Sure we're not addicted to BGG; we can stop any time we want, right? So prove it here and now, by telling us all the interesting and varied things you did while BGG was down for the last few days...

I'll get the ball rolling.

Did up my lecture notes for the next two classes I'm supposed to teach, exercised, did a menu plan for the next couple weeks, cleaned my living room more thoroughly than it's been cleaned since my son (3 years old next month!) was born.

Oh, and I taught my 8 year old how to play Dominion and she LIKES it - yay!!

I worked on the army ref cards for the Babel13 expansion of Neuroshima Hex! Thanks to BGG being down I got them almost finished and ready to post proof copies for BGG members to check.

Thanks Aldie for the break so I could actually get some work done instead of wasting too much time here!
