Three books to review (super-late, my bad), another one on the way. Working on plotting my own work and trying put some word down. And the normal 24/7 husband/dad/boss routine. I shall arise. #amtrying
So the original slant of this blog was to recapture my youth…well, my youthful need for good old fashioned comrade and table top gaming, be it rpgs or board. Our gang, friends for decades, most with family, set aside Saturday as our night to get together and game. Well, so far, we have had one night successfully gamed. Tonight, another blow out fizzle poop. The real world rears it’s head, the wife needed a quite night, and truthfully I didn’t mind obliging…because I was looking forward another Saturday night flash challenge by Shock Totem…until I found out that it was a bi-weekly challenge (I’m a noob), and last week was a challenge, so that means…this week…no challenge. Fizzle Poop to that…
So I decided to map out the town for my story (doing that as I type, kind of, well, between key-strokes and ideas). And I made some home-made cereal bars (fantastic). I finished reading a book and will be starting another. The house is clean. Kids, fed and happy. And I’m listening to some kick-buttocks death metal. Oh, and I also did some major work on the family tree.
Plain and simple, this is not turning out to be a successful gaming blog. More or less a wannabe writer’s soapbox.
Trying out my genealogy skills, again, having a pretty good go at the process this time. Family doesn’t help much, but they can give you a butt load of round-about dates and family rumors/legends/dreams. Research, research, and more research weeds out the truth and sheds light on the story out You.
Also, those elders at local Historical societies really know the roots of names and how to work the system…a treasure of usefulness.
This has put my gaming on the back burner, but with that, it has opened up my reading enjoyment. Instead of trying to create a game environment, I have been getting lost in environments that others have created…and tweaked. Such as an ARC of this, and a nice western .
After finishing off my last bottle of Old Grand Dad 100, I figured I stick with Brandy for a bit…seemed like the right move considering winter will never end here, and I feel that Brandy is a good winter/nightcap drink.
Not bad, but not whiskey…in fact, I’ve missed whiskey so much that I started doing shots of brandy! Doh! And then, when I have a chance to either stock up on some bottom shelf rot gut…instead of Old Crow, I go with experimenting with Shellback Silver rum. Why do I just not stick with my favorites….it’s not bad, almost like the opposite of whiskey with a quick burn and heavy vanilla taste instead of vice-versa. But, I really should stick with whiskey…I do the same with Chinese food, always feeling adventurous and ordering something that will remind me why I love Almond Chicken so much.
