Survived Intercon O -- a lot of fun, but presents the socialize vs sleep problem. Also, a slow drive home, as we all wanted to arrive intact.

I was:

On various panels and in the audience of various panels for Precon
Various roles in The Tales of Irnh on Friday night
GM covering mostly rooms and items in Presque Vue on Saturday morning
Penelope Printemps and Millicent Wintermute in 'Tis No Deceit to Deceive the Deceiver on Saturday afternoon, and got all my songs in, appropriately timed
Eshe Kamon in (re)Course on Saturday evening
Up Way Too Late Saturday / Sunday
Margaret Wade in This Time For Sure

Not a bad game among the ones I played. Now, I have to answer one post-game questionnaire and help tweak another.

Sounds like a good time was had, if a busy one.

Dreamation -- played Urban Shadows (we were so the guys that Harry Dresden kills deaddeaddead), sleeping in, Fate: Swashbucklers in Spaace (where my "losing" the game meant a century of peace), NBA: Stoker: First Blood (Dracula Dossier!), breakfast with conversation (1776 Leverage, yes, please!), NBA: Screaming Skin (with interesting post-game comments about how to tweak that), Fate: Romance in the Air ("here's a fate point, because that's great, and here's another if you continue to say things that don't clear up the misunderstanding -- and here's one for you if you don't seek clarification"), Monsterhearts: Loveland (oh, we would so watch that series -- want more!), sleep, breakfast conversation, more sleep.

The games brought on the awesome.
The bad was waking up several times gasping for air -- next time, water bottles for the humidifier or a wet towel.
The weather was oddly nice.
Now, to run around like a headless chicken counting down to Intercon O.

In the US, store clerks already ask for e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and zip codes.

Hey, says Google+, you want to be interrupted with What's New and forced to search for the thing to click on to get to Google+.

Why no, no I don't. Google+, are you trying to make me dump you? Keep it up.

I think Google may be learning the wrong things from Facebook...

Diane and her guests discuss the history of fairy tales: where they come from, what they communicate about morality and sexuality, and their relevance today.

I have 2 GM manuals for our larp. They need to get a table of contents, and there may be more bits to go in them, but they're now two notebooks, not a huge messy stack of papers.

T-3? 2? to Intercon O. I need to:

Finish stuffing character packs and GM manuals for Presque Vue, and while I'm doing that, figure out what order things go into the manuals in, and which memory packs for the character sheets various things go in (as Presque is one of our amnesia larp games -- we currently have 3).

Figure out what is left to print for that game, and what else goes into the containers we took from Fearless Team Leader's house.

Figure out what, if anything, I have to print for the larps I'm playing in -- Tales of Irnh, 'Tis No Deceit to Deceive the Deceiver, (re)Course, and This Time For Sure!

Memorize the one song for 'Tis No Deceit that I don't quite have down -- I'll have the lyrics to everything, of course, but the less I need them, the better, with the possible exception of one song where it might be funnier to keep referring to them.

Bring in laundry!

Figure out costuming for all of these. Buy anything needful.

Pick up food that will travel well.

Review Precon schedule and make notes for the panels I'll be on.

My friend now has until Thursday to declutter. She is willing to pay $10/hour for help Monday / Tuesday.

Boosting signal for a friend in Brooklyn who's been told she needs to declutter significantly in about a week or face eviction. She says, "It doesn't all have to be heavy lifting.  Doing research, making phone calls, maybe driving, might all come in handy." Contact me if you can help -- this is one of the people who helped me get things rolling when we had to clean out my parents' place.

I took a stab at statting out some of the characters from Dorothy Dunnett's The Game of Kings in Fate Accelerated. NB: I've only read the first two books.

#3x3RPGs Hm. Most recent? d20 Craft (aka d20 set in the world of Max Gladstone's wonderful books), Call of Cthulhu (17th century setting, and things went Oh So Wrong -- great game), and TimeWatch / Trail of Cthulhu: Arkham in Fall (where things going right involved a very high death count -- Yay!)

By tonight, that list will be incorrect already. Yay!
