A Weekend Off

Is anyone familiar with the phrase "society is only three meals away from anarchy?"  Well, this weekend, I could have adapted it to "I am only one woman away from adolescence "  The Mrs was away visiting her sister, so I was obliged to have some folk round, get some pizzas and beer in and generally overindulge.

Not entierly a write off hobby wise, I slapped some more paint on my GZG 15mm figures and started some terrain to go with them.  It's been a really busy, but surprisingly positive week, but my overall painting time has really suffered.  BTW, if you don't see him posted by next week, can someone remind me to finish the Samurai for Curt's Painting Challenge?  I'm nowhere near my points target, mainly because sci-fi doesn't count, but I want to get Curt's Ronin off to him.

On the plus side, I finally got round to catching up on a few movies; Dredd (decent, really liked the actor playing Dredd, effects were spot on,) Prometheus (what am I missing here?  Fail to see what all the fuss was about) and Ted (really? Nice set up, but a bit too safe for my liking, a real missed opportunity.)

Lastly, I finally managed to complete the final Shadows of Mirkwood quest in the Lord of the Rings LCG.  It's only taken seven months to do (they're really hard, honest,) but it means I can finally start on the Khazad-dûm expansion.


  1. Sounds like an opportunity not to be missed, "while the mrs is away it time to play"

  2. I too need to sort a Ronin...
    Dredd, haven't seen it but want to.
    Prometheus - wanted to see it, but was put off by all the negative hype.
    Ted - haven't heard of that one!
    Hope you enjoyed you re-discovered 'adolescence'! ;-) Cats away, Mice will play... Last time the misses did this I blew up the stereo - had it on too loud! ;-)
