It's 3 in the morning.

I got up at 7:30 (after getting in from the airport at 1am) and, other than a couple hours of quality time with my kid, worked pretty much nonstop until 1am. Now I've been trying to wind down for a couple hours, skimming the pages and pages of my flist I've been too busy to read.

I have 15 hours of work to do tomorrow.

Self-employment: the fun just never stops.

I'm in this weird sleep-avoidance mode where I can't work anymore but I also can't let go enough to fall asleep.

So it seemed like the perfect time - after being reminded of the infamous Gazebo encounter while catching up on DM of the Rings (my favorite webcomic after Home on the Strange)...

I thought that this would be a great moment to mention that in our last RPG game session, we actually got to attack the darkness. Yes, Ferrett set us up in a situation where Great Evil was lurking just out of sight in The Darkness.

And damned if we didn't get to attack it.

And damned if attacking it actually worked!

I love role playing. It's like being a kid playing make believe again, except with a lot cooler stuff than we thought of when I was a kid.

Geek cred! Represent!!!

Man, I wish we could go to Origins....

Your geek-fu is strong.

But seriously. You kinda have to let it go sometimes.

Mzwyndi and I are developing a character class called, we think, The Dire Secretary today. When we get done we can do the Self Employed Lawyer. You would never get the first attack, but then you would get the next 6, so I think it would even out.

"Dude, she hit you with a Change of Venue, asked the judge to recuse himself and just handed you a motion to suppress all evidence. And she has three more to go. I say you use your Charisma to convince her client that you want to settle before it gets really ugly..."

I am going to spend all day giggling about the Dread Lawyer Zothe.

"Good night, Wesley. Sleep well. I will most probably subpoena you in the morning."

I fight with that constantly. It hits especially hard if I haven't been as productive as I think I should have been, even though staying awake longer will only serve to siphon away the next day's productivity as well.

If you know a good solution, please post it!

I actually managed to get in another hour of work, then felt accomplished enough to sleep.

Of course, the alarm clock came on the other side of that WAY earlier than such things should happen.

Why CAN'T you come to Origins?

It'll be fun. People you know will be there.

We need to work on a Dread Lawyer Zothe after we get done with the Dire Secretary. See my above comment.

No, I think the character class is just "lawyer". KISS.

No fair

I really miss playing. Especially now since I just spent the last two days hanging all my fantasy art work in my new house. Alas, this is not RPG land. This is kill things and mount them on your wall land. Too bad. Maybe I'll meet up with some geeks at University. Of course, I'm as old as their parents so that could be awkward.

Re: No fair

Sweetie, don't worry; I'm old enough to parent about half our friends. It works.
