Boardgame Overdrive

This was my living room the day after Xmas. We'd just finished playing a 7 1/2 hour game of Twilight Imperium. What a game and what a day!

I've been really fortunate to be able to play a lot of board games so far this year. I've gotten bigger in the hobbie since last year. I don't think I'll be buying as many games as I did in 2016 but my goal is o start playing more of each one!

But maybe I'll save these bigger ones for every season. : )

Top 10 Super powers

Everyone thinks about it. Today I'm going to give you my list!

10) Invulnerability

The Power of Luke Cage would be cool. Never being afraid of anyone ever again!

9) Weather Control

Imagine this, it's the dead of winter but around your house, it's the middle of June. THAT'S what I'm talking about!

8) Flight

I think everyone wants this power. I got to admit, I've always thought about what would happen if I took off in the middle of a crowd!

7) Telekinesis

The power of the Force essentially. With the ability to move things around, there'll be a lot more of me sitting on the couch for sure!

6) Teleportation

Wanna be in the mountains one moment, then on a sandy beach the next? With this power you could go anywhere, anytime!

5) Precognition

Knowing what'll happen before it happens. Getting a glimpse at the future....and placing a bet on it!!!

4) Mind Reading

Wanna know what people really think of you? This power would be a duel edged sword at times since you may be hurt by what others think!

 3) Healing

How about the ability to heal others? That'd be pretty cool!

2) Super Intelligence

Ever after seeing the movie "Limitless" I've always wondered how awesome it would be. The things you could think of. The things you could do!

1) Time Travel

When first making this list, this wasn't #1 but quickly won out when I thought of the possibilities. The ability to travel in time and see every moment from your lifetime and beyond! I just couldn't pass that up!

Any cool ones I missed? Let me know!

Top 5 sicknesses I hate to have!

Ever since New Year's it seems, I've been sick. It doesn't happen much but I hate it when it does! (then again, who LIKES being sick in the first place) So today I thought I'd give you my Top 5 sicknesses I hate to get!

 5) Flu

I hate it, but it's last on the list because it usually only lasts 2 days and is easy to shake. In fact, the last time I threw up? Was almost 24 years ago. I hated it so much, I vowed to control myself from doing it and I've gotten a pretty good steel stomach now because of it.

4) Cold

Never fun, unavoidable year round, the cold is always a bad thing to have. Especially at night when you can't even breathe. Bad stuff!

3) Headache

These can come at any time and they come quick. Usually when you're away from your house or in an area where NO ONE has Tylenol. And a really bad one can put you down!

2) Cough

Now we're getting into the ones I REALLY hate. Coughing sucks. I hate it. It keeps you up all night and can go on for WEEKS with NO END. There's only one sickness I hate more...

1) Sore Throat

I dread these! Every time I get one I go to the doctor for ANYTHING they can give me. (which usually only ends up being a bill and a pat on the back) And though I hate coughs, a sore throat is WAY worse.

That;s my top 5, what's yours?

Thrill of Victory/Agony of defeat

Ohio State fan mocks Alabama fans

College Football recap

Now that the National Championship is over, it's time to collect my final thoughts on the season. Let's start with the big game.

I (like a lot of people) thought Alabama was going to win again, simply because of who they were. Turns out I was wrong! Clemson played a strong game and deserved the win. They fought hard in what was a great Title game. The Refs did well too so nothing can be blamed on them.

I never thought Clemson had it in them though. Even after beating Ohio State last week.

If you recall, earlier this season my Tigers came close to taking them down. We lost by a touchdown but it was still a close game.

As for my Tigers, well things didn't end on a good note. I knew with an injured quarterback, we had no chance against Oklahoma. We did better than I thought we would but looking at 2017, it doesn't look like we're getting any better.

We have some great defensive players leaving. Our QB situation DOES NOT look bright and we still don't have a receiver who can catch the ball when it's thrown at him right square in the chest! I don't know what Gus can do to improve the Offense and replace certain Defensive roles but we have a leaky ship heading in to 2017 and we could sink fast.

But I can wait until the fall. I'm ready for Spring Training to come around!!

Fanboy Expo 2017

Just to let you all know, I will be once again heading up to Knoxville this June for the Fanboy Expo. One of my favorite comic cons (even though the dealers have gone downhill a little over the years)

This year we're going because Megan wants to see WWE superstar Sting and the Pink Power Ranger, which was her favorite one from the TV show. I like visiting TN, so I'm going solely for the experience.

Anyway, it should be fun!

Nursery Crhymes

Just to let you know. Murder is Served is doing my 5th written dinner theater, Feb 24-Mar 18 and it's sure to be a good one!

Tickets are on sale now at www.murder-isserved.net and they're sure to sell out.

The show is about which Nursery rhyme killed Mother Goose! It's an idea I had a long time ago and was supposed to be the first play ever written by me, but during the creative process, I got stuck and went with something else.

I hammered out all the wrinkles this past summer though and gave it to the company to perform. So glad it's finally happening now!
