wants to make us feel sorry

It's great science fiction with awesome special effects....
but unfortunately, it also has a really excessive amount of gunfire
and kung foo fighting. [My favorite thing about
it was the way the Matrix appears on external monitors: as a
computer screen covered with columns of strange green symbols,
cascading downwards like digital rain. It would make for great
I'm thinking about recreating it on my 3DO development station.]

Third Printing report: The decks have shipped! To those of
you whose shipments were delayed because Fluxx was on back-order
for awhile, we once again thank you for your patience. You should
be receiving your package in the next day or three.
Spring is here!
We spent much of the weekend just hanging out on our deck, enjoying
the rebirth and renewal of the world, and eating chocolate bunnies
Actually, we've never much liked our deck; it offers very
little privacy, and we dislike feeling like goldfish. The only
piece of furniture we have out there is a big picnic table that
we've also never liked; it isn't very comfortable and anyway,
since we're floor-centric types, we'd rather just sit on the
floor... except of course that the floor out there is even less
comfortable than the table. But this weekend, we changed all
that. We gave our picnic table to Joe
and Meg, and instead
rolled out a small carpet, which we keep in the van for occasional
temporary use (we originally bought it for use at trade shows).
Then, by bringing out a few throw pillows and a miniature coffee
table, we were able to turn our deck into a delightfully floor-oriented,
This breakthrough in deck usage has energized us about using
our deck, and we've since decided to surround it with vine-covered
lattice-work. (This will eliminate the fishbowl effect.) It will
still be open to the sky, but the walls will be high enough to
keep our indoor cats from escaping, thus creating a kind of a
courtyard, where even they may join us. We also plan to build
a weather-resistant bench that we can store the carpet and pillows
in when not in use. But all of that is a project for another
forget to play!
