The party itself was fun, though I am surprised I managed to stay until 12:30 given how badly I was dragging all day. I got in a round of Space Munchkin (won!), Settlers of Catan (won!) and Zombies (gave up after 2 1/2 hours - mixing in all of the expansions made it incredibly slow).
Highlight of the day: either being at the party and feeling very happy about all of the nice people I know here, or talking to wechsler on the phone. The feeling was the same both times, I think - there's a lot of people I feel lucky to know.
Lowlight of the day: driving to fucking Kent to pick up a package from FedEx that they would NOT re-send to my work address (I had to sign for it), only to find the woman at the call center had given me the wrong hours and the office was closed. I can't possibly get back there during the week, so I'm going to have to pay to have the damn thing reshipped to me at my office. I could scream at how pathetic their customer service is. I mean, it would be easier for me to get that damned package if someone had just driven through Seattle on I-5 and thrown it out the window of their car.
We got so little done today that the Tacoma art museum no longer seems reasonable, so we're going to basically work on the house during the day, though I plan to take a little detour to do some shopping at the Talbots Outlet in Lynnwood (big sale this weekend, and my bonus check is burning a hole in my pocket). I have a little work to do for work, too - I can't believe I didn't get it done before I left on Friday. And I know I've got some things to do I've forgotten about. Oh well, I'm sure it will come to me when it's either impossible for me to do it or too late. I'll say one thing ... this does feel like a pretty good weekend overall.
Review of play tomorrow. See you then.
