What an exhausting week. Work pretty much sucked the life out of me, but you know what? I got to sleep until 8am today and it was magnificent.
We got a little bit of snow last night. Only a couple inches, but enough for me to take it pretty slow coming home. As I was putting along, I came across a car that had slid into the ditch. The person following behind me and I both stopped to make sure nobody was hurt. There was only one guy and he said he was fine. He was a foreign guy and had a pretty good accent that sounded African of some sort. He wanted us to help him push his car out of the ditch. I told him that wasn’t going to happen. There was no way we could push that car up an embankment like he slid down. And I wasn’t about to get trapped under a stranger’s car. I called 911 and they dispatched somebody. I told him it was best to wait in his car until they got here. As I was walking away, he climbed back into his car and hopelessly continued to try to drive out of the ditch. The car wasn’t there this morning when I headed back to work, so apparently he made it out somehow.
I had a lot of fun playing some Guild Wars 2 with Andrea and Mom tonight. Been a couple weeks since I’ve actually PLAYED. I log in from time to time and do some trading post stuff which is fun, but it’s nice to have a group of people to run with. We spent the entire night in just one map, Snowden Drifts, I think it was called. There is just so much darn stuff to do in that game.
I have been missing playing Guild Wars though. The original. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because the Canthan New Year holiday just started. Or maybe it was because I was listening to the soundtrack at work. But it was (and still is) such a great game. The crowd is starting to thin out considerably there though. But there’s still a small collective in all the old hubs. Just sad to think that that game will never be the same bustling place is once was with 70+ districts in Lion’s Arch during the holidays.
Glad the weekend is here. Looking forward to a more normal week next week.
