Self-Portrait 3

Stream of consciousness notekeeping.

Off the top of my head:

-- Had a great time on my trip this weekend. I enjoyed the trip to North Carolina as much as I enjoyed the stay and the wedding, in spite of the fact that the trip took sixteen hours up and another twelve back. It's very gratifying to know that I have friends that I can spend an entire day cooped up in a minvan with and only encounter a minimum of grating on each others' nerves.

-- I took a bunch of pictures at South of the Border on the way up. I'll put them up here if I ever get motivated enough to put together a geoshitties page or something for online picture storage.

-- Andy's wife seems nice enough on the face of it, but the fact that he refers to his workshop as "my doghouse" doesn't fill me with hope.

-- I am far, far too emotionally invested in the fictional goings on of Rory Gilmore's life.

-- My Wednesday night HeroClix group seems to be barrelling headlong into mutating into my Wednesday night Halo group, I would guess at least partially due to the fact that Sam's incessant rules lawyering has soured me on HeroClix, almost certainly for good. If I could find a couple more people to sucker into playing I'd try to turn it into a role-playing group. I've got an idea in the back of my brain that I think would make a really good game, an amalgam of the Hellboy and Buffy the Vampire Slayer universes with a healthy dose of John Woo's "heroic bloodshed" thrown in for flavor. I started thinking about it on the way back from Atlanta, and I've fleshed it out to the point where if I don't do something with it it'll never leave me alone.

-- Last night, I had an extremely vivid dream that Sarah Magargee's mother had died. Very disturbing, especially since I can't remember the last time I thought about Sarah Magargee or her mother.

-- All things considered, I spend far, far too much money on things that I really don't need.
