Random Tales of Random(tm).
I started playing a bit of Hearthstone four days ago, mostly because I showed it to my flatmate and he really took a liking to it, and I enjoyed our initial matches.
Okay, so two days ago, I friended some random dude off Ranked I had a fun match against (even though I lost). Yesterday, while I was at uni, I noticed he accepted the friend request, so we started chatting a bit, some random initial smalltalk ("where u from", the like, turns out he's from Portugal), when a meatspace friend of mine appears and sees I'm playing Hearthstone, so he gives me his gamertag, and I add him.
"1 friend in common"
At that point, I literally had two friends on my list - my flatmate, and that dude from Portugal. So I asked the dude, whom I was still chatting with, if he knew a guy by the name of [gamertag of my meatspace friend]. He was very surprised when I told him that friend is currently sitting next to me.
The world is a frighteningly small space.
In other news, I played Arkham Horror (board game) with a bunch of friends today, and we actually won, albeit barely. We defeated Ithaqua with everyone but me dead and me on my last breath.
