I didn't get any sleep during the night before Christmas, so I was pretty much a zombie the entire day. Yay.
Other than that it wasn't bad.
Ok, ok, here goes:
The first seven (7) people to respond to this post will get something made by me.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year (2009).
- No requests-- it could be anything. It may be a mix CD. It may be a poem.
I may draw or paint something.
I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
The catch is that if you don't re-post this offer, the bargain is void!
Comments are screened, leave your address, although some gifts may be easier to send electronically.
Help! I've spent the last three weeks trapped in a cellar after my robot clone rebelled against me. I think Y2K came 9 years late or something? Anyway now he's pretending to be me and saying I don't exist and he's taken over my life! You have to stop him! I don't know how much time I have, he'll figure out I've escaped soon and
There have been some technical difficulties, but they are now resolved. Please ignore any abnormalities that occurred.
Love, your benevolent AI master.
Take THAT, Diablo. You're next, Baal.
Yes I know Diablo II came out eight and a half years ago shut up.
It's almost 5:30 am and I'm still awake! LIKE THE MOON.
I almost certainly ought to be in bed though. Which I will now go do. I am certain the grammar there doesn't make sense but blergh.
Not that I will be sleeping for long.
The important thing is my printer prints so that's a problem solved and I can look forward to a sleep-deprived long haul tomorrow.
While I enjoy roleplaying, I've never run a game, except for a single L5R adventure as part of a rotating GM system. Yet somehow I have found myself conscripted into running a game this weekend for the OURS Roleplaying Tournament. They were short one game and I made the mistake of mentioning that while I've never done it before I wouldn't mind giving it a go. The really bad part is that the idea I have is a crossover with all five of the new World of Darkness supernaturals (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Changeling and Promethean). So not only do I have to plot out an entire one-shot adventure and create characters, I have to make sure I have a firm grasp on the WoD rules AND on five different systems of mechanics for various supernatural powers, as well as balancing them all, in the space of a single week. Should be fun!
The worst one will be the Mage. Everyone else has "this power does this," but Mages insist on being complicated. Because it's magic.
I may have made it known before that I feel New Years resolutions are a load of crap. They might work fine for some people, and good for them, but to me the New Years seems very arbitrary, and I find I prefer to change whenever I feel inspired to. I've tried resolutions in the past, but they don't seem to hold.
But nonetheless, sometimes I do want to make a change in my life, and end up completely failing to. Day-to-day plans have failed me, in fact, most plans of any type have failed me, even the contingency plans. So I've decided it would be useful to instead give myself monthly goals. These will give me things to focus on and act as a motivating force while still giving myself enough leeway that I don't require every day to follow a particular regimen.
SO! By the end of April I shall:
-Finish painting all of my Trollblood Warlocks, as well as my Krielstone Bearers, as part of a long-term goal to have a fully painted army for TagCon.
-Start working on the Blender tutorials. I'd aim to finish them, except I have no idea how long they'll realistically take, but I'll definitely put the effort in.
-Go for a walk to the water reservoir at least once a week.
-Purchase a new set of drawing or writing implements to replace the ones that have disappeared.
-Upload photos to here and Facebook.
-Rewrite my painfully out of date LJ profile.
It is a simple list, I admit, but I'll add to it as I think of more, and there's not much of this month left. I figure it's a good start though. If this works out, I'll keep doing it in the future, adding ambitions to achieve. Though who knows? I've failed terribly at setting goals for myself in the past.
We succeeded in freeing Don Pedro. Then we put him back after discovering he was horrible, and swore never to unleash him upon the world again.
It was a fantastically fun party. We played Circle of Death, and considering I was drunk before we even started, I ended up drinking a lot. But I'm sure I contributed less to the effort than most. Guitar Hero was played, shirts were removed, terrible jokes were told. Photos were taken.
Cameras will need to be destroyed.
I'm going to Christchurch with Ian and Carla tomorrow and coming back Tuesday. I wasn't going to go up if I had to bus, because it's just not worth $70 to be there for three days, but now that I have a lift I'm all for it.
