I decided to head to the Diesel after work. I played two games of Euchre, each with one person who hadn't played before. I got a Monkey Wrench (turkey, sprouts, avocado, mustard, mayonnaise on a baguette), and I even got it without cheese. That makes a decent amount of time now that I've been completely dairy free. We'll see how allergies go as the weather starts getting nicer. I think this cough that I have must be a low-grade version of one of the sicknesses that's going around, but it's mostly going away.
After Diesel, I went to play games at the House of Roses. I played Steam Tunnel, a new Cheapass game. Very nice. I think I was able to pick up the strategy pretty quickly, and I ended up winning the game. I like that I'm pretty good at picking up on strategy games like that pretty quickly. Not that I'll necessarily do better than other people in the long run, but my brain seems to assimiliate new strategies quickly.
Feeling a bit tired, I caught the earlier bus home, getting home by 9. I snacked on some olives and a Stewart's Key Lime Soda while reading my book, then I took a bath and went to bed. One thing to note about the bath was that, when I leaned back and put my head in the water, I couldn't feel the water. It literally felt almost exactly the same to have my head out of the water as it did to have it in the water. I wonder what other super powers I will discover from having shaved my head.
Lights out at 10:30, awake around 5:30 (plus numerous times during the night). Had some dreams. Lately, my dreams seem to have a large component dealing with how I feel about several people, and telling my dreams would give away too much personal information, both abot me and about them, so I am not going to write about them. I should probably start keeping a dream journal. Especially with getting up so early during the summer, I can afford the time in the morning to write down my dreams for 5 or 10 minutes.
Up around 5:45, in to work by 7. 75 pages left in the 720-page book I'm reading. Last of the 11-book series. I think I'll be done reading fiction for a little while after I finish this book (probably tonight). I've got a decent number of non-fiction books at home to work through. Speaking of books, I suppose I should try to find some time this month to have another story reading. How does Wednesday, April 30th, at 7:00 sound?
I think I'll be finishing up reviewing the eTuorial stuff today (well, I will if I stay away from too much LiveJournal today). I asked my supervisor last week if we'd be seeing this stuff again. He said that it was likely, but that it was unclear how much editing we'd be doing to it at that point. I think they're already way behind schedule, so I owuld imagine that, once they fix these errors, we aren't going to be changing anything other than the most egregious ones.
I need to take a picture for this week's photochallenge. The topic is industrialization. I think I might hop off the bus on the way home and take some pictures of this power plant on 99. I think it's a power plant. Anyway, it's all industrial-looking, and probably the best chance I'll get for this week's competition. It looks like next week's topic could very well be portrait, which I'm really excited about. I have two portraits that I've already taken that I really, really like. I think I will take some more over the weekend and next week, but I will probably end up using one of the two I've already taken. I already have permission to use one of them, but I'm unsure if I'll be able to get permission to use the other one.
