General Update

Things are going well in the Lisa-verse! Life is busy but good and generally on the up-and-up, though Derby season always makes me a little homesick for Louisville.

Last night, Nick and Nathan and Ross and I spent the evening playing Arkham Horror, which was my first time playing the game. I liked it quite a bit! I’m a sucker for cooperative board games anyway, but this one had a nice adventure element going on with it. It is very much like playing a one-shot session of D&D without the planning overhead that the DM has to do. Thinking about it in this way made it much easier to stomach the fact that it’s a 5 hour game.

Granted, we all were devoured in the end, but I’d happily devote another evening to it. Next time I play I’ll have a much better understanding of how things work, and make a more educated choice in my character.

Other updates!

1. Mr. Davis is doing really well – he loves the clicker training, goes out on walks with me, and is generally all about affection and snuggles. However, he has recently taken up the habit of climbing up the screen door when he’s riled up and playing, which is problematic. What I need is a long, narrow strip of carpet that I can mount on the wall for him to climb up. Any idea on where to procure such an item?

2. I’m going to Japan in like 2 weeks! SO EXCITED! I’ll be visiting Scott Coffrin, who I haven’t seen in years, so that will be fun. It’s a short, week-long trip, and I’ll be in Osaka for most of it, with a day trip to Kyoto somewhere in there. Can’t wait!

3. I have a boyfriend! That’s old news to most of you, but I know not everyone keeps up with facebook relationship status changes 🙂 We are going out on a fancy-pants date this very evening, in fact.

4. Work remains busy and fun and exciting and awesome.

That’s about it from me for now, I suppose.

  1. Glad things are going well for you. 🙂 You seem to have an exciting life, which is awesome. 🙂

    As for finding Mr. Davis a carpet strip, you could keep an eye out for people in the neighborhood who are renovating and ripping out their carpet, and cut off a piece of that, as long as it’s clean. Which is what i usually end up doing for making cat posts and such. Or, you could try Lowes, sometimes they have rolled up remnants with the rugs and carpets, or a Restore or thrift store of some kind. Carpet scraps are usually pretty easy to come across. 🙂 My cats also love those cardboard thingies you can get at pet stores, and those would be fairly easy to nail up to a wall, too.

    1. I ended up getting a piece through freecycle (<3 Freecycle so much!)

      It’s taken some training, but he will climb up it. Only on command, though, he still wants to run up the screen when he’s in riled-up play mode, so I just leave the glass door closed for now.

      I also use the bottom of the carpet for his favorite game: “Hide the thing under the thing.” Anything becomes 100 times more interesting if it is hidden under something else.
