catch-up [Sep. 17th, 2006|12:20 am]
Went over to Keith's Monday evening, and we made some good progress on The RPG Project.

Wednesday evening, drove down to Denver and picked up a picture from awesome artist dude dencoartist, who asked me to pick out one of his paintings as a thank-you for the art show logo. I picked this nifty green one named "Meadow". Now I just have to find a chunk of bare wall for it...

Thursday I had a lousy and unproductive day at work, but then I went over to Tom O's for board game night, which was definitely the right plan, because socializing made me a lot less cranky. We played Acquire. I didn't do well at all, but had fun anyway.

Yesterday was nothing much in particular.

Today was lots of laundry, and then Jerry's friend/colleague/coworker Gary and his girlfriend Marianne came over to hang out and be introduced to DDR. It was keen, except for the bits where I went and lied down antisocially while waiting for my sinus headache to go away. We had pho for dinner and I got a boba mango smoothie.

I tried to come up with an interesting reflection about something for you, but my brain is tired and the best it can do is this: three guys generate a LOT of laundry. Especially when you put off doing it. Someday I will have a washer and dryer that don't require quarters...

I hope that I will never have to live in a place w/out washer/dryer again. This is something I'm grateful for everytime I do the laundry.

I grew up w/out a dryer. In the winter it was sometimes difficult to get the clothes to dry. I remember putting my jeans in the oven to try to get them to dry faster, and that I'd often walk to school with damp clothes.

In junior high they made us wait outside the school until five minutes before the first class. I waited at the doors on the east side of the building, and when the sun came up my pants would start steaming.

having your own washer and dryer is the biggest quality of life change you can imagine. It ranks right up there with indoor plumbing.

You know this already, but we have a brand new washer and dryer, they're free more often than you'd think, and we like visitors. So it's no substitute for having your own, but if you're ever out of quarters, tired of the laundromat, or looking to socialize while getting something useful done at the same time...
