So, last night, I was at a wedding - I did all the chores first thing in the morning, then went to buy a wedding gift, but the store wouldn't be open for another half hour. So I went to the h.h. gregg next door, mostly to pass the time but also to see their selection of washing machines. Long story short, they were having a 25% off sale that would be over by the time I got back and one of the cheaper washers was perfect for my needs, and they do free delivery on weekends. So I bought one. It means I've got to do the necessary cleaning in the free time I don't have next week, but I've been on tighter timelines before, and it doesn't have to be perfect. Just mostly perfect. I had lunch, then headed to Mom's house whence we proceeded to the wedding venue. It was a nice (read: short and sweet) ceremony followed by a party right there in a repurposed barn, where even I ended up moving to the music a bit despite myself. I also read a chapter of the Bridge book I'd bought at Half-Price Books because all the chores were done so quickly. (I bought a few old PC CD-ROMs, a couple of Sookie Stackhouse novels for fifty cents each, and a book of celebrity anagrams as well before I was able to extract myself from the store.) It's an older book on Precision bidding, from the time when strong twos were still in vogue (more than I'm aware of them being, anyway), so the book doesn't really describe how the auction proceeds from one. It shouldn't be too hard to work out, anyway, and now I have a physical book I can hand to anyone at work who's interested in learning the system and trying it in practice. I'd like to finish it over the weekend, but I expect I'll need to go over it a few more times before it really takes. That's most of what happened at the wedding, although one of the bride's cousins dressed as Elvis and gave her the Elvis wedding she always wanted. That was pretty funny. The party went really late, so when we got back and I didn't feel like setting up the CPAP in an unfortunate place near the futon, I didn't sleep very well. I'm hoping for better tonight, but we were up pretty late playing King of Tokyo (my youngest brother is staying until tomorrow). The best moment was when my brother had Acid Spit (apply poison to the target every time you deal damage) and I was running low on HP, so I bought Complete Destruction in desperation, which is worth nine victory points if I can roll all six symbols on six dice. I managed just that on the next turn, bringing my eleven points to the twenty needed for victory while I still had one HP left. It's a pretty great game, and I'm considering getting King of New York, if I can ever get the song out of my head. I wasn't very hungry at dinner, so I hope a bowl of soup and a side of cole slaw will be enough to get me to breakfast tomorrow. I also ate a bunch of crackers.

Signature

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
