The weekend, in bullet points.

  • Bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner - on sale at half price due to being a floor model of an unfashionable color.
  • Downloaded Dyson instruction manual and purchased missing accessories at the Dyson website.
  • Found a copy of 1861: Railways of the Russian Empire in stock at Boards & Bits, decided to sleep on it.
  • Upon waking, discovered that the copy had sold out. Checked all the major stores online again, did some Google searching, didn't find it available for sale in US dollars anywhere. Can buy it in Canadian dollars, pounds, or Euros, all of which turn out to be hella-expensive.
  • Called my friendly local game store, shot the breeze with the owner, who is cool. His major distributor is out, but he will check his minor distributors and get back to me.
  • Endured days 1,2, and 3 of Cori entering binky-withdrawal.
  • Watched 4 episodes of Dora the Explorer, barely survived.
  • Watched Futurama "Bender's Big Score," which Lee and I enjoyed quite a bit.
  • Played some Wizardry 7: Crusaders of the Dark Savant, a fairly old computer game that took some tweaking to run on XP.
  • Baked some chocolate whole-wheat brownies, which turned out great.
