I caught the second episode of Escaflowne on Saturday, as well as a few episodes of Digimon (nothing particularly amazing), and a bit of the “fundamentally sucky but with occasional flashes of greatness” Transformers series Beast Machines. I like Escaflowne quite a lot thus far; it has a pleasant balance between rousing action/adventure and quieter moments. And the characters are all non-trivial, which is refreshing (I cannot tell you how tired I am of cliched character archetypes — the Wise and Noble Leader, the Wisecracker, the Seductive Female).

I then got a late e-mail informing me that the dcMetro gang was meeting down at a local golf range/putt-putt course place at 8:00. So I ran down there, played the batting cages (“Boy, did you!” scream my aching shoulders), and played a round of putt-putt golf. And waddya know, I won by a single stroke!
