(no subject)

Have I mentioned I'm in the middle of a five-day vacation? (I worked last Monday, in exchange for having off this Saturday.) Nothing too groundbreaking, just getting some stuff done around the house (well, helping RQ do it, at least.)

This afternoon I played in a Heroclix tourney. Marvel only, 200 points. I won the first game, and lost the next two to the guys who fought for first and second place. SHIELD team is hard to use, you never have enough actions (esp. at 200 points.) Though Captain America really proved his value, I confess.

Tonight was a fine game night, which turned into one long session of Zombies! with Red Queen, Regent, Decore, Goblin and Norton. I love the game, but really, six players makes it waaaaay too long.

Friday night was It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, which we found by accident, but a happy accident indeed. Took a while to get rolling, but great guest stars (Joan Cusack!) helped out greatly. Also, Pepe.

NEWS: Two headlines that should make you mad:

In case you're wondering what Bush is working on, here's the new way he's going to use to strip Americans of their basic rights. I hate sounding like a conspiracy theorist, but you don't need to be one to see where this is going.
