Happiness meme

I don't know if today is supposed to be the last day of the happiness meme or yesterday was, but it doesn't matter i guess.

Today:

It's friday the 13th again! Yayayayayay!

Yesterday:

I reorganized my podcast-tracking spreadsheet so i've actually got them coordinated by date. (ie episode of podcast X for week Z will line up with the episode of podcast Y for week Z.)

We had papa john's pizza for lunch, and they _finally_ remembered to bring parmesan cheese along with the pepper(?) packets. I wonder if i can justify stopping by a Papa John's store to buy some honey mustard cups to use with the free lunches.

Plus of course got to play boardgames and spend the night at shelleycat's place :)

Oh, and we had papa john's pizza again for dinner, and this time i got honey mustard sauce :) ate way too many calories though =P

Boring game stuff

We had a game of Race for the Galaxy in which three of the four of us all had 26 points. Luckily i won the tie-breaker with two cards (the others both had one.) I did much better in the second game, got lucky with my initial cards and luckier with my draws and got 49 points, i think everyone else was in the mid 20s or possibly the low 30s.

After that we plated a game of Agricola in which i did _much_ less well. We tried a variant on drafting; we each got 14 occupation and 14 minor improvement cards and then had to discard down to 7 of each. After weeding out the crap i had three different strategies that had okay combinations of cards supporting them, but i then proceeded to do a mediocre to poor job on all three strategies at once. Clearly i should have focused on one or two, but i still don't know which and how i should have gone about it. One of the other players got a really awesome combination of cards (he got to put out all of his occupations pretty much for free and all of his minor improvements for cheap) and came in second, but shelleycat got three or four good individual cards (no cross-over potential) and beat him by three points in the end :)
