From the depths of packing, I post at thee.


Ye gods.  The moving truck comes on Wednesday morning, and we are at that finely balanced moment  where one regularly goes to find something, only to discover it is packed up, while at the same time still having a horrifying amount of stuff to pack up.  Yesterday I invoked the awesome power of Paterfamilius, and the whole bunch of us got out of the house and went down to Kensington market.  A good long walk, some excellent Pho, and a supper of fresh bread, good cheese, and assorted farm veggies later, sanity has been restored.

Good soup is a mighty thing.

Geek progress (I think understandably) has been limited, but I have managed to pick up  bunch of stuff for the Acadian project.  I had an order come in from Skip at Legends in Time, and am now well-supplied with Brits, provincials, and a variety of militia and civilians.  I also picked up some 4Ground buildings (log cabins and New England settler homes), and a tidy little cordouroy bridge.  I'll need some (i.e., lots) of trees), but I've got plenty of stuff to keep me busy.

Terrorist, or freedom fighter? You decide.

I also took the Cub down to the game store, and we splurged on a few X-Wing ships.  He had a little cash, and bought himself a blister each of the HWK-290 and Z-95 Headhunter.  The latter has a bit of a history with us, as he's also got the LEGO set ;)  With the Rebels expanding their fleet, it was obviously necessary for the Imperials to match them, and I picked up a Firespray, because Boba Fett.  Sadly, these will get packed up until we get out to Halifax, but I'm looking forward to getting them on the table.

Yes, Lando, he's cooler than you.

Probably going to be at least a week or so before my next post.  Our stuff, as I mentioned, moves out Wednesday, and we'll probably take a few days to drive out; with kids and cats in the car, power-driving seems like a poor idea.  Next post will be from Hali.  Wish us luck!

  5. Best of luck with the move my good man.

  6. Good luck! It's been an honour playing against you. Hopefully one day I'll have that honour again. :)
