it’s a lazy, rainy Sunday…

I didn’t go to bed terribly late last night, but I was tired, nonetheless. After my big day of gaming, I needed some decent rest. I intentionally didn’t set an alarm and as such, woke up at a ripe 11:28 this morning. YIKES.

I’ve been quite lazy and the rain hasn’t helped. Last weekend, I started a new tradition to make pancakes every Sunday. Every single one. But this morning, I didn’t have enough real flour for them; and I didn’t have enough eggs for coconut flour pancakes. I’m still trying out recipes to get the exact right one, but when you don’t have the ingredients, you’re still SOL.

So, either I’ll get around to it tonight or just skip it until next weekend. I did, however, manage to get my arse out of my house and hop to Starbucks. Now it’s just a matter of getting to work.

I don’t have anything interesting or planned to tell you tonight, so I’ll leave it at this. Lazy, rainy Sunday. No pancakes. Out at Starbucks.

I hope you have whatever kind of Sunday you’re hoping to have, Reader.


I’ve been to the winner’s circle…

Today, I met a friend of mine for what she has always called “gaming.” This term has scared me in the past because in my mind, I equated it with super-nerds gathering to play things like Dungeons and Dragons (the original board game) or others like it.

While there’s definitely some of that going on at said weekly “gaming” gathering, there is also a lot of playing not-so-intense-and-insanely-serious games, too. Caitlin and I began playing a game she had with another “gaming” friend called Splendor. The premise is to gain 15 points by collecting “gems.” This, I totally understood and enjoyed playing. Turns out I’m not the best strategist, though.

After a couple games of Splendor, we moved on to something more intense that Caitlin’s friend, Marc, brought a mammoth game that takes literally hours to play. (There were a couple of other games present that took hours, too, but we didn’t play those.)

The game: Eclipse.

Marc told us it would take a minimum of 2 hours to complete. It was way too much for me to (want to) handle on my own, so I asked if Caitlin and I could play as a “team.” (This basically meant that I had no clue what was going on most of the time, but helped make decisions here and there for our “team.”)


Start of the game. I was already feeling lost, but things got clearer as we went along.
