Still in my reclusive homebody phase. Planned on going to Kommencement last night, but when it came right down to it, I just wasn’t in the mood. Dunno what’s gotten into me, but it’s OK; I’m having plenty of fun regardless.
Most of you know by now I’m actually a pretty sorry excuse for a nerd. Never read comic books, never role-played, not a huge anime fan, only an occasional gamer. Not a true dork, just a remarkable simulation! Of late however some concerned associates have taken pity on me and set out to remedy the situation. Saturday saw me on unfamiliar territory – setting foot in a comic book store, in search of dice. I’m glad shadowandlight and avivahg dragged me in there, too – they had a great selection of Cheapass Games. I picked up a copy of Kill Doctor Lucky while I was there. Who wants to test it out with me?
The nerdification of Avdi proceeds on multiple fronts. shadowandlight has me reading the AD&D Player’s Guide in preperation for my roleplaying initiation. I also picked up a used copy of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, which is surprisingly fun for it’s utter simplicity. What’s more, avivahg has taken quite a liking to it, and with it’s two-player co-op mode it’s one of the few video games she and I can really have fun playing together. Also, while I declined to attend Otakon, my resistance to all things Anime continues to be steadily worn down. avivahg has hit upon the sure-fire strategy of using Hentai to pique my interest. How can I resist, when boobies are involved?
Also: saw The Village. So happy I did. What a beautiful movie. I wish I could write more about it, but “beautiful” is the only word that keeps coming to mind.
Partially inspired by the lead character in that movie, I’ve been developing a roleplay character in my head. I’m still fuzzy on the technical aspects, but fleshing out the general background has been fun. Yeah, I could get into this stuff…
Just to annoy all the single people on my friends list, I’d like to mention I’ve been having some terrific sex lately. avivahg and I spent an enjoyable hour or so browsing bondage gear on various web stores yesterday. Oh, the fun we’ll have… We’ve also been patronizing the local adult video store. *sigh* one of these days I’ll get around to writing my lenthy rant on why porn sucks… Not to mention, out of a whole store they have maybe 7 Hentai flics. WTF is up with that?
And that’s my update for today. Be excellent to each other,
