Seattle Cosmic rocks

We went to a Seattle Cosmic meet-up tonight and had a really great time. It was like finding a safe little place where you can get together and smoke crack and know that the cops are never going to bust you no matter how high you get, except we were playing strategy games. We got in three games between 7:30 and midnight, including one with the infamous "Alex" of Board Game Geek (he who wrote the "best opening strategies" article - a world-ranked Puerto Rico player). I'll write more about in on the seattle_rico site (for those who care), but basically, it was a very good evening and I'll be encouraging my friends to go to Yahoo and get on the list.

Actually, I've got to say that it was very funny that everyone noticed that we were new, but those who asked asked shadowdaddy how he'd heard about the group ... as if a female wouldn't actually be the driving partner in this enterprise. Oh, and there was a guy there who has studied Gaelic and he actually knew what my name meant (as well as the difference between Irish Gaelic and Manx Gaelic). It was exciting for me!

Tomorrow I'm going to work for a few hours (in preparation for the big presentation I'm doing Wednesday), then (finally) going to see "1984." It's apparently sold out, so I'm not sure if I'll actually get to go with djcynic or not - hope she got her tickets already!
