my 4 year old loves rolling my dice and plays with my dragon mini, whnen I was painting minis he sat next to me and "painted" a plastic mini with one of my brushes and some water as "paint"
the seed is planted I think
when the son of one group member turned ten we gifted him with a players handbook (2e I think) now he is 26 and last year he joined our group as a regular
some very stressful weeks and work are behind me, organizing the build of a cardboard mock up model for a new production line in an empty building, organizing a "best project of the year" day with 400 attendends and organizing and moderating a week long workshop with 25 people from different countries (where we optimized the sonn-to-be-bought line with the mock up model)
now the weeks till christmas should be rather relaxed

I did it the right way, but I think it is much easier in Germany with a lot of social security, very strong job markets and a lot of employee rights protecting you from getting fired to easilychoosing (by shear luck) the right profession and the right company did help as well
this year we get an extra bonus holyday:
usually this is only a holiday in a few East-German states but because this year is the 500th jubilee we get a special gift holiday :- )
and it is a tuesday whicg makes an easy long weekend again
I got from the company 1 extra monthly salary, a 60 € gift certificate from a wine shop and 6 days extra holidays
I already got a useless silver needle + a "silver" watch from the union
urgh, sorry for the many misspellings, I was typing on the phone while rocking the baby stroller
you had a teacher called Dr. Goodtime who taught you to order beer ??

gay marriage- german politic:
looks like gay/lesbian marriage will finally get equal rights on friday, Federal Chancler Merkel said in an interview that she no longer thinks it a problem and her coalition partner, the Labour party, promptl forced a voting for friday. 3 parties will vote yes: Labour (social democratic party) Greens and Socialists (the Liberal party would as well, but they are not part of parliament at the moment)
Merkels conservative "christian democratic union" will most likely vote half and half and their partner the Bavaria-only "christian social union" will vote against it
short week over here,
we will drive to Sabines homestate Saxony and visit family and family friends, friday we will go to Leipzig Zoo, one of the biggest and most famous zoos in Germany
Germanys biggest Rock festival "Rock am Ring" had to be interrupted yesterday evening mid-show because of terror dangers.
the truly amazing reaction of the fans:
my gaming table repair is another step foreward.
last week we re-atteched the legs (that we had to saw of for transport)
this weekend I grinded down and varnishd the tabletop, I did a bad job when I varnished it back then (8 years ago)
and over the years countless crumbs of ereaser rubber had stuck to the varnish, they blocked the sand paper in seconds and I had to use my whole stock of paper to do it
on friday, before the gameing session, the group and I will carry the tabletop upstairs, turn the table on its legs, attech the top, attach the glass window in the middle (that is still without monitor screen below it) and gaming can again be done in style

This is really dumb, and it means basically nothing from a professional standpoint, but one of the illustrators for Pathfinder added me on DeviantArt and favorited my latest painting, and I'm way more pleased with myself than is probably warranted.
it dosn't have to mean anything to make you feel good
a complime is a good thing just in its own right
