Well, next week is my birthday, and to celebrate I took the week off. So I get to loaf and be generally useless for nine days/nights. Woot. The only plans I have (so far) are to see Civil War and to game on Saturday and Sunday.

Other than that, we're close to the end of our time in the apartment. Chris is moving to just outside Green Bay, WI to live with our former roomie from the house, Anna, and I'll be moving with ANOTHER former roomie, Dave, in his house. The dates for our respective moves are slightly in the air, but he'll be mopving sometime in June, while I may be here through July and (if shit goes wrong) August.

I hate moving, but at the same time I hate paying way more than I should for what I'm getting. Especially since me alone in a two-bedroom apartment would just be too much. Other than that, life is life.

Okay. Yesterday was my birthday, and a bunch of people were nice enough to throw me a nice little party. We had sirloin steak on the grill, baked potatoes and steamed broccoli for the meal, and I got some beer for myself because dammit, its my birthday and I wanted a beer or two. :)

[livejournal.com profile] joshuwain was the prime mover behind the party, with [livejournal.com profile] foeclan, [livejournal.com profile] phineus and our friend Todd supplying food and labor. [livejournal.com profile] khirsahdrgn and [livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn were also in attendance. Thanks to you all!

A few more details about my campaign were hammered out, and the creation of characters has begun. Some of the players and I will be getting together on Friday, and whomever is left I'll work with on (probably) Monday to get things squared. Mostly it will be me approving builds and back-stories. Once I have all that information, I'll go back into the adventure and tailor some of the bits, and I'll also distribute the goodies to the characters- additional cash and the ever-popular magic items.

As once again I didn't sleep well yesterday, I've taken a couple of cold-caps to make certain I get at least some sleep today. I'll finish covering my windows later this week, when I can get together with the folks and get the black foamboard and brads (teeny nails) to put it up with. The lack of light will definitely help. I'm also stripping my bed and remaking it before I crash this morning with fresh bedding and such. That sometimes helps as well.

Went out today with [livejournal.com profile] foeclan, [livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn, [livejournal.com profile] khirsahdrgn and [livejournal.com profile] phineus to the Source, followed by Mac's (A little fish & chips place) and Cub (grocery store for those who don't know). I got a GM screen for Pathfinder... And I'm impressed. Its set up like a GOOD hardbound book-cover, solid and glossy, with good hingepoints and four panels of tables and data. Me likee! And [livejournal.com profile] foeclan got me the Bestiary 2 for my birthday! Thank you!

And this means more work on the game awaits. :)

As of 3:15 AM Central today I turned 45 years old. Feels about the same as 44 did, really. The folks gave me money, and that was spent on a pile of books and a fan for the computer. Woo. ;) The REAL gift may be new carpet in the upstairs, but that'll probably happen after their trip to Alaska in July. Today I've done very little, which I think is a good way to spend a birthday, though I did get out to Target to replace my ancient and now broken keyboard for the gaming computer. I now have a wireless Logitech keyboard- it has a nice keyfeel, quieter than the old keyboard and a bit more comfortable to use. However, it does seem to lose connectivity once in a while, but I can live with that cos I don't have that damned cord to wrangle anymore.

Other than that, I work tonight and REALLY ought to deal with dishes and recycling- tomorrow is trash day and the biweekly recycling pickup.

I R so exciting. :)

Oh- the books I got were:

Blood Lite (a collection of horror stories tending to the lighthearted and comedic)
Three Mercy Thompson series books by Patricia Briggs: Iron Kissed, Bone Crossed and the new one, Silver Borne.

Three of Patricia Briggs' OTHER series, Alpha Omega: On the Prowl, Cry Wolf and Hunting Ground.

I also got a copy of Silver Borne for a friend- Half Price Books had two copies of the hardcover so I got 'em both.

On Tuesday [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain, [livejournal.com profile] foeclan and I took [livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn out for his birthday; we hit Old Chicago for dinner (marred only by the table of screeching harridans by the door), then went to Best Buy and Half Price Books. It was a nice night, and aside from his gift I went and got myself something- 'Godzilla Raids Again' which is also known as 'Gigantis the Fire Monster'. Whee!

In other news, yesterday I picked up one of those rubber grooming brushes for Lady, to help her with the shedding issue- she's been having hairballs, so the more loose fur I get off of her the better. She likes it, and I should be able to build a third cat soon. O.o I also got them a new water bowl, one of those with the flanged bottom so Spaz can't dump it anymore!

Work is work, and I've decided to stay at Baker. It could be a LOT worse after all, and the walking isn't too terrible compared to the walking hells that Ive been on. Saturday is the return of the Vanguard game, which is slowly winding down to its conclusion, and Sunday is the second run of Ben's 7th Sea campaign! I'm looking forward to both, especially since I now can get actual sleep before the Saturday game!

Oh, and on Monday I made a roast REALLY late, inviting [livejournal.com profile] foeclan and [livejournal.com profile] feezlekahn to share in it. The roomies went out for food, and [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain was at a Fringe Fest play, else they would have been invited too. There was also chocolate cake. ;)

I had MEAT today for a late birthday gift! [livejournal.com profile] foeclan, [livejournal.com profile] joshuwain, [livejournal.com profile] feezlekhan and I went out, originally headed to my favorite resturant, the Black Forest Inn; however, it was closed for Memorial day, so a second location was picked: Fogo De Chao, which is a Brazillian steak house. Check it out at www.fogodechao.com ! Anyway, we had Meat. MEAT. MEAT! And it was good. The best resturant that I'll never be able to afford myself. ;)

I also received the movie 'Night Watch' from Joshuwain- Great movie. :) Thanks guys!

My birthday is later this month, on the 24th. So, as my stove was dying a slow death I talked to the folks to see if they'd be interested in getting me a new (inexpensive) stove for my birthday. And lo and behold, I have a new stove! Its a basic Magic Chef stove-and-oven unit, no frills. But that's all I need. :) Now I have to get used to the broiler-drawer thing...

Oh, and the cleansing hath begun! Eek.
