Busy week

This week is going to be fairly busy, but good. I went walking last night with Erin & Chris. Then we went and got some free gelato that was delicious! I had the Cupido which was dark chocolate and hazelnuts. Yum, yum, yum!

Tonight - Taking Travis to the airport and then hiking
Wednesday - #5 is coming over to play Guitar Hero
Thursday - Laundry and hopefully more walking... woo-hoo! :-)
Friday - 80s Dancing with Ron & Shane
Saturday - Movie party with L&N
Sunday - Dumplings(?) and football, cleaning up the apartment.

The following weekend, I'll be seeing the mystery man (MM). So, the apartment must be cleaned since it will be his first time seeing it. So NEXT week is probably looking like this:

Monday - Cleaning, walking
Tuesday - Hiking
Wednesday - Cleaning & Games
Thursday - Dinner with MM at the beach
Friday - Dinner/Drinks with MM and friends

Somehow, sometime, over the next couple weeks, I need to squeeze in research on Paris and Germany. I've only picked out a few places to see while we're there. It's a little worrisome. And surprisingly, really, only a little. A couple years ago, I think I would've been much more stressed about not having more of an itinerary, but I guess I can take heart in that this won't be my last trip, so this might be just a fun, adventurous trip!

Hello. I only recently found your blog while looking for other gamers (board games, mainly) :). I saw this post about going to Germany and Paris and thought I'd offer an opinion.

When I was younger, I lived in southern Germany for several years, and the one thing that I really remember from that time was the churches. If this is your first time visiting Europe, even if you are not really interested in religious art or icons, I recommend seeing at least a few of the older churches particularly the ones in the smaller towns or the larger, more historical, churches.

The artistry and the clear sense of the age of the churches over there make them something to see and, more importantly, experience.

Hope you enjoy your trip. :)

Thanks for the tip!! I'll be sure to check it out!

What area are you in? Around Southern California?

Unfortunatley, no. I live in south-eastern New Mexico. Recently moved from Maryland, and love the weather here in the southwest sooo much more than that out east. :)

I'll be opening my own game store, hopefully within a month, so I'm always looking for tips on what are and what are not good games. :) I've been a gamer for... ugh... 25 years (has it been that long?) lol

Ah, too bad. Since you're a long time gamer, I will assume you know about Boardgamegeek.com and the BGG.con in November. It's so much fun. I'd highly recommend it if you haven't been before!!

Congrats on opening a FLGS! BGG has tons of info about games. Are you going to specialize in a certain kind? Euros, wargames, miniatures, or a mix?

Also, you can do a user search by area on the geek. You might be able to find gamers that way. I don't think I know any gamers out there...
