Off to the East [Oct. 9th, 2006|06:27 am]
Getting up in about 3 hours to fly off to Connecticut, but I'm transferring data so I'll blog quick while I'm waiting.

Visited my grandmother and my stepmom on Saturday. If I weren't so sleepy, I'd probably have some things to say about it, but I'm too tired to remember.

Before that, I went to the "Get This $#!+ Out Of Here" sale at Black & Read's secondary location down at 44th & Wads. I got 8 novels, a Straight Dope book, a CD (Joe Satriani, Surfing With the Alien), and 33 back issues of Analog for 17 bucks! Awesome! Two of the books are ones I already have but am going to take to work for the take a book / leave a book cart in the library. The rest are assorted SF/Fantasy and one Erma Bombeck.

Today I did laundry and dropped off ancient clothes from a box of old stuff from my Dad's in the donation bin and took some stuff to the storage unit. Watched X-Men 3 this evening. Enjoyed it; it mostly worked.

What else have I been up to? Oh, yeah, that's the other thing. I discovered a new game: http://www.wesnoth.org/. Freeware. Turn-based fantasy strategy, a lot like Warlords, if you remember that. Simple, but with lovely sprite graphics and very good, clean design. Nearly a hundred fan-contributed campaigns. Addictive. Watch out!

I am told that if you make \m/ in gmail chat, it automagically turns it into a proper set of horns.

Really!? I'm going to have to start using my gmail account. (I still don't like my handle.)
