The Library of Table

Given an infinite combination of games & food . . .

Finite and Lonely

As long as John Boswell keeps making these, I’m going to keep posting them.

The highlight for me in this one has to be Dawkins’ line:

Matter flows from place to place,
And momentarily comes together to be you.
Some people find that thought disturbing.
I find the reality thrilling.


The Joys of Failure

So, obviously, I did not make it all the way through VeganMoFo. Perhaps next year. But now that I’ve got this blog rolling, and I’m not giving up on it yet. By my count, I owe you lot at least eight posts about food. And you shall have them! Just not at the moment. Let’s say, before the new year.

In the meantime, I’m going to push forward the gaming agenda of this blog a little more. Because in addition to being an eater, I’m a gamer. And I even design games. Even games that have YouTube videos made of them:

My gaming stuff is all over the place, but in all sorts of official capacities. My Dread blog is all about, well, Dread. My Dig a Thousand Holes blog is about the games I’ve published myself, which at the moment is dominated by my latest: Time & Temp. And the Imagination Sweatshop is about a group of friends who get together to make games up as they go along. And as many and varied as these links are, a lot of my gaming interest and thoughts tends to fall through the cracks. I intend to employ this blog in preventing such crack falling through.
