Comment Allez Vous?

People are reading (based upon the hit counter) but not commenting, which is somewhat like people coming to your house and not talking to you. There's my hyperbole for the day. In any case, I turned the word verification off so it's easier to comment. If I get a lot of spam it'll go back on, but I'm not popular enough that I think that will be a problem. So comment, dammit.

Funnily enough I was just going to tell you about a new product that I am selling guaranteed to increase penis size.

About Chess: You were talking about playing a really good game against a lower rated opponent. I always get a little discouraged when I am forced to play a good game against a lower rated opponent. I usually dread the first round of small weekend swisses for this reason. I need a warm up game at the beginning of a tournament. It's not very confidence boosting if I can't dispatch a 1400 in less than 28 moves.

Luckily I was warmed up since I'm unemployed and thus play blitz all day. I know what you mean though. Sometimes it just takes me a few moves into the game to switch on. That's seriously one practical reason I like theory. If theory goes to move 10, then my brain has time to start working. If I blunder in the first round, chances are it was on move 4.
