One of my least favorite things is when game reviewers spend all their time on rules. I tried to avoid that and instead wanted to share why I like this card game. Hope you enjoy the short video

Our Last Day in Eugene

One of the spots on all the ‘lists’ of travelling to Eugene was the Fifth Street Public Market. Since we’re not really shoppers, we figured it be fun to see but it wasn’t a priority. We were able to fit in on our last day in Eugene and got some gifts for folks back home. […]

If you know me, you know I love beer. There is no way I could spend time in Eugene, Oregon and not go to Ninkasi Brewing Company.  There was a lot of beer to be had in Oregon, and this is really the only brewery that stood out as truly amazing compared to what I […]

Dachsund

Being partially colorblind, whenever I see a skein of yarn that I’m pretty sure I actually see all its colors, I get excited. Wasn’t planning on buying yarn this trip, but this beautiful ‘madtosh’ at Soft Horizons in Eugene changed my mind. I’ve already picked out a pattern on Ravelry for it too.

Edam

Gouda is one of my go-to cheeses. I told a group of Automatticians that Gouda was probably my ‘desert island’ cheese because it’s good in almost every context. I normally can’t get Edam back at home, but I knew it was similar to Gouda. When I saw some in the cheese counter at Kiva grocery […]
