So, after my visit to Elyssa's house (best friend for well over half our lives at this point), I've learned some very valuable lessons:
- Shopping centers can spring up pretty quickly
- They're moving the guard tower at the base, and have done some very nice blockade work in concrete
- Elyssa has very nice taste in furniture
- I'm an asshole for not having gone to visit her, as all of these things happened since my last visit.
She was of course very nice about it, pointing out how she hasn't visited me in the city in at least as long... but I still feel bad... my measure of what should happen and how frequently isn't based on how frequently she does... our friendship far surpasses that kind of tit-for-tat style... but as a measure of time since then... well... I've missed a lot. :P
She's my bestest friend ever, and I love her dearly. :) :)
