There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

I've been gradually upgrading my DVDs to Blu Rays as well as buying too many books. The good news is that I read all of my books and regularly watch my discs, I don't always get to play my games. shake

1. Limited edition expanded film scores.

2. Planning out the possibility and budget of an in-home A-10C cockpit.

3. Depending on #2, planning out the building of a new PC, something I haven't done (for myself at least) since 1997.

I got the flu two weeks ago, and haven't eaten much since then. I also did not drink any coffee. Yesterday I took a cup for the first time in two weeks, and I hated it. What an awful taste! So today I tried again, and still: coffee now tastes awful for me. I am wondering: should I get a better coffee machine, or swear off coffee altogether?

The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

I use a french press to make coffee and think it makes the best tasting coffee. Generally cheap to buy a small one and if you still hate coffee your not out too much money.

Coincidently, when I get the flu or cold I have to deliberately stop eating my normal foods for fear of not being able to eat and enjoy them again. This has happened to me regarding a number of foods I no longer eat due to eating them while sick and not enjoying them again when I was healthy.

The three M's: Music, Motorcycle, My wife (not necessarily in this order).
But also the house, loan, garden, car, taxes (what kind of a potato made them so high? yuk), water, electricity, insurances, diesel ....
And when all those bills arrive together, sometimes I think: "well, perhaps just skip the boardgame this month".

But since boardgames keep me in a good mood, I rarely do! laugh

One of the ones Clooney advertises made by a pretty evil company... that's right I've further monetised my domestic realm by bringing a pay by the mug coffee outlet into my home and locking myself into a deal with the devil. In my defence it was late, the coffee is convent/fun/better than I'm used to and I'm a mug. robot

I wish I had a game budget. By June, we'll have two kids 2 years old and younger so any money that could possibly spent towards games is going towards turning our bonus room into a daycare room for when our daughter's current daycare teacher starts coming to our home to care for both kids.
