is now getting better as the weekend approaches. I have to work
today, so I won’t get a three-day weekend like most people, but I’m
happy to get Sunday/Monday off at least, which I’m using to go down to
Evansville. I went to InCon last night with
HotaruGirl, Eldari, and Mishiell, which was a lot of fun, and tonight
I’m going to the CCS/CBA bout.
Sunday I spent the day with Pandara. She woke me up pleasantly in the
morning wearing cute pigtails, and after breakfast we hung out with
LilDomino and took a nice long nap. When we awoke we relaxed and
played on our laptops, eventually ordering pizza so we wouldn’t have
to bother venturing out again. I had a great weekend with Pandara,
and I’m definitely glad we set aside some unscheduled time to just
hang out and relax. We both needed it, individually and as a couple.
Monday I didn’t have to work since I have a Tuesday through
Saturday shift this week, so I spent all day hanging out at Pandara’s
while she was at work and LilDomino was asleep. When IceSpark got
home I went over to her house and we went out for dinner. We decided
we’re not going to make Mondays default MUX days anymore, but since we
were too tired to do anything else we wound up MUXing anyway. I got
in a little bit of personal role-playing and set things up for a
bigger event Thursday.
Tuesday was a horrible day. Through a misunderstanding I caused
StephanieBCl much distress, and in trying to fix it I got Pandara
upset as well. Since I was stuck at work answering calls, I couldn’t
get anything resolved until after I escaped at 6. StephanieBCl and I
had plans with Mishiell after work, but she’d had an equally bad day
and so we decided to reschedule. I called Pandara to calm her down,
and then hung out with HotaruGirl until StephanieBCl arrived.
HotaruGirl headed out, and StephanieBCl and I talked and then went to
dinner at Denny’s. When we got back we played on our laptops until
late, and then watched Family Guy before bed.
Wednesday I was depressed due to lingering stress from the day before.
I’d planned to go to derby practice, but I’d forgotten that I’d
promised to give my sister a ride to airport, so I did that instead.
Afterward I picked up IceSpark for ice-cream. We sat outside, enjoying
the nice weather until I felt better. When I got to LilDomino and
Pandara’s, they jumped into my car and we went to get Chinese food at
On Time. Afterward LilDomino cleaned and then we all snuggled ‘til
Pandara and I passed out and LilDomino got back up for the rest of the
Thursday night when I got off work I went home and hung out with
HotaruGirl and Mishiell until they went downstairs to swim. I got onto
the MUX and ran a short TP meeting before running a climactic battle
between evil Shattered Glass Optimus Prime and heroic Megatron on top
of Sherman Dam. Megatron’s player is expecting a baby and is
therefore seldom on after dark, so I was happy for the opportunity to
role-play with him. Pandara came by after work and I snuggled with
her when I finally logged off the MUX.
Last night after work I went to InCon with Mishiell, HotaruGirl, and
Eldari. After dinner with HotaruGirl, we attended a Subgenius Devival
and then a midnight showing of Repo!
The Genetic Opera. HotaruGirl decided she doesn’t like
Repo! that much after all, but agreed with me that a a
Graverobber costume might be good for the cosplay Halloween party we
plan to attend this year. I have Repo! On DVD, so I should
start working on one soon instead of waiting until the last minute
like I usually do.
Today I had to work, so I came in an hour and a half early to avoid
all the crap going on downtown. I didn’t know at first if the effort
would be worth it, but when I went to Subway at the beginning of my
shift to get breakfast, the woman working there said it took her an
hour to get to work. Luckily by the time Trmo came to meet me for
lunch, things had calmed down and she had no problem getting here.
After work I’m running to the Circle City Socialites bout against
Bloomington’s Code Blue Assassins – IceSpark’s old team. I’ll be late
because of my work schedule, but it should still be fun. Sunday I’m
driving down to Evansville to hang out with Urma Sunday night and to
see my mom on Monday since I have the day off the for holiday.
Have a good Independence Weekend, everyone! (Well, at least, my
American friends…) See some of you at the bout!
