First Friday Back

This is the first Friday that I feel physically and emotionally back to form since September vomited onto the calendar year.

Reading: I’m re-reading The Scar and I’m enjoying it a whole lot more this second time around. Bellis is a far more solid protagonist than I remember her. Uther Doul is the character who has changed the most in my mind.

Uther is a 13 year old boy made cool. He has no idea how to talk to girls and when he has to he says things like, “WANNA KNOW ABOUT MY MAGIC SWORD? IT IS SUPER-COOL, FROM THE GHOSTHEAD EMPIRE.” but Uther is so damned cool that he makes that seem almost smooth…almost.

After The Scar re-read, Genghis beckons.

Planning: Lady-friend this weekend, MoBu City tonight and school catch-up this weekend too.

Wearing: Jeans and a brown button-down.

Writing: Tinkering with little text bits of Sorcerer 2289 text and a fantasy story.

And you?

  1. Reading
    “I Killed”. Read almost the whole thing yesterday.
    Next: just rediscovered my local (and excellent) library. I am exporting my Amazon Wish List and using the library’s inter-library system to see how many of these I can get.
    Also, Double Cross 3rd Edition (“Morpheus Powers”), but slow going because of all the kanji.

    Planning
    Finishing up that last chapter of Tenra this weekend, or at least as much as possible.
    My next set at the gym.
    Completing Scenario 1 of Final Fantasy X-2. Go YuRiPa!

    Wearing
    Black cargo shorts, a baseball 3/4 sleeve T-shirt that says “I (heart) Transitive Pictograph Verbalizations”, and my grey-and-orange Vibram low-tops. I’m not planning on hitting the clubs.

    Writing
    Tonight/weekend: Last chapter of Tenra.
    Then implementing last round of editing fixes.
    And finally, helping Orie with her vet-tech homework.

  7. I’m finally ducking my head out of the hole to see if there’s a shadow. Hopefully there will be six more weeks of freelancing.

    Reading: Mouse Guard RPG. We ran through a quick mechanical test of the system on Wednesday just to see how it went and now I can see a whole bunch of things we did wrong.

    Planning: A game convention in three weeks. OMG. Today I have to make terrain for an event I’m running (Thunder Road with an eight foot long highway board) and then I’ll worry about school/freelancing. I also put up a game of Mouse Guard on the schedule and it filled up in a day, so I need to figure out how to run the damn thing. Tuesday night is playtesting night with the group, Wednesday night is Mouse Guard with the wife and sister, Thursday is CthulhuRun. Oh, and tomorrow night is Pathfinder. It’s crazy gaming goodness. Perhaps I don’t want to see my shadow.

    Wearing: An awesome black dress shirt from Old Navy and tattered jeans.

    Creating: Logos, signage, and advertisements for a new bagel store in town; a portfolio website for an advertising agency; some small parts for a children’s music site; a card game about fleecing pilgrims in the late medieval period.
