It's been over a decade since I held a paint brush in ernest, so I'm pretty proud of this little gobbo
I feel like a very good reskin of Elder Sign could be made based on Supernatural (or Monster of the Week, to broaden the possibilities)
Really grateful to Lisa Hsu for sharing this perspective which I would not have had insight into otherwise.

One thing I'm happy about from this year has been getting back into miniature gaming. Breaking away from Warhammer and exploring other games has been really freeing. A setup that allows me to play with my long time gaming buddy in another state is the cherry on top. Pics from game of Mayhem (very fun set of rules)
This is probably TMI, but I inadvertently skipped my dose last night and ended up with a heady mix of insomnia and nightmares. At least the storyline about being a prisoner in an opulent hotel had some interesting twists... including the bit where the jailers had to take on modes of speech based on their rank (which they changed when advancing by murdering their superiors)

Some context for that last post: http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/msg.mv?id=85629
I've had to be "on" nonstop since Sunday morning, I'm past needing down time and into "hard reset" territory. At least I get to start my weekend early
It's the little things that kind of make all the difference.
About 4 months ago I added (he/him/his) to my work signature. Slightly smaller font, just put it there with no explanation. Read on twitter how it helped someone be more at ease.
Just now, I had a manager of another team be like "Hey thanks for that. Never saw it before, and read up on it. Glad to be more aware of stuff."
Little, itty, bitty thing. Makes a little bit of a change, little bit of difference.

Day 8 went better than expected after a rough time with Day 7
This may be the first solution where I felt like Go allowed me to be concise, but I still feel like it was clear and it ran quickly

As i finally put Day 7 to bed, I'm reminded of the wise words, "I'm not smart, I'm just well rested"
Struggled a bit to complete part 2 over the last few days of cold meds and busy schedule. Then one 10 hour sleep later and presto!

Super tired today, but still pushed Day 6: https://bitbucket.org/vwallen/advent-of-code-2017/src/24e5f7d2815f26eb9b3c41f72906978b891bacde/day6/
I wish Go had a built in Set type, may have to look for a decent library

Main finding about using Go for these is that it's a language that seems designed to discourage code golf. Which is not a bad thing
