Weekend Fun

  • Had brunch and a walk in the sunshine with wife and sans kids, a rare pleasure. Strange to think that in just a few years’ time they won’t need us much anymore. I guess it’s one tiny step at a time, setting us down gently. Anyway, it’s only 15 years to the first grand-child if Junior repeats my life schedule.
  • Played Drakar och Demoner, Drakborgen/Dungeonquest and a card game with Jr and his buddy. The latter game has a naughty name that involves bodily discipline of a rambunctious simian who is disrupting the recycling trade.

And you, Dear Reader?

    Um, shouldn’t you be hoping that your son might do better than you in increasing generation time?

  2. If my motivation on that issue was 100% determined by consideration of global overpopulation, then I wouldn’t be wishing for any grand-children at all, right?

  3. I was elected to the board of the Swedish Humanist Youth Association, watched Melodifestivalen, and had a five hour choir rehearsal that left me feeling like I had been inflating balloons for at least half as long. All in all, a fun weekend.

  4. The focal point of this weekend was a very good friend’s 50th birthday party on Saturday. It was great fun, starting with drinks, then a very tasty dinner interspersed with a few good “roasting” speeches and lots of singing (in the Swedish tradition of singing drinking songs), followed by dancing until early morning.

    As you can imagine, Sunday was a day of rest and recuperation, including a walk in the glorious sunshine!

    Oh, and the teddy bear, which just got back from Japan, has been handed over and will now go to Angola…

    The issue is what is wise and yet realistic. I think that at least a modest increase in generation time might be wise and realistic, but that wishing for no grandchildren wouldn’t be realistic even if it were wise.

  6. We played two games of Race for the Galaxy and two of Agricola. In one of the latter, I managed to set up an absolute killer combo of Grocer and Schnappsmaker, meaning that my family subsisted almost entirely on schnapps. This, apparently, is a Good Thing (57 pts!).

  7. Haha, Akhorahil, you rule! All I can boast about is falling into a bottomless pit in Dungeonquest. Apparently these shafts pass through the underground level of the castle into the planet’s murky depths.

    Were talking about two different things here, Bob. You are discussing public policy. I offered some thoughts about the grand-children I may personally have one day.

  9. The game-world got a reprieve this week.

    My brother and his wife stopped by on Saturday, on his way home from a bagpiping gig. We all went out to lunch, and then sat around the house chatting. Riotous excitement! 😀

  10. I got taken out for dinner with a number of academics, several of whom were my friends, in a famously medieval city full of cobbles and hills on Sunday evening. Admittedly this was because we were all being interviewed the next day for a post I didn’t get—but the dinner was still fun!

  11. Oh well, let’s see it from the bright side: the next time you apply for a job, one of those competitors won’t be on the roster as they already have a job. (-;
