Phew, that was a productive afternoon. Pulled up all the weeds and dead mulch in half of our side garden, plus pruned a bunch of the dead fronds from the palm trees, then put weed mat down and fresh mulch. The other half will have to wait for another day because a) I'm out of steam, b) there's way more weeds than the half I did, and c) the garbage bin is full.

Beanie's in a kind of awkward snoozing position and is apparently very dubious about me taking his photo.

First game of Warhammer Underworlds with the new Gnarlwood rules, Ironsoul's Condemnors vs. the Shadeborn! I used Battle Mallet's suggested Nemesis deck (https://www.battle-mallet.com/nemesis-decks/) for the Condemnors because it turned out the one I had put together a while back sucked, and it was very fun, but ended up very one-sided, oops. It was partially due to some lucky rolling on my part, but we called it half-way through the second turn out of three total because I'd wiped out @yayKM's warband entirely and the score was already 9-5. Fighter of the match goes to Brodus Blightblade who single-handedly killed two of the four enemy warriors outright (the first one in the first activation of turn one) and did two out of three damage to a third one that allowed me to ping that third one for an extra one damage to kill him. I really like the new rule changes for activations specifically, and the Nemesis format is great.our house darkroom gaming games workshop warhammer underworlds ironsoul's condemnors nethermaze the shadeborn gnarlwood champions of dreadfane

And now that I've replaced the stock hi-hat I have a spare cymbal, so I've hooked up that up at the very right as a second crash cymbal! 😁

I've started doing some more advanced stuff on the drums and some of it involves using the hi-hat pedal to open and close the hi-hat, but the stock hi-hat pedal that comes with the drums is fairly mushy and I was having a lot of trouble getting it to register when doing fast switches between open and closed (it's perfectly fine just when it's fully closed or open, just not so much when switching between the two in rapid succession). I did some research and Roland actually have a hi-hat that you mount on a regular acoustic hi-hat stand and it physically moves up and down as a regular hi-hat would. I ordered both the cymbal and the stand earlier in in the week and it arrived today, and man it feels nice to play!

EPIC DINNER SUCCESS. Followed up by ice cream with strawberries that needed to be eaten because they're VERY ripe.

Starting off 2023 right: doing a pulled pork. Related: every part of me smells like wood smoke right now.
