The housemate put together a sweet computer for me, too. Exciting!
Rest of the week is hectic. This coming weekend is up in the air. Some plans available in VA, but it's a matter of arranging transportation and the like. We'll see how it pans out. Might end up stateside instead.
(And yes, Portal 2 is out, but I will be picking it up... in a few months? Maybe? No rush. Took me a few years to get around to the last one, so, there's that.)
