Busy Weekend

Man, it's been crazy.

- Friday: standard day, followed by game night. One of the more insane and character-death-filled nights we've had (but then, this IS Call of Cthulhu). In the middle of the game, checking my e-mail, I discovered that my City of Heroes account has expired. Timing on finances screwed me, as we don't get paid until Thursday. Oh well, it's only a week, I can handle it (hello again, Dungeon Runners). Only part that really bums me is a present thing that gives a badge for keeping an account from August 15th to November 15th. When is the first time my account has lapsed in three-and-a-half years? August 14th, until the 20th. Damn.

- Saturday was Six-a-Th6n, the marathon viewing of The Prisoner by myself, typsie, praenomenal, saofoir, moonchylde, worshipthesnake, and daemonwise (yes, we had 6 viewers, which is damn cool). The small but dedicated group of us made it through the first half of the series, and then the previous night's tiredness and that night's extra plans made us decide to pause there and reconvene sometime soon for Part Two. Fun times, glad you all made it.

- Sunday was "mass clean-up" and basic house things, followed by having matrixleap and herince_emyn over for ribs. Discovered I had only half-a-dozen small potatoes, when I thought I had a lot more, so, scrapped the potato salad idea. Also remembered that I had no SoCo for the sauce, so improvised that a little (changed the basic idea to go for a sweeter taste, and pulled it off). I wasn't personally happy with the way the ribs came out, but I'm my own worst critic, they certainly seemed to go over well. I think it was mostly that I wasn't paying close enough attention to what I was doing. Anyway, a pasta salad and some rice and various nibbly things, and we had a pretty passable dinner. They supplied dessert, so we all ate well and had good times, just kicked back, chatting until late hours of the night.

Which brings us back to do. Spent a chunk of today cleaning up again, and the rest in the Dungeons, where snobahr and staxxy were cool enough to join me, eschewing the City for the day. Very cool of them, to say the least; you ladies rock my world.

I'm beat. And no, no kidney stone yet.
