Spent the day hanging out with kazmat. First we hit the Lord of the Rings exhibition at the Museum of Science, which was highly entertaining. (The split-camera forced-perspective demo is particularly cool/disturbing, and I was a little surprised that there wasn't a special security guard for pretty-boy Legolas' costume.)

Then we swung by Harvard Square and visited Games People Play (me: the more current edition of Illuminati; kazmat: FBI and Cosmic Wimpout, the latter of which I'd introduced her to on Sunday) and Pandemonium (me: GURPS SWAT and a surprise un-pre-ordered copy of the limited-edition Deluxe version of GURPS Basic, Fourth Edition; kazmat: Natural Selection and Counting Zees).

Then off to dinner: Bombay Mahal, on Moody Street. Somosas, papadums, lamb rogan josh, naan, mmmmmmmango juice. Lovely.

And then back home to: play Cosmic Wimpout, establishing that kazmat's CW dice hate her and that mine hate me; open up, cut up the counters for, and read the rules to The Awful Green Things From Outer Space before deciding it would take too long; and play more Cosmic Wimpout. Figured out that the rule I thought I interpreted wrongly on Sunday was actually correct: w00t or something.

Late now: kazmat went home about an hour ago, and I'm just puttering before hitting the sack. A good day, I feel.

P.S. Oh, and, my quote of the day:
