And we’ve come to another Saturday. Ah, the possibilities for today. I’m sure a lot of you are spending it at Adepticon. Me? I’ve picked up a bunch of snacks and some drinks and am going to watch some MST3K on Netflix. Because I’m cool like that. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, I know what you̵...

And we’re back to Tuesday. I’d totally forgotten that yesterday was the first day of Spring. It certainly felt like it. The bit of a cold snap we’d had is gone. It’s supposed to get up to 80 today. We’ve switched the thermostat in the office from “heat” to &#...

Ah, Saturday. And it’s Games Day at the Milton Library. So, of course, that means it’s raining. Funny how that seems to be happening. 3rd weekend of the month, we’ve got some rain. But, seeing as I like rain, it’s all good. Rain and gaming. Seems great. Anyway, we’ve got...

It’s Tuesday. We’ve made it through the “worst part” of the week and can focus on moving ahead towards next weekend. I’m doing my part to make the day better here at the office by bringing in Magic Cookie Bars. And it seems that karma is paying me back in kind. The settl...

We’re back at Tuesday. And I’m back in the office. Though it’s also the first time I’ve been in the office. How does that work? Well, we’re finally set up in the new digs. There’s still plenty of stuff to sort out where, exactly, it will all go. But hey, you gotta ...

It’s Tuesday and I’m still updating from home. That’s not a complaint, on either point. But anyway, being Tuesday, that means it’s time to help speed up your work week with a list of gaming podcasts to help eat up that time at the office (even if you’re in your pajamas i...

Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It’s Saturday! So, let’s not wait around. Let’s get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I’m thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix’s algorithms in ...

Tuesday already? I guess that’s what happens when you have Monday off. It was an odd day, being a mix of a regular workday (doing TGN stuff much of the morning), going grocery shopping midday (something I usually do on Saturday), and then doing some laundry and cleaning in the evening (which I ...

It’s another Tuesday. My week’s gone rather well. I got some Pathfinder books in the mail, and some packages I’d sent out to gaming friends got there safe and sound. But, as always, I’m looking forward to the weekend. Though, in this instance, I hope the week doesn’t go ...

And we’re back in the office after a long weekend. You know, when it comes to long weekends, I prefer having Monday off as opposed to Friday. Reason being is you’ve got a long weekend and then a short week. Gets you back to the weekend that much quicker. What can also help the week [&hell...

We’re expecting a bit of a warmup here in Atlanta over the next couple days. Low 50s today and into the mid-60s by the end of the week (that’s ~10 to ~16 for our Celsius-friends). Considering how cold it’s been (relatively speaking), it might be time to go outside and do some walkin...

I hope everyone’s having a great holiday season. It’s been a nice one over here. Christmas, itself, was kinda lackluster, but yesterday we smoked a pork shoulder and made a fruitcake. Smoked pork shoulder might not be the most traditional of Christmas meals, but I could certainly stand to...

Since it’s after Thanksgiving, we’ve got Christmas music playing here in the office. But you can only hear Jimmy Durante sing about Frosty so many times. As such, we’ll switch out to gaming podcasts so as to not get grandma run over by those reindeer again. This week we have: Geeks ...
