The annual carving filled two days and saw food, friends, family, games and gourds. I had a lovely time and the new house felt like home more than it had as yet. There was White Bean Chicken Chile, Chicken Noodle Soup, XBox games, Carrot Cake, various Chinese dishes, Imagineiff [a game I had never heard of and now can't live without], and Outburst, a game I can't wait to try again.

Quote of the weekend:
Is there a game you know how to lose?
The carved gourds speak for themselves, but major bonus points go to Allesandra's freehand elvish carving, which is glowy and beautiful and otherworldly.
