A new house, a new life

It's funny how moving house can not only change your routine, but your entire way of life. I know it's early days yet, but thus far I have found myself going back to old habits I haven't done since before I moved in with bishi_wannabe; having a shower in the evening, waking up before my alarm, having breakfast, making myself a packed lunch, getting to work early, that sort of thing. These things, plus the extra excercise of walking that little bit furhter each day and up and down the stairs each night will probably make me a healthier person.

Also, I am counter-acting my lack of planning for my DnD session tonight with the plan to stuff my players so full of good food that they fall asleep. One of the added health-benefits of our new location is the fact that there is a fairly-ecclectically stocked supermarket five minutes walk away, with an asian grocery store right next door. Thusly, I have devised the following banquet for my players tonight;

  • Vegetarian steamed dumplings, with shitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, peanuts, coriander, ginger and garlic

  • Steamed asian greens with hoisin sauce

  • Chicken with sweet chili sauce and cashews

  • Beef with a miso-green tea sauce and bamboo shoots

  • Chocolate ripple cake

Not bad for not having an oven I trust at the moment.  Fear my kitchen skills.

Breakin' routine...
Its weird how getting out of a set pattern of doing things can leave you in a much better position, even when its not a deliberate shift. I've shuffled bedrooms this weekend, and am still in that "er! not my room!" sort of mental state - am hoping that I can channel the same enthusiasm you've got to break habits of staying up too late and waking up exhausted.

Also, if you can't be bothered cooking, I heartily recommend Indian food as a way of replacing roleplaying notes. Puts players to sleep very nicely :)

Indian food + beer... conveniently, there's a decent cheap indian place about five minutes away, and a very good bottleshop not much farther than that ;)
