How did I spend my weekend? Glad you asked...
Watch Farscape, in preparation for next week's season premiere.
- - Taped until 7:00, then watched part of an episode. Decided to watch Big Trouble in Little China DVD we've had for ages and never watched. Lou insists commentary track be turned off, as he wants to hear movie. About 1/3 of the way through the movie, the machine starts misbehaving and we can't get it to show without skipping anymore. We give up and I play FFX until the wee hours of the morning.
- Bike ride along the East Bay Bike Path.
- - Nope.
- Get some work done on a few games (SSC and IMiA, and get new player up to speed in TBE).
- - Nope, none of this got done.
Play some FFX.
- - Got a lot of this done. Almost finished capturing creatures in the Omega Ruins, or so I thought. Turns out that some of the creatures I've been capturing in there aren't counted as being in there, and I have none of one specific creature at all. I ran into them once, when I first went into the ruins and died, and then haven't seen them since. Annoying. Played lots of Blitzball too. I need to do some more to get the Jupiter Sigil, to power up Wakka's weapon. Did get the Status Reels and Auroch Reels in order to get the Sigil. Spent lots of time trying to capture butterflies and not having much success. Still have to dodge lightning 200 consecutive times and try to beat the Chocobo trainer with time of 0:0:0. Am thinking that some Legendary Weapons are Not Worth It.
- Get some writing done, at least Ennis' response to Kit in the Letter Blog, and hopefully more Margaret stuff done for the ATF blog.
- - Nope.
Go to sister-in-law's house to install network card in their Mac, before they move to Bridgewater.
- Additional bits
- Went to breakfast a Percy's after figuring out we didn't have large enough dish to put microwave bacon rack into oven.
- Went to WalMart for new dish for said rack, fans, and other tidbits (lamp for Lou's trip, feminine things for me.
- Took walk around park.
- Went to see hole in in-law's backyard. It now has a concete foundation in it for the addition to their house.
- Out to dinner, then home. Husband realizes that he'd know our plans for the weekend if he actually read my blog after I tell him that WalMart was originally scheduled for Sunday.
Possibly breakfast out at Percy's.
- - Breakfast with Pat & Betsy and their nieces.
Possibly go to pick up some fans at WalMart, since the heat approacheth (and the humidity), and Lou needs them for his conference anyway.
- - Done on Saturday.
- Maybe another (or a first) Bike Path ride.
- - Nope, though there is beautiful weather for it.
- Maybe some FFX.
- - Nope.
- Maybe actually start reading Diplomatic Immunity. Or finish I Dare.
- - Nope. Decide instead to read Cassandra Claire's Draco Veritas, third in Holy Trilogy. New chapter due out within a week which will have lots of stuff revealed in it, and want to not be spoiled.
The Sunday Game, in which we may fight more of the Freak Legion, may find an unexpected ally in the prisoners, and maybe have Betsy's character Storm get her cohort (finally!).
- - Done. Met Gunnar "The Grizzly," who is werebear. Pound on one more member of Freak Legion, but only defeat lackeys. Betsy approves surprise cohort, of which I cannot mention here because she reads this blog.
- Additional Bits
- Did the Great Underwear Search after breakfast. Lou needs 3XL boxer briefs. Search and search and drive and search, and only in last place we were going to look anyway, finds them. While driving, we chat about what happened during (as Lou calls it now) Age of Mystery in our game world. We have 9,000 (+/-) years of blank space between my game and our current games. We have no idea what happened then, and why civilization isn't more widespread in current game, with all that time. Ah, but now we have vague clue, with great reasons/rationalization! I love it when a plan comes together.
- Also picked up Harry Potter DVD while at WalMart for GUS.
