Once I arrived home on Friday eve, I didn’t leave again until Sunday afternoon and only for a short while to take Leo for a walk and go do a bit of shopping for next week’s meals. Leo, the bf and I launched into full-on lounge mode Friday night, watching a movie called Goats and an episode or two of Eureka. Saturday was LOTRO for a good chunk of the day, after waking at 11am and Sunday was another late start and some more Eureka. We got nothing done and it was glorious…with the exception of advancing 2 levels in LOTRO!
The thing about LOTRO…I love this game and the bf mostly plays it because I want him to. He enjoys backing his horse into my character and jumping onto things he shouldn’t (like tents and fire pits) while I strategize, but mostly I believe he plays just to make me happy. We play dwarven brothers from the grey mountains, which maybe is weird as we are dating and all. We accentuate the brothers aspect by shouting BROTHERS as often as we can and wearing similar clothing. We currently have matching hats and shoes.
Jan 5 – We are just venturing into the Lone-Lands and I am about to go up to 24th level. Oh yeah.
Jan 6- All manner of liquids on a quiet afternoon. Nail polish, dog eye medicine and water in the Star Trek glass.
I have done several photo-a-day-for-a-month projects before, but never really had any success during the month of January. I suspect the cold and the short days might have more than a little to do with it, but hey, that is going to be part of the story of my Project 365.
So, things are sliding kinda goth. I could blame the weather and having to return to work after nearly 2 weeks off, but the truth is that I am currently obsessed with the Tinto 1884 Lens and D-Type plate film.
Jan 2 – Sleepy pug.
Jan 3 – Waiting for my tall soy latte at Starbucks. I have recently kicked the caffeine habit, but was bored at work so I thought this would help. It did.
Jan 4 – It was a hat and mitten-free 32 degrees when I took this shot. I took a short drive over lunch with the windows cracked, enjoying the look of melting snow and the smell of fresh air.
For, like, ever I had no idea what NYE meant. I suspected it had something to do with New York, possibly something like the stock exchange but not, and then allowed myself to be distracted and never do any knowledge-y follow up (which is totally a word). Now that I know what it is, I try to use it whenever I can, which is sadly only about a week a year, if that.
My 2012 NYE was one of the more low-key NYEs I have experienced and this is not bad. My bf and I had considered a NYE party, but we ended up playing LOTRO until 11 and then watched a movie about juicing. We are hardcore party people.
Today has been a day of lounging and mentally preparing to go back to work after a glorious week and a half off. I have also been stretching my crochet muscle and am hoping to rock a few projects. It’s been over a year since I held the crochet hook in my hand and things are not progressing as I would like, but I am patient. We will see.
