'cos Everything Changes (Whu-Ooooaaooh!)

Just finished another session of jamesbarrett's Pathfinder game (in which I play my "Rarity-as-drow-bard" character Obsidian). Our current adventure is a rather mysterious intrigue affair involving peculiar events at a large agricultural complex (essentially an enormous farm run by four different families of competing houses). The previous session was mostly a collection of odd events that didn't parse, but this session we finally worked out that there are a pair of dopplegangers working some sort of scheme, and that there are some elements related to a large dark cult that we tangled with in a previous adventure which may more may not factor into the dopplegangers' scheme. It's certainly a very different sort of adventure from the kind jamesbarrett typically runs, and we're enjoying it quite a bit. It's also a type of adventure Obsidian is well suited for, having a slew of knowledge and social skills but being little more than a lead weight in combat.

When the other players got to our house, they were all mystified (or at least surprised) by our rearranging of furniture, although it's actually rather minor so far compared to what's still to come. Tomorrow I am ordering my new art-table-cum-computer-desk, and we are going to start working on making a place for it. It will replace my current OMG huge drafting table which, as much as I love it, is freakin' ginormous and takes a lot more space than it has any reason to.

(If you are somewhere in the area and have use for a 5'x3' drafting table, let me know, I am looking to sell it.)

To make room for the new arrangement, at least one old desk is going to the curb, one 6' long hutch is probably going to be mothballed (somewhere), a lot of my old gaming books are going to be eBayed or otherwise disposed of, and a lot junk needs going through, sorting out, and disposing of. So that's going to be a big project over the next few weeks, interspersed with that commission I need to finish for Foalpapers and just the general stuff of life.

Finally, going along the theme of "everything changes," I got a new haircut today of a style I've never tried. Whattya think?

Crrrsh! There goes the monitor.

you definitely look younger especially with the spectacles. Another great picture by Miz Laurie...(grin)

The eyes, though, have a demonic/evil look to 'em...

My pappy would have said it like this......"looks like you combed your hair with an egg beater".
Don't look a day over 40....*ducks*

477% humidity yesterday. I'm lucky my hair didn't turn into an afro.

That haircut is NOT your style.

Aww! Well I don't think they can paste the other stuff back on at this point.

Most of the time I don't like short cuts (so to speak), but this one is an interesting change. :)

It looks like a good cut for someone who wears hats.

CRAP! I just realized that sounds like an insult, like "You have a perfect face for radio."

I didn't mean it that way at all. I meant that having it short on the sides and back, but longer on top (which is how I wear MY hair) makes it easier to wear a hat without having "hat hair" when you take the hat off.

Hee. :) Thanks!

As much of a proponent of short hair that I am, I think I'm undecided until I see it in person. Overall I like it, it's youthful and playful with the carefree waves. But since you like to be Mr. Dapper Gent, I'm not entirely sure it'll jive with your favorite wardrobe. We'll see. But still, congrats on trying something new :-D
