Celebrated New Years Eve by playing Eclipse last night. Unfortunately, it took too long to learn and play (with a break for Chinese delivery) to get the train game that we promised Francie Pants on the table. She was a good sport, and didn't come in last by a long shot, even though she claimed she hadn't a clue. It's enough of an economic game that she was able to catch on to that part quickly.

The Spawn got to pick what we did after the gamers left. She picked watching the ball drop and a couple episodes of Buffy.

You're such a lucky girl! Seriously! I would like to have all of those, except Forbidden Alchemy maybe because I don't have MoM :D

I've lost patience with spending my leisure time doing something I don't like with people I don't care for.

Nooo. I like that guy. Actually had a really good time with him on Friday. He taught me Ascension and Summoner Wars. Plus, he doesn't hate you. Drunk you just pissed him off.
And I think it would be funny to get him on the Podcast with you.

5 Fingered Severance sounds more interesting than I expected.

LOL, what is it with roof guys 'n trucks? :) I was especially irritated with mine because I just replaced the garage door one year earlier, so it wasn't like he busted up something old and needing to be replaced. It was practically new!

Fixed:

Refrigerator (parts $3 plus shipping)

Dishwasher (parts $60 plus shipping)

Microwave (parts $2 plus shipping. FYI, if your microwave starts sparking and smoking and seems like it may be about ready to explode and you are all thinking that you are going to have to spend about $100 or more to get a new one, it could be that you just need to replace the wave guide, which is a super inexpensive part and takes like 30 seconds to install. )

Range (replacement part discountinued. $15 worth of rust restorer, epoxy, a screw, spit and a prayer.)

Garbage Disposal (unfixable. New one purchased and installed).

Still on the to be fixed list:
Two toilets, two lighting fixtures, a couple of doors.

I am happy. My friends are coming over this evening to play with me. The sun is shining. We have electricity and heat. The Spawn is being pleasant. The Man found the bag with $100 worth of brand new drapes that I mislaid and have been looking for for a month. My kitchen floor is almost done.

Today when I was looking for the screws for the doorknob rosette, I found the hinge we couldn't find yesterday. The hinge is vintage and is probably original to the house. I ran out and bought a modern hinge to use yesterday. Today Al was all like, should we take the door down, take off the new hinge and replace it with the original. I was all like NO Fing WAY. The door is up and it is staying up.

Anyway the rosette is screwed in now. We've did most of the clean up last night.

This afternoon we started cutting the wood for the radiator cover, but then Al had to go out, and I don't use power cutting tools without a buddy, so I did the black touch-up painting.

Hanging doors is the stuff of magic. Once a door is hung, there it shall stay until sundered by weather or angry teens.

Story
Introduction
You can usually find me over on  Fortress: Ameritrash


In answer to a few questions that I have received: Yes. Yes. No. Maybe. Absolutely not. Arkham Horror. Akua’ba, Kachina, Los Dias de los Muertos, Musha Ningyo, Hina, and Voodoo dolls. Basil Hayden and Knob Creek. My spine and my left arm. 

I'm not a frequent sharer on google. When I do it will usually be about one of the following topics:

Hobbies: 
Boardgames. I'm a site admin and editor of a boardgame hobby site. Although I usually put most of what I have to say regarding boardgames up on the Fort, I may sometimes share here as well.

Biking. This is seasonal. I'm always hoping to get out there 'next weekend' but the weather and other responsibilities seem to always prevent it.

Home: 
Restoration/remodeling/repairing of our Victorian house. There has constantly been some part of it under construction for 16 years. 

Family
My daughter (aka The Spawn). She is like this alien that lives in our house that needs to be constantly plugged into an electronic device to survive. 

My husband (aka The Man) who is usually awesome and can reach the stuff on the top shelves. 

Work: 
IT stuff.
