Weekend Ahoy

So we had a weekend.

The bonus material for Doctor Who did not come in. Instead, we watched "Coco Before Chanel", a bio-pic and costume drama about Coco Chanel. It's a costume drama because the protagonist becomes a fashion designer. Clothing is very important in the film. I found the film entertaining, and I found the beautiful Audrey Tautou as engaging as ever.

My sister paid for photos of herself, and since she had the photographer, invited us out to photos, too. The photographer had mighty nice lenses. (50mm and 85mm primes, to be exact.) I got grumpy most of the way through.

Curse you pirates that invented Daylight Savings Time. I'll see you hang yet.

Run a Gamma World game on Sunday. Had to pull a few punches in the boss battle because they were heading for a TPK. (Recall, I have sub-optimizers. If they can make something sub-optimal, they will.)

I finally did get Fallout 3 to run under Linux. It had issues, but was mostly playable. Now that I've accomplished that, I can move onto my next challenge.

I'm shopping for the next free MMO. I tried Battlestar Galactica Online. I do not find it to may taste. My hands will never forgive me for flying spacecraft with the WASD keys. That's a short flight to a repetitive strain injury.

I might go back to LotRO for a while, but I'm not really feeling the love for button-bar RPG's right now. I may play one, but odds are, I'll play a different one. I've downloaded Champions Online and I might give that one a tour.
