Then I came home and amused myself playing Spore, which I hadn't touched in months. Finally got to the space level, which is almost exactly like a very old game called Frontier, except with really good graphics and slightly less fiddly trading.
Next weekend, HeroesCon! I am sorta kinda ready, although I need zip ties and a new wheely-cart thing.
Also, in the last forty-eight hours, my cantaloupe plants decided to take over the WORLD. The roma tomato is bad enough--it's decided that it's a shrub--but the cantaloupe went from crawling along the veggie bed to making a break for the yard. I fear it.
