Xylorian facing left

Xylorian unpainted.

Wednesday was, as the title says, an unintentional exhaustion day.

I wrote a bit after midnight, then went to bed. There, I laid wide awake and talked into my CPAP mask for the next two or so hours. Yes, I tried going to sleep, but I always started rambling again. When I’m like that, I’m not going to get to sleep, so I just got up.

Though I intended to write some more, I spent most of the morning in a mewe.com group chat. At about a quarter after 11:00, I shut down the computer and headed up to Oasis Games to meet Kit. He’d offered to teach me how to paint minis, and I took Xylorian with me. For the next few hours, we chatted about stuff and worked on painting minis. While I did my Xylorian figure, Kit painted a random mini he’d bought off the shelf. We had a good time.

At around 17:00, my friend Cayden arrived, then JJ did as well, and Kit packed upt the painting stuff. He took Xylorian to seal and we moved out of the shop’s tourney area to sit at a table in the main area. Cayden, JJ, and I started playing Magic: The Gathering and Kit hung out with us until his ride arrived to get him. After he left, the rest of us played about three games total, each of us winning a round, then we packed up and left the store around 19:00.

It was, despite my exhaustion, a good day!
