Hey Joel, why were you late to the last ever GeekOut pre-meet? Well I’d like to blame it all on the traffic, getting into town was something of a nuisance because of all the extra people trying to get somewhere, and yes, Frankwell carpark was rather full of shoppers. But to be honest, my tardiness began well before then, I was held prisoner in my own home, emotionally blackmailed and manipulated into staying put for as long as possible…
Pre-Meet – The Pour House
Non-alcoholic espresso martini, good stuff. Pre-meet was far more relaxed than average, nobody desperate to break out an early game, mostly conversation and relaxation, a little light commiseration on the end of an era but generally a cheerful face turned toward the future.
After last month I still hadn’t sorted the games out in my car, thanks to Callum for helping me out with that one, took us a while to load up the trolley and there were a couple of hairy moments with Zombie Dice and magic cards almost falling into the boot of the car and chaos ensuing but we made it through. Now, the future of the boot of my car looks even worse, as it is overburdened with parting/christmas presents. But seriously, thank you to everyone.
I had an early christmas present to play with, and I did… but honestly I got thoroughly stuck into a cycle of Resistance and visceral rage. Walk away, socialise, talk to people for a while, be ready to go again, get my feelings hurt by people I thought I trusted… Oh and Magic! Played some Magic.
There were hugs, plans were made, presents were exchanged… and then I guess we left! Wow, this one went really fast.
Oh yes, I didn’t forget about this one! In January you pledged yourself to certain geeky targets for the year, but how many other groups will hold you to your word? New Years Resolutions are so much more meaningful when they come back to haunt you in December.
READ THE CARDS, THEY TELL NOT YOUR FUTURE, BUT YOUR PAST, BECAUSE PAST IS ALL THAT REMAINS!!
