settlers of catan: the book

Board games based on books or movies, I get.

Movies based on board games… You’re pushing your luck.

A book based on a board game? Especially this board game?

Um.

…maybe not.

Coupla things regarding last night:
Our show has been lucky enough to be nominated for lots of stuff. Each time we are heading into the arena, I am expecting not to win. Hopeful that we will, but realizing that there’s a TON of great TV happening right now, and we have had an amazing and ridiculous run so far.
As for Jon and Lizzie, I think they should win every single award that exists, because I think they are amazing actors. Plus, I happen to love them, and want to see them win. Mainly because I paid them each $20 to say how awesome I am in their speeches, and now I’m out $40.
Just kidding. They paid me back.
All that being said, we had a great time last night. It was so good to see my coworkers after not having seen many of them since September. My Lovely Wife and I have basically been quarantined since Kid #2.
Now to much more important matters: Please do not think for a moment that I am enjoying this “beard” any more than you are. It is for a job, and will vanish almost immediately upon said job’s completion. I promise.

whateverishly asked: Just saw your two Committee videos. I have not laughed so hard in quite some time. I do hope there are more in the future.

Good news! We are trying to nail down shoot dates now. I am excited to do more.

69kittykate69 asked: Concerning that whole Delta clusterfuck - have you officially complained to them yet? Are you going to? You should!

Nah. I mean it when I say that it wasn’t (all) their fault. I was just a surly dad with two young ‘uns.

I have no memory of this incident, but I love the picture.

I’m calmer now.

I don’t hate Delta anymore. It wasn’t their fault, really, except for the rerouting-us-to-a-flight-we-would-probably-miss part.

I can’t hate them, because I am heading back to the airport right now to fly them again, and that would be a bummer of a way to start my day. I am being very zen about them.

I have instead chosen to focus my rage on one of the other passengers in this SuperShuttle, who brought his cat in the van.

I am allergic to cats.

THIS is a bummer of a way to start the day.

Update: OH MY GOD SOME OTHER LADY JUST GOT ON AND IS TALKING TO THE CAT AND LOVES IT AND ITS NAME IS BLUE AND IT’S GOING TO ORLANDO AND KILL ME PLEASE
