Yeah...so after lecturing chebutykin on the virtues of sleep and not burning the candle at both ends, I downloaded Freeciv last night and was up until 2 AM bringing Spain into its usual place among European nations...backward, weak, and off in the corner. Stupid wombat, once again demonstrating that wisdom doesn't automatically accrue with age! ^^

In other news, the management sent us a nice little note reminding us that our lease is up as of August 30, and if we re-up for a full year they'll graciously reduce the rent to $799 from whatever insane amount they charge month-to-month renters, otherwise they want to know by the end of the month if we're planning on leaving. Consensus is that we will be, and to separate apartments; I want a place of my own, and so does Scott. Melody is correct that splitting a two-bedroom place would be cheaper, but they want to live in one of the Twin Cities and I don't. It's time for them to get out on their own and experience independent living in all its hideous complexity. So, I guess we'll be having a moving party at the end of August once we figure out where we're all going.

Finally, there's the Carnival of Gamers to look at as your Thursday chunk of linkagery.

UPDATE @1610: My man Cobb is on a roll. Start with the "Acting White" post and move on down to "Microsoft v. Google". Mmmm, tasty.

Heh, won't this be your first time living completely by yourself?

Except for a couple of months when I was stationed in Monterey, Germany and Texas, yeah. OTOH those were all in the barracks so I don't think they really count as living alone.

Heh, you'll probably find the quiet rather unnerving for a while. On the other hand, the savings on groceries and utilities more than makes up for it =D

Not to mention the rent. Most of the places I'm looking at are $200/month cheaper than this place and probably less if they give me a break for a long-term lease, as seems to be the practice.
