The womenfolk gone, the upstairs AC off to save power, I will be sleeping on the couch, using the computer and doing various other stuff unsupervised for most of the day, wearing what is currently the contents of the washer, the drier, the hamper and my body (with all unnecessary clothes left to simmer upstairs) and eating whatever's around.
Sadly, I'm still sick. I went to the doctor even. Apparently it's worse than expected, I guess. I dunno, it's "something viral," for which she prescribed huge antibiotics (despite viruses not being "biotic") and a tiny foul-tasting pill for my sinuses. Medicine, in my illness? It's more likely than you think.
Anyway, not sure when this'll let up. Besides that, I have Summer Camp on the 23rd, at which I will be the acting SUPREME OVERLORD of my troop, which is a big deal. And that's only one of the reasons why I won't be able to see Caravan Palace on the 23rd... but that's not a big deal in the slightest. Also I'm going to visit the womenfolk at some point in the future, but I'm not sure when.
Excuses excuses, I know. But I'll bring a box of mechanical pencils and a drawing pad to Summer Camp to while away the off hours with pages of Amalgam, so if all else fails that should work out. Summer Camp is, after all, mindnumbingly boring.
But why do the queens stay in their castles on Prospit and Derse while the kings are on the battlefield in Skaia? Chess is the other way around, sillies.
