Dave: 24
Chessica: 82
Stalemate: 5

I've kept my 1:3 ratio against Chessica, down from 1:5 and 1:4, respectively. Today Chessica was set to beat me, and I wrangled a draw out from under her pointy robotic nose. Hah!

The NYT had an article entitled, "I Love You, But You Love Meat" -- about "mixed" couples, like vegans and/or vegetarians living with omnivores. That headline annoyed me, made me want to come up with my own reply to it...

"I Love Meat. You're Made of Meat. Therefore, I Love You, Too"

Chessica v. Daibh

Dave: 15
Chessica: 53
Stalemate: 3

I feel like Hillary Clinton! "Yay, I won!" Hardy har har. But I won handily in that 15th game, so I'm pleased with that.

I voted for Obama, of course, as did Spousette. While Clinton's still got a strategic edge in the race, her followers mistake her weaknesses for strengths, and her strengths for weaknesses, and they'll get smoked in the general election, if Clinton wins the nomination. It'll be like Kerry, Dukakis, Mondale, etc.

Another tie

Dave: 12
Chessica: 48
Stalemate: 2

Another tie! Woot! Yes, Chessica pulled ahead a couple, but still....

B1 is like "How many have you won, Daddy?" and I told him. And he asked, "What about Chessica?" and I told him, and he said "You need to win a LOT more." and I said "I know."

Dave: 11
Chessica: 45
Stalemate: 1

Still inside the 5:1 ratio, so I've gained a bit of ground, although Chessica's been stomping me lately.
