It’s a grey Monday, and I am drinking the tea Mod R sent me for Christmas. It’s Fortnum & Mason Christmas Black tea and I am almost through the whole tin. I might have to find a US substitute because I can’t seem to order it in bulk from UK.
Admin things first: thank you for coming to the chat. Those of you who have read the bonus – thank you for not spoiling it for other people. Those who haven’t attended, do check the blog on Christmas. If you ordered print books, we just now got the bookplates so there maybe a slight delay in shipping. We will sign them and send them back today.
I woke up with a headache that’s refusing to go away. Kid 2 is reporting sore throat and isolating at home just in case. She might end up getting tested, although she has had COVID before and she is pretty sure it’s just a cold. Kid 1 is worried about her sister and stressed out. She just brought me a bottle of water because “you are dehydrated and all you drink is tea, mom.” I can no longer remember what I bought for whom. I’ve completely lost the plot regarding the presents. Like it’s not the information my brain is willing to retain right this second. I don’t know if there is equitable distribution of gifts or not.
This has not been a promising start to the week and I need to do some working, so I hope it will iron itself out.
I found this super cute game on Kickstarter. It’s like Stardew Valley but you run a restaurant and it’s right up my alley, but it’s not scheduled to go into alpha until Fall of next year. Next year. I really need a new game. I have built an enormous power plant in Satisfactory. 111 generators. So big. So much wow. Anybody playing anything cool?
