Regular Gaming Night at Strangeland on January 18th at 7.00p

Yes, there will be gaming at StrangeLand. It's on Wednesday, Jan 18th at 7.00p. If you need directions to get here, please ask.

The following are the dates that I expect to gaming to happen for January and into February:
1–18 — gaming night at Strangeland
1–25 — gaming night at Lunaverse Cancelled!
2– 1 — gaming night at Strangeland in the new year
2– 8 — gaming night at Lunaverse (see happilymyself for details).
As you can see on here, happilymyself has decided to set up gaming at her place on the Wednesdays that it's not happening at Strangeland.

I've set up a mailing list to announce and discuss gaming. If you'd like a mailed announcement rather than just reading this post, say so and I'll add you...

In the past, we've played Cricket Cricket, Carcassone (Hunters and Gatherers)/Carcassone (Medieval w/most expansions), Settlers/Seafarers/Cities & Knights of Catan, Apples to Apples, Nodwick, Fluxx, Chrononauts, ImaginIff, Falling, Snits Revenge, Awful Green Things, Illuminati, Lunch Money, Filthy Rich, Munchkin (with supplements), Killer Bunnies and others. It depends on what the folks that show up prefer as well as what they bring. Folks are welcome to bring their own games as well.

Note that many people _haven't_ played these games. Most of them are not overly complex and some can be taught on the fly. We do teach the rules before we play, so don't worry if the games aren't familiar.

It's okay to show up a little late to his since we usually play something light first, waiting for folks to show up.

Please feel free to show up. Bring snacks if you'd like although some snacks will be provided.

Posting, thinking, writing

I've been thinking about what it means to be a writer and how I don't self-describe as one. I might write but writing doesn't occur to me naturally. I am a thinker. I think about lots and lots of things. Some of them I even remember to write down. Once of the tasks of this journal is for me to better be able to express those thoughts in words, sentences, etc. that others will understand. It can be quite difficult at times; sometimes the thoughts just won't congeal. Other times, they are so myriad that in trying to force coherency on them, I lose all the meaning that I saw. I've known these things in the past but I'd forgotten. It's good to remind myself of them.
