If your face breaks into a smile at the mere mention of the words “Bears, Beets, Battle Star Galactica,” you can definitely be my friend. If not, we’ll have to work on that. Because the Office is the best TV show ever, seriously. Identity theft is not a joke Jim! Okay, I’ll stop now.
B is for Backgammon, which is the game I pretty much played all day today on the computer. Honestly, what else are supposed to do in the summer? I have no school work to catch up on, I’m busy procrastinating reading the 4 books I’m working on, I don’t have to work until the evening, and I have no appointments honor. Backgammon is an excellent past time/time waster.
If you’ve never played backgammon before then you need to. Like, right now. Don’t come back until you’re thoroughly obsessed with it and are pulling out your hair because the computer player is a huge jerk. Um, be quiet I have issues.
You can find the rules here and I’m almost positive that if you dig around in your parents’ basement/garage you’ll definitely find a board and the pieces to it. People use to play it a while ago, when it was cool. I even found a picture of Bob Dylan playing backgammon hehe :)
People will definitely think you’re hipster/vintagey if you play it in the park with your friend. Although, you’ll both need to be wearing impractical scarves and skinny jeans. And be smoking.
How did this turn into a discourse about being a hipster? I’m gonna stop talking now…
Thank goodness it’s Friday! See you on Monday lovely people!
