Family has been here this weekend, hence the lack of online presence. That should change again tomorrow, when they leave to return to St. Louis. Right now everyone else is at a botanical garden, something that I was not terribly interested after doing forced labor in our garden this afternoon (it wasn't so bad, really). And since I thought they were legitamtely asking whether I wanted to go, I said that I didn't and stayed behind to chop veggies for dinner.
I like my family a lot, in that they are pretty much completely different from me in every way and we still get along fine. That's not entirely true: my cousin David did manage to get me to see Star Wars last night, so I guess he is part geek. Not a big one, but some of one.
The really unfortunate thing is that I've wanted to do nothing this weekend but crawl into my basement hole and work on my superweapons. Not the best way to entertain family. I've been taking that time at night, because everyone turns in pretty early, and they know I sleep in (which is only because I usually don't go to bed before 2...), but it doesn't seem to be enough. Not sure how to fix the problem, I'll probably apologize to my cousin in private sometime. The superweapons will probably be ready on time, sometime in the early part of October.
*Shrug* I guess that's all I got. Later everyone.
