What you did today

Recommended Posts

Where did you think the inspiration for "Pet Cemetary" came from? :lol:

Stephen King's hate of dogs.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Today was a lazy day. I spent the morning playing Empire Total War leading the armies of the Tsar through Armenia and Turkey. Then I fell asleep on the couch while watching football. I woke up after dark and could not gin up the motivation for anything more complex than a bowl of Raisin Bran for dinner.

 

I've only actually faced Turk organ guns once. Surprised the crap out of me, and unluckily for my AI opponent my fight response kicked in. The entire army bore down on the luckless battery. Only got off one more salvo.

 

Did very little gaming this weeked. Sleeping in the garden and reading, mostly.

 

Still coughing up green chunks. Hopefully won't last much beyond today.

Back to work after the relaxing weekend. Annoyingly stuck behind thick curtains to concentrate on the computer screen. I shall have to find some papers to read later and sneak out for a coffee in the sunshine. Weather should be back to a revolting English normal tomorrow!

I had 8 batteries of 4" mortars. I formed up the army beyond their artillery range and spent the the first 15 min of the engagement in counter battery fire, raining hard shot and carcass shot on their artillery until it broke and fled. Then sent in the infantry at an oblique angle to their front line and swept their flank with Hussars once the line was engaged. Old Boney would have been proud. Artillery is the queen of battle.

 

Anywho, I could talk Total War games all day, by far my favorite games ever.

Funnily enough, when I first heard that term was looking up on it and was amused to find "soldiers" upset at the use of a feminine term for their manly role :) Successfully tricked myself into being motivated for work today, not really sure how which is annoying as I can't use it in the future.

Well I got lost in some research and reading stuff rather then taking notes.. and now I'm being hit with that wave of exhaustion as the evening sets in.

I mean, sure I explored some interesting areas...but I feel as if I kind of failed getting actual work done..

Urf. Being a tad bizarre start to the morning.

Had a night of insomnia and emerged in the morning with a headache.. However, the limited sleep I did get was full of dreams about struggling with insomnia trying to sleep with a headache... so I have no idea which is remnants of the dreams and which was reality. Just that I'm shattered and have a headache.... ;)

If Hades were still here he'd tell you it's simple. The one that sucks more, that's reality.

Yeah have to vote on Thursday. Thankfully the NDP hasn't trucked out Layton's corpse. :lol:

Good ol' Sand, he always did look on the brighter side didn't he?

Did you have a way to test it Bokishi?

 

Disappointed with the iPhone 4S, not buying.

 

No it was just after viewing the presentation, I was expecting a radical new design like what they did with the iPad 2, but it still looks identical to the regular 4 with a few bumped up specs. And I'm sure the voice recognition will become available to the regular 4 eventually after a jailbreak

Past midnight....enjoying the sound of the rain while I read news articles. Then sleepy time.

Joy. One of those days where everyone in the family is annoying/irritating everyone else. So lots of snappishness passing back and forth and general ragh spilling around.

 

Ah well, trying not to get too stressed with it all. A fresh cup of tea to soothe the day along.

Obviously catching up on sleep last night. Slept through my alarm and got 12 hours.

 

Cough almost gone. No goop. Looks like I'm back on fighting form!

 

*coughs*

 

Bugger.

 

Nearly back. ;)
