As she told my boyfriends stories about my youth and they said suitably obnoxious things, I suddenly realized: oh my god, I had to get two of them, but these are partners who will give me enough grief. I'm so doomed.
Then I spent the rest of the evening putting together my CV for a Squid Labs proposal.
Last night, I went over to Keith's. Got some lessons in realistic swordplay (i.e., not stage fighting), and then we played Cosmic Encounter. I also got to hear the wrap-up of Ellen's saga at work, which had ended happily.
Tonight while Monkey & Kuma went off to Serenity, I opted out (still SO tired of the system) and instead went over to the Floyds' with Jeff & Tom & Matt K., and we played Betrayal At The House On The Hill with Chris. This is a fun new Avalon Hill game where you start out exporing a mysterious old house, building the board as you go. After a certain point, the horror-story scenario gets revealed and one of the players becomes the traitor, helping out the monster that appears! They have fifty different scenarios, so it's a different game each time. It's a lot of fun! We played twice, and the heroes won both times, but I think we got pretty lucky.
I still have a cough and a touch of laryngitis, but I'm feeling a lot better.
