Our trip to the mall yesterday was prompted by our need to get to a Barnes & Noble because, as I mentioned a week or so ago, John’s family knows us so well that we ended up with two copies of Geek Out. One of them came from Barnes & Noble, so we headed there, receipt in hand, to exchange it. Our plan was to get Lords of Waterdeep, but they didn’t have it, so we got D&D: Wrath of Ashardalon instead. We played it last night, just the two of us, and it was actually really fun (it comes with a big dragon!). We classed it up a bit with dinner (wine, baguette, cheese, apple, honey). Right now I can’t remember if we won (too much wine?)…I think we did. Today, we finally tried Elder Sign. Also fun, but much more complicated to get going, and we lost – the Ancient One devoured us.
To end our nerdy weekend, we are probably going to watch the first couple of episodes of Agent Carter (or possibly watch Star Wars, which I have borrowed from a coworker and will have to give back soon). For now, John is trying to solve an email server problem, and I am going to read my book, I think. I just started A Discovery of Witches, and I think I want to be this character. She went to Oxford for grad school, and the book starts with her in the Bodleian Library, doing research. I’ve been there! Took the tour! And she runs AND she does yoga. She’s also a witch who I think is going to end up in love with a vampire, so maybe I don’t want to be her exactly, but the framework for what I want is there.
