Mmm… Risk

Yeah, I’m addicted to board games. I’ll admit it. Yesterday, $100 dollars of vouchers for The Warehouse (NZ’s Wal-mart) arrived in my hot little hand. I won them for doing a consumer survey with AC Nielson. So I bought Risk. And a laundry hamper.

Last night I played Kill Dr Lucky with Mufasa, MonkeyJay and Nelg, we really enjoyed it – full report later when I get a moment.

I am not cheap

I went into Mindscapes this arvo. Mindscapes is this store that sells heaps of really cool stuff, like board games, telescopes, books, puzzles, etc. I hate that place ๐Ÿ˜‰ – they take my money in return for fabulous games! I usually go in there about once a month, and today I discover they have Cheapass Games! (so cheap, even their website is made of cardboard!) So I’m like “Yeah, you guys rule!” and then part with NZ$70. I bought Kill Dr Lucky and Girl Genius – The Works. Dr Lucky was $20, and I can’t wait to play it ๐Ÿ™‚ I played GGTW with Smiley’s little brother Andrew who is down with his family for the weekend. He beat me. Isn’t tht always the case?

Photograph Photograph

I got the photo gallery up now. It’s only got my old 21st Birthday party pics from this february, but hopefully I might be able to secure a digital camera one day and start putting them up. Anyway, enjoy peeking into my life and my family ๐Ÿ™‚

Trillian Pro – It Goes KABLAM!

Damn, I just bought Trillian Pro Yes I actually bought it, here’s proof, I’m a Pro User. Man, it’s freaking sweet. Everything I thought it would be. I really love the RSS feeds and everything. IRC is cool too. I used to be a religous zealot of Miranda ICQ – now I’m converted. SmileyChris would say I’ve seen the light, but I should have saved my money — to that I say shuddup ๐Ÿ˜‰
