Well, I had an unexpectedly long weekend. Friday I stayed home sick, and then Monday got snowed in until the afternoon.
The sick part sort of stunk a lot (I'm still not really recovered), but other than that, fun weekend. Friday I sat around like a lump, drank a lot of tea, and watched some TV. And napped in between coughing/sneezing fits.
worked an extra day, so I once again made with the sitting around. Did manage to get out of the house long enough to buy some fabric and trim for a coat for Sarrciano. Sat afternoon, we drove down to thedeviantangel
's place to hang out with her and silway
. She cooked lasagna for us (yum) and we all talked a ton about larping, switching between games every 10 minutes or so. Was a ton of fun, and we stayed way later than I'd intended, but we kept starting new interesting conversations that we didn't want to cut short.
Sunday, failed to get to the store to buy some cough medicine, but did get a good start on the coat while watching a LotR marathon. Ran out of black thread for the serger, though, which was sad. Even sadder was how many times I messed up one
of the sleeves. After the second time I fucked it up and had to rip out not only the stitching but the serged edges too, I decided to put it down for the night. That didn't stop me from glaring at it and smacking it every time I caught a glimpse of it as I walked by, though. Because I'm totally rational like that. It was clearly the outfit's fault that I'm an idiot.
Monday, my work had a delayed opening, which was cool, except the roads near my house weren't really drivable until after noon, so I just took the day off. Managed to finish the coat, including the trim, and I'm reasonably satisfied with how it came out. We also did manage to get to the store for cold medicine, which is helping to defeat the stupid cold, and some food items. Failed to find something to hang the picture that we got for Christmas, but that's ok, because yesterday sarrciano
went to Home Depot and got something to hang it with, so now we have a painting hanging on our wall. Almost like a real house. Looks very nice. :)
Yesterday was crazy at work, what with me needing to catch up on two days of work and it being the beginning of the month and having meetings all day. It was crazy, but productive. And tonight is Madrigal meeting. Yay.
