Greg, lying back on the couch with his feet splayed out into the room, said, "What a night. The drama llama and the fail whale rode a roflcopter over to the lolrus's house."

"This," said Alex, slouching next to him in a very similar pose.

Brigid, slumped down into a nearby easy chair with a glass of spent ice, just looked over at them through narrow slits for eyes and said, "Fail."

"Irascible Brigid is irascible," said Greg.

"Quote for truth," said Alex.

Normally, when I get the urge to play D&D, I prefer to be either the tactical leader type, or the axe-wielding barbarian. The former, because it's closer to my native personality, and the latter because I generally get the urge when I need to blow off steam.

For some reason, I'm currently assailed by the desire to play a halfling rogue. I could fire up LotRO and try a hobbit burglar, I suppose, that's not what I want. LotRO can be a fun diversion, but it's not real gaming and never will be ... besides which a) I've done the Shire twice now and don't think I could bring myself to do it again any time soon, and b) I'm looking for more of a D&D-type experience than a Middle Earth experience. (And I don't mean a 4E "move your mini around the map using at-wills, encounters, and dailies, and every encounter is perfectly balanced" experience, either. But I won't get into that rant here. I think what I want would be best served by an old-school game, like Tunnels and Trolls or the original RuneQuest, although a 3E or Saga Edition game would work.)

Having said all that, the next gaming on the schedule is for me to run the second half of the current Star Wars adventure tomorrow night anyway, unless it gets snowed out, which is a distinct possibility, or I decide I just don't have it in me after the past week, which is also a distinct possibility. Suffering from some burnout and lack of sleep, here.

Maybe I'll hit Game Parlor on the way home just for the fun of it, and try to get to bed early.
