Last Monday I got a vasectomy. lildomino went with me, and took care of me while I recovered. While I sat unmoving with a lapful of ice we hung out and watched Super Size Me and Mystery of the Nile. At 6 PM I went over to icespark’s for MUX night. icespark grilled some of my favorite food for dinner, and then I got distracted from the MUX by Bones and House. I did eventually focus and have fun on the MUX – I got to temp Red Alert and get into a big confrontation with (original character) Dust Devil. Ah, geek amusement!
Tuesday I had off work again to recover from the vasectomy. I had big plans for being productive all day, but any time I actually have time to journal of course I don’t feel in the mood to write. I did work on my Star Trek campaign for mishiell, and then I snuggled with icespark to start watching Bones from the pilot and season one. Around seven lildomino picked me up and I spent the rest of the night at her place, playing on my laptop, doing more work for Star Trek, and generally procrastinating instead of journaling. lildomino even turned off the TV so I could concentrate, but no go.
Wednesday I had to return to work, and after work I went to mishiell’s to role-play. We progressed further in her campaign, and mishiell got an opportunity to discover more about what might have happened to her character and how she got into her current situation. Unfortunately I was a little distracted and tired, so I told some of what I should have showed, but it was a fun time nonetheless.
Thursday I got to drive down to visit she_oft_sings and see her now apartment (which is roomy and spiffy). I haven’t gotten to hang out and talk with she_oft_sings one-on-one in ages, and we stayed up rather late catching up and watching cool videos that she made. We didn’t get enough of a chance to get to know each other the first time we hung out, so I’m hoping this will give us an opportunity to restart and grow our friendship.
