Hangin' with the birthday girl

Played hooky from work yesterday (ok, basically used a vacation day for once but still! A rebel! Totally!) and spent it with veritasema for her birthday (sorry I missed yours bluemeanybeany! We had a chill day of eating breakfast at the bagel shop, cruising around Ikea and buying mostly stuff for the kitties and then hanging out eating dumplings and drinking bubble tea and playing video games. Twas fun.

I couldn't get to sleep last night because Emily talked about what she'd like to do with the house once her parents pass away. Since I'm a sucker for makeover shows and even when I was a kid, I thought about ways to make my parents house more functional, I kept pondering ideas of what she could do. It's fun to think about such things but when you need to get to work the next day *yawn* it's not smart to get it in your head for a stretch. Fortunately today won't be a full day at work because since it's the last day before the University closes for the holiday, we'll all probably leave early around 2 or so. But these days are always great because hardly anyone will be here.

lol I hooked up my XBox Kinect Star Wars edition - this one

that Emily got me several years ago. I don't really have enough room to use the Kinect part with all the cat stuff in the living room but it is good for playing stuff like Lego Star Wars which is what was on the agenda yesterday.

It was fun so I'm pondering playing it a little more myself. I rather strategy games rather than ones where you have to quickly jump and run and stuff, though.

The Lego ones aren't too stressful but on ones where you have to react quickly, it actually stresses me out to have to be really precise.

We will have to get a second controller, though since we only have one.
