Weekend Fun

Now that almost everyone in Sweden is vaccinated and the restrictions have been lifted, I’m cramming in as many entertainments as possible into my calendar. So I had a really fun weekend!

  • Had solid afternoon tea at the Warship Vasa Museum with friends and heard Jens Heimdahl speak about the paleobotany of excavated Early Modern gardens in Stockholm
  • Saw music critic and humorist Fredrik Strage’s standup show
  • Watched three good films at the Monsters of Film genre festival, about which more in a later entry
  • Studied large Nordic mammals and historical buildings at Stockholm’s open-air museum Skansen — a lynx female was licking the cuddly belly of its kitten!
  • Played Fiasco and No Thanks

Dear Reader, what did you do for fun over the weekend?

  1. This weekend was pretty much full of anti-fun (some sorrow work for a friend who passed a while ago, but I only found out Friday evening; talking to the bank).

    1. The weekend before that saw the last session of the long-running GURPS campaign (pretty much spot-on 14 years, monthly sessions, the first session was October 13, 2007) with one of the PCs besting Emperor Hirohito in a duel at the Nezu shrine. The PC, wielding a rapier, and the Emperor a katana. With some help from the emperor, the PC wins, and the rather alternate WWII ended.

      There’s still some wrap-up, like a debrief of what ACTUALLY happened and how the world worked (the PCs had pin-pointed at least three distinct “the history of the world changed in this narrow time interval”, maybe as many as five).

      In a fw months, we’re set to run a parallel / prequel campaign, centering more on British India, and less on the European and Pacific theatres.

      1. Awesome! My Fantasy Venice players recently discovered that the tenants at the family salt extraction site have a secret cult to the River Goddess together with the savage toad people from the nearby swamp.
