Card Game

Last night we cracked open Once Upon A Time, along with the expansion, Dark Tales. This was a fun game to play! The object of the game is to make up a fairy tale with the cards you are dealt, and end it with the ending printed on your "Happy Ever After" card (you only get one). As you tell your story, the other players will interrupt you and take over, trying to fit the story to their ending.

My only gripe about this game is the fact that all the elements are printed on the bottom 25% of the card, so they're very difficult to hold in your hand and still view each of the cards. They really need to print something on the edge identifying each card. Other than that, it's an excellent game promising loads of fun and some...uh...interesting stories, too.

Slam on Music
Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:06 am)

Last weekend was very busy, but part of it was our annual company picnic. My boss asked to have some music playing in the background, over the PA system, but nobody had a decent CD to play. One of my cow-orkers offered to share his music collection from his hard drive, but when I looked at it there were so many different genres and bands (many of which I never have listened to) I didn't know what would be appropriate to play without offending someone. When I brought this up, he said "I have a bunch of country on there.." to which I responded "I know, that's exactly what I mean."

I was in rare form, I don't usually have something that funny come to me that quickly, but it was perfect.
