Peace on Earth! Gimme Presents!

OK, so forget about the last post. That was just for when I didn’t think I was getting anything for Christmas. We all know it’s really about the loot!

I got Red Wine for Dummies, ‘cuz I’m old and have to drink this stuff (oh darn), so I might as well know something about it. A computer game named Cossacks. I overlooked it when it first came out, but it looks really cool. A nifty calendar called 365 Tiny Paper Air Planes. A t-shirt from Hot Topic (am I cool or what?). I’ll take a picture of it some time. And coolest of all… the Lord of the Rings version of Risk!

I hope all your Christmases were as fun and relaxing as mine.

    Ain’t it nice to have love translated as stuff? It isn’t perfect, but it’s better than being poked with a sharp stick or attacked with a lodenberry. Happy Christmas :>

    Heck, Cossacks looks cool! I got Neverwinter’s latest expansion, as well as Temple of Elemental Evil. And a nice winter coat and matching ball cap.

    It was a good Christmas. Glad yours was as well! Lemme know how the RISK plays, eh? I picked up the LOTR boardgame a few weeks back for a song, having played it last year (everyone is a hobbit, and it’s cooperative, and HARD), and recommend it highly.

    Played the LOTR Risk this afternoon with my brother and Paul for about 4 hours. Having the Middle Earth map instead of the old world map is really cool, as are all the little LOTR twists. You wouldn’t know it, since we played so long, but it doesn’t drag on forever like regular Risk can. That’s because there is a little gold ring that moves along the board following the track of the Fellowship after each person’s turn. So, it’s got a built-in timer. Also, there are events cards and leaders, places of power and fortresses to spice things up.

    Oh, here’s a suggestion for a red wine, too:

    Rancho Zabaco Zinfandel 2001, which we’ve found in the $15 or so range. Excellent taste.

    Hey man, you know I can give you the wine hookup, thanks to my current place of employ. I’ll see what I can do about sneaking some across the Florida border… 😉

    Eek! I got that paper plane calendar too. People are mistaking me for you! Help!

    Hmmm… have we ever been seen together? I think they’re on to something.
