The week of “getting back to usual” continues along. Of course, we’ll get back off schedule a little, since it’s a 3-day weekend here in the States. But still, good to be on schedule while you can. But, seeing as we’re getting ready for a 3-day weekend, that means we sho...

Man, what a weird week. Sunday was the last day of Expo. Monday was spent partially at the repair shop for my car, and then finding out my bathtub was leaking. The rest of the week has been working from home, waiting for repairmen, dealing with paint and fiberglass fumes, and now I’m taking som...

If there’s one thing I can use this week, it’s a pick-me-up. As you saw from this morning’s Podcast Roundup post, it’s been quite a couple of days since Expo over the weekend. I need to energize with some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the platter we have: New Hunter̵...

It’s getting busy here in the office, what with the CMON Expo coming up this weekend. Lots of the usually out-of-office staff are coming in. I baked cookies for the occasion. But it’s not just cookies that will sustain us for the show. We’ll also need to fill up on some bite-sized g...

Busy weeks tend to be fast weeks. This is a busy week, and therefore it is a fast week. I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. Soon, it will once again be the weekend. Have you gotten your plans set? Mine are still a bit up in the air. The Hunter’s Guild releases didn’t come ...

The week continues on. Most of my friends had a really busy weekend, so they’re having a bit of a time making it through the week. But it’s halfway over. The next weekend is making its way here as fast as the natural laws of time will allow. What might help is by filling up […]...

We’re continuing our trek through the work week. Actually, in a way, for me it’s sort of like a Friday. I say “sort of” because I’m gonna be working from home tomorrow a bit, but I actually have the day off. Don’t worry, though. I’ll still be bringing you som...

The week rolls along, just as the thunder outside rolls along. I have to say, obviously I hope that everyone stays safe and there’s no property damage, but at the same time, the Midwesterner in me is going, “Squeee! Thunderstorms! Yay!” I miss the storms that’d roll through Ka...

We’ve made it, everyone. It’s Friday (be sure to get your free item from Kroger). With any luck, your weekend will be filled with all things gaming. I’m… gonna take it a bit easy. It’s pollen season here in GA, and while I’m not particularly allergic to any of it, ...

The week marches on. We’re through the first half and headed towards the finish. Just gotta make it 2.5 more days and it’ll be the weekend once more. The first couple days have been sort of a mixed bag. Hopefully things will smooth out for everyone and we can make it to Saturday intact. W...

Hey kids. I see from my friends feed that quite a lot of you are headed to Chicago for Adepticon. I really wish I was going. I would be, but there’s a bunch of proofing projects that are coming along, and I know how you gamers get if you have to wait even an extra […]...

This has been quite a week. There’s been all the excitement coming out of GAMA, with lots of great announcements being made. And tomorrow I’ve got Board Game Day up at the library. I’m feeling a bit drained from it all. Better nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. Today on the pla...

Well, quite a week we’re having, aren’t we? But that’s what happens during big shows like GAMA. I’m sure all the surprises aren’t finished, either. Well, if we’re going to be hitting F5 on all our gaming sites, hoping for the latest updates, we’ll need to sta...

Amazing what a difference a week makes. Last week, I was lamenting how long it was all taking. This morning, I woke up and was like, “Whoah… it’s already Wednesday!” That certainly works for me. Faster to get to the weekend, the better. But if we’re going to be going alo...

Well, it’s finally Friday. Seems like it’s taken forever. Also, who wants to take bets on me clocking out this evening and then suddenly feeling like I’m clocking in on Monday morning? You know weekends never work like the work week. It’s going to just go by in a flash, I̵...

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently ...

Man, no day has felt entirely “right” this week. Monday was an amalgam of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Tuesday was like a Monday. Wednesday was kinda like a Friday. Yesterday was like a Saturday, but a lot busier. Today’s… still getting started, honestly. But it doesn’t...

It’s Thursday and I’m at home. The Office Move continues, with much of the furniture making its way to the new building. But since the new place isn’t quite ready yet, many of us are working from home. Besides, trying to write while movers are going up and down the halls with stuff ...

It has been a busy week. Work has been full of time working on (redacted). I can’t wait until I can tell you all about it. Other than that, I’m making pizza tonight. And by that, I mean I made my own sauce from scratch, and the dough ball that will be the crust is […]...

The middle of the week and the start of a new month. 2017 is already 1/12 in the books. January sure did go by quick (at least for me). Before you know it, we’ll be announcing Black Friday sales. Ok, maybe that’s a bit much. Plenty of things to do between now and then. And […]...

The weekend is pretty much upon us. We just need to finish up this afternoon and we’ll be there. Do you have plans? I’m still unsure. Though I think I want to make a cheesecake, because it’s been a while since I’ve made cheesecake. Probably make more strawberry-lime sauce to g...

And just like that, we’ve made it to Thursday. The weekend is almost within our grasp. Hopefully you have gaming-related plans. This weekend is the first Board Game Day up at the Milton Library for the year. They took last November and December off, but they’re back once again. If you don...

We’re once more halfway through the week. So far, it’s been a pretty standard week. After the chaos of the week before, I’m not complaining about that at all. I’m also not complaining about the temperatures we’re supposed to get to today here in Atlanta. I might just ope...
