I thought it was impossible!

I got the 2048 tile!

It's because for the first time ever, the bottom row where I keep all the higher numbers did not get clogged up. It's really nicely organized. screenshot of 2048 tile game, with only a few tiles in bottom right corner arranged by size

Whew. Fortunately this is not the sort of game where I start playing and look up 2 hours later--I play one, lose, and am able to go back to doing what I was doing before. But hopefully this means I can stop playing it.

I am currently at the point with The Creation where I love it to pieces. The concert went well, and I haven't been able to get it out of my head for awhile now. It is such a great oratorio, I love it. I found a really good recording on youtube, and I'll write up a big entry about it. But for the moment it's basically what I've got on nearly all the time. There are some parts which are not as exciting (the part in the third movement when Adam and Eve are singing about something, zzz) but the part where they sing in duet with the choir make up for it--the orchestra is so sprightly and the baritone, in particular, gets such a fun part.

I think I have finally listened to "I was a fool" enough times that I have been able to stop listening. Instead I have fallen in love with Simon Keenlyside as Papageno, embarrassingly enough, but he is amazing in the role:
(Birdcatcher aria)
(Papagena duet...though I question the staging a bit...)
It's the 2003 BBC version with Diane Damrau as the Queen of the Night and Will Hartmann as Tamino. And speaking of Damrau she is amazing as the Queen of the Night asdjkflj.

Haha I've seen that one! I like the neutral colours of this one though. Like xkcd, I'm actually pretty charmed and I wonder what kind of pretty colour 4096 would be.

I spoke too soon re: non addictiveness of 2048. It's like at first, it was impossible so I would stop after one game. But now...I WON ONCE I CAN DO IT AGAIN *plays again*
