Friday, webby and her bro had a couple of us over for
dinner (yummy jambalaya) and board games (Scotland Yard (now with
baseball cap for some reason), and Quelf (pizza party!). Afterwards,
Zil and I went out to the airport to pickup mycrazyhair
from the airport.
Saturday, neeuqdrazil made an amazing breakfast. We had
fresh ham and cheese buttermilk biscuits, scrambled eggs with more
ham and cheese in 'em, red grapefruit, orange juice and tea.
After that, I did laundry while neeuqdrazil was awesome
and took the car to get a headlight fixed (apparently much easier and
faster than we expected it to be, but we've never had to do it
Then I shopped, and got trousers, jeans, and a new old guy sweater
(like Mr. Rogers, but with a zipper). By the time I was done
shopping, I was Done, but I had ambitions.
I tried to disco nap, but didn't really have enough time - 30 minutes
sitting in the dark was nice, but no actual sleep occurred. I then
fussed around getting ready and overpreparing, and headed out.
metalana's party was good (I won a prize!)
Nuit Blanche was a bit disappointing (it seems like the focus is
moving away from art and onto idiots getting drunk in public and
shouting a lot), but I did at least get to hang out with thegiantkiller, which was nice.
Dark Rave was also not thrilling - the music didn't work for me, and
the crowd was sparse. Maybe I should have gone to the psy event
Nocture was running instead, but then I would have had no excuse for
the gas mask.
Also, I didn't have my boots laced tight enough, so my right foot has
large raw blisters now. My left foot has split skin thanks to the
weather shift, so I'm limping with both legs today.
I got home from Nuit Blanching at 5am, wound down enough for bed by
about 6. I got up around 10, and made buttermilk pancakes while neeuqdrazil cooked peameal bacon.
After that, we had a session of God Save The Queen (my Nano-Victorian
Future game), and much fun was had - we actually managed to get
all the present players together in the same place and time, while the
plot moved forward. There is a quite a bit of new stuff at The Wiki. I
recommend the quote
I also made some spicy (chili, ginger and cinnamon) chocolate chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, just because.
Sleep supply insufficient, but weekend good.
