I really enjoy blogging, I need to make time to blog more often. It’s difficult though, with work and home and family. When schedules start to get crunched, blogging is the first thing to go.
The weekend of September 24th was the Eat Real Festival in Oakland, which my sister Marcy ran. We met my parents there on Sunday and had an awesome time. The festival was in Jack London Square, entrance was free, and the food was all under $5 (mostly). Corinne loved seeing the people and baby piggies and bock bock chickens. Raelene was finally able to try out the vegan falafel truck she’d heard so much about. I got to drink beer out of aÂ commemorativeÂ mason jar, what a hipster!
Sunday night I went to a concert, the first concert I’ve attended in over a decade. I got there early, grabbed a spot on the frontÂ barricade, and throughly enjoyed the show. It’ll probably be another 10 years or so before I go to another concert, but that’s fine. Music has always been and will continue to be an important part of my life, but I’m getting too old to attend shows regularly.
Last Friday I ran a Trail of Cthulhu game for my normal gaming group. We try to get together once a month to play, usually on a Friday evening. I ran a cold war horror adventure set aboard an aircraft carrier. The players managed to save the world, or at least they thought they did. I managed to work in a cliffhanger ending that I think everyone liked. Everyone seemed to have fun, which is always a good sign.
Okay, I have a post written. Let’s see if we can turn that into momentum…
