|20 of us played 16 games, including new person Jeremy (another in the increasingly large juggling contingent).||
Friday September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrrrh!
The photo of the pirate, Whendy, and Sea Biscuit is of course from the recent San Francisco trip. Whendy made a spiffy little desktop-published book of captioned photos from the trip which may be perused by RussCon visitors curious about our journey. Since she makes professional brochures as part of her job, she said doing the book took less than 2 hours, which impresses me!
I know an increasing number of friends and cow-orkers who have livejournal blogs... despite my already having set up moveabletype here on the russcon server (and having my mostly-political blog and my Esperanto blog (which were fun geeky hobbies to get tweaked, especially the Esperanto one which is totally localized), I've now been sucked into the livejournal world as well due its neat features of friends/community/linkage etc. So now it's silly having 3 distinct blogs... I'm probably going to phase out the 2 older movabletype blogs and just consolidate at my lj blog from now on. I'm interested to chat with other bloggers about the pros and cons.

As always it was good to play Durch die Wüste again. Since it involves placement of nonmoving pieces, no luck or hidden information, and surrounding territory, Whendy felt at a disadvantage playing it with 3 go players, heh...
I seemed destined to tie for last or first in Blokus this evening.
JP & I played Balloon Cup without doing the silly tile flipping (as per last week's discussion). Unless several of us are totally brain-farting, it seems equivalent and less confusing.
