    Those are socks of AWESOMENESS. :bolian:

    I bought soda and doughnuts, because apparently, my poor eating habits know no limits.

    I'd wear those socks.

    So would you. You all would.

    That... is a really peculiar pairing. Testing to see which one cleans better? :lol:

    I sure hope the two aren't connected.

    Well thinking of the toliet made me think of crap which made me think of food so I got hungry. I was in a weird mood that day.

    Whew. I was worried this was going to take a bit of a disturbing turn.

    The latest Lincoln movie and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns part two on DVD. I tried watching Batman last night and actually got lost after ten minutes. I guess I need to pull out my DVD of part one which I last watched when I first got it back in November, and re-watch it.

    Also, groceries, and bathroom cleaning supplies.

    A custom made Padres T-shirt to match the Giants one I bought the other day.

    (Both made with the name and number of my favorite player of all time, Dave Dravecky. He played for the Padres and Giants back in the 80's.)

    Received my 2 disc DVD of The Hobbit in the post yesterday. I watched it as soon as I got it and I actually enjoyed it more this time then I watched it in the cinema.

    Hubby and I just bought the board game "Dominion". We haven't played games in ages and we're looking forward to starting again. We nearly bought "Munchkin Quest" which just looked like silly fun, but we decided to go with the game we had played recently with friends.

    Anyone have any suggestions for board games that 2 (and more) can play?

    So what happens when your friends buy the board game "Federation"? :guffaw:

    Oh. Does that mean I'll need to find new friends?...:)

    You have SO come to the right place.

    Hubby and all his friends are hard-core board-game geeks.
    Some of the one our group plays A LOT:
    -Settlers of Catan (there's also a Star Trek Catan, which is awesome). This is a great game, but expensive as it's not worth playing unless you get the expansions.
    -Battlestar Galatica. Based on the nuBSG, role playing cooperative game. The guys love it. Needs 4+.
    -Pillars of the Earth. Based on book/minseries. Building a cathedral, earning money & points.
    -Power Grid. A very cool game, much cooler than building power plants should be.
    -Agricola. Easy to learn. Lots of fun building; hard to master.
    -Puerto Rico. Fun for groups. Tons of little fiddly things but deceptively complex.
    -San Juan, card game version of Puerto Rico. I kick ass at this game.
    -ANY of the Munchin card games are fun as hell.
    -Pandemic. A cooperative group game. Stop the epidemics spreading around the world. Challenging game where everyone must work together to win.
    -Runebound. Fantasy fighting board game. Some D&D influences. Fun and easy but takes HOURS to play.
    -Carcasonne. A fun, tile-placement building game. Easy, portable with bright colors.
    -Princes of Florence. Tile building/bidding game.
    For big groups of 6 or more, BANG! is a favorite. It's a card game, based on Italian Spaghetti-Westerns.

    If you're looking for strictly two person games, try:
    Lost Cities (very pretty card game)
    Carcasonne 2or more
    San Juan--2 or more
    Kingdoms 2 or more(tile laying, scoring points in columns; Beowolf is the expanded, prettier version)
    Boom-O. 2 or more. Slightly similar to Uno, only with bombs exploding in your face. You know, as you do....
