Lol Big gun, thanks letting me know about the month mistake in the first post which I've now fixed, that is what happens when you write monthly chat topics while tired.
Sorry your school is so dull, even the reunion parts of it.
Well the concert today wasn't too bad, though a lot of the audience were eldily and not extremely well, still I think they enjoyed it (one man, who was clearly very unwell sang along with everything, which makes us pleased).
When we got back we were both pretty tired, and after some coffee, balies and chocolate cookies I proceeded to crash, which is probbably not a great thing to do at six pm but hay.
books wise, I'm still alternating between reading Sanderson's Stormlight archive with my lady, with plans to go on to the third book when we've got through the first two and continuing with George r r martin's book of short stories. One of them succeeded in making me cry which shows it was a good story since that doesn't happen often and only with extremely! well written stuff.
Gaming wise I've been trying various things. One thing which surprised me recently is the flexible survival mud.
I tried the single player game a few months ago to see I could now cope with it being as Mrs. Dark has dealt with my genophobia, and actually found if you can get over the rather overthetop sexual stuff, there is a pretty good rpg in there.
I initially tried the mud because I wanted to add some info to the flexible survival wiki and the only way was to have a character on the mud, then found the mud, like the single player game is pretty awesome with a really nice community and probably the most unique combat i've ever seen in a mud game, hell it's the only mud I know with truly turn based combat, and even partly a browser game element that you can play while idle which is cool.
Indeed, even given the theme of the mud and the fact that some people do engage in sexuallly explicit roleplay, I have been amazed at how nice the community have proved to be.
A very odd discovery indeed, and also nice to know my genophobia hasn't made me miss out on a good game.
I've also been playing a bit of cosmic rage and debating whether to start a factory or not, though I'm tempted to wait until I've leveled far enough to be able to access planet chunks and thus get more access to harvested resources, still we'll see, since the idea of owning my own factory does rather appeal to me and I very much want to try the crafting out in the game.
I'm also debating having another bash at avalon with what Mirage said about the character generation process, since I know there is a very awesome game in there if I can get past the initial hurdles, and of course there are plenty of good audiogames kicking around as per usual, many of which need db pages, so lots to keep me busy.
With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
