Spent an enjoyable long weekend hanging out with friends and playing games. On Friday night, Dan and Jen came over for some pizza and games. Saturday night we saw Mike, Nancy, and Maggie, who we hadn’t seen in ages, and after making some music with Maggie we played a few new acquisitions. Sunday was my regular day with the James Gang, where we played a huge number of games, including a new favorite of mine, El Grande. And yesterday we headed over to Boston to hang out with Jay, who’s in town visiting his family. We didn’t play any games, though I did pick up a little Backgammon board at a thrift shop. Instead we made the rounds of used book stores, where I confirmed Dave’s Law of Used Book Stores: No one ever gets rid of Haruki Murakami books. We also got to experience the MBTA’s little prank of selling transit cards at the Alewife station that aren’t accepted anywhere else on the line! Ha!
I’m trying to think of anything else we did that wasn’t hanging with friends and/or playing games, and I can’t. Well, we took a nap, there was that.
All in all, a pleasant way to spend a weekend!
