I was up relatively early to get to a roller-skating lesson for 8am. Just a 1-hour lesson, but amazing how much that can work you.

At work, I got confirmation that I will be going to Michigan in two weeks, so I got to book all that travel. But yay trip.

I had lunch with ironphoenix, too.

After work, I had dinner with Jex, and got to see Giovanni. He is getting bigger -- but that is what babies do.

Then, after dinner, out to Stittsville for board games, where we played Antike.

I'm home now, and I need to organize and pack for a trip to the 'Gunks, leaving tomorrow morning around 8am. Hopefully the weather will be not-awful.

That was a good day of gaming. Kanban - Driver's Edition (2nd playing) and Tzolk'in - The Mayan Calendar.

If I'm already feeling tired and achy tonight, how's tomorrow morning going to feel? An hour of dance, and then the same evening two hours on roller skates is enough that I am definitely feeling it. And, I took a couple of falls trying things, which I'm sure helps with the creation of some of the aches.

[personal profile] beable suggested playing some heavy games this weekend, so she, [personal profile] foms and I got together to game today. We started with the learning game of Food Chain Magnate (since beable had not played it before), then followed with a full game. I won both handily. After a good dinner at Koreana, we came back and finished the day with Brass, where I came in last, though all the scores were reasonable.

I went out for Chinese food for dinner this evening, my fortune cookie:

You will be traveling to distand lands for business purposes.

Maybe I should by a lottery ticket with the numbers it gave?

Why?

Why is it snowing again? I mean, not just sprinkling, but big heavy flakes accumulating on the ground and everything?

And home

I am home again; well, I arrived last night -- but with flight delays and time change, I didn't get back to the house until after 3am, so just went to bed.

My YVR -> YYZ flight was cancelled. I am rebooked on a YVR -> YOW direct flight, still business class, but not the super-sweet 787 business class that I was going to have on the YVR -> YYZ flight. Oh well. At least I only get home about 1/2 an hour later than expected.

I'm delayed about an hour out of Vancouver, but should still make my connection -- and if not, there's likely another flight I can catch.

I've had a good week of skiing here in B.C. Not a lot of fresh snow, but generally solid base, good skiing, and a fair bit of sun.

Made it to the airport, waited for Michael who's flight was on time, but who's luggage was much delayed. Then successfully made the drive to & check-in in Whistler.

I don't often fly through Calgary.

I've got the week off -- from work, not travel. I'm heading out to Whistler/Blackcomb for my annual week of skiing with Michael.

Home again

I am home again.

Also, the front of the main-floor of the passenger cabin of a 747 looks really odd -- I'm not used to the front of the plane ending in a bulk-head, not in a door.

Though, only for a short (1 week) visit.

FRA -> YYZ -> YOW.
Apparently the Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Toronto sells well, because I've been upgraded to business class for my flight home. I'm not complaining. :) (I also upgraded my YYZ -> YOW segment with Air Canada.)

Arrived!

I landed in Frankfurt having not slept on the plane -- it landed at 7:30am Germany time, which is before bed-time Ottawa time. I have no driven to Hildesheim, napped, and had dinner. I'm still feeling sleepy, though.

I feel like I've done this trip before. More than once.

Yep, I'm off for another week in Germany -- flying to Frankfurt then driving to Hildesheim, because even with the 330km drive, it was easier than trying to faly Hanover, then drive from there.

Hey people, board-games chez-moi this coming Sunday. 1pm and on through afternoon and hopefully evening. RSVPs appreciated, but not required.

Had some fun with, well, if not quite extreme, at least, agressive, snowshoeing with Phil and Rachel. We went up the Luskville Falls trail, with detours, then down Luskville Falls. I did at least three full somersaults during the expedition, one of them fully intentional. :)

[personal profile] ironphoenix and I co-hosted gaming today, afternoon at his place then evening here. We started with Skull and Roses -- a short bluffing game -- then split into two groups. Brass at one table, and something else upstairs. You can guess which one I played in. :)

We hit the Chu-Shing for dinner, then my place, where once again it was an 18xx in one room, and Food Chain Magnate in the other -- this time I was in the Food Chain Magnate game. We didn't quite finish, but I had a clear lead it look almost guaranteed I'd pull out the win.

A good turn out for both afternoon and evening, and it was good to see [personal profile] metawidget out for a game in the evening.

I think that's [personal profile] commodorified, though it might have been many of my other friends, too, and probably has been.

Today was not a wasted day.

I went quad roller-skating. I haven't been on that sort of skate in... decades. Quite probably more than three of them, maybe three and half of them. It was a LOT of fun. Thanks Marisol!

I may have a new thing.
