5 Things Update, Some are Spheres, and Some are Spots Edition
current mood: busy
current song: Talking Heads--Drugs (live)
1) Busy weekend: Friday train to boston, bus to Concord NH. Saturday drove to Exeter, picked up Penske truck, drove to Newmarket, unloaded nearly all the contents of my folks' giant storage locker, loaded 50% into penske truck (making it 100% full), and reloaded the rest into the storage locker--me being the only one who could lift much at all, K still being in NJ and my sister being willing to carry the other end of furniture but not boxes of books and suchlike 1-person jobs. Sunday drove from NH to NJ, unloaded the whole truck, and returned it to Penske
2) Scored some great stuff, to wit: a sleeper loveseat, an armchair, a desk, an armoire, a dresser, 3 oriental rugs of varying sizes from small to ridiculous; a set of shelves; a floor lamp; a sidetable; an enormous pub sign showing a White Hart chained; with a crown for a collar; and a coffin.
3) My sister and parents are now at my house, painting as far as I know. Cool! Also, nervous making. They're going to do a ton of work on the place, but it makes me crazy not to be there to approve or deny ideas. Leap of faith!
4) Thinking about starting a gaming blog. Got a lot of edits, playtests, and, potentially, actual games to talk about. Might be a thing. I'm guessing wordpress. In related gaming news, might be joining white wolf and shadowrun games I found on meetup.org. I own piles of whitewolf stuff, ordered a cheapish copy of Shadowrun on Friday. Woot!
5)Got a big project to finish up by Weds for Colonial Gothic, which could be tough with my folks here, and because I have to help K with her evaluations for her flunkies, due by Thursday. And I already have the next Colonial Gothic project to edit, and it's bigger--an actual book this time--the kind that comes out on paper and everything!
