2010 in review
I guess this is my 200th post. I was intending to write something yesterday, on 1/1/11, for a 200th post, but ended up playing the boardgame Agricola with Tom Nowell and Becky Smith for hours, and checking errata for a recent Ars Magica book. Fortunately they were prety minor for my chapter, but it is depressing that I always miss something it seems! Anyway, a very Happy New Year to you all. Mine is going well, nearly three weeks now off the fags this time, and I’m recovering from my illness that left me wiped out before and over Christmas — I slept most of it!
And now from WordPress, this arrived this morning. I have just posted it, I never wrote it!
