After we parted ways, our trio headed back to Tabi's place to play some games. So...some backstory. A while back I picked up the game Zeppelin Attack from the Kickstarter. (This is going to be a recurring theme, I think. I pick up a card or board game every now and then from Kickstarter; almost all the RPGs I get anymore are through Kickstarter. This is a whole other topic.) When I had first pitched the game to the household, Gb's suggestion was that we should have zeppolis when we play Zeppelin Attack, which sounded good to me. So, back to now. I had picked up some zeppolis for New Year's Eve so we could play it then, but we didn't end up playing; I think Murder of Crows probably took its place. Whatever the case, we didn't end up eating the zeppolis. :) So I was thinking we could take care of that tonight, instead. But instead of diving into Zeppelin Attack when we got back, we instead tried out Boss Monster, which was a game I had picked up this past Metatopia (in November), but that we hadn't tried. (I also didn't know anything about it; I just picked it up randomly.) It seemed like it would be an easier and faster game than Zeppelin Attack, though (which is a deck builder), so we gave that a shot. It's an all right game. It's pretty fun, but it has that fatal flaw (to me) of player elimination, and I can also see the game getting old pretty quickly (not a lot of card variety), but it was cute in its way. I believe Tabitha won both games. I definitely know I got eliminated in both games. ;)
Anyway, she's having her tea and reading, and I'm just dashing off this entry before bed. I'm getting sleepier earlier in the day these days, I think, but I'm taking that as a good sign that I'm putting together a better sleep routine than I've had lately. It remains to be seen whether this helps me be more productive overall, or at least get more done in a day (not sure if that's the same thing or not), but I'm keeping a good thought.
Today's roundup, then, is a little bit of Internet, and a whole lot of social time, some of it even involving someone outside the family. ;) I'm starting to feel sad about there only being one more day of free time before it's back to work. Before the end of the weekend comes, I always like to think I'm going to "make the most of it," whatever that means, but I always end up feeling like there's never enough time to get the stuff done that I want to get done. So we'll see what happens tomorrow. I still have so much catchup to do, and the thing about the Internet is that there's always more of it. Oh, on the topic of making the most of my time, though, so far I think I'm doing all right trying to take advantage of the Habitica stuff. As was recommended, I'm not jumping right in with a million things to keep track of, but the stuff I am tracking, I think I'm being pretty good about so far. I dunno...still calibrating. I'm pondering whether it's worth spending money on it, but so far I'm leaning toward "yes." That lends some importance to it, so I think it will encourage me to take it more seriously. Yeah...that's sounding pretty good, actually.
