I bought a flashlight. Apparently this is a common household item. I’ve never owned my own flashlight before though. I had one when I was a scout. And I think both Troy and Treek owned them while I lived with them. But I’ve been living without a room mate for over a decade now. And without a flashlight.
If we do lose power, I think that I’ll miss the elevator more than the lights though. there is emergency lighting in the hallway after all.
My HD TV signal showed up today. I have watched a movie in HD. It was beautiful.
The big news last week? There was a big turnout for gaming. I ordered 8 donair (or at least donair’ish) items. Yes, the first week of the school year. Everyone is home, but most activities haven’t started yet. So everyone has time for gaming. I played Quarriors for the second time. It was much improved.
We also played Year of the Dragon. We had quite an easy event pull. I won the game by grabbing an early initiative. (The first.) I was able to turn that into being working slightly ahead of the rest of the crew for the whole game. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a game where initiative matters more. Next game I think my strategy will be to try to get the victory point persons early – court ladies, researchers and a cheap privilege.
The week in work was oddly dull. Too many people absent. Urgent matters moved forward at a slow pace. Tomorrow I am kicking it into high gear (although my scooter only has the one – I’m still looking for that nitrous attachment.)
I finished Stephen King’s latest book. I found the beginning terrifying and the middle suspenseful. The end – climax and denouement – meh.
Now – I must find a show good enough to be worthy of PVR’ing. Any suggestions?
