A Leisurely Weekend

Despite the snow (only a little over an inch), Dan and I went for a short walk around the neighborhood. That's the first walk I've taken since the 3-Day. It probably took us longer to bundle up than the amount of time we were outside!

Started playing Mass Effect this morning. Dan dug it out and has been playing for the past couple of days again, so I thought I'd give it a go. It's essentially KotOR without the Star Wars overlay. You have your ancient aliens rediscovered, a dude who's gone off and disappeared and now he's your guyses enemy, love interests and dark/light side choices in dialog.

So far, I don't really like the opening chest mini-game as the penalty is too harsh for failure. Watching Dan driving around in combat is pretty intense, too, as the vehicle is somewhat cumbersome and reacts in peculiar ways. It can't just back up, for example; it executes a three-point turn. Not good when the enemy is firing on your ass!

All the cats know about all the other cats at last, as Niea came downstairs and introduced herself to Melody this morning. Other than a broken snowman (we think it was Chotto trying to leap into a shelf), nothing terrible has happened. And it was pretty funny when Mittens was growling at Scooter and Niea came up to help him :) The three of them were at a total impasse for quite some time!

It supposed to be cold this whole week. I like cold, but not freezing. Hence, a fire again! And mulled cider! And soon, another go at Mass Effect. Bwahahahaha!
