So far, today’s been pretty mild compared to yesterday. We had the storms, yeah, but also, I finished off the shelf in the bedroom to put the TV and DVD player on so we could sell the empty file cabinet they were sitting on before. I also went through my clothes closet and my coat closet to get rid of stuff for the yard sale. Seems like I did some other crap too, but damned if I remember. I just remember that by the time 3:00 rolled around, I already felt like I’d been more than productive for a Sunday.

It’s been really slow at work and now I’m working in the lab, where it’s equally slow. I have some stuff that I could be doing in the office, but since I’m not there, I really can’t do them now, can I? I wish I had a DVD or two to watch while I’m sitting in here. One of our lab attendants was REALLY greatful that I have said that they can watch movies on their shifts during the summer. So long as they don’t make it a habit and continue doing so when the real semester starts.

Nick had his game on Friday, and I have to say, for as little experience at running as he has, and being a bit out of practice, he did a damn fine job. I think Craig and Steve were a little put off by the use of the miniatures and grid, but Nick and Sean pretty much learned through RPGA and I have to admit, I really like the extra effect of visualization and strict strategy. I know he’s reading this, and I hope he doesn’t think I’m just blindly praising him. He really did do a good job, especially when he realized that the NPCs don’t really have to have accents so long as we know who’s talking when. There’s no reason a DMs quality should be in any way tied to his ability to affect accents. And I have to say, both combats were extremely entertaining, even though the first was a cakewalk and a comedy of errors; and the second one was a hair’s breadth from killing us outright, I think the both scored high on entertainment. And that’s really the goal, isn’t it. I’m liking my character, but it’s going to take a few more sessions to get into the groove of him.

On the topic of games, I need to get the missive set for the next Spycraft mission. I think I know what I’m going to do with this one, but I need to get all the details down and get as much planned out as possible without turning it into a railroad. It’s been so long since I’ve had an overly succesful game, I hope I haven’t lost my touch. You know, really, I need to write more. Not necesarily for gaming, but just in general. You know flex those creative muscles. Did you know that David Towhy didn’t get his frist screenplay produced in hollywood until the age of 33? I guess I still have a couple years to go. Surely I can write at least as interesting stuff as that.

I actually liked the miniatires and the grid. I personally just rarely feel like I have the space to set one up and I don’t have the miniatures to make using them worthwhile. I actually rather enjoy using the stuff, I just don’t own any of it nor do I really have a place to set it up and get spread out.

well now I know what to get you for your birthday… a custom painted mini!

…either that or the “My inner childs’ a rotten little bastard” t-shirt.
