I also got my marks back from that disaster of a Networking assignment...which turned out not to be so much of a disaster after all. 85 out of 100, including the 10 mark late penalty. Boo-yeah!
My mother is on her bus back to the city - she should be back in two or three days. I suppose this means I need to spend tomorrow cleaning up. I'm beginning to be a little concerned about the roommate situation - it's simply unfeasible and unaffordable for me to live here alone. I'll need to talk with her about it, and probably put some postings up over the break. Granted, I won't be in the city for most of it, but she will - she can handle it. She's likely to be selling a lot of our extra furniture as well, since there's no way it's going to be moved.
(ETA: She comes back Thursday afternoon.)
Hrm. I still expect it to work out. It just promises to be annoying.
In slightly less catastrophic news:
Last week's CS LAN party was a blast as usual. And we got sucked into playing Battlefield basically all day...again, as usual. It'd have been nice if I'd remembered to bring Dawn of War, but alas, it seems that I'm cursed to receive only the occasional multiplayer game of that particular gem.
On the brighter side of the gaming front, I had forgotten just how much fun Lords of Magic was. Picture a mix between Heroes of Might and Magic and, say, Lords of the Realm with a dash of Master of Magic, all dressed up in production values that were pretty damned good for its time (1998). It actually felt dramatic when I won the first game of it I've played in ages.
I also went to Tommy's this weekend, so he could show off his new pool table and Xbox 360. :D Andy did a much better job of summing it up than I did, so I'll just say that I think I liked PDZ a bit more than he did (mostly because this stuff isn't my job and I don't pay attention to stuff like the quality of the displacement mapping techniques) and that Need for Speed 4 is even better than he says it is. Even just to watch. Which is good, because I suck at it.
Also - Soul Calibur 3! *drool* Stupid PS2 exclusive.
I'm a tad behind on my shout-outs to new LJers. The ever-lovely Tara is posting from her Japanese exchange on megami_no_ushi, and the ever-bizarre Mike-t he former GM is posting from the cubicle trenches in bob13. I can't say either of them is new, I'm just lazy. :)
I am going to see Syriana this Saturday. Who wants to go with me? Putting out invites now so that we can decide on a time.
With the end of the term comes the end of the current incarnation of andur's D&D campaign. ("Wait, do we have to strip-search the druid?"). Since, as usual, nobody seems able to make the sessions during the week, I'm pondering whether to host or even DM a campaign at my house on weekends during the new year. Locals, how much interest would there be in that?
Okay, bed. Then, tomorrow, chores.
