Brigid sat curled up on the sofa reading an editorial in the newspaper; Greg, who'd been sitting at the table wearing his headphones and tapping away on the laptop like always, suddenly let out, "Why don't we duh-duh-DO it in the roaaaad? Why don't we DUH-DUH-DO IT in the roaaaad? No one will be watchin' us, so why don't we DO it, in the rooooohooooaaad?"

"Hey!" Brigid called over at him. "That's pretty randy talk for you isn't it, Mr. Courtly Ideal?"

Greg pulled off one half of the headphones. "What?"

"'Why don't we do it in the road?'" Brigid said. "I'd think you'd be shocked and offended by such a breach of ettiquette!"

"Hmph," Greg replied. "The Beatles transcend such worldly concerns, young Brigid!"

"Paul and Ringo are still kicking," said Brigid. "Maybe they'll do a cover of 'I Like Big Butts and I Cannot Lie.'"

"Please. Paul and Ringo? No. The Rolling Stones, on the other hand, I could see it."

"Actually, didn't Spinal Tap do that originally?"

Noodling Around [gaming]

Working on background info for a potential sideline game, possibly for T&T. Note that most of the stuff in here is not terribly original, but it's not particularly intended to be. The setting is a mythic antediluvian Europa/Africana -- before the seas rose, Atlantis fell, and all the world changed its shape. It borrows heavily from classical western mythology, even more heavily from catastrophist crackpottery, and even more heavily still from good ol' Robert E. Howard (but hopefully without the creepy hint of racism that seems to permeate so much of his work). But like I say, its primary purpose is to provide an exciting backdrop for fantasy adventure, not to win a Pulitzer. ;) So Collapse )

Whattya think so far?
