Surprisingly I managed to wake up nice and early, although I was a bit of a sleepy head. I pootled off into town to get some shopping and since it was a lovely sunny day, left my jacket behind. Which of course meant I'd left my phone behind too. Oops. As expected, I discovered a call from cryx asking me to hurry on 'round with some diet redbull clone, which I duly did.
In honour of the sunny weather, cryx was dressed up all summery, showing off her lovely legs with a moderately short skirt and wearing a nice top. She'd also cooked up lots of yummy looking food for the trip too, and soon we were winging our merry way to Brum.
It was a lovely day, spoilt only by my complete inability to keep my eyes open for any extended period of time. Still managed to have some interesting/cool conversation though, so it wasn't a complete waste and there were a few brief moments when I got to admire the scenary - it was very sunny outside.
Soon got to Brum though only to discover that there was some kind of celebration - Guiness day or something - which had a parade causing all kinds of traffic problems. It didn't cause too many problems because my wonderful sat-nav gadget soon had us winging our way in the right direction with a little help from cryx's memory. Where we did get stuck was parking. We ended up waiting ages and nabbed the first spot that became empty. Unfortunately it was a stealth disabled spot and when we came back later there was a parking ticket on the car.
Both games were very subdued and plot-lite. Mage I spent most of chatting with people, although I did help break a few people by helping out with a ritual or two. C/A I did a lot more chatting and even potentially gained some new contacts for doing some "business". Best not tell Cinammon though cos she'll string me up if she found out *grins*.
The journey home was much like the journey there, except it was dark and I spent time oggling the shiny things and the moon instead. Briefly interrupted by a stop at a service station to consume some of the yummy potatoe and baby sweetcorn (yuck) thing and a visit to the little RPGers room.
