It’s December. Yesterday, we had some pretty nasty storms roll through here in Atlanta. Today, it’s definitely a bit cooler than it had been. Sure, a high of 54 might not seem too cold to someone in Chicago (where I grew up). But it’s colder than the 70s it’d been the previous...

Well, it’s Monday and I’m back in the office after a very long and very nice weekend. 3 days of gaming/eating and then a chill day at home and watching my first Christmas movie of the year (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, to be exact). Since Thursday was a holiday, we didn...

The weekend might be over, but the weekend sales aren’t. Cyber Monday is here and there’s still some new deals to be found. What sort of deals? Just go check ’em out. But note: many of these end today, so you’d better be quick....

In a way, it’s Monday, because it’s the first day back in the office after the weekend. But it could also be seen as Wednesday, since it’s only 3 days from being the weekend again (Woo! Thanksgiving! Woo!). But what makes it once more feel like a Monday is that it’s time for a...

We’re just one week away. A week away from what? My favorite day of the year, of course! I’ve already got one turkey. I’ll pick up another this weekend, along with a bunch of other stuff so I can make dinner for my friends when I go over there on Thursday. It should be a […]...

At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?” Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other...

The first couple days went by slowly, but since then, at least for me, the week’s felt like it’s picked up steam and we’re rushing our way towards the weekend. I know I could use some relaxation time, and I just lined up a day of gaming on Saturday. So that should be good. Hopefully...

Back in the office again today. Saturday was a heck of a good time running that D&D game. Nobody died, thankfully. We had some really good character interaction. It seems everyone’s personality will mesh together well. So it’s looking like a good gaming group is being made. But that&...

So, not tabletop gaming related, but as a Chicago native, waking up this morning to hear the Cubs won the World Series was pretty awesome, even though I’ve not followed baseball for quite a long time. Too bad we don’t have MLB Showdown or that MLB Clix game around anymore. Anyway, that as...

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is...

Hello, Thursday. Nice to see you again. And it is nice to see Thursday, as it means we’re well into the latter part of the week and so the weekend will be here soon. Hopefully you have gaming lined up for this weekend. And if you do, you’ll want your gaming table to look as […]...

Monday. I know most people aren’t really big fans of it. And I can’t really blame them. I was rather comfy before having to get up for work. But it’ll be alright. Next weekend will be here eventually, and then the times will be good again. However, before we get there, we need to ju...

To be honest, the week hasn’t really done much to pick up speed at all. It would seem we’re going to be slowly just crawling our way to the weekend. Though it will be worth it when it gets here. I’m heading to the South part of Atlanta to go to a Gundam model-building day […]...

And so we’ve made it back around to Monday. It was a good weekend, though. Or, at least, I thought so. Good friends. Good gaming. Some pretty good food. Couldn’t really ask for much more than that. Today’s terrain corner’s a pretty quick one. Just one story, but we’re st...

You know… I could’ve sworn that I put a weekend here just a minute ago. Really, my weekend went by ridiculously quick. For example, on Friday, I blinked and suddenly it was 1am. Then Saturday went by in a flash, as I did some more baking before heading to a friend’s party. Sunday wa...

The work week continues on. For me, that’s meant some early days here. I mean, today I clocked in at 4:05am. I’m not just a “morning person.” I’m an “extreme morning person.” I didn’t have my alarm clock set, I just woke up at 3am. And no, I don’t...

Temperatures are starting to chill outside. Here in Atlanta, that means it’s only getting up into the low 80s in the afternoon. Of course, people here are thus saying, “it’s freezing” outside. Waddyagonnado? Well, maybe you’ll get a cup of hot cocoa, wrap up in a big, fl...

You know, it happens over 50 times a year. You’d think we’d get used to Monday coming after the weekend like that. Now, arguably, some are more jarring than others. But still. It seems like by now we’d all be a bit better on-board with the notion. Oh well, there’s always next ...

Well, it’s Thursday and that means a couple things. 1) I’m in my Thursday shirt. 2) The weekend’s just over a day away. 3) We’ve gotta make sure that your gaming tables look as good as they possibly can. As the first one is already in play and the second we can’t really ...

So, my weekend was filled with gaming and cooking. For gaming, on Saturday we played some Ascension, some Dogs of War, and some Ninja Camp. We also talked a bunch about a 5th edition game coming up. As for cooking, I made two batches of dark chocolate brownies (one with white chocolate chips and caye...

The weekend is over. It’s back to the office. But, hopefully, you got some gaming in over the past couple days. Me? I played some Guild Ball (Masons beat the Morticians) and then some Dogs of War (my favorite game that CMON makes). I also got to watch a game of On Her Majesty’s Service. [...

The work week continues on. As we make our way towards the weekend, the mind turns to gaming (at least, mind does). And seeing as much of the time, that gaming takes the form of a minis game or an RPG, it also means I’m thinking about terrain. You want your tables to look good, […]...
