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 the 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 insane trapeze one. But that’s how it goes I guess, and the contortionists were pretty darn amazingly 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 the 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!
