Happy Mother's Day

by Susan Rozmiarek

I wasnít expecting anything gaming related for Motherís Day from Ed and our boys. We almost never give each other games for gifts because we usually want the same ones and that makes the motive quite suspicious. But look at todayís haul! Itís ALL gaming stuff that I and I alone wanted but yet not a single game. Do I have a creative husband or what!?

See that laminator? Iíve wanted one of those puppies for a long, long time. Being a female, you see, I have this innate desire to participate in some sort of craft activity. I was not blessed with the craftbooking gene like many of my sisters so for me, this used to mean trundling down to my local Kinkoís armed with a pile of playersí aids, screens, maps and such from games to laminate and cut out. I admit, I tend to go a little crazy with the laminating. If I was a superhero, Iíd be The Laminator. Unfortunately, some customer must have accidentally laminated their hand or small child because Kinkoís decided it was best to keep their heat laminator behind the counter and charge dearly for one of their worker bees to do the work. So, I quit going and had to suffer from my repressed urges for a long time.

The cool Meeple pillow, license plate frame, t-shirt and decals are all from Meeple People. I think that they actually threw those decals in for free. Once I get those and the license plate frame on my minivan I will have a true geekmobile. Except, I doubt hardly anyone on the streets will know exactly what they mean.

Nice haul, Susan. I've got that same paper cutter which I, too, use for player aids. I'm not a big lamination fiend, but it's gotta be neat to now have that capability at home. Yahh, you iss now Die Lamintor. And that license plate holder is MINE! I gotta get one (Spielfreak is, after all, my BGG moniker).

Happy Mother's Day!!
