With the exception of a couple of February's, last month was the first time since May 2011 that I've played less than 40 board games. The lack of SAGA was a portion of that, as was the limited weekend gaming and me choosing to not play something on each of those days. I started playing Magic Duels on Steam a week or so ago which has made me start wondering about joining the Magic: the Gathering draft thing I'm expecting to happen at Buckets of Dice this year. I've also got off my metaphorical butt and asked a friend if she would be interested in playing one of her newest games this week, making use of the SAGA rooms. I may manage more of that in suggesting particular games at other events.
I'm going back to work tomorrow, after working (what turned out to be a short shift) yesterday and three days last week, so I'm feeling like this year could be better, for a while at least. The reason I didn't do a full shift yesterday was machine issues meaning that what "should" have happened wasn't ready and I didn't want to spend the last couple of hours making more boxes.
For someone that has watched Star Trek and spin-offs for most of his life and has been listening to podcasts for more than a decade I took a long time to start listening to a podcast about Trek. It seems like every time I finish catching up on something I've been listening to the entire backlog of I find something else and then listen to that backlog in between keeping up with the others. So far I've listened to about 20 episodes and I only started listening to them on Saturday.
