* We played D&D Next with some friends a week ago. I really liked it. The advantage/disadvantage mechanic is simple and fun. I'm sure I'll come to loathe levels and classes again as I always do, but it was an amusing diversion and I'd like to play more of it. Maybe Robin and I can play a low-level Waterdhavian swashbuckling game when I get Ed Greenwood Presents: Elminster's Forgotten Realms on my birthday.
* Chisholm Trail Winery kind of sucks. The wines were always a bit odd, but these days the only ones even worth tasting are their Lenoir-based wines -- and those are definitely an acquired taste. Plus, their grape stomp is seriously underwhelming. Bleah! Becker Vineyards is, as always, the best grape stomp around.
* You know who I miss?
