Eve's eve

It's becoming harder and harder for me to make entries on this thing. Just too many things bubbling up and it's hard to find the will to go and jot it down. Add to it the fact that I usually only have a limited window (usually after pill popping) when it's not an unpleasant experience and it just makes things a bit more sketchy.

Yesterday I went to the gameday at the Panera despite feeling incredibly wretched during most of the day. I was up half the night and popping codeines like they were candy. Things ended up stabilizing by the time I got to the game day which is just as well. I'm just a little disturbed by the continuing escalation of what I need to maintain some degree of pain management. It's not been a fun time. I sometimes think that I should make a daily notation of pill popping and then create a long term graph of the thing just to quantify the changes.

The game day itself was okay. I finally got around to playing a game of Santiago where I then proceeded to get my ass handed to me in a pretty decisive manner. For all that I love the game, I just can't seem to win at it. After that it was a game of Goa where I pulled out what I felt was a pretty impressive comeback to finish second. I finished the game with only 5 freaking plantations total and spent around 75% of the time going second. It's a miracle I didn't just end up grinding to a halt.

I'm pretty certain that I will be popping up to Matt and Joyce's place for Christmas. I got a headcount update from Joyce at the gameday and passed the info along so the resturant can whip something up. It's a potluck affair and there's no way I'm actually going to do any cooking. I'm pretty sure no one would want to consume the results even if I were inclined to do it myself. Instead I figure I'll end up hauling along a vat of some sort of fried rice or similar item.

Oh, and I got two christmas gifts in the mail from jirel and vala_amaris. I took some pictures but haven't uploaded them to the computer yet. I'll try to get around to it sometime tommorrow. God knows that they deserve their own entry.
