What I’ve Been Up To

Lots of knit­ting. Lots and lots of knit­ting. (If you’re on Rav­el­ry, you can see my fin­ished projects.) My hands ache from the knit­ting, par­tic­u­lar­ly the left because I knit Con­ti­nen­tal. I think I may have to learn to knit Eng­lish just to swap off on occa­sion. We’ve been going out to hear more live […]

Energy Boost

Plinky asked, “What ener­gizes you?” I strug­gle with major depres­sion (actu­al­ly, treat­­ment-resis­­tant depres­sion), so it’s dif­fi­cult to find much that ener­gizes me. How­ev­er, real­ly great con­ver­sa­tion with just a few peo­ple does it quite well. The same goes for sto­ry games, or a real­ly good table­top role­play­ing ses­sion that focus­es on char­ac­ters and plot rather than […]

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 […]

Tired Now

I had a pain doc­tor appoint­ment last week but was­n’t up to going. So Sam resched­uled it for me, and I head­ed across town today. Appar­ent­ly, this was the day for “fit­ting in” every­body who has can­celed an appoint­ment in the last God­dess-knows-how-long, because I arrived to find no park­ing (even on the street in front […]

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. Do you know all those dif­fer­ent click-to-give sites? I […]

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 as well as 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 […]

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) baby was born. First grand­ba­by! There have been many babies born in the last “year” of the game, and there are […]
