Kobolds Ate My Baby is finally available again!

It is rules light silly fun.  Very silly fun.  Like so silly a knight might slap you in the head with a chicken silly.  But besides that, it's a blast and a great diversion from serious gaming for an evening or six.

The review on the link above is solid and accurate, and the game is fun.

What's cool about this cupcake?

Ostensibly, I blog about food and cooking, remember?


The peas and carrots in the foreground sort of make it obvious, but this is a mini meatloaf, with mashed potato 'frosting' and peas & carrots and a dash of paprika 'sprinkles'.  and voilĂ , my four year old loves meatloaf!  Starting with about a pound and a half of meat, you can divide the raw meatloaf into a dozen muffins, and baking them in muffin tins cuts the cooking time way down.  I think these were ready in about 20 mins instead of an hour.  To really knock it out of the park, add a 'wrapper' by lining the muffin cups with a strip of bacon before filling the tins with the meatloaf.

I must have one....

This is so much more amusing than it really is, if that makes any sense.  :-)

I've gotten custom dice from Eric in the past, and they are awesome, and he's great to work with.

If you can, please donate to Hurricane Sandy relief

I had planned to periodically bump these announcements about Movember throughout the month, but now I have mixed feeling about stumping for donations because of my family ties to downstate NY, New Jersey, and other areas ravished by Hurricane Sandy. That said, [URL=""]Movember donations[/URL] are accepted through the end of Movember.

Obviously, I support the efforts to promote men’s health, but donations to Movember will pay off in the future. There are entire communities made homeless and needing food, water and heat [I]right now[/I]. The flood devastation in the [URL=""]Rockaways Queens[/URL] is amazing, and the rest of the areas hit by the storm will take months or years to recover.  Some may not.

If you or anyone you know wants to help, please spread the word that donations can be made to the [URL=""]Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief[/URL] or [URL=""]Direct Relief.Org’s Hurricane Sandy Relief.[/URL]

Actually, my feelings are not mixed.  I'd say if you have just one dollar to donate [I]somewhere[/I], donate it to the Hurricane relief.  If everyone chipped in just one dollar... well, you get the idea.  Thank you for reading.
