Old Spice Rewards Weekend

General Ramblings comments edit

This weekend I proved conclusively that I am a true Gamerpoint Whore by completing the Old Spice Experience Challenge, increasing my Gamerscore by 1500 in about a week. Oh, hell yes. I plowed through King Kong most of last week and finished Gun this weekend. Good times.

Jenn was at my cousin’s wedding shower all day Saturday and ended up staying over at my aunt’s house (the shower was three hours away and my mom didn’t feel like making the trip up and back the same day, so they stayed over), returning Sunday afternoon. That left me home alone. Hmmmm.

Saturday my dad and I had planned on getting our Xbox on over the network but his router wasn’t configured to forward the right ports or something so while we were able to connect to other people, we weren’t able to connect to each other. I guess that’s the behavior you see when the router’s giving you grief. Instead, we ended up watching some movies and hanging out, which was fun. It’s always good to hang with Dad.

Sunday I cleaned up around the house a bit and when Jenn got home we went out for some Indian food. Can’t get enough of that butter chicken.

Monday Jenn and I trekked around town, getting the usual chores done and gathering supplies to make a cat scratching post because the new cat could legitimately be considered a Weapon of Mass Destruction. We figure by making the thing we’ll get exactly what we’re looking for and save between $10 and $20 at least. Cat furniture is expensive.

We also took a look at some of the projects we’ll be doing this spring that we’ll be putting off. I’m generally in charge of indoor repairs and projects while Jenn is on external projects.

I know we’ve got some crown molding to put up and the caulking around some of the windows needs to be replaced, so I’ll be in charge of those efforts. We might also need to paint the master bathroom since the walls in there are looking a little drab from moisture and so on. I’ll probably look at doing some of the caulking over the course of the next few weeks and the rest closer to spring.

Jenn’s agreed to deal with getting a new layer of barkdust put in (including organizing any prep work that needs to be done) and dealing with, once and for all, this crappy spot in our backyard that gets really soggy (plans and execution). It’s nice to have someone you can count on to get everything done without procrastinating and without forgetting the details. Jenn rocks that way. That stuff will commence in the April/May timeframe.
