Truong RnB 1

Yes we are.  Having game night that is. Truong will be joining us to play some board games for a bit tonight. But he will be getting up crazy early Saturday morning to go do his running group stuff.  So come join us tonight for some Mambo Italiano style board game feasting as we share the “hunter’s feast” tonight, Chicken Cacciatore, grilled veggies, some Chia pets, and of course CAKE, or is it going to be TT ???? You will just have to come tonight to find out.

FRI FEB 10 A “WILL YOU BE MINE” GAME NIGHT

10 Feb

seared-filet-mignon-3

So many things to look forward to in the coming days. This weekend Truong will be running in the Rhythm and Blues run again. Also this weekend Truong and I have to rush over to Neiman Marcus to get us some Ivanka Wear before they run out, ( Kelly Ann told us to do this).  Then there is the Batman Lego Movie we have to find time to go see. And of course this weeks Friday Night Game Night will be a wonderful chance for us to spend some time playing board games with MY Valentine. This week for Truong’s Valentine feast, I am going to be preparing  a mouth watering Filet Mignon, to be pared with some delicious Lobster Raviolis in a brown butter & sage sauce. To carry on the “surf” side of this “surf & turf” banquet he will also be enjoying everyone’s favorite Oxymoron,  grilled “Jumbo Shrimp” K Bobs, and while we are at the grill, some grilled veggies as well. For dessert, another Oxymoron, a rich creamy, yet healthy, chia pet parfait. And of course CAKE.
.
For the rest of us, I might be able to find some left over hot dogs from last weeks game night feast.
.
We look forward to seeing all our board game playing friends here tonight, and since the Rhythm & Blues run is Sunday morning Truong does NOT have to get up early Saturday morning to run with his group. So he can fall asleep playing board games with us late into the night.

.

You must  know I do not have any left over hot dogs from last weeks game night, Fu ate them all. But Surely I will find something for the rest of us to eat for tonight’s game night feast, and don’t call me Shirley.

FRI JAN 27 GAME NIGHT

26 Jan

Yes board game playing friends we are having game night and look forward to seeing you here. If Lewis is going to be here I hope he brings “Mars” with him. I am pretty sure that Truong wants to play it again (Jim too). However, we did finally get to play the “rice patty” game, its pretty cool, very interesting game also.  But Truong will need to play whatever games he is going to play early. He is starting his new running group program Saturday Morning, and he has to be there ready to run at 6:30 AM. I did say Truong NOT  Truong and Jim. So I will be here playing board games as usual, NOT having to get up at “ZERO DARK 30 AM”. And I will NOT be getting up to make him coffee either. 
So to sum it up, We are having game night, there is a game night feast to share with all, there will be CAKE, there will be much playing of board games and Truong is getting up crazy earlier Saturday morning to go train and run.
We look forward to seeing you here for  FridayNightGameNight.

Winning the Race Celebratory Game Night, January 20

19 Jan

Dear board gaming friends,

Neither Jim nor I in all our years of running have ever crossed the finish line first at an organized USATF-certified running event.  But let me tell you, since we are such awesome athletes, it was bound to happen sooner or later!

This past weekend at the Chevron Houston Marathon, all those Ethiopians were left choking on the dust flying off our blazing running shoes, as we flew past them and finished the race in first and second place!  While we left all of our competition far behind, the finish between the two of us was so close, that it required analysis of video footage to determine who finished first and who finished second.

Speaking of photo-finishes, here is a video of the history-making event:

I suspect that you found my account of our weekend race unbelievable, but this video should be all that is required to make your disbelieving eyes see the indisputable truth of our victory.

The combined prize money of $75,000 and many endorsement deals with sports apparel and nutrition companies will purchase many board games and FridayNightGameNight feasts.  Come celebrate with us our glorious victory this Friday, January 20, starting at 7 pm!

Truong

FRI DEC 23 IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS GAME NIGHT

22 Dec

As many of our board game playing friends know, Truong will not be here for game night tonight. However, Truong will be board gaming, He will be playing Tobago in Tobago this week. BUT, on this Friday Night Game Night before Christmas we will be joined not only by Gregg and Ellie as I told you before, BUT we will get to share this board game playing Holiday time with Star and Will who are back in town for Christmas. So it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. AND Truong said he is going to try to call and have some Face Time with us all during Friday Night Game Night. There will of course be a Christmas Friday Night Game Night Feast to share with all of our board game playing friends.
And there will be CAKE ….. or will it be  ?
