8 am, Descent, Bond [Jan. 27th, 2015|07:51 pm]
Oh, hooray, I do get to report for jury service tomorrow. At 8 am. How ever will I express my delight and elation. /daria

Not a lot to report from the last week other than an all-day session playing Descent with mel and Jason & Matt on Saturday, which was a lot of fun. We did the entire Trollfens add-on. The first encounter went to the heroes, the second was pretty much a gimme for the Overlord, the heroes rallied in the third and pulled off a very close victory, and then in the final encounter they stomped it pretty good. From which I conclude: game balance is tricky. Happily, it's a fun game to play whether you're winning or losing.

Um... I guess the other thing to mention is that I've been reading Film Crit Hulk's book-length review of the entire James Bond series, which is pretty interesting. I like Film Crit Hulk because he teaches me new things about movies cinema.

I'm being good! I'm showing up with a willing attitude, and if impaneled, I will apply myself to the best of my abilities.

My main complaint is that there's no way to know going in how much time it will take, and if it takes more than a couple-few days, it has decent odds of DEEPLY fucking me over at work.

That, and the fact that I had to be here in Brighton at 8 goddamn am.
