first entry

What a busy weekend... Why am I taking the time to do this?

My legs ache. I played one of those exercise video games at the movie theater the other day after Ocean's 11 (no, not DDR, this one involved dodging really slow bullets coming at you while shooting bad guys.) Next time, I need to stretch before and after.

Ocean's 11 was pretty cool. Next RPG I play in I'm going to model my character after Matt Damon's kickass pickpocket. The movie was so much style over substance, and that was just as it should be. Wow.

Went Christmas shopping yesterday, before going to the Unseen Christmas party. I mentioned it to a certain friend, and she asked if I'd like company. That worked really well, I don't think I would have managed to go through with the whole day without her support.

And I got to get my latest comic book stash from Comicopia! Girl Genius #5 is out, and it's really cool. The color thing is really working well, and Agatha Clay is making a great heroine... Plus we're finally getting some clues to the backplot. Pure genius.

Every time an issue comes out, I resolve to run some kind of Steampunk/Mad Science game. But of course I can't really come up with a decision on this; the way to do it would be to just start writing for one of them and see what happens, but of course, that would take time.

Or something.

Anyway, this morning I had a good little talk with awfief and got convinced to start up my livejournal. Wahoo. Thanks!

Too much to do already, and things are starting to fall through the cracks. Missed one party yesterday and now there's an impromptu D&D run I'm missing for another party tonight. My D&D-playing friends just toss up this run and expect me to have no other plans, it's kinda weird. I didn't think I had much of a life, but there it is...

Just came back from some Christmas shopping, instead of going to work today. A twinge of guilt there, but man, I'm in between things right now and starting the next bit up on Monday morning seems easier than starting it up on Sunday afternoon. Maybe I'll do a little work now, I guess the stuff I just finished could use some cleanup. It'll be all right, I'll work long this week.

Except Tuesday, when I'm playing Traveller. Time to see if we can get our ship out of this infested system in one piece. *shiver*

This has been a bit of a flirty week for me, online. Weird.

Time to prep for the party tonight... Need to bring some foodstuffs.

ok

it's all going to work out... ready to go to the party, hang out... no pressure, finished the test suite for work, all set to go off.

I hear my housemates getting ready to play D&D... there's a slight urge to punt the party and bring out a sorceror, but I'm resisting.
