It's all sunny again, only it's colder than a witch's tit outside
Last night was a nice night, in the vein of the version of "quiet nights at home" I was expecting to have more frequently once I got here. came over after dinner and I made the the three of us pork chops (go go Konriko), kale with bacon and garlic, and macaroni and cheese. Well, actually, shadowdaddy made the mac and cheese, which was kind of a stealth attack as I wanted it from scratch and he thought he could do it from out of the box. Sometimes cheese sauce just doesn't work right, and it's really irritating because you've got a big expensive pile of cheese and cream in lumps in a pan, and that's what's sitting next to our stove right now. Yay for Kraft. (On the other hand, he thought he could do it by adding milk and butter to some fresh-cooked macaroni and then stirring in some grated cheese, so perhaps a variety of lessons were learned last night.)
Afterwards we played Tigris and Euphrates, and my usual tactics of Raise Havoc and Steal Good Spots next to Temples paid off in with a win last night and in my utterly irritating shadowdaddy and wechsler. At one point I was getting ready to unite two kingdoms into one, board-spanning monster that I would utterly dominate, and I caught myself singing Darth Vader's theme. Then I got the giggles. It was fun, but lasted rather longer than we wanted.
I've fiddled around enough and it's time to get to work. Today is the Farmers' Market in Hammersmith, and I want shadowdaddy to go with me. Better wake him up before I leave and let him know.
