A friend of mine is running a survey about cooperative board games. Maybe you'd like to participate to help give a clearer idea how people feel while playing these sorts of games?
Hey, folks, I'm having a bit of trouble making ends meet this month, so if you wouldn't mind buying some of my games at parenthesispress.itch.io or drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/10096/Parenthesis-Press that would be great. And if you aren't in the mood to buy something, could you at least boost the post, please? Thanks a lot!
Today I co-hosted the first of five Cooking 101 classes at work! My co-host Jason started us off with some knife safety and basic slicing/julienning/cubing. Then, I walked the class through making a balsamic vinaigrette, discussing emulsions, whisking, the importance of bowl size, tasting as you go, and substitution. We finished by slicing some lettuce and tomatoes to toss with the dressing.
Next week: Guacamole!

Bleh. Cranky. None of my work RPG players told me until today that they couldn't make today's game, and even then almost all required individually being prompted. It's A-OK to need to miss games, but tell me for crying out loud, ideally as soon as you know you can't play. That way I can at least whip up a one-shot for the people who will be around.

Just started another career mode game, with my commander Kinume "Lion" Matsu... And one of the random other pilots is another woman called Lionness. The game's bloody well started a wlw ship before I've been on one mission
Players: "Nah, we don't know whether these doomsday cultists have treasure in their tower. We don't even know if they're bad people. Let's go."
Later, some hermits: "We follow a god of life and death who likes human sacrifice, but we've been out of that game. We just want shelter, food, and to practice our magic. But those cultists are competing with us for the few resources out here, it sucks."
Players: "Human sacrifice, you say? And a rival faction getting in your way? WE HAVE A SOLUTION!"
I made a playlist to swap music with a coworker. It's a tour through sludge metal, doom, stoner metal and some psychedelia. The themes are, in order: An intro to sludge with some key players. Chill break with some of my favorite frontwomen in rock. Energy boost with booming bass and driving drums. Sampling of the Savannah/Atlanta Georgia metal scene, home of my favorites. Heavier, shouted vocals. More heavy stuff with distorted instruments. Finally, a wind-down.
Surprise! I had a perfectly-sized elopement on Saturday! Our party was the minimum size legally required by Massachusetts -- we and our officiant all met on the same day as part of the RPG group I set up when I moved to Boston. Our ringbearer joined the circle later and became a fast friend. Our photographer knew me and Caroline both separately in our home town before we met. She swears she meant to introduce us, but we found eachother just fine, and here we are. <3
