Thwarted. November 2, 2006

Posted by clumsyraine in NaBloPoMo, step-munchkin, Thursday 13.

Well, no visit from my DSD (dear step daughter… pardon me, I spend too much time on message boards) this weekend. The transportation situation didn’t work itself out (they live about a 2:15 drive from us… we usually meet up at a gas station in the city halfway between here and there). So we postponed until next weekend or the weekend after.

We may instead pitch the idea of waiting until the weekend after, but keeping her for Thanksgiving week. Up until now, she’s always stayed with her mom’s family for Turkey day, because at DH’s (um, I mean Harry’s) old job it was mandatory to work on Thanksgiving (boo!!). The new job told him when he signed on that they, too, work most holidays; but, he’s had off July 4th and Labor Day so far… surely they wouldn’t make them work on Thanksgiving! Oh, I hope not… It really may be a supply/demand kind of thing. They’ve had quite an increase in orders over the past month or two, so… maybe they had off the summer holidays because business was slow, in which case Thanksgiving is probably doomed.

*le sigh* A girl can hope… I haven’t had Thanksgiving dinner with my husband since we got married! (Not on Thanksgiving, I mean.) It would be really nice to have a whole little family Thanksgiving dinner, all together, ON the day. Who says you can’t have all your eggs in one basket? 😉

I almost forgot! It’s Thursday! I was thinking all week about what to do for my first Thursday 13. And um, I never came up with anything good. But I still feel like typing, and participating, so I’ll go with the thing on my mind right now… games. I’m watching Harry play some kind of golf tournament on Hot Shots Golf 3 (PS2) right now, so I’ll make a T13 out of games I like to play (not just video games, either!).

Thirteen Things about JEN’S FAVORITE GAMES

Hot Shots Golf 3

(The good old fashioned kind.)

(My father-in-law taught me this one just recently!)

Jungle Gin
(Gin Rummy on Pogo.com)

Monopoly Party

The Sims
(PC; What I wouldn’t give for The Sims 2…)

(The good old fashioned kind.)

Katamari Damacy

(Cell phone.)


Super Mario Brothers 3
(Orignal NES! Oh yeah, baby! [Yes, I still have one!!])

Burnout Revenge
(PS2; We stay up all night playing this with the
in-laws when we visit!)

Logic puzzles
(The cross grid kind… I’m amazed that Internet versions
exist, but you can’t beat paper and pencil.)

I’m not sure I could come up a whole 13 games I like to play, though especially since winter’s finally here (apparently), I’m getting in the mood to break out the Yahtzee!

Yahtzee is evil. Just kidding..Its addictive, especially the hand held game. Have you ever played sequence?
