Setting Up Shop

Plinky asked, “If you were going to open up a shop, what would you sell? Food? Cloth­ing? Books?”

Book­store (IBC)

Books and needle­work items! My for­mer part­ner and I used to dream about open­ing a com­bi­na­tion book/stitching/gaming/coffee shop.

Of course, inde­pen­dent book­stores are near­ly dead, and even Bor­ders is dead […]

Cruisin’

Plinky asks, “Would you ever take a cruise? Why or Why not? Where would you go?”

And Anoth­er Cruise Ship

Sure. I’d love to take a cruise. In fact, that seems like a love­ly way to trav­el to/through the Caribbean or the coast of Alas­ka. I know peo­ple who have done […]

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.

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.

TotD: Robin Laws on Roleplaying Games

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 […]

Date Night Happiness

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 […]

I Will Try Not to Bore You

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 […]

Gary Gygax Died

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.

Semester done!

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 […]
