I slept in much later than I had planned to and paid for it. Getting too much sleep feels the same to me as not getting enough. I wake up feeling stiff, sore, and tired. So that was how I felt when I got up on Sunday.

I got some coffee while the computer booted, then got dressed on SL. I took care of my free book & paid emails, then just sat and chatted with Cyn on SL for most of the rest of the day.

I did play a few of Casey’s “game boards” he had made, but they leave my brain hurting because the rules are unclear. I’m pretty sure he makes them up as we go along. Even the “dice” rolls make no sense to me. But he was happy that I’d played them with him, so I was happy.

Dave had been cooking something up in the kitchen in the afternoon, and when I went out there I noticed it was chili. I checked the cupboard and saw that he’d used almost all of the chili beans I’d gotten to make my own batch. I sarcastically thanked him for using all my chili beans.

Later in the evening, Casey was trying to show me something on the Switch, but I was trying to read something online so I was just like, “Ok baby.” He scampered off downstairs by Dave, and I heard him excitedly telling him whatever it was he’d been trying to tell me. I felt guilty at having brushed him off the way I had, but then I heard Dave shushing him every other sentence and eventually getting snappy because he was trying to watch the Superbowl (not even that into football!) and Casey was interrupting that. I didn’t feel as guilty and got to thinking. Casey has always insisted on being the center of attention. If one of us is talking to someone else, or hell even each other on the rare occasion, Casey will interject. If we don’t give him our undivided attention, he flips out on us for interrupting him, even though he was the one interrupting us. It doesn’t matter what we are doing. If Casey wants our attention he will make damn sure he gets it. If one of us brushes him off, he will go to the other and that person had better pay attention or he will get upset. This is something we will need to work on, and I think it’s directly related to his lack of patience in other things.

I sent Brad a random pick up line and got a response immediately. He apologized for shutting out this weekend, explaining that he’d had his daughters all weekend. We chatted a bit, and I told him I still hadn’t watched Logan. He said he didn’t have a smart TV, so I told him I had a Roku. He said “Oh,” so I said, “That is, if you wanted to watch it.” He said he was up for it and we arranged for me to go over there at 9.

I confirmed with Dave what time he would need to leave in the morning, and he told me that I could feel free to stay there forever. Much as I would like to, I can’t, and that was an unnecessary comment anyway.

I got Casey read to and tucked in, then I grabbed a quick shower and got ready to head over to Brad’s. Once there, I realized I’d forgotten the Roku remote, and couldn’t connect my phone to it to operate it via the app. Brad said we could just watch it in his office, and I said that was fine. But then we quickly discovered that we couldn’t watch it for free or with a subscription anywhere. I tried loading it on this one site I used to watch all the other X-Men movies, but it was one of those that someone had recorded with their phone and simply would not do. Brad ended up renting it for us on YouTube.

The movie was really good, though unlike the other X-Men movies. It wasn’t quite as action-packed and was more of a drama for much of the movie. I was sad at the end, but it was an ending that needed to happen at some point.

After the movie, we chatted for a while. I gave him his valentine, doing a poor job of explaining that when I saw it I thought of him and thought it was perfect because we’re both gamers (It’s a gummy game controller). Instead, he misunderstood what I was saying and it kinda ruined the moment and made it awkward. He still thanked me and I hope that when he sees it after he gets up in the morning it will bring a smile to his face. We kept chatting until we finally headed up to bed.
