It seems like I'm really taking care of business of late. I'm right on top of that passport thing. It took me three weeks between the time I had it all filled out and the time I managed to mail it. But since they rejected it because of this name thing, I've not wasted time. I sent the request to get my American passport back maybe three or four days ago. It was soon after I knew about what to do.
Today I went to the grocery store. And that's it. But it still seems like I've had a full day. Have chocolate chip cookies now. I get those bags that have four big cookies in them. I think they're made in the store. I also noticed that I had an unopened four pack of Snickers from the last time I went to the store so that was a treat. I forgot about them.
Playing some Crusader Kings 2 as well for the past two days. I'm playing as the Afghan family with some weird sun-worshiping pagan religion. It's been nothing but easy expansion into India. I unified all of Afganistan fairly quickly and now have two Indian kingdom titles as well. There were a bunch of little Indian countries that I've taken over and now it's just one big and one medium Indian countries but I can take them on no problem. I have the fourth biggest army in the world which is crazy because I didn't think I was so powerful.
But reforming this pagan Zune religion seems impossible. I have three of the five holy sites but won't get the last two because they're in the Middle East and there's some huge empire that controls them. You need to have 50% "moral authority" for your religion. You get 10 points for each holy site controlled so I'm at 30% minimum. Then you get 1 point for each county you conquer but they expire after ten years. So...you need a successful war every six months to get that needed 20 points. It can't be done. There aren't enough enemies.
You can also get points by building temples but again, only 1 point. Those expire after 20 years so a bit more longevity. But temples are really expensive. You'd have to build one every two years. You can't possibly make that much money and there's not even enough places to build these temples.
So I'm stuck on 40-42 moral authority and I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll never get the necessary 50%. It's pretty annoying, especially as it's basically impossible to convert counties if you're not reformed but whatever.
