My week, in review: MTG rules, tea and beer, some photos.
One of Susan’s co-workers suggested that I take a daily photo of myself to document how my look changes over time. I did it for three days before I forgot to take a photo for the day. So, that is out. And besides, my look doesn’t change that much day to day. However, it is sometimes substantial from week to week.
Add to the fact that I am constantly taking photos throughout the week that I don’t do anything with, I think a weekly Monday post with interesting tidbits from the week prior, along with a gallery, would be a good idea. So let’s try that.
In gaming news, Magic: The Gathering got a rules update. Interesting part: Deathtouch can assign one point of damage to a creature to count as lethal. Relevance? Deathtouch and trample. ^_^
Also, Eternities Map, a Planechase variant, looks very cool.
I picked up Guild Wars: Eye of the North from Half-price Books. Why? Guild Wars 2! Specifically, the Hall of Monuments. What sucks about it? I have to play GW to get the tapestries that let me trick out my hall… and I can’t jump. As in, Thrembode of Orr can not lift both his feet off the ground at the same time! Ack!
I had tea and red bean dumplings at Berkeley Teahouse. It was great! It made me want to really get into tea, the sencha I had was invigorating.
Speaking of beverages, besides our normal fare of Tree Frog Ale and Stonehenge Stout, Susan and I had a glass of B-4k, Triple Rock’s 4000th batch of beer. It was nice, very smooth and fruity. Also, we got a pint of Drake’s Hefeweizen, which had been described to us as being “bitter banana”. Susan described it as “orange blossom”, which is more accurate to my tasting.
Triple Rock‘s website is embarrassing.
I caught some books of light
attacking complementing Susan, cleaned up my web presence, and ran the sixth session in D&D Encounters. I even found time to wax poetical on Neko Ramen and YARPP. ^_^
So, I guess this is going to be kinda like a weekly brain dump. I am okay with that, of course. It feels good to post these things, which needs a little more detail than a microblog post. Since I added links to the posts from last week, I am going to use this as a weekly digest of what I am talking about, on the web and beyond. So, if my feed gets too bloated, you could always subscribe to the weekly (RSS) tag. Bam, useful technology!
