I'm so glad I tipped you off to that one :-).

As for where Liz is, well, the answer is no longer Mumm -- she's working at Gallo these days, from what I hear.

If it's Mumm, I'll be in for my first three. If it's Iron Horse, two. Anything else will be decided on a case by case basis.

So did I just play the one you were talking about or did that one end due to a force forfeit? I think about 5 games recently ended because I didn't play my turn.
This is also the first time I'm checking the pub in at least 5 days, maybe more.

I feel like the pub has been significantly quiet as of late. Any theories?

That would be "dessert". "Dessert" is dessert, "desert" is a vast wasteland of dryness.

BTW Has anyone seen Fairnymph since she didn't show for DTW #6?

Edit: For reasons we won't explore Sparky's FB posting and the complaining about this being 'really short' reminded me of when 'it' was 'really long', which made me realize that I hadn't seen FN.

She posted in today's wine offering. She was a no show for NoVA/DC this weekend, too. Hope that she's OK.
