Huh, weird. I didn't realize that I haven't updated since Monday. It sort of makes sense, though, because this week has been particularly busy at work. Every now and again I have a week or two in which lots of things either come due at once, or arrive from somewhere and require my immediate attention. Both happened this week, so I had a lot to do in addition to what I normally have to get done every week. Anyway, all of this means that I spent many long days at work -- Wednesday I was there until twenty to midnight.

Monday night was pretty fun, now that I think about it because Matt came over to have dinner. We chatted for a bit and I used my George Foreman Grill for the first time to make some chicken brats. After dinner we played Magic and then he helped me load Diablo II on my computer. He, Mike, and Jim play online fairly often and they'd really like to get me into it, too. Then he took off and logged on at home, so we played for a bit. It was fun enough.

Tonight I went to the regular Thursday game of The Riddle of Steel. It seems like this game is starting to gell a bit. Tonight's game was very good and most of us are headed in the right direction after a few misunderstandings.

I'm getting the but to play or run a game again, but I can't decide between a fantasy game or a super-hero game. I'm actually tempted to use the Mutants & Masterminds rules to play a fantasy game -- not a long one -- mostly just to experiment with it to see how it goes. I dunno, I'll have to think about it.

Jim lent me the movie Drop Dead Gorgeous, so I watched that earlier in the week. I'd never seen it before, but it was pretty damn funny. Now I've starting watching the Spider-Man DVDs of the show that was produced by MTV. The computer animation is a little jarring -- don't get me wrong, it's excellent, it's just weird to watch -- but the writing is very good and the stories are a lot of fun. I'm definitely glad I picked it up.

This weekend I think I'm heading to Orcas Island(s?) with Katie, Kate, and Beth (and maybe more people, I'm not sure). they wanted to get away for a while and asked me to come with. It sounds like we're going to laze around, watch movies and, well, that's about all. It's kind of funny to me because a month ago I'd never been on one of the ferries here and I'd never been to one of the islands in the sound, and now I'll have done both twice in the space of a month.

I made an appointment with the doctor next week to discuss seeing a nutritionist and getting some advice on how else I might handle losing some weight again. I'll let you know how it goes.
