I surfed this morning, which reminded me how lucky I am to live here.  I don't make all the bucks so I won't be rich, but man, it is pretty beautiful sometimes.  Just as I was bursting with admiration for this place, a HUGE rainbow popped up.  I really don't believe in God, but that was the closest I came to something spiritual in a long, long time.

Now having said that, THIS is crazy!

I hope everyone is well.  Miss you guys.  No homo.

I introduced the wifey to Ticket to Ride board game, then we discovered the app was way easier to get through a game.  Got Europe and Switzerland too, but the OG one is still the best (USA, all the way!).  Apparently there is a Pennsylvania expansion version?

Since Days of Wonder produces some good games, we decided to go all in and get Gang of Four (which we can't play, because we are a gang of two) and we got Pirate's Cove, which we sadly discovered is a 3+ player game.  Oh well.  I taught her Cribbage and Gin, so we can play that too.  Any other suggestions to wet our appetite? Preferably 2+ players?

I have to write 45 grade reports this weekend, which is brutal. This consists of basically writing 500 word explanations of the grades that kids got and how they can improve. I have probably cried about that to you guys in the past. :'(

I watched a pretty good documentary on Amazon Prime the other night.  Salad Days is about the DC hardcore and punk movement in the 80s.  Lots of cool pictures, videos, interviews, and insight about which I was not aware.

The Cubs have made it to the next level of playoffs.  I am cautiously optimistic about their chances, as I have been burned before by getting my hopes up.  I also have to remember that they are, after all, still the Cubs.  You never know, a 107-year-long drought may end this year, making Back to the Future II the best sage of all time!

How many iterations of "Generic Eric" was this song on in high school?  Mordred

Keeping the Action Team alive!

About three weeks ago, I found out that I am going to be a dad.  Our kid is due on April 14.  I am nervous.

Sad the decay of this blog.  Decided to torture myself today.

Whipped Cream.
