Birthday Stuff  

First, I'd like to say thanks to everyone who gave me best wishes on my birthday Monday. I have some more reading and video watching (The Invention Of Air, which was one of the presents from [info]starmalachite, looks particularly interesting.)

I also have a few more games to try out when I get a chance. I'm already a bit familiar with Kingsburg (obviously,[info]starmalachite picked up the hint when I mentioned that it was on my to-get list while we were playing a game with[info]thelongshot's copy). Between the Shore Leave dealers' room and online orders, I also picked up Collateral DamageColosseum, and The Bill of Rights, but haven't had a chance to try them out yet (partly because they look like they need 4-5 players to be really worthwhile).

Also, there was good news and bad news about the hard drive/DVD recorder combo unit I ordered for[info]starmalachite's birthday/anniversary. The good news was that the delivery-date estimates (mid to late August) were apparently prepared according to Montgomery Scott's Guide to Miracle-Working. The bad news is that the DVD part of the unit appears to be nonfuctional -- if the reboot recommended by tech support doesn't work, we'll have to return it (fortunately, Target's web page says that the return can be done at a brick-and-mortar store).

Hope you got our phone message? We'd like to take you out to dinner, but need to coordinate things...unfortunately, we're out of town the next weekend and the whole first week of August. Would a very late birthday dinner do?

Or sometime during the week, but Starmalachite says you get home late...(then again, so does Jason, when he's not sick as he is today).

We're going to be at Confluence this weekend (getting back into town Tuesday, but probably not doing anything Tuesday night but unpack and collapse). We can coordinate for sometime in August, or with a day or two of advance notice I can arrange to get home early during the week.
