Anytime I do one of those sloppy rundown posts to catch up with my life, I always say to myself that I should update more frequently, even if I don't have anything to say that seems like it is important. After all, it is hard to pinpoint what is important from the inside-out; I think about some imaginary digital archeologist in the future, sifting through the ruins of the start of the Information Age...I mean, seriously, I was here before there was an internet, I used computers when they were just a hip new fad, I am an early adopter...I'm a pretty good primary source. So yeah, if I blather, if I dither, I can always use that as my excuse. Who knows what Future Anthropologist will be writing his thesis on? Maybe it is about gym habits of the urban middle-class. Maybe! So yesterday. I'd finished The Wise Man's Fear & so I needed a new book to read. I actually have a handful of books I should read, so Jenny & I walked to the bookstore to buy Seraphina, Terra's pick for the Eleven-Books Club. After that we walked down to Benchmark to have brunch: a French Farmer cocktail & a salad with grilled strawberries for the first course & another French Farmer & a burger with gruyere & bacon for the second. Then over to Bar Reis to play games. Normally on Saturday it is David's campaign, but that was cancelled, so instead Jenny & I climbed the spiral staircase & played Dominion. Still haven't played a non-two-player game, which I imagine radically changes things. I am starting to learn cards that I like & cards I don't, but I haven't seen the deeper strategy, I suspect. Anyhow, anyone who liked Dominion would probably really like doing a draft of Magic: the Gathering cards, because that sort of "deck building" is basically Dominion's premise. fatbutts stopped by to say hello, & then we came back here & I sort of fell asleep for a minute while Lilly & Jenny talked. From there? Jenny vanished for a few hours to get her nails done & I played Kingdom Rush. I've beaten all the levels, beaten them all on Heroic, & so I'm doing the Iron Challenge now. When Jenny got back we tried to watch A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, but it wasn't very good. Before too long, though, the new Doctor Who episode came on, so that was a merry end to things.
