(Huh. Some kind of jet just flew over, but it wasn't an F-16. Feh.)
[3:30 p.m. - They've finally started practicing. Woo hoo! Of course it's overcast today, so viewing isn't all that great.]
Last night was Somervillain Game Night, and much fun was had putting together a jigsaw puzzle and playing Munchkin, a very funny card game. Sample conversation from the course of play (paraphrased a bit):
veejane (faced with a level 8 monster that she can't defeat on her own): Okay, I can't beat this monster, except I have a "Cheat" card. If I play that, I automatically defeat the monster.
helvirago: No, it doesn't work that way.
vee: Yes it does. I'm cheating!
hel: No it doesn't. Read the card. You can't just play it on the monster to make it go away. The card only applies to objects that your character could not normally use.
vee: But it says I can cheat...
hel: No, there's an epistemological difference between cheating, and having a card that says "Cheat."
