Somewhere in Time
Haunting romantic fantasy in which Christopher Reeve wishes
himself back to 1912, to meet an actress whose photograph he
fell in love with. Reminiscent of the works of Jack Finney, it
was written by noted Twilight Zone author Richard Matheson, who
gave Finney a nod in the form of a college professor (named Finney)
who Reeve goes to for advice on traveling back in time. But about
that gold pocketwatch he's given at the start of the film...
if he takes it back in time and leaves it there to be cherished
and eventually returned to him, then where did it come from originally?

people to your games! On Christmas eve I convinced a bunch of
my relatives to play Fluxx. They all started out assuming I was
introducing them to some "lame" game or something...I'm
happy to say though that after one game they couldn't get enough
of it, and kept on coming back for more Fluxx all night!" -- Comments accompanying an order, from Joseph, of

||Back from Toy Fair
Even though it's been two weeks since my last update and lots
of stuff has happened, this report will be brief. The reason
for this is that I'm still feeling half dead. As soon as we returned
from Toy Fair in New York, our entire household was clobbered
by a really nasty flu bug that shut down operations here for
most of the past week. Kristin and Alison took ill before me,
and they're both recovered enough now to return to work, but
while I've improved greatly, I'm still moving pretty slow.
Anyway, Toy Fair was great, the best one we've ever done.
We gave out tons of sample product (Fluxx decks in particular)
and collected lots of business cards, and soon our new Sales
Baron Alvaro (that's him lurking on the right hand side of the
booth in this photo) will be calling everybody we met back, trying
to talk all those buyers into carrying whatever they took home
a sample of in their stores. (It is SO nice to have someone around
who will actually do this all-important follow-up!)
OK, I have to go back to lying on the couch feeling achey
Sorry, I didn't manage to get a cartoon drawn this
week. I'm sick.
||Kristin was on NPR! "All Things Considered"
did a 5 minute spot on board
games at Toy Fair, and they ended the segment with an interview
of Kristin, talking about Fluxx!
||Why do hotel maids throw away the barely-used
li'l soaps each time they clean, even when the guest isn't checking
out? Do we really need to put all that soap in the landfills?
||"This week's saying: How will we know when
drug laws are fair and equitable? When beer drinkers and cigarette
smokers get prison sentences for possessing dangerous drugs."
