Hobbies

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by my chosen hobbies.

DC Universe Miniature Game
Ball Park Baseball, 1917 season
Warhammer 40K

And that’s just what I touched this weekend.

I also spent a few days following the livestream from Star Wars Celebration Orlando, got a haircut, went to a baseball game, watched the first episode of the new season of Doctor Who, attended a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark with a live orchestra, Easter Brunch with family, and still feel that I didn’t get everything done that I wanted to this weekend.

For example, I didn’t get to play a game of Warfighter or Phantom Leader.  Or start watching a couple of shows on Netflix/Amazon Video.  Or read comics.  Or read in general.

Ah well.

I’m posting this trailer just because.  You folks who haven’t started watching this really should start, the last season begins this fall.

Deliveries update

The stuff not delivered on Monday, which said it was, arrived on Tuesday.

The stuff delivered today was due for delivery tomorrow (Thursday), except for the stuff that was due today, which did arrive today.

More stuff is scheduled for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Monday.

That is all.

Multiple Hobby Disorder

Wargames, miniatures, role-playing, baseball, all waiting for my attention.

And suddenly I get the urge to play a tabletop GOLF game.

I won’t play at Augusta, which is a course I have in a couple of games.

But the tournament will be called…

THE MASTERS TOURNAMENT!

Weekend Update

3-Day weekend review, by activities:

  • watched Power Rangers
  • played 2 baseball games
  • painted miniatures
  • watched NCAA Final Four games
  • 1st play of Warfighter
  • watching baseball on Opening Day

What to do now, as the Giants opener ends and the Warriors game is on in about an hour or so?

Solitaire Wargaming Organization Revisited

I think I’m going to shift around that list I made, with the print-and-play games at the bottom of the list.

  1. Phantom Leader
  2. Warfighter
  3. Hornet Leader
  4. Gato Leader
  5. Corsair Leader
  6. Philippines Ablaze
  7. Carrier Strike Force

I’m gonna revisit Phantom Leader right away, since I screwed the pooch in the game play of that AAA Site mission.

Evade.  Must remember to have pilots evade.

Warfighter will be next, to break up the 2 aircraft games back-to-back, as I had originally listed.

And all this will be broken up with with table top sports and skirmish games.

Holiday

Nice to have a day away from the office.

Although I had to wait for the new refrigerator to arrive, after which I went to the grocery store to pick up some replacement groceries, like milk and condiments and soda.

I managed to play a baseball game (John D’Acquisto 1974 season, game 5) and catch a few more episodes of Thunderbirds are GO on Amazon streaming.

How’s your day?

Randomness

Edit: I forgot to hit ‘Publish’ on this one late last night (Wednesday).

***

I have way too many sports games at this point.

Hell, I have way too many games, period, at this point.

Thing is, I want to play them all, even ones that I haven’t even read the rules for yet, because at some point they appealed enough to me that I actually shelled out monies for them.

Ack.

***

Arrow was not annoying for the second week in a row.  This may be due to the writers getting better, or the addition of Dinah Drake and Talia al Ghul, both of whom added some substance to the story through their observations on Ollie.

***

Watching the Warriors game, and I STILL am in awe that KEVIN DURANT IS A WARRIOR.

***

I checked out the first half of Legion on FX.  I’ll watch the second half before I make some comment about it.

Super Bowl Sunday!

So that was one helluva game.

To be honest, I was just rooting for the Pats to lose.  But what a comeback.

***

24: Legacy was a lot better than I was expecting it to be.

***

It still takes me quite a while to play a game of Second Season football.  I was distracted by the actually football game, though, and I just finished the 1st quarter at the end of the real game.

***

Game Day food was BBQ pulled pork sliders.
