I wasn't using that privacy anyway...

So my sister's apartment search has apparently come to a very successful end. Really, it does sound like a good place - almost too good to be true, though I get the impression her landlady-to-be gave a discount because she's partial to St. John's students (said school being her alma mater and former employer.)

Consequently, I now know their plans for the remainder of the summer. For values of "know" equal to "am willing to assume, lacking any reason to immediately disbelieve". Both of them are coming back here on the 13th of July. Mom will be staying for between 7 and 10 days, long enough to see her oncologist for a checkup, and confirm that I'm not starving myself to death. Ral, on the other hand, will be staying until the 22nd of August, when she goes back to New York for her first days of college.

Cramming three people into a space meant for one is likely to be extremely entertaining. For you, that is. Hopefully I'm working by then, or there may be casualties. At least Mom will only be here a week or so. While it will be nice to see them again, it's guilt-inducingly obvious that I miss them vastly less than they miss me. Thankfully, they're not trying to cut my heart open over that - or at least they're being more subtle about their incisions. Perhaps there is hope? Or perhaps they simply don't want anything from me yet.

Also, courtesy of senji, this nostalgia-inducing quiz:

Warrior, general, poet and song writer. How can we truly describe this man of "Green eyes, black hair, dressed in black and silver," wearing a silver rose as his symbol and the famous sword Grayswandir? He fathered Merlin and drew his own version of the Pattern when he thought the original was destroyed. At the end of The Courts of Chaos by Roger Zelazny, Corwin says of himself, "And what about the man dress in black and silver with a silver rose upon him? He would like to think that he has learned something of trust, that he has washed his eyes in some clear spring, that he has polished an ideal or two. Never mind. He may still be only a smart-mouth meddler, skilled mainly in the minor art of survival, blind as ever the dungeons knew him to a finer shade of irony. Never mind, let it go, let it be. I may never be pleased with him."

Which Amberite are you?
this quiz was made by Mysti

I should really try and find the Amber books for a reread.

Just think, what it's going to be like when you have gaming sessions at your place over the summer, and there's all those extra people in the house.

Or, would you like to use my place (which, you have to admit, has better bus access for the late Saturday evenings)?

Who's now going back into the insane marathon game in a mod of CivIV (Turn 700 of 6000), called Throughout the ages. Lets put it this way, I'm currently researching my 4th tech, and I killed my first game after 900 turns of fighting that damned single Barbarian steel axe (30 strength) with only warriours (1 str) and then later chariots (5 str). When I finally got bronze working, I couldn't buyld axemen or swordsmen as I only discovered tin, no copper. :(

Re: JOY!
Our bi-weekly schedule should end up bracketing the days that Mom will be here, and my sister has enough of a social life to catch up on that she should be largely out of our way on Saturdays. I don't anticipate a need to change venue.
