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.

Also, you're right. Even if I'm not totally enthused, I can do my civic duty without grumbling about it publicly.

I think what happened is that I'm juggling a bunch of different things, and the additional stress of contingency planning for the uncertainty brought out my more uncharitable side. That's my bad, and I need to work on it.
