Happy Vignettes

A few enjoyable bits from this weekend:

  • Friday night, I attended a small gathering of guys to celebrate my friend Craig’s birthday by playing Axis & Allies and Acquire until late in the night. Craig’s wife graciously organized the evening for him starting two months in advance, and then scampered off to allow the testosterone to course freely and without inhibition through the house. I took a drubbing at both games, but still had a grand time.
  • We enjoyed a delightful lunch with the Barnards and the Hulls on Sunday afternoon, with great conversation, much hilarity, good food, and several intense rounds of Speed Scrabble, which I enjoy much more (and at which I’m much better) than normal Scrabble. Thanks for a great time, y’all!
