The Perfect Basement

Just back from a long weekend in Gatlinburg - Pigeon Forge, honestly - and from remembering how spectacular pink pong is as a sport. I totally dig ping pong, and I love playing with just about anybody...and that last part can be a bit misleading.

I loved having a ping pong table in the chalet, and I dug playing ping pong the half dozen times that we played. That sort of thing makes me almost forget that playing ping pong solo isn't the same as having somebody around. When my family moved into our new house - 'round about my freshman year in high school - we got a ping pong table, and I got pretty good at it 'cause I got to play against my parents - both pretty decent - on a regular basis. Then I headed to college and got to play ping pong in the basement of the frat house for most of my freshman year (after that I had to do some actual work and got my own room, doncha know).

But then I moved away, and the girl certainly isn't into ping pong, so I don't play nearly as much as I'd like to.

Of course, my basement doesn't really have the room for a ping pong table - at least not the way it's set up now - but I did get to thinking about what sorts of stuff would make up the absolutely perfect basement.

Your thoughts?

A pool table is an absolute must. But what about maybe a poker table or a card table of some sort. Always a nice addition to a basement.

Hey, Since I haven't found a contact me link for you - I'm Rob from Technically Overboard. I can't thank you enough for all the great linkage, would you mind if I linked you on my front page?

Morin - agreed, poker/euchre table is a must...speaking of which, how was this past weekend's tourney?

And to Rob - heck, yeah...I'd love to be linked on Overboard...as to the "contact me" link, this is a weird blog for me because it's linked from my school webpage (which is how folks like CMorin and J-Ged-Ruff-Ryder come around), so I'm tempted to include a link to my school address (not like anybody couldn't find it easily enough from the sidebar pointing to my class website)...but some part of me says I should point toward my personal email instead since not everybody knows me through school...

I like how you've got the 'contact me' button working - just a form that anybody can fill out...maybe I'll work on that when I get some free time...

A poker/gaming table can be a lot of fun. If it was me, I'd go for the tv, of course, but I know you all aren't the tv junkies that I am, so the dart board is a good choice for something to play with friends and solo.
