Fan Appreciation Day

Or, as they say in the pocket schedule, "Fantastic FANale". For some asinine reason, this is an afternoon game, which means parking would be either insanely expensive or just flat-out impossible, so I'm going to just take the Metro down there and hang around after the game until rush hour is over, I guess.

Still no carpet replacement, which means the scale and my stack o' plastic storage cubes are still taking up space in the galley, which means I have no idea what my weight is. Been eating right all week and my BG readings have been good, so I'm sure I'm in the ballpark, so to speak. (Heh.)

I may be doing a road trip with Stacy tomorrow down to Fishersville to see some NRA bigwigs say nice things about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It's a two-and-a-half hour drive from here, probably less from Chantilly and definitely less if Stacy drives. If not, well, it's not like I don't have things to keep me busy around here.

Thanks to cutelildrow for posting Enter The Freeman, which makes me want to acquire and play Half-Life even more than I already do.

I'm in the middle of re-reading The Apocalypse Codex, which may set me off on a jag of re-reading the rest of the Laundry novels when I'm done.

I thought we were doing wargaming this weekend, but I guess I was wrong; it's tentatively scheduled for the 20th. I may have gotten a politics-related temporary job by the weekend anyway; we'll see how that goes.
