Hello summer!!

I’m not commenting on the June 17th entry title.

For anyone who was wondering, Jen and I did get to the Gulfarium on Monday, and had a good time, despite the rain! Rain just seemed to follow us that day… Mother Nature would trick us into coming outside with a little sunshine, then bring back the rain clouds.

Despite that, I think we did quite a lot in five and half days! We were out at the beach on three separate occaisions, spent an afternoon at the pool (which was deserted…even the lifeguard left before we did!), biked down to Meigs park, and watched several good movies! Went to go see Troy, too, for that matter, which was better than some of the reviews had suggested. I rather liked it. Anyway, we had a wonderful time!!

I’ve also taken up the DM’s hat again for a while. I’m putting the campaign together myself – and despite having had at least six months’ warning, I’m still playing half off-the-cuff. I meant to write it this spring, but there never seemed to be time or inspiration. Until I starting studying for final exams – go figure. So I took the time to outline it then, and I’m detailing it now. Also tying everying together…. The biggest problem here is that my players can’t interrogate anyone very effectively, because I don’t know the answers, either! Tae and Petra had problems with that today….sorry gals!

I’m about to start school work again. We have to do a lot of the reading and writing for the courses I’ll be taking in England this fall over the summer. That way, we don’t have to lock ourselves in our rooms and do it while we’re there – VERY good. The only tripwire is that I realized (when the first of my internet-ordered textbooks started arriving this week) that I have a paper due at the end of June. It’s not long, but does require a little research, and I haven’t really started to think about it. I’m not terribly worried – I don’t have any other imperatives at the moment – but it did startle me when I saw the due date! I have other papers, etc. to write this summer, but everything else is due in mid-August. Anyway, starting tomorrow, my life is going to be devoted to Jane Austen and the city of Bath for the next week and a half.

Sad. Schoolwork. 🙁


Why aren’t you commenting about Stephen’s title? 😉

OHHHH, I just figured out that “Pulling an Odette” means to completely neglect your blog for a long period of time.

Well, no worries. I’ll be likely pulling an Odette myself for the next two weeks. But Chris *IS* taking his laptop, and it’s wi-fi enabled so it’s possible that I could blog a little bit. We’ll just have to see. 🙂

Pleading the 5th, eh? Well, it is your right.

You bet it is. Actually, I’m highly amused – but shhhhh! nobody knows that.
