Hung out with Lisa as usual today, playing the longest game of Dominion in the history of Dominion games, which I lost 57-113. Ouch. She's been kicking my butt lately. Then we watched a few episodes of "Babylon 5," which I haven't been enjoying very much. The first season is the worst -- heavy-handed writing and very obvious plots -- so if I can just make it through the next several episodes things will get better.

At lunch at Fatapples I had perhaps the best hamburger I have ever eaten, topped with sauteed mushrooms and followed up by a slice of olallieberry pie. Yum! I love food.

Tomorrow Shannon and I are planning on going on a long bike ride from Dublin to Walnut Creek. Shannon was surprised that I asked if I could go with him, because I haven't been biking the past few weeks because of my back pain. But my back is doing so much better that I would like to get out there and ride again. We're going to ride part of the Iron Horse Trail, which is all off-street, which is always particularly enjoyable, with no cars to worry about and generally attractive scenery. It will be the longest ride I've done yet (I think about 20 miles). I'm looking forward to it.

Dominion scores?
I'm still learning Dominion; I've played 9 games so far. How do you get 57-113? Adding all the estates, duchies, and provinces together, I only get 86 pts. BTW, it's your playing of this that inspired me to pick it up.

I need a game playing icon. :)

Re: Dominion scores?
1. Lisa likes to play with 9 Provinces instead of 8, so that's a total of 54 points.

2. We were playing with Gardens, so they added up to 60 additional points.

3. We were playing with the Witch, so there was -10 in Curses.

4. 9 Duchies = 27 pts, 9 Estates = 9 pts

54 + 60 -10 +27 + 9 = 140

113 + 57 = 170

So somebody counted too high by 30 points. I'm betting on Lisa, since her score was so high. And she has miscounted in the past. That's okay; she still won.
