The original title of this post was, “Time to Kill,” but I realized I was in a crowded train station and perhaps plastering that on my computer screen was asking for the wrong sorts of questions. I’m sitting in Union Station, a full 2.5 hours before my train was supposed to depart and it’s already been delayed about 45 minutes. That is a bad sign.
Christmas. Enjoyed it. That’s all I really want to say on the topic.
See the Light is almost ready, and if I weren’t so damn tired I’d be working on it right now. There’s a bug list of about 14 items, none of which should take more than an hour. Provided I’m not a lazy schmuck the next few days, it should be ready for review by the time Apple turns iTunes Connect back on Wednesday. Then comes step (3): Profit.
I finished my first full game of Civilization yesterday with Evan and Dee. I don’t have the resources to do a comprehensive review at present (pictures and such), but here are some general impressions: the game is a little tricky to teach - lots of moving parts and plenty of little rules. It’s very long, taking us upward of 5 hours for the first playthrough. It’s also very fun; everyone enjoyed it, and the end turned into a vicious race between Evan, who was attempting victory by expanding the culture of his empire, and me, who was crushing opponents with military might. I won by a narrow margin. Evan was one space away from victory, but his dedication to the arts left his capital defenseless as my superpowered army trampled through.
Watched The Other Guys. I’m always a fan of a good Will Farrel movie. This one is eccentric but still more grounded than Anchorman, and it’s fun. Speaking of movies, Union Station has an FYE and I’ve got a pocket full of dolla bills [y'all], so I might have to go pick something up to entertain me for these endless hours. Now if only Union Station had power outlets.
Union Station music is horrid.
