Time Flies

I used to get so annoyed when my moth­er would say, “Twen­ty years from now, nobody will know the dif­fer­ence.” She was wrong in a sense—I cer­tain­ly still know the dif­fer­ence, about so very many things.

On the oth­er hand, I do under­stand the longer view much bet­ter now. Twen­ty years seemed like such a […]

I missed what?

It was Nation­al Gram­mar Day AND Gamemaster’s Day, and I didn’t real­ize either until the day was almost over!

It was date night, though, and my favorite GM and I did play, so at least there’s that. I’ll have to get him a make-up present, though.

You know all those dif­fer­ent click-to-give sites? I very […]

McCain Blogger Flubs His Roll

If you’re a gamer, you’ve prob­a­bly heard the hoorah by now. Michael Gold­farb, a blog­ger on McCain’s offi­cial cam­paign site added a lame anti-gamer slur to his rinse-and-repeat “but he was a POW!” bull­shit. Sam (and many oth­ers) respond­ed to the twit (who keeps com­ments dis­abled on his blog–afraid of a lit­tle com­men­tary, Gold­farb?). This […]

Good Reads Migration Finished!

That was not pain­less at all. The import fea­ture is tetchy, at best. I had to go through the entire list of 1300+ books and fix their “book­shelf” assign­ments, and add some that just didn’t import at all. I had over 1400 books in Now Read­ing, and I haven’t quite fig­ured out why there are […]

My name is Cynthia, and I am a roleplaying addict

My one and only com­plaint about gam­ing with Sam is that I nev­er, ever get enough. He’s just so good, and the sto­ries are so fas­ci­nat­ing, that I always want more! I’m just greedy, I guess.

Yep, I flubbed my sav­ing throw against being a geek.

Date Night–Baby!

We had Chi­nese food togeth­er tonight, and played for a while. There was some ick, but I sus­pect­ed that it was com­ing. The hap­py part is that my character’s old­est son (fos­ter son, real­ly) and his wife’s baby was born. First grand­ba­by! There have been many babies born in the last “year” of the game, […]

Adult Gaming

Sam and I just lis­tened to “Female Char­ac­ters,” episode 42 of the Game Mas­ter Show. The top­ic came up because Erin, one of the hosts, real­ized that she was will­ing to put female char­ac­ters through some expe­ri­ences that she wouldn’t apply to males. There was a fair amount of talk about the Heroine’s Jour­ney and […]

Weekend Update

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 […]

Pirates!

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 […]

Fun Day

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.
