We had a very nice weekend, fairly quiet for me (as usual). Katie went out with her beau Friday night, and Sam and I finally got to see the first season 2 Torchwood episode, “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.” It was worth the wait! I wonder how much BBC America bowdlerized it? Unfortunately, we don’t have […]
Not the nice, Johnny Depp kind, no. The pillage/rape/murder sort spiced up with demon-worshipping shark people. Tonight was date night, and I was impatient to be back to our game. We’d left off at a very unresolved point the last time we played, before the weekend. It would be almost impossible for someone else to […]
I have an SBQ to post, but it’ll have to wait. :-) I’m loving having Hope here for a visit. She’s great company, and certainly easy on the eyes. She’s been marvelously patient with my need to sleep so much and the fact that I’m dopey from fibro fogs and medications.
And we have her all weekend! Squee!
I hadn’t ever thought of it this way, but I think the man is on to something. “One of my pet theories about the popularity of roleplaying games goes like this. Roleplaying is fantasy shopping for guys. That is, men would, as a group, be more interested in shopping if a) it meant never having […]
My sweetie had to run a bunch of errands before he got home last night, which shortened our date a bit. Groceries were needful, though. We had some delicious deli-style sandwiches after he got home, so there wasn’t a kitchen mess to deal with, too. I think we watched an episode of West Wing while eating. […]
But tonight’s game was really, really good, and even though we retconned something and most GMs wouldn’t be as accommodating as Sam, he managed to make a new thing damn near as difficult (or more so than) the old thing, and how is it that he has so much story in there? Oh! He also brought […]
An LJ friend posted about this movie today, with a link to Feel the Sting of My Foam Sword: A must-see documentary about LARPing. I haven’t LARPed, but I’m fascinated. It sounds as if the documentary was done with respect for the players. The article certainly is more accepting of the pastime that most journalism. […]
I heard a rumor about this earlier today but couldn’t find confirmation. Now, though, it’s on CNN and most of the other major news sites: Gary Gygax, Dungeons & Dragons creator, dies. The Wired article is slightly different from the AP story everybody else is running.
I took my project management final tonight, so I’m done with the semester! Now I’m trying to download the textbook files for next semester, but the ebook server is having issues. In the meantime, I’m listening to some lovely new music, free and legal, over at TheSixtyOne. I don’t know how Sam found out about […]
