Macbeth the Usurper

Today

I took the car to the garage today. I gave them a longish list of short things to do. In addition to checking on post-coolant-loss issues, some routine stuff.

Hopefully the car gets a good bill of health and we can drive it to Conn. this weekend. I will photograph the Quest game and she will NPC/assist-GM.

Jen has learned to use a samovar (?sp) for this game. (This is a charcoal powered tea-making apparatus from Russia and other places east.) I had to do a few repairs with a blowtorch and plumming solder. Bwaa-ha-ha-ha. She has learned to play with fire to make strong Russian tea. Bwa-ha-ha.

I should really pick up a monopod for the game. Some of the photography on Friday will be in dimmer light. And I should really pick up a tripod. Same reason. Monopods are just easier to carry about as you walk.

The cat has fleas. He was scratching constantly at 1am this morning. Grrrrrrr. Jen picked up some anti-flea stuff from the vet just in time. Hopefullly I applied it correctly. As the cat squirmed when I applied the liquid, I assume that it hit his skin successfully.

The front coming through has given me another headache. Together with allowing myself to get dehyrated, bad stuff.

Car

The mechanic said that the car checked out okay. I'll need a radiator ($250) to fix the small plastsic radiator part that's broken. Not cheap, but only 1/2 a car payment to fix. Cheap!

I should also get rotated tires and new oil today. The car should be ok for tomorrow's drive.
