Many thanks to hollandspiele.com/ for donating several games as prize support to (the little convention that could) - I won new Brian Train near-future urban combat joint _District Commander: Maracas_

Day 3, Final Game: _Tenkatoitsu_ by Hexasim - Feudal era Japanese conflict at the skirmish level. Unit orders which they may or may not follow combines with chit-pull activation to create marvelous chaos.

Day 2, Game 3: _Wir Sind Das Volk 2+2_ the game I've been most eager to bring to the table. High tension in the waning days of the 1980s as nuclear tensions threatened to tip over the brink into the final war.

In the end, we had an East Germany who never built in wall and survived into the modern era with a functional socialist economy, breaking free of the Soviet leash, while the USA turned its ambitions toward space. A hopeful alternate history.

Day 2, Game 2: brought in a full game of _SpaceCorp_ in just a few minutes over 4 hours. Managed a pretty solid victory through monopolizing production in Planeteers and a few good colony choices in Starfarers. I continue to love the narrative that this game spools out.

Day 2: Super glad _Inis_ made it to the table. Was able to get in two games, the second with 3 players and I'm starting to really see the subtly that's possible. Definitely putting this on the hotlist for more play.

Me: this project will take X hours
My Boss: can we pretend it will take less?
Me: *shrug* sure, but it will still take X hours
...several months later...
My Boss: OMG we don't have enough hours in the budget
Me: *shrug*

I think my car is possessed.

I need an old Prius and a young Prius.

TFW you realize the charger you plugged into your laptop last night was not actually plugged into the wall, just before you have to run out the door.

Purchased a copy of this culinary bible from the delightful @imvictoriaprice earlier. Now listening to her keynote at the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival goodreads.com/book/show/251966

My favorite part of every H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival: A live performance of _Dark Adventure Radio Theater_!

In one of my classes there's someone with a really nice ThinkPad like I always thought of them as chunky sturdy lads like when French novels call a man "trapu" but this guy's ThinkPad was this shiny sleek thing still with the nub like they made a twink version of the ThinkPad and I kinda want it

Guy in line at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival is really concerned that his lengthy waxed and curled mustaches do not do enough to signal that he is a total and complete twat, so he has chosen to smoke a giant cigar to really seal the deal

In line to pick up passes for this year's delve into cinematic darkness

Found the amazingly well preserved original master of my self-made AD&D character sheet. Text on a typewriter, hand-ruled lines, logo traced from the D&D coloring book. Also found my first, massively twinked out character, the wizard Metzo Forte!

The Car2Go Bluetooth pairing screen is like a greatest hits list of phones in the wild
