Went over to dad's office, said hi to various people there. My sister dropped me off at my mom's house and sped off to work. Just hung around for a while, eventually contacted combinator and discovered that he was being dragged to the monona grove alumni swim meet were pete was evidently competing against his little brother or something. So I went and picked him up from that, having a chance to say hi to pete's parents on the way. Went to olive garden for dinner. Later met up at pete and martin's place for Puerto Rico with pete's friends james and karl. I guess I won, but it was a little disappointing. I admit that martin's usual "welp, looks like I'm totally dicked" schtick can be a little annoying, but pete and james were being asses about it for some reason. Somehow I cynically doubt pete would have made as big a fuss if martin was explicitly throwing the game to him. Although discussing kingmaking choices in the open is perhaps bad style. I don't know. It's just a fucking game.
And apart from the bickering, the game is a nice little set of mechanisms. Too bad I feel less and less like identifying myself as a gamer lately.
But, uh, yeah. Drove back home at 2am. Ugh. I hate driving so.
