Games afternoon
Had a nice time at treacle_well's games afternoon. I played two games of Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers, bringing my total for the weekend to seven. I also played a game of Cities & Knights of Catan, which was fun. I'm glad I suggested that we play to 11 points instead of 13, since that allowed us to finish at just about the time that someone in the game had wanted to go home, and it also allowed me to get home at a reasonable time.

Speaking of time, I have 1.5 hours of time built up at work. It just struck me as I came in that I now have benefits, including vacation, sick, and personal time, so I don't have to save up time in order to be able to take time off. So, the saved up time could be used for going home early today, which would allow me to get stuff done, like getting to the bank for a roll of quarters, returning the cable modem, and making some sort of side dish with mangoes to go with dinner tonight, since I really need to use up those mangoes. Let's see, in at 7:30, 7 hours puts me to 2:30, minus 1.5 hours puts me to 1:00. Hmm, that's a bit early. I'd probably have people looking for me if I left that early. 2:30 is plenty early to leave and still eb able to get everything done, actually. I guess I can save the extra time for coming in late, or maybe for taking off early on Friday to get ready for Arisia. Of course, Arisia is right by work, so it might make sense to just go straight there from work, which would mean more saved-up time. Well, we'll see how today goes. If I really don't have much work, then I just might take off early. Right now, I have a side project from my supervisor. I don't know if I'll be getting more real work today or not.

Mmmmmmm is for mangoes.

(If you can't come up with a side dish, heck, even if you do, just cut up a couple and have fresh mango slices as a side dish. I know I'd eat them.)

And if you've really got too many and really need to get rid of them, I'd be happy to buy a couple off ya.

You probably want mangoes that are a bit fresher than the ones I have. When I was at Stop & Shop on Friday, I noticed that they still had them on sale 2 for $1.

Two words: mango smoothies.
