Where Does a Month Go?

It goes quickly, especially when you've got:
  • Snow that lingers on the ground for a month
  • Two darling girls
  • Katsucon 2010
  • A nasty cold that goes through the whole family and has you congested for 2 weeks
  • A sudden chance to go to a hockey game (Caps vs. Hurricanes) that ends with a dramatic overtime finish
  • A new Blackberry Storm
  • Work email access for your new Blackberry Storm (meh)
  • A They Might Be Giants show
  • A Saturday gaming extravaganza!
  • A daughter with a penchant for wandering into your room a half hour before your alarm

I've been left short of time to work on that Zevran story I had started. I am mildly annoyed by both Mary-Sue-ism and slashfic, but that does take several easy tropes and story bits out the window. And of course I like a challenge ... so I'm trying to see if I could make such a thing work while including as few specific details of the Grey Warden (the hero of Dragon Age: Origins for those who are unfamiliar) as I possibly can. So it's back to a more standard Pookah concern: the lives and trials of minor characters. That should be no surprise. I adore Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

Some of the most fun I've had so far is crafting sentences in a Zevran kind of speaking style. He runs on and uses plenty of flowery adjectives and allegories. Okay, so maybe that part's not a challenge for me. But it's FUN. More later.

PS: Big thanks to wmtrainguy and ceri_blue for hosting the gaming event. It was a total blast. I'd been nursing beers all night (seriously, we wrapped up after 4 am) so I'm not sure I fluently said "Thank you" at the end of it.

No thanks needed, 'twas a blast. :)

And we REALLY need to get more co-op snikting done. That was too much fun for it's own good.
