Light at the End of the Tunnel
I've been silent on the blogging front for the last two weeks as gaming and painting has been interrupted by a severe case of real life - sickness and final exams coexisting in a tight space with a list of "honey dos". We did get together at Curt's for two games of Formula De, and damn it if I didn't win the second race in Brazil on the last corner having trailed everyone else by 1/2 a lap for the whole game!
I spent Easter weekend deep praying at the shrine of the porcelain goddess with a nasty stomach bug. We had to phone the butcher to tell them to sell our leg of lamb to another customer (sniff, sniff) and Easter dinner for me was plain eggs (and the first solid food I'd kept down for 2 days). Back at work on Monday I was almost un-wobbly when I walked into a nasty head cold. That is fortunately mostly over but it was a stinker!
I had students writing exams on the 22nd and 24th and I'm in the home stretch on marking - with Spring and Summer semesters (when I have no classes) in sight! I've lots of interesting stuff on plan for May and June, but I am going to be coy on that front for now.
