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.
