Well, last weekend, we were able to enjoy the windiest windstorm we’d seen in years. When the wind couldn’t take down a phone line by itself, it did its best to knock down a tree that would then take out a phone line. Our house was one of the ones affected and it’s weird not having internet, even for a few days.
What’s going on?, I constantly wondered. Whether it be world news, local, or within my own circle, I was stuck back in the mid-90’s.
And then, on top of that, I was supposed to have a three-day weekend (WOO-HOO!) but There Was Trouble At The Mill and I was the only guy who could fix it so my alarm clock went off first thing Monday morning like regular. Dangit.
So I’m pleased to say that this weekend is a corker: it starts with a half-day on Friday. Which probably translates to video games until the wine kicks in and then Sherlock after. Saturday will have fun and games with discussion of Which Tabletop Game Do We Want To Play Next? (The choice is between the Superhero RPG, the Dresden Files RPG, and the Vornheim RPG.) Sunday has THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER. Which, if you ask me, demonstrates that wrestling PPVs were better off when they had vaguely Biblical titles. You shouldn’t accidentally invoke scatological thoughts in your audience.
Oh, and there will be the usual chores, errands, and laundry.
So… what’s on your docket?
