Last night I met my long lost twin sister, Peaches from RunAwaySquirrels.com. OK, so she’s not really my twin sister, but she might as well be – We chatted for over 2.5 hours and believe me, it was scary how much we have in common. Peaches bet me to posting the highlights of the chat on her site. Believe me now?

Bert, SmileyChris, Kodiak and I played Kill Dr Lucky the last two nights. Bert took the first night, and Kodiak won last night. I keep doing these excellent card combos to attempt a murder on the lucky one, only to realise that someone in another room can see me. So that started a house rule that tabled cards are not returnable to your hand. I’ve done that three times now. Smiley and Bert would crack up laughing when I did it. I have to laugh at myself for being so stupid. Then Bert went and did it and I had my turn at laughing! I tell you, board games are better in real life than say on the computer – the computer will tell you when you can’t do something, not other players… 🙂
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 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 😉 – 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 🙂 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?
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 😉
