Today Was a Good Day

Tags: , , , , ,
I goofed off in the morning - worked on the Lego Star Destroyer I'm currently building, played a solo game of Legendary: The Marvel Deck Building Game, and played around on the internet.

I talked to my family on the phone for a while. We were partly discussing the mystery scratches that have appeared on the roof of my car, so that parts a bummer as they'll probably be expensive to get fixed, but still always good to chat with the family.

I worked on my dissertation for a few hours, reading some articles I've had on the "you need to get to these eventually" pile for far too long, one of which solved a problem I've been wrestling with for a couple weeks in the section I'm currently writing so that made me VERY HAPPY.

I got my laundry done while doing various of the above and I ran out and got groceries for the next few days somewhere in there, too.

This evening I met up with a friend at a local small movie theater to see a showing of Singin' in the Rain on the big screen.

So, yeah. Productive, relaxing, and fun all in one day. Best Sunday in a while in many ways. I need more of these.

Sounds great. Is that the big star destroyer? We had a bit of trouble persuading that one to support it's own weight!

Oops. I wasn't paying enough attention to what I was typing. Should have said Death Star, not Star Destroyer. I do have the classic huge Star Destroyer (this one) at my folks' house. I put it together ages ago but I sort of remember... maybe something about the outsides being panels held on by magnets or something that were tough to get to align and stay? My memory is fuzzy. I built Death Star II much more recently, and it was a pain because it was always unbalanced and wanted to tip over until you got everything in place. So far I'm not having any problems with the current Death Star.
