Snow day
So, it turns out the number I was trying to call last night and this morning to find out about the snow day was the wrong number (it just gave me a voice that said "You have reached a non-working number at Houghton Mifflin"). On the bus this morning, I finally thought to call my own work voicemail. There were two broadcast messages there from last night, saying the offices were closed today. So, yeah, I could have known by like 8:30 last night. Oh well. Took the next bus home, so now I have to figure out what to do with the rest of the day.

I posted my housing ad on craigslist on Sunday. I got one response on Sunday, but it was for someone looking to have two people in the room, and I'm not interested in having two people there. I got another one today from a 26-year-old fashion designer. The email was this HTML thing with a large black font on a purple background. I thought it was spam at first. But, *sigh*, I guess I should at least talk to the person.

Euchre yesterday was fun. Played many games of Euchre. Gaming was fun, as well, with that bastard majes throwing a nice little complication in our way.

It sounds like my Carcassonne partner might be all Carcassonned out. We'll see, though.

well, that's good to know. although i've been reassured twice that my pass has been fixed and does, in fact, work on weekends, this is not the case. so thankfully i didn't schlep down there and find myself locked out again.

Sorry if the bad phone number was my fault (though I thought I was sufficiently vague about my knowledge of such things.)

That's Mr. Bastard to you, buddy.
Hey, what fun would things be if everything went according to plan? As I imagine you are already aware, there's more than one story running at once in the game (as is typical to me and to real life too). That's cool for you folks, because that means that you have lots of things to choose from. Of course, ignore the wrong story line, and everyone dies a slow, horrible death. Oh, but the fun of making those choices; that's where the really joy is.

Choices

I was just thinking about that the other day, how gaming is sorta like a Choose Your Own Adventure book, except that, in the game, if you make the wrong choice and DIE, you can't flip back to the decision point and see what might have happened if you'd done things differently.

Yeah, except in those books you only usually have two or three options, instead of being able to do pretty much whatever you want.
