⊗ So Hal-Con was full of awesome (minus a minor kerfuffle - which was only a minor one for me, and basically boiled down to: too many tickets sold, too many people, fire marshal refused to let anyone else in, but I was already in so, I was all right).
⊗ I'm just all geeked out - I want all the new shinny geek things I was sort of introduced to at the Con.
⊗ Talked to the lovely people who run The Boardgame Cafe, and am very determined to make it there. There are many games I want to play, and this seems like a good way to test drive them before I commit. I very much want to try Gentlemen Thieves (I talked to the lady who did the art for it - she's also super awesome) as it's - thieves! And cards! And storytelling in a steam punk setting and -- I should have just bought the game right there but I did not.
⊗ Back to the grind now, and trying to get back to a routine. The cold (which is hanging around) is making running hard, as is nasty weather. I signed up for the running club at work, and am going to try and run on my lunch breaks a few times a month. I have to start prepping because ... I run the Bluenose 10K in May. (I'm aiming to run the half marathon in 2015. Baby steps.)
⊗ this could be the worst movie in the world, and I think I will still pledge my undying love to it.
Because. Irish. Mismatched Cops.
Aliens. I'm all over that. (I have heard that it is in fact NOT the worst movie in the world, but actually rather decent.)
Also, in a somewhat related let me pledge my love to something thing - The Worlds End
is out next week on DVD but out digitally today! You should go forth and watch if you have not, because it's wonderful and also made me heartrendingly sad at points. I think I might try and Cornetto trilogy film fest it next weekend.
