chess board to school, and found myself engaged in some really good games with a tonne of fellows eager to play a REAL game, and not a card game.

I don't remember who I was playing against at the time (mander, maybe?), but when Brendan arrived, he looked at my pieces, and asked, "Hey, why is that horse still on the board?"
Hmm... I didn't notice, but I can take that horse no problem... So I took it. Brendan's a really smart guy. That's why I asked him to play chess with me.
Wait. Did he just say "Horse"? Oh shit.

And before I knew it, a bishop I didn't see had taken my queen.

I knocked Brendan on the ground, and made him my bitch the rest of the day. I deemed Alex (fudge'ums) my new favourite chess mate, I won my first game (ever) against Tim, I shared my master plan of a new way to play chess with Red-Headed-Charles (and he gave me some really clever pointers for getting it done right), and all of you guys have no idea who I'm talking about (that is, if you've even read this far).

Then Brendan, Nu-Ju, Sarah, Sam, JC and I went to Nu-Ju's house to watch the new Futurama movie. Then we got a gang together at the beach and everyone enjoyed the freeziness of the sand and a nice bonfire. And in between, we got lost several times, because of Brendan, and I forbade him to take shotgun the rest of the night.

Whoever read this far, you should come over to my place for a rousing game of chess.
