How pithy of me.
Anyways, I’m getting tired of my own laziness and need to get my act together soon. I want to finish customising a template for the site, I have several ideas for art projects I want to start, I need to finish editing a new theme for the One Manga Forums so that can be made active. Just so many things I want to do but I’ve been too darn lazy to even start. Time to change that.
So some friends had a “Nightmare on <their> Street” gaming night for people to just drop in and play board games. The idea was to play Halloween or spooky themed games but since the husband isn’t much of a gamer, we decided to pull out something more generic and not as complicated to play. Which was fine for me, it’s been a while since I’ve done any tabletop gaming myself.
We started with a game called “King of Tokyo” which is a mix of king of the hill and last monster standing game. It was rather fun and I won 2/3 games, the last one with only 1 hp left. Then we moved on to “Ticket to Ride” which I’ve played before but the husband hasn’t. It’s one of those game where trying to explain the rules makes it sound so confusing but once you start playing, it makes total sense. The husband did pretty good for his first time playing, coming in second and finished two points ahead of me. I would have won if people hadn’t started blocking random routes meaning I couldn’t finish one of my tickets.
It was an enjoyable time and I had a lot of fun seeing some friends I haven’t in a long time. Plus the husband had a good time doing something that is usually a “me” thing.
Sundays should be a day of rest. Spent yesterday working in the yard getting it ready for winter. It’s a bit early but the hostas were already all wilted from cold so cutting those down made sense. From there raking up wet leaves from the mulch beds was next, and then the husband mowed the lawn. We still have a few trees with leaves, a lot actually, since those trees drop very late in the season, so he’ll have to mow at least once more. But it feels good to see how nice the yard looks.
The husband and I took a week off the gym for vacation and I can feel it. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with taking a vacation but getting back in the workouts is tough. Tonight was the bike and weights (tomorrow is swimming) and my legs ache; especially my knees. But it also feels good after the workout is over.
Finally took some time to edit the template I was using into something I liked better. I’m having trouble figuring out what accept color I was to use though. The orange is just not working, I don’t want another variation of blue, yellow/creams = no, and I think red is too close to the orange. Some variation of green perhaps? I shall have to try this out.
After straightening out the little tidbits of the template, my next step is to straighten out my categories and tags lists. I was an idiot and put way too many categories instead of utilizing the tag system properly, so that’s got to be switched up. Not to mention cleaning up a few old fanfic stories I’ve written and getting them posted finally, before I’m completely out of fandom.
