I got drunk Thursday night, and asked around #asr for anyone to join me in SMAC. rekenner joined me, and together we had a nice empire sprawling across significant parts of Planet. I managed to get The Empathy Guild, then rek convened the planetary council and his game crashed, and I couldn't get out from there. My bases after my first one were called Other Base, Other Other Base, and Really Other Base.
Despite drinking mainly red wine, I didn't have a hangover or headache the next morning.
Stocked up on beer last night - lately we've had some excellent summer weather, and I've often wanted to have a cold one, but I'm not the kind of person who'd steal the landlady's, no matter how much I crave it. I wish she'd treat my milk with the same respect..
I feel a bit more cheerful today. Maybe it's because it's the weekend and I don't have to feel guilty for skipping work. And niichan is visiting me next week.
Once I'm ready to head out, I'll be gone for several hours. Today's quest will be to find a place to get photos printed. I really need to get some of these out on paper and framed.
