Several years ago, nearly a decade in fact, I started using a website (more accurately a group of websites) that tracked "consumption" of things. At the time it was one of three places I was tracking the books I read and it also allowed me to track where I'd been, the movies I watched, things I wanted to do and at least a couple of other things. At the end of this month that website is going down permanently so I'll be spending some of my free time over the next week or two copying information from there to other places. There's more information there than i remembered so I'm probably going to get at least a little distracted as I go through things, that is after all what happens when I try and sort through things in my room.
I played a game of Terra Mystica on Wednesday night and actually found myself doing well, notable change from the prior four games I'd played. Having one completely new opponent and another who'd played one less game than I probably served me well. There's a reasonable chance that the next time it's offered I'd be willing to play again, now I feel like I can play at least competently. That night also saw my first couple of games of One Night Ultimate Werewolf which I don't think I'll be wanting to play a lot, as there seemed to be a lot of randomness in it, but it does provide a Werewolf like experience in a much shorter time.
My Thursday night saw my first game of Colosseum for a few months, without me even getting around to requesting that it be taken to SAGA. I scored respectably, even though I felt I wasn't picking up the tiles I wanted. It also saw a bunch of us in our first game of Ladies & Gentlemen which I'll probably not be inclined to play again, mostly as it's a team game where you can't really communicate with your teammate. I have enough issues with co-op games in general, I don't want to be working with someone that I can't talk to.
Over the course of my weekend I spent a lot of time with a friend, getting to play DC a few times and I saw the Pretender for the first time in about five years. It was good to get out of the flat without really having set plans. I also got to see another friends new place, all the way across the car park from her old place.
Buckets of Dice is happening in about 2.5 weeks and I'm not sure if I will get enough sleep this time. Last year I ended up sleeping in on the Saturday as my alarm didn't wake me and I went to church on the Sunday morning instead of going straight to games. This year I hope to avoid being late and I won't be going to church.
In less good news, I spent almost all day at work feeling quite down. Without obvious cause besides the weather change and the negative comparison to a good weekend.
