Last night I finally remembered to go to frisbee club.  The other guy on the floor always forgets to come to my room and get me at the right time, and I've had trouble remembering to go also.  He still forgot me this time, but I didn't.

There were about 18 people there, so we split up into 2 teams and played Ultimate Frisbee.  I think I actually did alright.  Though I didn't make very many good throws, I excelled at catching.  I suppose the height advantage helped a little bit.

We didn't keep score, but played from 7:45 to 9:00.  Then I had a soccer game to play in.  We lost, but I think we played pretty well.  I didn't play a whole lot again, but almost all of our team was there and I was tired anyways from running around a different soccer field chasing a frisbee.  My body is complaining about the workout too, as I had sore knees yesterday, a sore hip today, and sore ribs right now.  But I'll still be trying to remember to go to frisbee club next week.

I just ate at Taco Felix's, and had 6 tacos.  I'm pretty full now.  Eliot challenged me to see how many I could eat, and I think I can do more, but for now, 6 is the current record.  When I ordered them, the waiter did a double take, and had to confirm that I actually wanted six!

I should be off to play soccer pretty soon.  Hopefully I don't populate the field with ground up tacos.

Soccer turned out to be interesting, and pretty fun.  It was actually pretty much like a hockey rink, and the ground was concrete covered with very thin turf.  The game is called rapid football, and you can play the ball off of the walls.  I think the game lasted about 1 hour, but it seemed to go pretty fast.  Probably because we were losing so much...9 to 2.  Anyways, there was a goalie and 5 others on the field at a time.  I think we had 10 or 11 people, so I didn't get to  lay more than about 10 minutes.  But I was plenty tired by then.  Here's a picture of the soccer field:

Last night we had our dorm welcome meeting.  I didn't understand a whole lot of it, but one thing I found interesting is that residents can smoke in the dorm rooms if their roommate is OK with it.  I don't plan on starting and my roommate doesn't smoke either, so it doesn't matter, but I thought it was pretty weird.  After the meeting we watched a Vin Diesel movie; I think it was called Another Man, but I'm not sure.  They had a projector outside aimed at two sheets on the brick wall, and provided pop and popcorn.

I'm probably going to be on my floor's soccer team, if I can find Julio (the RA) today to let him know I'll be on it.  I'll have to start exercising now I guess. :)
