Not much going on right now. Spent Saturday hanging out with Bill. He came over to run Gothic Earth but Jon's absence screwed up his plans and he wound up not running anything. We played Super Smash Bros. and watched "Memento" and had fun. Lots of talk about how our gaming lives would be better if one of us won the lottery. I can't get over Kelly's suggestion of the GM, at one end of the table, being able to press a button and having a specific can of soda rise up out of the table in front of any player.

Sunday was a tug-of-war over the computer, and Kelly won it most of the day. Four times she came into the office and got me off the computer after I'd been playing less than half an hour. She got about six hours of playing. Eh. I get the week off, but I have to spend most of it doing homework. I cleaned up the living room, or at least what of it was my mess, which didn't take long. :-P

Now it's Monday. I am uploading the goo now, and then I have to go pay the landlord, which will be a relief for all involved. I took Kelly's car to get an oil change - Jesus she wasn't kidding when she said it reeks. She needs to clean that car out. I may or may not go to the grocery - I'm supposed to buy groceries and cook dinner, but there's little room in that horribly stinking car to transport them home. I'll think about it.

There's a lot of cigarette ashes in the garbage right now from gaming here Friday and Bill here Saturday. My throat is itching and it smells so bad. The landlord's here to fix the toilet, again, and I hope it finally gets fixed this time. He seems annoyed, but what the fuck? It's not our fault it's busted.
