Candyland I know. Knew. The rules are the same but they have updated the characters on the board for some reason. No problems playing Candyland.
Chutes and Ladders is an old game but new to me. There's a spinner that gives you a number from one to six. Then you move that many spaces on the board, which is a ten-by-ten grid numbered boustrophedon from bottom to top. Victoria likes spinning the spinner, but can not accept a game that has you count to, say, four as you move your marker four spaces to land on a number that isn't four. Climbing up a ladder? Sliding down a chute? We are not approaching these subtleties of play. We may never progress beyond square number six.
Went to a party on Sunday, had a lot of fun. Came back to work, not so fun. Man, I am really tired of work. And it's not even hard! I have a new plan, Brian is on board with it so far. But for now--must. keep. working. for. the. man. Too bad the man is Governor Ehrlich.
