Also: fuck you, nathan. Taking over Troy and Constantinople while I was off playing world police in Rome and then winning the game because nobody else could get to you. Bah. That's the mistake Greece always makes. Or, at least, I always make as Greece and other people have made as Greece. Overextension across the Mediterranean. Taking Cyrenae that early means you have to be willing to give it up soon, otherwise it's a money pit at a time you need to be developing. Too bellicose! Babylon winning with a tax strategy, I think that's a first. It makes sense, though, if you grab a couple extra cities. MARE NOSTRUM. I like how the Russian version is called "Tsivilizatsia", as the game was originally marketed as a "Civilization Lite", which it wasn't and which led to bad reviews from people expecting a "Civilization Lite", from what I understand on the message boards.
What is funny: people doing "cleanses" or "detoxes" and doing stupid things like "colonic irrigation". Goes well with yoga, I suppose.
I really should get this pile of crap done.
There is weight training to improve general long-term quality of life and there is weight training to be a competitive strength athlete, which may have long-term detriment to your quality of life. Or, more generally, being on the top of any competitive athletic endeavour is often at the expense of some long-term quality of life. My weight training is far more on the spectrum of "improving long-term quality of life" than the other thing.
Day two of moustachery is going well.
Softball game tonight. Have to make sure that my stuff is in order before it's time to play. I have to get some of this done. Am taking center field.
They noticed finally that the Coke machine was just passing coins along and put it out of order until it is repaired.
Okay, crap, this might bite me in the arse. I keep getting urgent little requests for stuff by Friday, and they're little things that take an hour or two, so I put them off and prioritize bigger things I'm working on, but I've been getting them steadily all week and just got another one. I think this one might have just tipped the balance, and it's also urgent. The ones from the beginning of the week I can't say, "Meh, fuck off and wait," because they gave me adequate time and I was just pissing around all week finishing other crap (and it's mildly important to them to have it now), but I can't say, "Meh, fuck off and wait," to this one because it's sort of my thing to be on top of this stuff and it's actually important to have it now. Oh well, whatevs. Live and learn, cadets. I'll try to get some sympathy out of it, maybe get a pie. People give me baked goods for being awesome sometimes. I'll just have to be awesome, which is a bit much to ask for on a Friday, but I can oblige just this once.
