Sadness...

There was ASL and my mind conspired against me....

Let me explain...

Friday, I was all set to go to ASL at Bob's house. I was looking forward to meeting the other guys (usually it's just Bob and me or sometimes Rob R. or Jess W). Then I saw the forecast: snow. OK, I thought. Slow and careful. No problem. I left at 4:30 to go to grab a bite for the family and I to eat and skidded the van 3 times there and back. It was like 2 miles round trip. I'm thinking. OK, I might get there OK, but at midnight, am I going to be so tired I can't drive this safely (especially with heavy snow in the forecast)? I cancelled. Of course, it stopped snowing up in North Spokane around 7:30 pm. I was sad.

Still, the next day, I put the snow tires on my van. More traction....mmmmm....

Hopefully that doesn't happen again.

I am going to have a serious jones to play ASL here over the holidays. I can see it now. Frothing at the mouth, convulsions, irritability, nervous tics...

OK maybe not, but if nothing else, I need to get a VASL game going in the very near future.... Certainly before January when we are likely to resume F2F games.

Well, you got farther than I did. I basically got home after work Friday night and decided that I wasn't going anywhere. It's a bummer too, because I had a fistful of good Bulge scenarios picked out. Instead I'm getting my Bulge fix right now with "Wacht am Rhein 2" on the table. It's quite a monster.
