    nah, Mike Gilmartin who is the co-founder and president. really exciting stuff. they've put so much hard work and passion into it so it's really cool to already see it paying off. here's their site:

    Still very cool! I just saw the first name on the Kickstarter was Metzen and was a bit starstruck as a longtime Blizzard fan boy lol.

    As all my board game group has now had their second shot, I have been able to schedule an in-person board game day (in early June) for the first time since March 2020!

    This is awesome! As many people have realized about their friends/fmily during quarantine, I have realized some of my board game friends are anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers. I knew their political views were drastically different than mine, so I shouldn't have been surprised, but it still comes as a hit to realize that I don't know if I will ever feel all that comfortable to sit down and play a board game with them again. Or at least not nearly as quickly as they'd want. This past year has put people in a new, more dire perspective.

    I dunno if this should be in What’s Making My Day or What’s Grinding My Gears. My friend bought a new treadmill and gave me her old one.

    I’m lying on the couch looking at it now.

  • LWJ&A 5/14/21!!!!!!  I’m literally standing in the lab on a Saturday afternoon in my lab coat, mask, gloves, and eye protection jumping up and down listening to the discussion about masks, listening to experts, knowing who the experts are, and what skepticism means! OMG! I want to play this for every non-scientist friend I know! You guys laid it all out SO well! Thank you!!!! You seriously made my day :)

    Working on the next Ex Mrs Freddy, and came up with an awesome fun little bit for our first official date. We literally decided what the date would be when we first hit it off. She had just ordered an expensive pair of aftermarket Jordan's, and told me our first date needed to just be us going out "new shoe goofing." Doesn't matter where, doesn't matter what we're doing. Just us rolling around flossing our sneakers. Now I always have great sneakers (@Jim can attest to this; he literally saw a fan in person jokingly ask me if I was the crack kingpin of Denton because of how nice my sneakers were. True story.), but I felt like I needed to get something fresh for this one. As luck would have it, a good friend has a pair of really slick Louis Vuitton sneakers that I've always admired, and he is giving them to me. I spend a little extra on nice shoes, but could never justify spending 700 bucks on a pair. I'll take them for free all day, and will gladly spend 20 bucks at the cobbler up the street to have him recondition them. Now that's just the premise for the date; next is the fun part. So a friend and I went out to dinner and drinks earlier this evening, and we decided to stop in at this new vinyl record focused bar just to check it out. I still need to pick new shoe goofing venues, after all.
    Well as I'm discussing this being one of the potential stops on our date, my friend jokes that I need to get them to set up a velvet rope for one of the lounge areas, and have him stand guard as security. That morphs into him telling me he has a perfect suit for it, along with FBI-esque black shades, and an ear piece. He also happens to have a perfect car for chauffeuring people. So long story short, what started as a harmless joke about how I should church up this silly first date has morphed into what I think is going to be a hilarious bit that also allows me and her to get as shitfaced as we want with impunity. So what's making my day today? I planned a really fun and silly date, and it's all coming together perfectly. Will definitely post pics if it goes really well. If not, I'll see you in the grinds my gears thread. :)

    Also, obligatory new boot goofing link:

    Thinking of selling some of my stuff at my work. Not sure on pricing. At least I have a business name and sign.

    I'm on week 9 of my one month sabbatical (ha ha), and ended up on an impromptu mini vacation. My friend rented an airbnb in a real nice part of Oak Cliff Dallas, and told me I was welcome to stay a couple of nights if I wanted. Turns out it is in the same neighborhood as two of my favorite golf courses. Knocking out a quick lunch and mojito in the Bishop Arts District, and then headed to the first course. Grilling and partying tonight, then headed to the next one tomorrow at noon.

    Just flew to NY and seeing my parents for the first time since pre-CoVid. My brothers, sister, nieces and nephews get here over the next days with an official family reunion BBQ on Saturday. This has been emotional and amazing and long overdue!

    This is the nicest compliment I’ve received about my pickles - from an old pal / new neighbor. Dropped off jar yesterday free of charge cause fellow Krauts don’t pay.  :D the splashing part got me

    ”What your pickles do to me:”
