Not that I found the answer today or anything, but still. I've stuck with this a lot longer than almost anything else in my entire life - even half of my "friendships" pooped out after about a month.
So today, I had a great breakfast - 2 slices of bacon, a fried egg (seasoned with tumeric and dalmation sage), bread with jam, and coffee sweetened with Irish Cream. After I spent some time reading, watching Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, and browsing a bit to see if I could find a good game to give Jeremy for a Yuletide gift.
Instead, I found an MMO called "The Secret World" - and I want us to get it to play together asap!
We're both gamers, and have enjoyed playing MMO's and LAN-ing together for the past two years or so (our entire relationship), and WoW has really started to pall for the both of us. Part of that has to do with the amount of choice and complexity that went out of the game after the last expansion, but we both need a breath of fresh air (so to speak), and so a next-gen MMO is looking good.
I decided to start of a trial for one of FunCom's other games (Age of Conan), and went to make lunch while it downloaded/updated/installed. All I can really say about my lunch is this:
And it's not ramen - it's rice noodles, homemade broth (with a bit of help from beef bullion), and the meat and veggies leftover from last nights dinner. And of course, buttered bread and milk. It took me about an hour to eat, while watching another ep of Anthony Bourdain.
After that I read some more, organized my jewelry boxes, and played Conan pretty much until my fiance got home. Then I watched some Star Trek with him, and realized when it was done that it was too late to make the butternut squash risotto that I had planned if we wanted to have dinner at a decent hour. I decided I wanted a sandwich, he decided he wanted chicken soup (he's gotten sick), so I walked down to the grocery store and got him soup and me some chips to go with my sandwich.
That sandwich was a manly man's sandwich - partly because I cut the bread too thick, along with everything else. It was a good thing I had some things other than water to help wash it down with, else I would have never been able to eat it (I have trouble swallowing at the best of times).
And then, Jeremy made me ridiculously happy. I suggested to him that since we were bored pveing in WoW, we go to another server and make a pvp team to see if changing things up a bit would help us out. Let's just say that hunter/rogue teams are bamf.
That was my day. I hope to have another just like it tomorrow - only with my new mp3 player and a bit more exercise.
