A Small Acheivement, But Still An Acheivement
Finally got on the high side of 200 again while bowling last night:
The lane tried (and succeded) to ice me before the 12th frame; the pinsetter refused to give me a full rack. But it only would have brought me up to 208, so that's no big deal.
My other games were a 134 and a 165, which averaged out to 168. I'm pretty sure that's the best I've ever done over three games (505). The friend I went bowling with was kind of ticked; usually the 170 he got would have been enough for a win. Just not that game.
I'm pretty sure that's my third game ever over 200, and they're all under 210. (Tonight's 206 tied my best). I'm also reasonably sure that's the first time I ever rolled a pair of turkeys in a game. I've gotten four in a row before, but never a pair of threes.
Random Update: From last Friday's entry: Still no manga, and the Centreville post office hasn't seen it yet. No online updates since 10/6. The postal clerk I talked to on the phone says it was sent Media Mail, which takes a long time. He said he'd keep an eye out for it.
