With a single computer running in the house it’s difficult to keep this blog up to date, but the end of that is near. I can feel it. I hope to have the desktop computer up and running before January 4th. Yes, you can quote me on that and hold me to it. 🙂
Here are some highlights of the past few weeks. On the 11th I went to Add-on-Con, which was educational and interesting.
On the 13th we drove down to Santa Cruz for some relaxation and a holiday cookie swap party. Yum! So much cookie goodness, and Corinne was a little angel the entire trip.
The 15th was my sister’s birthday. Happy Birthday Marcy! We’re glad you enjoyed your pie plate!
Last Friday Raelene and I went to theÂ Cirque du Soleil show in San Francisco. It was amazing, although I’m a little bummed that we saw a contortionist act instead of the crazy insaneÂ trapezeÂ one. But that’s how it goes I guess, and the contortionists were pretty darn amazinglyÂ flexible. People shouldn’t be able to bend like that.
On Saturday I ran a CthulhuTech game in a friend’s creepy Berkeley basement, which was a lot of. The game was a prelude to a longer, once-a-month-or-so game I hope to run. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves, which is the point. I wasn’t as prepped as I would have liked, but that really forced me to think on my feet and go outside my comfort zone. It was easier than I thought it was going to be, and I think I’ve really hit a new level in my GM’ing. Of course it helps that I was gaming with guys who are amazingly good players.
Sunday evening we took Corinne to Tilden to see theÂ lights at the Carousel. She was tired and a bit cranky, but once we got there she just sort of stared at everything in awe. We didn’t tempt fate with a carousel ride, she was too tired for that. Maybe next year.
Other than the normal Christmas shopping madness, I think that’s it. Happy Solstice!
