I went to a holiday party for work this evening hosted by our lab director. The food was very, very good (his wife used to be a chef), and there was, y'know, the usual cow-orker chatting. I need to remember that I'm actually an extrovert and interacting with new people can really get my brain running.
Anyway, it's always good form to show up for extra-curricular work events, but this was special bonus, because I discovered something really cool. Our lab director (my boss's boss, basically) loves games! He owns a copy of the Sid Meyer's Civilization board game. He suggested maybe we should have a departmental games night. He designs his own games, even!
So we're going to try and include him in our demo/playtest later this week.
That's really cool.
