(untitled 313)

When I went outside to take my break at work today, I saw the following scratched on the stone next to me:

good lovin
be here 2:30

I sat there for a good 15 minutes (2:30 - 2:45), but I never found anything remotely resembling "good lovin". Sigh.

Just now, I was sitting here at my computer watching a gamecast of the Rockies-Pirates game and listening to music. The final battle music from Chrono Trigger (you know, where you're fighting Lavos) came up just as Carlos Gonzales hit a two-run homer in the first inning.

Suddenly, I felt like a supervillain demolishing a weak, insignificant foe, and it was FANTASTIC.

Listen for yourself and imagine!

Yes, I may be a gigantic nerd, but you know what? I don't particularly care, so long as I'm happy with it.
