Happy fourth--

*yawn* Long day!

Got up at 9:00, late for me, stayed in bed for a while, reading and watching Whines snore. Eventually I got up to make coffee (topped with a little bit of the Irish Cream frosting from yesterday's cake). Very tasty, but I couldn't find my spreadsheet book after that--at about 2:00, I finally found it shut in the silverware drawer. I hope whoever I'm with when I'm 65 or 70 is prepared to put up with some serious senile dementia, I'm getting an early start on it.

Plotted for my AD&D game for several hours, and washed a few loads of laundry. That was nice. I really need to start on my book study group, but I wanted to do this as well--I haven't run a game in a year or more at this point. Got some good "work" done.

Then, started cooking. Made sweet potato salad for the picnic. This didn't take much time, it was a simple recipe. Whines came over and we played "Bomberman" for a while, until mom called us over for the picnic and fireworks in downtown Austin.

This was kind of a big step for me, and a big awkward. I really hadn't had Whines around my family since we were actually dating, and I was nervous about it, because it was also really "coming out" more than almost anything I'd done yet--there were going to be strangers to me, my mother's friends, at my picnic. Of course, nobody cared, and the pineapple salsa I brought with me was a pretty good hit. I have to offload two gallons of the stuff at work tomorrow, though.

And now it's midnight, two minutes before the fifth, so I go to sleep and get ready for another fun-filled day of spreadsheets tomorrow. *yawn* Tired, tired, but it's been a nice, long weekend.

Thanks :) I'll try to run it for more than six episodes, this time! Y'all need to get your stuff back together and come back to austin, some day...

Putting the book in the silverware drawer was really exceptional. Let's try not to graduate to the dishwasher though!

It was nice to be with your family, they were friendly as always. :)

They were in pretty good form last night. And mom's friends were interesting. It's good to know you're never too old to be aggressively immature.

I've got my book beside me--it hasn't wandered off yet, but I'm keeping an eye on it...

Ooooh, Spotty gamingness. That has been a while. Last D&D thing I remember you doing was that wacky Spelljammer campaign with the Monkey Box (TM). Heh, good times.

I liked the monkey box. I forget, did I get to the part where the PCs sold the monkeys to the mind flayers?

Yes, we did. Because then we later used the monkey box to house the shipwrecked orcs we found. And we had a scintillating conversation on whether orcs or howler monkey poo smelled worse.

Wow. I must have been smoking crack.
