mark's idea of a fun day is beating me in about sixty concecutive games of speed chess while incessantly throwing my game with a rapid-fire and non stop bombardment of questions about my personal life ("do you think you get along with your father?" "have you ever had to defend yourself in a fight?" "have you ever read the great santini? would you like me to recite it to you?" "are there relationships you've had that hurt you deeply?") my idea of a fun day ends after getting beaten about nine times. which means there's going to be a whole lot of mark going "what if i spot you a rook? what if i spot you a rook and two pawns? what if i don't look at the board?" so, i was thinking of hanging out at the green line two, where i could read a novel of nauticle adventure and mark could challenge all comers -- all the while both of us enjoying frothy latte's.
anybody interested? i could try and figure out a time.
