I had lunch yesterday with my father's widow, Shelley. We went to the Fall's Terrace, and watched the Des Chute River pound down the falls - a swollen, fast-moving river of an unpleasant yellowy-brown beaten into whitewater. I overdid it a bit, I think - or else I'm just plain sick today. Shelley had offered to bring more of my father's things, but I said I couldn't deal with objects anymore. She brought them anyway - I got a bit exercised at that which, as I tried to explain, was because I think about it all the time - who SHOULD these things go to? She said she would send them to Australia which prompted me to exclaim, "Steven isn't even RELATED to him." I just don't have that sort of ordinary family that most people seem to have. We are spread out all over the globe and my family has strange truncated lines and false leads.
Today just feel HORRIBLE.
Enjah finally came back - yay! She was back in very unstable way yesterday, as her modem kept disconnecting her. Turned out the new battery backup was hooked up in the wrong spot for the modem, so once that was sorted it became fine once more. We did the preliminary judging for Nightshade, and talked to Jensel a bit. She's been working as a model in SL, and has some kind of a game show in the works at The Shelter.
Doc B and I spent a bit of time talking about the Combat Cards, which are coming along. I think it's a great idea, and I'm trying to (as a conscious thing) do the cards exactly as he would like them as it's his baby. He told me I can tell him to shut up - which made me laugh, "DOC BEHIND YOU - A SNAKE!" He asked for a T shirt with the logo, so I made that. I wasn't terribly productive on account of feeling so punk.
Racer came over when I had wandered off to eat dinner forgetting I was logged in. I came into the room to see him, which was funny. He gave me a rope to climb up, then TPed me to his place in Maroon, which is a carrot patch with, down the rabbit hole, a house with the huge carrots sticking from the ceiling like orange stalactites. He's making a cartoon of the Snail Dude and himself in a love triangle with Neon, and showed me some bits that he's worked up quite wonderfully. Then I ran off as I was super-pooped.
