Not so much with the good last week. Bad weeks happen to everyone, right? I guess it was just my turn. Not many things can get me out of a funk like finding a package addressed to me on my doorstep. Great timing Buffy the Vampire Slayer "Conversations with Dead People" board. I think I'll call you CDP for short, is that cool?
I pre-ordered this months ago when I first found out about it along with the now-cancelled Buffy Tarot deck. I have a tendency to forget about things I pre-order so it was a delightful surprise today. I was hoping the board itself would be better quality than your run-of-the-mill Parker Brothers Ouija board but it's not. The planchette is much thicker and sturdier though which is a relief. Plus it came with this neat comic-equivalent of directions illustrated by Paul Lee.
This makes a nice addition to my ever expanding pile of nerd memorabilia. My boyfriend has his Hellboy Talking Board, now I have my CDP. That says a lot about us now that I think about it. It's a shame it didn't come a day earlier though, I had a game night with my gals last night and this would have been a blast to try out with them. I'd imagine there would have been a lot of intoxicated "dead people" speaking to us for some reason...
