Forenoon watch, 5 bells (10:39 am)

I got a box from Amazon.com this morning that I didn't order. I thought it was a bit weird, but when I opened it up, I found it was a promotion for their new Grocery Service, full of foodstuffs and a few other items! I was taken aback at the gesture, but also impressed that I'd get on their "valuable customer" list.

Cities and Knights of Catan

Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:06 am)

Last night we played our first game of Cities and Knights of Catan—and it was fun! I'm not quite sure how, but I seem to win around 90% of the Catan games we play, and this one was no exception. The game is radically different from the other Catan games, and introduces Commodities (cloth, coin, and paper), a barbarian horde that invades Catan regularly, and knights that defend against them. I was a bit worried it wouldn't be fun for everyone, but we had a great time playing it, and stayed up until 1am finishing it.
