And the dice fall…fumble.

First and foremost: I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that’s been following me or otherwise interacting with this new blog. I totally appreciate the visitors and it makes me feel special as heck.

For that you get meerkats…because they’re freakin’ adorable.

So, last night I was craving prosciutto…today it’s D&D. Actually, this one’s been a long time coming, especially since our DM moved down to Warrensburg full-time. I haven’t been able to pick up my fighter since the boyfriend and I had a non-furry roommate. So, it’s been a while. Last night, the boyfriend and I got warning that our DM was going to be in town and wanted to hang out with us. Cue the happy dance!

Well, today, guess where I am? Yup. Sitting in my office writing to all of you. Not that you all aren’t super awesome, but you know…my dice are starting to get dusty. Just sayin’. They’re playing some modern age stuff that I’ve never quite understood. The point of gaming for me is to escape to a world entirely unlike our own. I realize the specific game they’re playing is set in a post-apocalyptic world, but isn’t that half of popular media these days? Zombies, for instance, have gotten to the point that they’re not even nerd or cult property anymore.

Okay, so I did the makeup on that one…but it still kinda exemplifies my point.

I dunno, I’m just for some old school-technology doesn’t exist-magic is integral-the only guns tend to blow up in your face-good times when I’m playing tabletop. Add in the fact that I really don’t know much about guns and, well, I guess my bias is based in something there.

Soooo…instead I killed some more Diablo III tonight. The game is still not growing on me, but I promised a friend I’d at least get through this one part of the game before entirely ripping it to shreds. I’ve been sworn to it gets better, damn I hope so!

And, of course, in other yummy food news…my dog ate the last of our raspberry cheesecake fudge. At least she didn’t eat the plastic it was in…still not looking forward to THOSE poops. I’m just glad there wasn’t any chocolate in it (whew!…I can’t do an emergency vet run right now!).

To everyone who’s been with me and has just joined me…thanks again. It’s time to take the dog out…and then crash.

OH! Also, if you haven’t checked out the blog I contribute for this week…hop to it! Don’t worry, I’ll still be here when you get back. 🙂 My Geekly is a fun one.

In addition, one of the bigwigs at Boom! Studios shared our comic book news show this month…check out the awesomeness!
