Last night I bailed on working in the studio for Starcraft 2 for a couple of reasons. The first was that we shipped something this week so it feels good to take a breath. The other was Stacky. More on that in a minute. But first, SC2 stuff.
I suck at this game. A lot. But it has pretty pictures and I can blow shit up. It's also a lot of fun. Whenever I can do something poorly and still have fun, I hold onto it. So that's a definite thing it its favor. The patch-a-day thing is old already, but the game hasn't been out for more than 10 minutes so I have no real complaints there. What did piss me off was that I opted for the digital version. I didn't want to go to the store (and couldn't) so I pulled it down. After an hour of downloading, it was nowhere near done. Worse than that, the d/l was hitting 70k max. WTF? OH! I see! You tricky fuckers added me to a P2P network and I've got 70 coming and 80 going. Ah. How 'bout you go fuck yourselves! I paid money for this, so you'll give me your undivided attention while I receive your product, kay? And I see that thing where the status went from green to yellow when I disabled P2P. Fuck you. You can't scare me. Wanna sell without overhead? Can't be done. Suck it up and give me the 300+ down that I deserve. Thanks.
But still a good game! And I need a little something to do from time to time. So there ya go.
Stacky got an attack of vertigo last night and fell. This is not cool. I'm not sure what we'll do if she gets to the point where this is a regular thing. The Dude is a busy guy and needs a lot of attention. It's a lot of work for her and I don't have a plan. We need one. This is problematic. Mostly I'm spending my time worrying about her and hoping that this sticks. Sigh.
At least it's the weekend and I can hang with The Dude and give mommy a much needed rest. Not sure what we'll do, but I will stick to the nightly cycling. I feel better and sleep better if I drag the trailer around the block a few times. So we'll keep that up.
Need to find a time to burn some vacation. Really want to take a trip for some good camping. I need to check with my brother and see if he wants to come down for a bit. That'd be fun AND give Stacky a break. But I don't really want to camp without her. I really don't like being away from her in general. Taking off without her would suck. But it would be good for the dude. And me. And my brother. We'll see. Plenty of time to think about it. Well, end of August anyway.
The Dude's birthday is soon. I'm still debating a gift. What do you get for a kid his age that doesn't need or want anything? Good question.
I dunno. Not much to see here. But I'm stressed out and it feels good to type when I'm stressed. So there you go. Now let's get to the weekend.
