Paul and my superhero LARP worked out really well. The players mostly had fun, there was crazy shit happening, people liked my cake…well, I blogged this the other day. I’m so glad I was part of making that happen, and also yay I achieved something new.
My editing mojo has been good this week. I received some in depth feedback from a reader and I’ve been looking carefully at sentence structure, character interactions and why I have included a smoking scene in the start of Rain. These are good things to think about when editing. I’ve been getting at least a half hour a day in most days this week. Will try for some epic sessions on the weekend.
I really love Hyperbole and a Half. This new article about The Party made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt. Even though I’ve read most of them over and over again they still make me laugh when I read them again.
These Lord of the Rings mini plushies are completely adorable. If someone wanted to buy me them for my birthday I would not cry. In order of preference: Legolas, Gandalf, Frodo then the Orc. Also I really don’t have enough Batman/Batgirl themed T shirts and I need this one.
Honourable Mentions: Mark Reads Harry Potter (a blog post for each chapter, it’s a lot of reading but pretty freaking funny.) 3 ply extra large aloe vera tissues, being in the making sock beasties swing again, sunshiney weather, it not being properly dark even after 6pm, daylight savings starting again this weekend (bad for the earlier wake up time, but good for the sunshiney hours and summer is coming!), fresh squeezed orange juice, eating at Sweet Mother’s Kitchen, new books (Zombies vs Unicorns! ), trailers for awesome sauce new movies (e.g. Trolls) and hot chocolate from Scopa.
