I have about $50 left in Christmas money. I did not receive Arkham Horror like I suspected I might but I am somewhat leaning in that direction... I could also beef up my Munchkin cards as I have zero expansions. I dunno. Besides Agricola (hallandoatbran) what would pick out?
I'm actually ahead on my illustration project (which means I might get to work some on my 52CC homework, maybe even finish it before Monday. Dropped by that1chiccomic's birthday/housewarming gathering last night which was nice.On reflection I think because it's the first gathering we've been to since coming back where I wasn't the main attraction (although the meet Cesa's boyfriend BBQ might count–except for the sheer number of people my folks invited) and we got to see belladonnalin and willowbean. I'm looking forward to getting out to regular social events. I do miss d&d although I'm really not sure when I will be able to rectify that. It's hard carving out time for stuff and I think I've proved that it's a task I'm finding difficult since the Return™.
I'll say it here though Denver: I am looking forward to BatHotH and the LOTR board game if there is time (I finally played in Scotland and my opinion: awesome. How are they expansions?). Sara would probably love some Settlers/Knights & Cities of Catan too seeing as how we don't own it yet (still). It's 9:44 am and it's time to start the day: Forward ho!
Now back to a normal schedule completely. Not everyone was available for the weekly role playing session so we played a varied assortment of games that I brought (I feel kind of like a jerk because with the exception of Plague and Pestilence: Gloom, Chez Geek (which I miss playing actually–Sara hates it–so I don't feel bad about that one), and Unexploded Cow. Good times anyway. Hopefully if we land somewhere that isn't Spokane, or the Denver, Seattle or Portland metro areas we won't have to work too hard to find a group of people to play with. Because that's the worst thing of all: to have no one to play with...
