Whether it's turkey, ham, or something else entirely, we hope you're able to enjoy something delicious this autumn! Good food, good friends, and good booze!
Fall is my favorite time of year, personally, though unfortunately we don't exactly experience seasons here on Guam. We did get something called tropical storm Kammuri yesterday though, so I suppose that'll have to be good enough. It sucks how a lack of seasons makes it really difficult to get into the 'holiday spirit' for just about any holiday. It never feels like the right time for any particular holiday, even the summer ones. Although, after the first few giant mugs of beer at Lutz's Oktoberfest celebration, combined with a liberal sprinkling of shots of German schnapps, it does start to feel pretty festive!
I don't think I'll personally be doing much this Thanksgiving. I have to work during the day and my wife certainly doesn't feel up to cooking or dealing with a large Thanksgiving gathering. She started chemo and radiation on Sunday, so far she seems to be tolerating it pretty well, though she's been dealing with some nausea (thankfully the anti-nausea medication the doctor prescribed seems to be doing the trick). This year we'll probably just go out to a restaurant to eat... probably something that isn't very appropriate cuisine-wise. The nicer places that are serving a special Thanksgiving meal are outrageously expensive, hundreds of dollars.
Our work on AW has been progressing, despite everything going on and a coincidental set of common colds. For one thing, I think we finally managed to kill the bug lurking around the date and hangout scheduling system! I'm pretty happy with how the huge B-Corps event turned out, I think you guys will like it. There's even a special bad end available, involving Steve.
Besty is adding a little bit of r*pe into the game as we speak, which should spice things up a bit. It's been a fairly common request and one that offers a lot of potential possibilities in execution. He also managed to finish the cooking system, which as usual can be easily expanded at a later date. Right now there are several unique dishes you can cook, which for the most part are surprisingly normal and less phallic than I expected. Of course, you can also make some of these:
My work on the sex system has been dragging, unfortunately. A combination of complex code, not-very-fun writing, and just general life stress. Rather than waste too much time to inefficiency, I'm probably going to take a different tack and work on the Dairy Hand job. I figure I'll get more stuff done for you guys that way, rather than pounding my head on something I'm finding temporarily difficult. Plus, hucows are fun!
Thanks for all your support!
