I drug my half-asleep ass out of a warm, wonderful bed to wait in the cold for the bus and find out my 8 AM has been cancelled. WHHHHYYYY.
This does give me time, however, to nap in the IMU and plan various gaming things out/sketch, which pleases me immensely as my gaming-blah has been reinvigorated by a solstice of fantastic sessions. The 1940's game is pure pulpy joy, even if we havn't had *too* much time to play, and our group meshes really well. I'm going to have a lot of fun molding Barty from whiny emo boy to slightly less whiny, still probably emo, but infitely cooler pulp hero boy. In Abberant, I killed Nazis and jumped into Cthulu's living room. The Arcadia game has me pretty damn excited, though I'm still unsure as to *who* I'm going to be playing. I have a good custume idea, too, I just need the time to put it together. Does anyone know where I can get cheap silk/vinyl autumn leaves? Hobby Lobby had prices that were stupid high, but I haven't been to Jo-Ann's or Michael's yet.
The two games that have me most excited, though, are Memento and Exalted. I have had so much fun playing Bethy's various itterations through history, but GOD, do I love her original character. I settle into her head so easily, and she's a delight to play, even when she is upsetting every other party member. Bethy is my oldest changeling character, too-- when I first got the books when I was in middle school, fishing them out of the recycling center, I immediatly went home and made up a cast of characters for Bloomington. Bethy was the first one I ever made, and I'm so glad I finally get to play her. Most everyone else from that time has now found a home in London too, as NPCs.
As for Exalted, I had my first session running last night, where I helped my players build their chracters, talked to them about how I want to run and explained about the world situation. I have a fairly large group-- six players!-- and not a whoel lot of time in which to run, but they seem really excited about it, so I'm happy. I also got to sit down and work out backgrounds with each of them, which surprised one of my players, who had previously just done N00b D&D and was fascinated by this whole 'roleplaying' thing. He mentioned it sounded like his experience in theatre was going to be a help to him, which warmed my little GM heart.
In other news, my computer is still down, though not out, despite the great efforts of kniedzw
. Appearently, it is a possibility my hard drive never actually died (WHICH MEANS I STILL HAVE MY PORN OMG!), since it looks like my motherboard is fried. This does mean that I have to get a new motherboard, which sucks, however my old HD might still be working, and that does *not* suck, plus I have the new one I bought. I am reluctant to return it, as it was a good deal, and it will leave me with two hard drives, an 80 GIG and a 200 GIG, making my goal to have the biggest music depot in Bloomington a possibilty instead of some distant fantasy. (It is true that the money spent on that could instead go to furthering my goal of owning one top, bottom and pair of panties for every day of the year, but the music one I can actually share with other people ((panties not withstanding))
Finally, um . . . I have money, which means I have food, which means I am happy, and OH, I have Lost season II, which makes me UBER happy. And for those who saw the Lost season premiere last night: What. The. Shit. I think at this point they need to rename the show in general: OMGWTFBBQ, 9:00 Wednesdays on ABC!
