Here is interesting stuff that I have done or seen over the past two weeks:
I used to have dreams where my brother stole my girlfriend or such but found out that he was gay like two years ago so the dreams stopped, or at least they changed. My latest version has had him and his boyfriend beating me in a three legged race where I was forced to team up with some guy who hated me.
I had another dream which featured me watching a film which I then assumed the main character's idenity in. These dreams are always the best because in them I can both show how stupid popular culture is and do "weirder" stuff than I would normally do. This one featured me as an extremely wimpy guy (played by a coworkers husband!,) my girl friend and a cool biker guy going out west to solve a murder. Except we only make it to our first stop Chicago. While there I go grocery shopping, visit old professors and classmates, catch my girlfriend blatantly flirting with the biker and break up with her. Despondent I decide to give a half hearted attempt at solving the murder myself but a hired thug was about to beat me up/kill me before I woke up. Also I had to walk through the shitty part of town late at night and it was like a parody of gritty urban documentaries.
A coworker's wife was hired on. He looks a bit girly so I was totally shocked when she showed up looking very manly. I loved it!
I pointed out that a friend's name, when abrieviated the right way, sounds like a porn star name.
I had a horrible shit in a McDonalds and the flush wasn't good enough. It was a scanner toilet and I just could not get it to flush again, there was a line so I walked out appologizing to the guy behind me. I tried to hustle my dad out of the store so I wouldn't have to look the guy in the eye when he came out but the food wasn't done in time. Thankfully I got out of there but saw him walking out of the store as I was driving off. I am tempted to leave that McD's negative feedback on their website over it.
Playing an Ironman Crusader Kings II game right now as Hungary/Carpathia. It started weird with William the Bastard (Conquerer) failing to conquer England but then usurping the French throne instead. Aquitaine broke away and is currently one of only four surviving count or higher level opponents. The Danish also tried and failed to conquer England. Of the main houses of Europe only the Jimenas and whoever the main Swedish house was actually amounted to anything. Aquitaine, HRE, the Ilkhanate and the eastern Indian Empire are the only current survivors and only the Ilkhanite and HRE should pose any difficulty. Ilkhanite especially since they went Christian, there's no way to naturally usurp their Empire so I have to just assassinate, assassinate, assassinate and hope that I kill enough of them to get it. Granted I have like 150 years left... For HRE its the same deal but eventually I'll get a critical mass of territory and usurp their title, at which point I can just conquer the individual dutchies.
