Discourse With Doornails

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...

We all have our bad weeks. Mine was not so good, work related, last week also.

Brandon's 3rd birthday last Friday and my more than 3rd birthday on Sunday more than made up for it though!!

Just saying to hang in there though. Bad things DO happen to good people. It's a cliche, I know, but there's truth to it!
