Same as always: Film. Book. Game. Your last of each. Aw heck, I'll add a new one: Good Meal and/or Drink.

Film: V for Vendetta (excellent)
Book: Latro in the Mist, Gene Wolfe (excellent)
Game: TSOY: Freebooters
Good Meal: Honest-to-god Chicken Fried Steak at the Blue Onion. Almost covered the plate. This is a rare find in Seattle.
Good Drink: The perfect Maker's Mark Manhattan, at Sambar.

Film: Peter Jackson's King Kong on DVD. (I can't remember the last time I went to the theater.)
Book: The Living Shadow, the first story of The Shadow. I'm currently reading Carter Beats the Devil and it's damn good.
Game: Wild Talents. The people I played with were great. The game itself? Didn't really do it for me.
Good meal: I made tuna noodle casserole last night and it was quite good. My daughter had three helpings, and she usually doesn't even have seconds at a meal, so it must've been halfway decent.
Good drink: KC Roasterie coffee is very good. I had some this morning.

It just occured to me: the last RPG I played was Wild Talents, but the last game I played was Pirate's Cove, and it rocked.

Film: Fuck films. I just saw Wicked at the Oriental in Chicago.
Book: Ceremony, by Leslie Marmon Silko, for school.
Game: A homebrew I'm calling Sefer for now
Meal: The last really good meal that I actually remember anything about was, like, four months ago, at this Korean dumpling place in NYC. I've probably -- definitely -- had good food since then, but I don't recollect it, so it can't really count then, can it? No it can't.

Film: Walk the Line. Not all it was hyped to be by everyone I know. But, not bad either.
Book: Lacuna (second attempt) ;)
Game: Nine Worlds skype game session 6, last Wednesday.
Good Meal: Easy. Tonight Canada cooked supper -- some fine BBQ chicken, mediterranean vegetables and rolls.
Good Drink: Good lord, I dunno. Harp bottle was a poor excuse for draft on St. Patty's day, but it was still good.

This is going to look lame, but...

Film: Hana Yori Dango (live version)
Book: Yuki-Pon No Oshigoto
Game: Oblivion.*
Game (RPG): Shock: Social Science Fiction
Game (analog): Memoir 44
Good Meal: Pasta dumplings with pear and gorgonzoa, with spinach/walnut raviolli, at Vespa in Cary. Other than that, every goddamn meal my wife makes. For real. Her cooking is so good it once killed a guy.
Good Drink: Homemade ice coffee, mixed with a little vanilla and soymilk.

* There was a moment where I thought it was the world's first Narrativist computer RPG. Those of you who have played it, go through the Assassin's Guild missions and you'll know.

Movie: V for Vendetta (great film, but some serious flaws)
Book: American Gods by Niel Gaiman (super yarn, great balance between the humorous and creepy, awesome characters)
Game: Well, darn, a week earlier and I could have said PTA and sounded like a real Forgite. :) But actually, Big Eyes Small Mouth in a fantasy setting. (It's a campaign that was on hiatus for like a year, I had a hard time revving up the engine. ALso I think my frustration with the group's playing style is starting to show through.)
Meal: Had the Burrito Relleno at Mazatlan last week. The thing's like a huge tasty brick, and made good leftovers for the next day.
Drink: Had a nice glass of MacTarnahan's Ale at McCool's Irish Pub, on St. Pats, which is my Birthday. the factors mentioned (plus the drinking songs) made it taste all the better. Before that, an Irish Car Bomb (shot of whiskey and Irish Cream dropped into a glass of Guinness, then drained on the spot) at Kells Irish Pub, on someone else's birthday.
