Tired… Long Day

First and foremost: I really wish this rain cell would leave LA. Right now, we need to call out some animal control trucks, for its raining cats, dogs, and elephants out there. At least something’s going thud, thud, thud on our roof. Excuse me: It sounds like 400 elephants are on our neighbor’s roofs shooting water out their trunks on our roof. Bleah.

I didn’t sleep well last night. S&F was having some trouble getting to sleep. She didn’t get to sleep until 1:30 AM, which meant I didn’t get to sleep until 2:00 AM. I got up at 6:30 AM. A father’s life…

It’s been a long day, on top of the rain. We had our dim sum run this morning, which was really fun. Lots and lots of goodies.

We came back and did an evening of gaming, with friends, neighbors, and some new folks like darkfuzzyheart. We played a lot of games: Ticket To Ride, Streetcar, 10 Days in the USA, 10 Days in Africa, Munchkin, Tigris & Euphrates, Fluxx, and more. We discovered yet another coincidence in the universe: darkfuzzyheart, who is a friend of ellipticcurve, turns out to be the grandson of someone of my father, grandpa_a, used to work for (and who was a good friend of his). The world is indeed small.

Well, I think I’m going to go shut this puppy down before the creek rises, and go listen to the pouring on the roof. Rain, rain, go away, and all that jazz.
