back into the usual groove

Given that I had about zero enthusiasm for yesterday’s game going into it, I had a pleasingly good time. Started off by chatting with Eleanor-Elise about nobility, segued to convincing Mantokele not to flip out and kill people (well, certain people, anyway — he can kill others), then got sucked into the vortex of “did we mention the world’s coming to an end?” chaoticness. Enjoyed the Areopagos trial (did I even spell that right?), since it gave Ree a chance to express certain aspects of herself that haven’t really been given much of a workout since she came back.

Now I have papers to grade, e-mails to answer, short stories to write, a game to prep — all that fun stuff. (Okay, so only some of it is fun.) I just hope I’m not coming down with the cold/flu-thing that seemed to be plaguing a couple of people at the game (and yes, I use that word deliberately). Because I don’t need that right now.

    It’s not a cold, it’s a White formori plot!

      It’s easy to forget stuff from the beginning of the game when it’s six hours later and your brain is oatmeal. I should have nommed you, too. Christ, who would have thought it — that Ree would find herself arguing in defense of feudalism against democracy.

        What is even funnier is how the rest of the day played out for Eleanor!! She almost lost everything. Now she feels she must play the good little line-toting sidhe. Ree’s words helped her cope with the day. 🙂

      Do we ever. It might be a good thing you had to leave early — I’m not sure all the woodge in the world would have been enough to help me hold you back had you been there when the news hit.
