Spent the rest of the day staring out my window, watching the rain come down in sheets. Didn't get any in the basement, though. I was mightily surprised by that. I cleaned some, did my laundry, had some ice cream, and listened to the Dodgers paste the Phils. Four rookies started today, and all did well. Matt Kemp hit his third home run in four whole major league games. At that rate, he'll pass Barry Bonds sometime in 2012 or so. Dinner was pasta carbonara and a glass of Riesling . Mmmm, bacon.
I also finally got around to installing Civ IV. There are a lot of changes from Civ III. The neatest one so far is that there's a voiceover of an applicable quotation for each new technology when it's discovered, similar to what was done in Alpha Centauri. The big difference is that instead of some anonymous voices, the quotes in Civ IV are done by Leonard Nimoy, which surprised the heck out of me when I first heard him. Very cool.
Still raining Tasmanian devils outside, and the power just blinked. So tired of rain.
