Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
I Just Wanna Say...
There's a pandemic and we have been SIP for 3 months...but I'm holding it together.
There are riots in the streets and the country is on fire...but I'm holding it together.
I can't get a div to center correctly on a page and I'm AAAAARRRRRHHHHHGGGGGG! I'm f*ckin DONE! It's 4pm. It's Friday. Where's the gin?
How are you all doing? Any plans for the weekend? Playing games? Reading a book? Taking a walk? Drinking heavily?
This weekend, I'm reading/making my way through Dune and the first MurderBot Diaries book All Systems Red. My isomate wants to play Freedom: The Underground Railroad. We're going to see if The Watchmen series is free this weekend to celebrate Juneteenth. Not sure if we will get that deal in Canada.
Today I took my toddler for a wellness check. He finds it very traumatizing. Tonight we’ll spend a lot of tine snuggling and maybe he’ll get a new present.
Bought a rake so I can clean the yard.
Got Giga-Robo and expansions earlier in the week as a pre-dads day gift and I’d like to play around with it. It looks like it will be a lot of fun.

As I've aged in the industry I have lost all patience with this kind of thing. They give me big tasks to work on because I swear like a sailor when piddly-ass shit that should work doesn't. It scares the interns.
I made a full thanksgiving meal. Sous-vide turkey breast, crisped skin, mashed potatoes, stuffing, peas, corn, gravy, and a the kids chipped in an apricot upside-down cake for dessert. It was great. Thankful for Father's Day, Juneteenth, and my Mom's (z''l) birthday. Who needs to wait for November. I am thankful now, let's eat!
We played PANDEMIC LEGACY Season 2, and finally won a game after 0fer'ing January. Game is heard as balls. My youngest keeps cooking up new versions of chess and he has one wear Pawns can be doubled and I have to tell you it's cool as hell. Hadar started an AGRICOLA solo contest on her iPad and you need 90+ points just to crack the leaderboard.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, and a great Father's Day if you celebrated it. The Spawn decided that for Father's Day we were all going to Tie-Dye T-shirts. She got all the supplies, and organized the activity. It was really fun. The we got Chinese Delivery for dinner. We also played some Wonder Woman and started re-watching Stranger Things.
Also, didn't mean to bring anyone down with the my mom has cancer thing. It's been going on for about 9 months now, and last week we found out that she had been mis-diagnosed and had been receiving the wrong chemo for the past 9 months, which was a real kick in the head.
Take care. Take time off. Take whatever you like and hang in there you lovely person.
I'm currently on a five day "Sprint Break," which means 5 days of CSS clean-up before we start coding new pages. Which means a week of eye-strain and serious meetings about the pros and cons of peach vs salmon.
