Splurge
I went to Bartley's in Harvard Square for dinner with theora last night. I got the Professor Skip Gates Burger (teriyaki sauce and pineapple), and she got the Viagara Burger (blue cheese and bacon). I successfully avoided dairy, even the temptation to get one of their frappes.

After dinner, we headed to the Garage so theora could browse CD's. As we got up the the second floor, we see geeyodi, dannarra, and xastalask. They are there waiting for majes to finish his monthly go-out-and-get-drunk-with-people-from-work night. So we all go and hang out in Newbury comics, and I think everyone came out of there with some purchases. I picked up a CD by Apocalyptica, four guys with cellos who do covers of other tunes, including stuff by Metallica. They had one CD of just Metallica, and one CD of a mix, which is the one I've heard bits from before, so I got that one. I also picked up something that I mistakenly thought was music by Clive Barker. It turns out that it's music that Clive Barker compiled, stuff from his own collection that he likes. So, we'll see if that ends up being good.

Then we headed over to Pandemonium, where I picked up four Knights of the Dinner Table comics. Two recent issues (#74 and #75) and the first two of a special three-part series. I've read the regular ones already, and I'll probably read the other ones today.

majes found us at Pandemonium. As theora and I were about to leave, I decided to suggest a game of Cities & Knights. So we ended up meeting back up chez majes and played Cities & Knights. I didn't know that xastalask hadn't played before, so it was a bit longer since I had to explain the rules. I must have been a really good teacher, though, since he won the game. Very late night, and I stayed up even later reading comics.

A very nice evening, especially considering I woke up yesterday morning expecting to just come home after work and plop in front of the television.

Hmm, I should probably resist the temptation to read the rest of my comics right now. I should at the very least get dishes done today, and I want to do some Krayzen editing and at least a little bit of programming. I was also reminded last night of my New Year's resolutions, so I think I want to review those, pick one thing I haven't done yet, and set a goal of making significant progress on it by my birthday.

Skip Gates was a friend of my father's, and is a great writer. I didn't know he had a sandwitch named after him. :-) Sounds yummy; I'll have to check it out.
