So, as I mentioned last week, I am recovering from someone pulling old metal pieces of my face out and putting in the first new metal bits into my face—an ongoing process that will end in (deep breath) August. Until then, I'm eating yoghurt, Jell-O, applesauce, scrambled eggs, rice pudding... you get the idea. At … Continue reading Tabletop Tuesday — Throwing it Together (or… “I can barely keep awake…”)

Tabletop Tuesday — Replayability (Or, “Second Verse, oh, hey wait, this is different…”)
I realize I'm late with this post today, but in my defence, I had a bunch of my face torn out (on purpose, part of my bionic jaw went "sproing!") and I'm not eating solid foods yet and I also trucked my butt across the city to give a writing class a chat—via OC Transpo, … Continue reading Tabletop Tuesday — Replayability (Or, “Second Verse, oh, hey wait, this is different…”)
Tabletop Tuesday — Supplemental… (Or, “Maybe if we bought a new bookshelf?”)

Tabletop Tuesday — Paint the Roses (or, “Wait, this is a logic puzzle!”)
A while back, I posted about games I thought were better online (specifically, games we played via BoardGameArena, which is our go-to), and last night, our board-gaming friends met up virtually again and we tried out a new game, Paint the Roses. And let me tell you, even after one game, I know this is … Continue reading Tabletop Tuesday — Paint the Roses (or, “Wait, this is a logic puzzle!”)
One Week until we get Stuck With You!
Time seems to be simultaneously faster than ever and also beyond molasses-in-winter thanks to the ongoing never-ending-pandemic, but somehow, next week is the official release of Stuck With You. I know. How? If you don't know what I'm talking about, let's start with the blurb, shall we? Two frenemies become lovers in this story of … Continue reading One Week until we get Stuck With You!
