International Tabletop Game Day

Last Saturday was International Tabletop Game Day (or something) and there was a big event at Game Empire, my local game store. SB picked me up in the morning and we zipped over there on his little Honda and played board games with STRANGERS for a couple hours (but I survived because they were board game nerds and board game nerds are my people). First we played King of Tokyo, which I had never played before and which was quite fun, and then Carcassonne, which I own but had never played with five people! Everyone was nice and I had a good time. I would have liked to stay all day but I am trying really hard not to get overtired and freak out like I did a couple weeks ago.

Yeah my self-inflicted emotional turmoil is all resolved. Long story, but I figured out why I freaked out (which had nothing to do with SB, really) and explained and apologized and I think SB understood and he seems to have forgiven me for being a psycho idiot that night and everything is good and I am very happy to be with him :)

Yesterday was a beautiful warm sunny day, up in the 80s, so SB picked me up in the afternoon and we rode his Honda down through PB and up to La Jolla and found a beautiful grassy spot on a cliff and watched the birds and the surfers and skimboarders and even saw a sea lion making her way up the coast! It’s sooo much fun riding on the back of the little Honda. We rode down all these narrow little back streets in La Jolla and looked at the fancy houses.

And today I spent mainly lying on the couch, recovering from going out yesterday. It’s very very frustrating to know that I will pay for a couple hours of fun with, potentially, a few days of being so tired I can barely move, but oh well, that’s how it is. At least I have a comfy couch to rest on. And QuizUp to amuse me. If you have an i-device or an android device and you enjoy quiz games, install QuizUp (it’s free) and play with me! Search for “kayray” and, from among the multiple kayrays, choose the one with the same picture that’s on the top right corner of my blog here.

Oh, here’s a hat I knit a couple months ago:

    Do you watch Tabletop on youtube? It’s on the Geek and Sundry channel and it’s hosted by Wil Wheaton. In each episode he has three or four guests in and they just sit down to play a game together. I’ve discovered lots of new games thanks to them.

    P.S. I bring it up because they’re the ones who founded International Tabletop Day (this was the 2nd Annual).

    Hi Karen! Yeah I watched a few eps of Tabletop and then I forgot all about it. I should watch more. I didn’t know Wil was responsible for creating International Tabletop Day, cool. Second Annual… no wonder I never heard about it before ;-)
