An Xbox sorta Tuesday

Well with the weather so dreary it wasn't hard to decide what to do today....actually, I got up around 0900, and didn't stop "moving" (moving being a relative term: I didn't go outside or travel anywhere - not even to base) and settle down until like 1500...Spent a bit of time chatting on MSN, and we have a plan in place for trying to find a friggin' Wii....

So I settled in an fired up the Xbox and tried out Catan (as in Settlers of, so that was a pun back there at the beginning of the sentence y'all). First I place the computer to get a feel for the game and I won...yippee...so then I tried out a match on Xbox live - which basically matches you up against people of similar skill level. So I got matched up against 3 other noobs and guess what, I kicked some major ASS - baybee! I busted out the biggest army and was the first to 10 points. Then right at the end of the game I get this message - network error prevented you from connecting to the game...and I don' think it saved the victory....I played against, and got trounced because my Choose Wood on the Red 8 (sorry no time to explain the scoring) and having a Red 6 on the side of the board with the Wood Port-strategy failed miserably....The number 8 got rolled so few times....and w/o access to stone to build cities (again, didn't I tell you no explanation this time?) I was royally fucked...but again I got the same error message right as it flashed this Japanese girl (at least I think she was Japanese) as the victor...network error and I don't think my loss was recorded either...What the hell? Anybody familiar with Xbox know what the heck this means?
