Today is the last day in the office, finished it off with a chorizo, cheese, and pickle bagel from the A.P. Bakery that opened up right around the corner from the office, and hot damn was it good. I got a croissant to have with my coffee and that was delicious as well.
Today we went for a walk from Bondi to Clovelly and then played lawn bowls! I haven't played lawn bowls in so long, definitely well prior to COVID hitting. We were a bit iffy on the finer points of the scoring but I THINK we won. 😅
I also took a handful of "proper" photos on the walk and posted them to Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/albums/72177720311505668
Nothing exciting to report food-wise yesterday, but today's paid-for-by-work food was dinner at Meccah Bah at Darling Harbour (https://meccabah.sydney/functions-and-events/).
Because there were 39 of us all up (!) we did the $79 set menu. The starters were the bread and trio of tips, falafels, lamb sigara boureks, and North African meatballs, we could choose which main we wanted (I got the spiced halloumi pizza) and then we got a selection of desserts to share.
The whole meal was absolutely incredible and I am stuffed to the gills right now. I also had my first margarita because several people expressed surprised that I'd not had one before. It was... fine, but definitely reinforced my stance of not paying for cocktails if I'm paying for it because MAN are they not worth it. 😛
Post-work Kill Team in the office again! This time we went back to the Compendium teams, Death Guard versus Adeptus Sororitas with a fireteam of Sisters Repentia. I lost 15-11, but almost entirely due to forgetting about my damn TacOps. 🙄 It likely would have been at least a draw had I remembered them, if not an outright win.
That being said, player of the match definitely goes to my leader who faced down this entire corridor of Sisters and ended up killing ALL of them. He was down to 1 wound left in the very last turn, and was let down by some extremely poor rolling on my part and ended up getting killed contesting an objective.
Kill Team tonight, my Voidscarred versus the Elucidian Starstriders. I lost yet again, 13-10, though in my defence I'd never actually played against the Starstriders before so didn't have a handle on what they were like and boy do they have some unpleasant tricks. I also keep underestimating just how far stuff can move in a given turn and so fucked up the positioning of my troops on more than one occasion, and as per usual I completely forgot about all their equipment.
And after work, an introductory game of Kill Team for one of my co-workers! He'd never played before so we only got through two turns since I was explaining the rules as we went. Play of the match went to Adrenra Firewinter, my Starstorm Duellist, who ran into the teeth of the enemy and melted the enemy Sister with the meltagun and took the other one down to two wounds remaining. (She in turn was melted by the Sister Superior's combi-melta, but ah well.)
Next time I definitely need to remember to bring one of my own Compendium teams for introductory games though. Might be a good opportunity to break out the ol' Death Guard again.
