My Somewhat Busy Day

We haven’t been able to drive because of car issues. This has been going on for over a week, and I have been depressed because I feel trapped in the house. I also haven’t been able to go Ingressing, which I find really fun.

I did get to Ingress a little today, because we had to take Alex up to Chicago to get him on the train. I think I’ll miss him more than I think I will, if that makes any sense. Next time he comes up, though, we don’t have to jump through the hoops of him being an Unaccompanied Minor, because that cuts off at 16. Which, eek, he’s going to be 16!!

I did get him to agree to play Pathfinder with us on Saturdays. As well he should… his dice were on FIRE Tuesday night! (Not literally, though.) He rolled 3 natural 20s in a row! We play on http://roll20.net, which works out well with everyone scattered like they are; we have two additional players, Cohesion and Demoman_Chaos, who don’t even live in the state, so Roll20 works beautifully. Everyone can see the map, it’s got built-in virtual dice, and we can communicate with webcams and mics like on Skype.

We met my dad for lunch, which was nice, since I haven’t seen him in months. Ben was very well-behaved, and even my dad noticed and commented. After that, we decided to stop at the chocolate factory that Mar used to work at and get some of their very good chocolate. The scent of cocoa is so thick in the air there that I was having trouble breathing! Then we came home and did some work. Alex just called and he got back ok, and I’m calling him tomorrow to help him with his character sheet, since we leveled up and the sheet wasn’t filled out correctly to begin with. Which reminds me that I need to do Ben’s, now that I have a website that calculates stats automatically for me.

We also signed up for the Indianapolis Anomaly, which is an Ingress event coming up next weekend. I really hope we get to go, because it will be a lot of fun! Plus it’d be nice if the Resistance actually was close to the Enlightened’s score. 😛

So that’s my boring day. 🙂
