I am what is wrong with the internet.

In the last hour, I have added "teh", "gotta", and "zomg" to my MS Office dictionary.

Getting back into the swing of things, a fun weekend behind me, and entering my second week of training with (zomg!) actual training. Not that all the reading I did last week was time wasted, I can tell you I needed it, but it's nice to have something a bit more hands-on.

Lunch break is short and Herfy's was every bit as delicious as I had feared. Less dangerous to my checking account than my waistline, too.

If you find time in your life to sit down and play a board game, and you should make the sound decision to play RoboRally, I would recommend the following time-saving measures.
1)Play without the option cards, or with their use sharply limited (like 1-per player)
2)Limit the number of boards sharply. They can take longer than you plan.
3)Be prepared to change the "final goal" if your game goes long.

If you want a shorter game, I was recently introduced to Fluxx. It's much much easier to learn than it appears. It's amazingly fun.

Most anything that says "Catan" in the title is also good.

And here you have seen me drift topic for no apparent reason. Another reason that I am what is wrong with the internet. Now excuse me while I use company bandwidth to look at pictures of cats.

Yes, if only some self-sacrificing individual would keep you away from the internet, things would be so much better. :)

I've never been to Herfy's. It sounds like I should think carefully about whether I want to start such an addiction...since I don't have five flights of stairs to climb. There's a small Italian deli downstairs where I work, and that's bad enough.

Anyway, hope your training went well. And it's great that you get to have training...I had to learn the software from the outdated documents which I was supposed to update...and I walked uphill in the snow both ways to get there. ;)
