I still procrastinate in the mornings. Even though I got up shortly before nine, it was an hour past noon before I finally fixed myself some breakfast.
I really like drinking vessels with no handles, because of the cozy way of holding the mug, but why don't I have any that don't get searing hot to the touch when filled with hot tea?
Spent far too much of the day watching The Pirates of Dark Water that someone kindly posted a torrent of on mininova. Wow, it's a whole lot cheesier than I remembered it. Nearly all of my childhood cartoons are less than satisfying now. But it's still fun, and I cleared over half the series today.
Chicken nuggets for dinner.
Phone call to my family, ended up over an hour talking to my mom and later to Sigmund. Plans have been made for the summer.
Also played XCom some more. Stupid sectoids tried to invade one of my smaller bases, and the ten rookies stationed there kicked their asses good. Not a single cyberdisc with them, strange. Meanwhile, the mutons have sent several battleships to retaliate against my oldest base, but they keep missing it. I haven't built a mind shield, and I've let their scouts alone, but they still can't manage to find my base. Idiots.
Oh yeah, I have fusion defenses on all my bases, and it hit. Maybe the cyberdiscs all got blown up before they could land.
My butt has mystical powers of destruction. The upturned soda bottle case I've been using as a chair for the past couple of years is finally falling apart. This is the third sitting furniture I have broken from sitting on since I've moved here.. and two more have had serious wear. Perhaps I am sitting wrong, but I don't think other people ruin their chairs this fast. I'll have to get a replacement ASAP, otherwise I'll have no other choice than to either stand, or sit on Secunda. I don't want to break Secunda.
Maybe I can get a decent chair for my tax return money. But that's over a week to wait. Oh, right, credit card. But I don't want to use it.
Does anyone know where I can get a green office chair? If I'm going to buy a chair, it might as well be a good one, so I'm prepared to pay between 1000 and 2000 NOK for it, but if I'm going to spend that much on something, it had better be green. And all I can find now are black and blue ones.
