A quiet evening with good conversation, good food, and a board game with depth. Best of all the game was being played in good spirit with all enjoying themselves.
I hope everyone else had as enjoyable a new years eve!
( Comments with some spoilers... )
On the way home I discovered that Canberra has been invaded by thousands of kids for the Pacific School Games. On the approach to Dickson I pulled up to a set of lights as some Japanese girls were crossing the road and I collected a "Sugoi!" from one of them when she saw the trike. :)
Whilst I've been busy retagging news of the weird posts I've been re-reading older posts that I wanted to refresh my memory of.
In the comments thread to a 5 questions meme, vegetus wistfully observed "now if my legs weren't too short for a trike".
This is where I point out that Europe is recumbent heaven generally, that the UK is the home of Trice specifically, and that the 35" minimum x-seam of the Trice Q & T is shorter than Greenspeed manage for the small-frame GTs...
Also, the prices for a Trice look a lot cheaper when you're already being paid in sterling. :)

On Monday I struggled with the weights and was wondering why. This morning I had a longer, slower, warmup on the rowing machine (10 minutes) and worked a lot better with the weights.
I had an extra 10Kg on the bench press for a start, and completed both sets of reps.
And in other news, happy birthday to rdmasters !
As I recall from some interesting conversations (well, I enjoyed them at least :) ), I believe nevryn was involved in the Pedal Prix (or something similar) some time ago.
However for a non-spoilery amusing coincidence check out the cover art here and leecetheartist 's userpics here.
And since it is talk like a pirate day: Arrrr!
