QOTD 8/24/12: TGIF

Postby LucyLu » Fri Aug 24, 2012 10:38 am

After a busy week of whatever (school, work, kids activities, etc.) what do you like to do on the weekends to relax? Note: Express what you want to do, not what you are obligated to do like drive kids around, errands, or chores, but what you actually do to unwind. Like go to the beach, or the movies, or out to a nice dinner, etc.

Have a happy weekend everyone!

With me the problem is not having a week to end. Being "forcibly retired," I don't stay busy enough to have to forcibly recreate on Saturday and Sunday. Having worked on weekends all my life, it is a real conundrum when I try to fit into the expected five days on and two days off pattern. Any psych students want to write a paper on this?

Weekends are usually filled with work, but this weekend I'm actually going to be able to do one of my favorite things: hang out with friends at their beach house. :)

Of late, my very favorite thing to do is hang out/snuggle/watch movies with Tina. I also like to go to one of the local pubs and catch some live music, especially Moses Jones, with the mighty drum circles. :)

And the farmer's market on Saturday mornings is a must!

My favorite weekends are the ones when we have Torchwood games.

We took the RPG system Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space and adapted it as Torchwood, and set it in 1882.

We take turns being the game master, so no one has to be left out of the fun parts.

Relax?

Game. Video games and I am hoping to add board games to that list.

If not game, camp.

If not camp, travel around the PNW.

If not travel around the PNW...um...game.

Really, I've got a crap ton of games on the PC to play. I would love to be able to play them all.
