Today was a day of volunteering followed by some games. I won't go deep into volunteering today, as it was more of the same old thing - updating the GLBT Center's online presence. But I will go into everything else that happened during the day....

Over the past week, I have been monitoring the price for an eleven day Eastern Caribbean Cruise that I could buy for under $50 per day. As of today, enough people have jumped on this deal, so that the price per day (before tax and tip) is close to $65 per day. Since there is no single person supplement, this is still a very affordable cruise. I've discussed this with several people, and I still may book the cruise tomorrow if the current price is still available to me.
After my late afternoon visit to the GLBT center, I made my way down to game night with a stop at Panera for dinner. It was a very small gathering today, as two of our regulars didn't show up. This allowed for more intimate gaming. The first game of the night was San Juan, and I lost (as usual). But then my luck changed when we played Lotus, as all the cards kept falling my way. Eventually, we got to playing Codenames, and I did fairly well with clue giving and clue receiving. It's not my favorite game, but it is something which I can play for a little while and stay interested.
One thing I noticed during tonight's game play was that my subconscious was ready to make my play as soon as another player finished his/her turn. It must be anxious for things to happen - as if hearing the right kinds of sounds triggers me to do things without thought. This can be quite helpful when I've been thinking ahead and I can make my move based off of someone's action, but it's not useful when I have to pay attention to who is making that action.
I was starting to get tired early, and left before 11 pm. Even though I stopped into the White Plains Walmart to buy some things, they had changed their hours and closed at 11 sharp. For the heck of it, I decided to fly up to Mohegan Lake to see if they had the storage containers I wanted. They did not. But M, my favorite Walmart stocking clerk was there, and we chatted for a while. Hopefully, she'll be able to make it to a late lunch next week, as it would be nice to see her outside of work.
