Woot so laste it's useless [Mar. 28th, 2009|10:12 am]
Game night time again, let’s celebrate end of spring break. I’m making vegetarian and meat lasagna. Food will be ready to eat around 5:30 or 6 on Saturday March 28th. Feel free to show up as early as 4, especially if you have kids, then they can have some play time before dinner. I will have a couple homebrews on tap and the plan is for first major board game will start at ~7 (Settlers or Ticket to ride). Bring games you want to play. I have rearranged furniture so it should be possible to run 3 tables and depending on who RSVP's it will significantly alter what and how much board gaming is done. So, please let me know if you will attend, the more the merrier.


Sorry the post here is so late. I forgot to put on LJ.

My mom who runs an organic farm has being periodically blogging about her farm. I thought people might be interested in it. She just had an Amish couple move in with her to help out with some of the farming chores. Hopefully she will increase her blogging and provide more updates. She is currently selling Community support agriculture (CSA) shares for this year. You can find more information about her CSA shares on her Local harvest page. Her farm also has a website but since I'm a bad son it's not up to date.

I am a pickup site for her CSA shares in Kent so order 1 today and support small farms!

Game Night [Jan. 27th, 2009|10:19 am]
It's been a while since I've had a game night. Planning on having one Saturday the 7th. Serving chili vegetarian, mild, and hot. It will be Cincinnati style since some kids just are not happy with out plain spaghetti to eat. Chili should be hot and ready to eat from 5:30 to 7:30. My plan is to have kids type people show up around 4 for predinner playtime. It's reasonable likely we will have at least 2 games going on at the same time. First major board game will start at ~7 so if that's what your looking for show around then. Bring games you want to play. I have rearranged furniture so it should be possible to run 3 tables and depending on who RSVP's it will significantly alter what and how much board gaming is done. So, please let me know if you will attend, the more the merrier.

My goal with this party is to have two phases and slowly at bedtime for the kids switch from kid birthday party craziness to more of a dinner party/board game atmosphere.

My World of Warcraft guild is full of fail and losing members. I'm kinda the second in command. It's fun to run a sinking ship and pretend nothing is wrong/happening. Life goes on. My son turns 9 this week! My grandfather turned 80 last week. It has been a good week. My son won his first wrestling match of the season in 30 seconds with a pin. I am proud of him. School :( lawyers :( still don't know what I'm gonna do about that.

My son's lizard "Lizz" died yesterday during the night. He is pretty upset. It's not the first pet that has died but it's his first pet :(

He wants to get another lizard in a while and we buried it outside his window at his mom's house. Kinda sad. Gwen is acting more upset than he was for attention but he is pretty bummed. We also printed out a nice picture of Lizz to frame and are looking at getting some kind of pet gravestone.

Sad

Is fun. It's mostly more of the same. But the same WoW was kind of good. Best new feature is probably the vehicle system. It works pretty well and is very versatile. It's always fun to fly a bi-plane or shoot at stuff. Blizzard does a pretty good job.

Doing a game night this Saturday November 8th. The plan is for dinner around 6 or so. Dinner will be Turkey with stuffing and Potato Soup. The soup and some of the stuffing will be vegetarian. RSVP if your up for coming. Should be pretty kid heavy.

Woot beat the game!!

My guild finished all current Raiding content with three weeks to spare before more is released :)


I have a Apple Power mac 7500/100 on my desk that I need to recover data from. Old and scary. It won't talk with anything modern. I can't even get software installed on it since Stuffit expander doesn't have a version old enough to work on OS 7. Hopefully I can use an old Zip drive to copy data off.

Drinking is fun!

Anyone gonna be out and about in Kent for Halloween?

Food [Oct. 6th, 2008|10:50 am]
Another successful game night. Had a nice mix of my kids friends and adults. Got a game of Ticket to Ride in which is progress from last game night which just had a giant horde of kids running around for a couple hours. Everyone was to tired from drinking on Friday night to get another game in so no 2am settlers game. My son really wanted to play Settlers of Catan :(

I learned about games.asobrain.com which is a java based totally kick ass online version of settlers and a couple other games. Without all the setup/board hassle it only takes 30-60m to play settlers. It rocks.

I'll do another game night next month after Halloween party recovery.

I'm looking for food suggestions for next game night. I've made chili, beef stew, lasagna, and pizza.

Suggestions need to contain a easy vegetarian version, can be a lot of work, but the cooking needs to doable before hand so I can participate instead of cook once people arrive. (IE pizza was bad, since you had to make the pizza after guests arrived.)

Game Night [Sep. 29th, 2008|03:40 pm]
I'm planning a game night for Saturday October 4th. Lasagna for dinner. Should be a lot like last time (many kids) but hopefully after kids are tired and have to go to bed we can play some games. At least some of the older kids will be interested in doing easier games such as Ticket to Ride.

Let me know if you want more info and if you will be coming.
