Weekend Edition #5

Pretty lazy Sunday today. Sara’s been on an AFD so when I got up I rejoined the Rooster Teeth Extra Life live stream and watched that until it finished at 1pm. The figures I posted yesterday ended up being incorrect, they discovered the error pretty early and had a correct running total most of the stream. They ended up raising just over $1.2 million, which is absolutely incredible. They’re the first team to ever raise over a million dollars.

So my friend Jamie has decided he really wants to do a fantasy football podcast. I think having an English take on a typically American pass time will be really fun so I offered to help him with the behind the scenes stuff and to occasionally co-host. I think his current plan is to bring in rotating co-hosts using people from our league and his other league as well. I’ll be sure to post more about it when its up and running.

I watched a couple of rules explanation videos for Gloomhaven today as well as having a read of the rulebook. Its a big game and is going to take some getting


Sorry, watching the Colts. Anyway yeah, Gloomhaven, its going to take some getting used to but once we’ve started playing I think it’ll all come together.

I cooked some delicious quesadillas for myself this afternoon, just kind of through some stuff together and they came out great. As I was eating Romes, the neighbours cat, came and sat by the back door wanting to come hang out with me. He waited very patiently while I ate but as soon as I let him in he pretty much sat on my face and fell asleep until I moved to get a drink. He’s very adorable most of the time.

I considered going to the pub later to hang out with Sara while her game in on but I’m three weeks into my month of not drinking and today I’ve really fancied a nice cold one so I’m not going to put myself in temptation but sitting at the bar. Technically my thirty days will be up a week Tuesday but I’ll probably wait until the end of that week so I can enjoy a couple of beers without having to get up for work the next day. It’ll end up being thirty five days or so when I do end up having a drink.

The Colts are looking pretty good against the Steelers right now so I’m going to focus on the game. Hope you’ve all had a good weekend, I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
