Kero asleep

The Zombies Were All Around the Table

Rough night for gaming. camstone got waylaid by a cabinet and couldn't make it; sirfox, laurie_robey, and I were all zonked; and about 2/3 of the way through the session, jamesbarrett came down with a sudden cold.

On the upside, the dice were very nice to us. I don't think I've seen so many 20s in one session. We mowed through the monsters like so much dead grass. Too bad all we got for our trouble was 206 XP and a nauseated sorcerer. Still, Celedras got to run around being shooty, even getting to ride around on his horse being shooty (a rare treat), although I think I forgot to figure in the penalties for shooting from horseback. Doesn't matter, really tho -- when I hit, I hit by something like 15+, and when I missed, I missed completely.

Ah well. Next week I'm hoping to get my game running again, assuming we can all make it and the world doesn't explode. I know jamesbarrett has been itching to play his wizard character again.

But now ... bed.

Tomorrow ... phone repair. And drawing.

G'nite world, and have an awesome tomorrow!

Today was Phone Day. Went to the Verizon Wireless store and bought a new cellphone. I didn't want to particularly, but my previous one had pretty much stopped working, anywhere. Apparently the antenna was more broken than I thought it was. Now I've got a new one that's all black and gadgetey looking. I didn't really care for any of the choices ... I liked my lil' Kyocera, even if it was always iffy getting ringtones for it. It was still a "friendly" phone, which the new one isn't. The new one is a "sleek, elegant" phone. Bleah.

Then we went to Home Depot and, on the advice of a very thoughtful Verizon tech who didn't want to charge us $90 for 10 minutes' work, bought a new phone jack to fix the "no signal getting through" problem we'd been having since moving in here. At first it didn't work, but that was because I didn't realize that for the type of jack we bought, we needed to strip some of the wiring in order to connect to the terminal. (The old jack was a "pinch" type, whereas the new one just had screw-down terminals.)

So now we can be harassed by sales calls again. Hooraaaaay. But more importantly, we can call for pizza, which is what we did this evening. ^.^

laurie_robey spent some time today working out in the yard, as well, and I did a little more cleaning up around the studio. Still a long way to go, but we're gettin' there.

G'nite, world. :) Have an awesome tomorrow.
