~ Attention. Here’s an update on tonight’s dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight’s mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed “some kind of beef.”~
It’s been a crazy busy week, I still have yet to replace my printer/scanner, and I was too busy at work to mess around with scanning things in while I was there. I have also been scheduled a lot at the restaurant this week so I have not had a lot of free time. On top of all that I celebrated the 31st anniversary of my 21st birthday yesterday, well actually Danielle and I celebrated it on Wednesday night, as I had that night off. We just went out to dinner and had a great time, I had a half dozen east coast Wash-A-Shore oysters, some calamari, and a big-ass 28 oz bone-in ribeye, with wild boar ribs. It was really nice to be sitting in the restaurant as a customer for a change, the meal was great, and the lovely Danielle was even better….but then she always is…!!!
Since I don’t have anything scanned in right now I am not posting any new stuff this time around, but I am sharing a few new things I discovered out there on the interwebs.
First up: “The Observations of the Fox” this guy is awesome, I love his mapwork! Apparently he too was inspired by Dyson Logos. His map drawing tutorials are absolutely beautiful. I already understood most of the techniques he describes, but I am always willing to learn something new. I was so happy to find some new concepts in his tutorials that I will be trying out soon. I am surprised that it took me this long to discover his blog. If you haven’t seen it, go do it now.
Second up: I was checking out Gothridge Manor tonight, always, always great stuff on that blog. I saw a post about Mythoard so I had to go look at it myself, two minutes later I subscribed. I love the whole concept. Basically it is a subscription to a box of random gaming goodies, adventures, minis, dice, etc..that comes to your door once a month. Now, first of all this is just a Beta run, they are doing a test run of the concept this month (which is really smart) to get all the bugs worked out. For $20 you can get the first box, and you are NOT signed up for any additional months or recurring charges. There are only a limited number of the Beta subscriptions available, once they are gone they are gone. I know that something like this is not for everyone, but for me it is! I love the being able to open a box full of random stuff, gaming stuff that I might not ever have purchased before. I do know that a concept like this works well. Mantic Games does a Mystery Box of Miniatures around Christmas time every year, and I have heard the girls at work talk of certain companies that provide the same type of Box full of random “Girl Stuff” make-up, lip gloss, moisterizers, etc…on a subscription basis….and they all love it. Check it out, I think its a great idea, and I hope they succeed…!!!
Thats all I have for now, and it’s already past midnight so now my “Friday’s Mystery Meat” has bled into Saturday….oh well…Have a great weekend.
