Regular Gaming Night at Strangeland on February 1st at 7.00p

Yes, there will be gaming at StrangeLand. It's on Wednesday, February 1st 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 February:
2– 1 — gaming night at Strangeland
2– 8 — gaming night at Lunaverse? Unknown. At her new place at least. I'll ask her.
2–15 — gaming night at Strangeland in the new year
2– 22 — gaming night at Lunaverse? Unknown. At her new place at least. I'll ask her.</span>

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, then TMJ

The slightly odd subject line is because I thought it sounded better than Posting and TMJ. There is no connection between them other than them both being mentioned in this post.

After sitting in rather nasty traffic today, my TMJ flared up again and hasn't gone down again. I think I am going to need to see someone about this. An Oxycodone took it from "Omigod this hurts" to "Ya know, this rather hurts". But I rarely ever take this level of narcotic. I don't want to deal with the side effects. I'm moving slowly both in mind and body.

In terms of posting, I decided earlier this month that I was dissatisfied with the level at which I was posting. Posting nothing between two announcements for gaming is, in my opinion, pretty pathetic. So, I decided to try to post every day this month. I made this decision on the 6th but I didn't mention it until now because when I've mentioned such things in the past, it seemed to've taken some of the impetus out of it and I never followed through. Starting with the seventh, I've made a post every day. Well, except for last night. Last night's post was really at about 1.30a but it was a choice of making love to cindygerb or posting. Guess which I chose. But I knew what I was going to post about and I had something more important to do, so I think it counts. Since this is really jut for me, my opinion is what is important. We'll see how I do in the two remaining days and in February.
