...Aanywaaaay, not much to report. On days like this, we really don't do that much. We (that is, my brother, my younger sister, and I) had a couple of rounds in Starcraft, on the same map (bridge too near), working as a team. Terransx2 + Protoss (my sister and I were the Terrans, since that's the only civilization we had experience with) vs Zerg, then Zergx3 vs. Terrans. (Was quite interesting being thrown into the Zerg without knowing a thing about them.) Quite fun.
Then, we (that is, my brother and I, since it's our job) brought the tree up, as we always do. Different positioning this year due to circumstances I may or may not end up explaining* (a common trend, you'll find, of this blog), but otherwise normal. Then, my brother and I played Resistance3. I'm not good at FPSes, but it was fun all the same. That's literally all I did today, though.
Another common trend you'll find on vacation is that I have an overabundance of free time...which is all more or less squandered as I just sit with my siblings, interacting with them rather than, say, writing. (Anti-social activities, as my family would call them.)
...I'm fine with it, though. It's something to be cherished, relished while it lasts. (Particularly since, in all likelihood, this is our last vacation down here, given my grandmother's failing health*.) Still kinda sucks I don't get much done, though. Ah, well.
...And on that note, sleep.
*Edited note: No, in fact I never did go into the circumstances behind it, but as you can see by the linked asterisks, the events are in fact tied together. My grandmother is basically in a state worse than most zombies (for the most part; follow one of my later blog posts for more details). She now has to be on a hospital bed during the day, and that hospital bed is where we used to put the tree. So instead, we put the tree on the coffee table, with the coffee table slid right up to the couch where she used to sit when she still had some amount of mobility. (She now has to be lifted in a machine to go to her bed; she can't walk.)
