Bear & Moose

Home from Wisconsin

After a wonderful weekend I rolled into the house at about 6:30 this evening. hellbob was so filled with glee at seeing me that he offered to rub my feet and feed me bon-bons. Well, ok, maybe not that last part. But he was glad to see me.

A couple quick weekend highlights:

●The same convenient room as last year - the first one down the hall from the bear room.

●Feeling slightly embarrassed as I am checking into the room and I have to write down the name of the other person in the room. Had to admit to the old lady at the desk that I didn't know his last name...Luckily this was a platonic separate beds kind of thing or I would have to feel so ashamed of myself.

●The Roadkills prepared a fabulous taco bar.

●I sat in the hot tub with Monte, chebutykin, cajones, and moneygod. Monte was getting me all hot and bothered with talk of the good deals & rebates on the Canon Digital Rebel right now. Bastard! I want one & we just can't afford it.

●I learned a fabulous game from Nate called Lost Cities. It's a really fast 2 player card game. It involves some math, but no game can be perfect!

●I crashed relatively early Friday night & awoke wonderfully refreshed.

●a Squishy was cuddled!

●I was in pajamas approximately 2.5 minutes from the time I walked into the hotel

●I hopped on up to the casino for a little while on Saturday afternoon and walked out of there $40 ahead!

●My reading material over the weekend was Fray, the future slayer graphic novel by uberwriter Joss Whedon

●Other games learned over the weekend included Girl Genius: the Works and Lunch Money.

●Watching Perrin & Markiee trash talk each other while battling it out in Lunch Money is high entertainment!

●Also played a game called Salad Bowl that Eric invented. Kinda like a combo of Charades and Outburst.

●Nate (he's the one that introduced me to the joy of Killer Bunnies last year) had both the new expansions so the Killer Bunnies deck was HUGE!

●He also informed me that Southdale Games by James has two different limited edition cards that I must fetch. Oh yes, I must fetch them!

●I got to see photos of an actual honest to gosh brain (still in head, during surgery)

●Got to chat with lots of wonderful people including, but not limited to: chebutykin, cajones, moneygod, dddragonlady, 7thstranger, windelina, pied_piper70, alisgray, barda, cleo, lexinatrix, realsarah, geohard, michaellee, frozendragon, gingerpook, gunthar, eowynmn, and of course eldogo(the aforementioned guy whose last name I didn't know.

Do I have to go to work tomorrow????

Killer Bunny!

Wanna play a game?

One of my favorite things about Omegacon (besides all the great conversation, the hot tub, the fantabulous Roadkill con suite, etc) is all the cool new games I get to learn. I want to get to play games more often, so I've created a poll:

Poll #385268 Game night?

Would you come to the HellHouse to play games?

Of course!
Only if I have nothing better to do
Strip poker?

What nights of the week would be good for you?


How often would you come over?

Every single time you let me!
Probably more often than not
Once a month, tops!
Never! Didn't you read my answer from above?

What games do you want to play?

Apples to Apples
Killer Bunnies
Trivial Pursuit
Lunch Money
Strip Poker

If you checked Other, what other games do you want to play?

editOk, so Settlers of Catan has gotten quite a few write in votes. I don't own this one & don't know how to play it yet, but I'm up for learning. One called Time's Up also got a couple write ins & I'm not sure what this one is...
Friday & Saturday seem to be the two most popular nights (just by a titch) which just proves that we're probably all getting too old! One thing I didn't think to mention was that until the end of the semester, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday don't exist in my life. Now I will just have to consult the oracle calendar and the hellbob to figure out a good time for the first Gathering of Geeks Playing Games!
