Annemarie and I and our kids had a great weekend..! My apartment is just now recovering from the snowstorm of the week before last. We're going to do something fun this weekend too for her birthday.
Lately Annemarie and I have been watching Dexter, which is pretty good! We're almost through the first season (there's another season on streaming but after that we will have to rely on the library or something). A lot of the acting is telegraphed and just totally unrealistic, but it's been fun to watch. We have also been talking about going geocaching and riding bikes once it's less snowy. Columbia has a ton of bike trails. I don't actually own a bike yet and I don't know where I'd store it (maybe I'll have to move soon anyway), but I think it would be a good idea. 90% of the travel I do is local. I love Columbia. I could ride my bike up to Trader Joe's!
This weekend I also figured out (finally) how to really
play the space stage on Spore. I really just fumbled around before, but Quinn showed me some tricks (like I never quite knew how to use the cloud accumulator, I would just pay extra for a one time use of an atmosphere generator, and none of my colonies ever generated any wealth because I never placed any buildings in them). So one of my empires (my Shamanistic Felingi empire) is about to reach the last marker, and I just now kicked off my newest one, which is an aggressive military nation.
