#2967: How to lose five hours

Play D&D with your niece.

I finally got to try out my "Dungeon Deck" accessories that I bought in 2003. It inserted a nice 6-encounter dungeon in the middle of our session and led to my niece's character getting killed by a doppelganger.

BTW, when giving a sap to a fighter who has never used one, it's a good idea to tell her how to use it. Though getting a critical hit with a thrown sap will work, it's not wise to count on that happening.

Russia after the Bolsheviks, like China after the Cultural Revolution, like Cambodia under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, like Germany under Hitler. Right?

In a sane world, this woman would no longer be able to serve as governor anywhere, because 1) she'd be laughed, ridiculed, and scorned right out of her current office; and 2) would never get more than a handful of votes in any election ever again.

Ah, it's after midnight, and I've got to get to bed soon.

  • #7597: Sunday, and the grass needs to be cut

    Yes, it's mid-April now, and it's been warm, and it rained. Today it rained and it's still wet out there, so no good to cut it right now. So, we'll…
