If You Were Waiting For The Opportune Moment, That Was It

We had a fancy meal, tossed a log in the fireplace, cuddled up and watched some shows on the DVR. Nothing too exuberant, but no less enjoyable.

I haven't quite figured out yet why A.V.A. keeps rebooting my PC as soon as I enter an instance, but I've installed it on another PC, and it works just fine there. Weird stuff!
