the other day i hooked up with si & monica for, what, some quick face time. i wanted a cave-like conspiracy, but they gave us...urinal chocolates! it went down thus: "hey," said mordicai "i don't want to get drinks, so lets meet at a coffee joint." & simon was like "no drink?" & i said "let it go! coffee!" & he said "where?" to which i replied "huh? where?" & we settled on cosi. because they also have cocktails. but then they shoo'ed us out! doing their "table service only!" to which monica replied: "i like chocolate!" so fuck 'em & we went to max brenners. where they have chocolate pizza, chocolate spagetti, whatever. i'd had some kind of craving for dark chocolate & chilis, you know straight up aztec gangster style, which i got, but it turned out to be just spicy hot chocolate; way milk & sugared up. sad face mordicai! i hate sweets, but i do like savory chocolate (it chemically forces me to!)
otherwise, it has been kind of knuckle-draggingly tired. not for any reason i can tell. sunday was mike's oisos game, with some post-modern, post-dnd storytelling experimentation that went really well. all the pc's crafted up some npcs for themselves & then we did a power-hour focus on each character. as i'm invested in flipping the equation around, i was interested both as a participant & an observer. it worked! which was cool.
