See all 4 pics here.
Got in and out of work (relatively) early last night, and headed straight over to Brian's to ring in the new year. Cate and JD were also there. They were playing Ruckus, which is a bit like Egyptian Ratscrew in that it's very dangerous, and I somehow end up getting injured. So I sat it out and got ready to play Carcassonne with expansions. Check out our finished map. It was a sedate evening, but food and fun with friends, hey? Can't beat it.
After I got home, I tried to get a decent action shot of Ares playing with the autolazor. I think one kind of captured it in a NatGeo long-exposure action shot sort of way.
I made a friend a present today. I'm really happy with how well it turned out. :D
