I Continue To Have A Life

Some things I've done in the past month or so which don't involve work or sitting around the house alone:
  • Hiked around on Lookout Mountain with Thuy.
  • Helped Thuy move.
  • Realized it was my half birthday and I should see a show. Found out Explosions in the Sky was playing at the Ogden.
  • Got started with Thor's GURPS game.
  • Made a character and played a game or two at Keith's.
  • Watched E-Days fireworks at Mines.
  • First Saturday drumming at Witches Brew.
  • Ate vegan (seitan) pizza and hiked from one side of Green Mountain to the other with Zaydie.
  • Played in the first game of a 4th Edition series with Keith and others.
  • Ran the geometry table for Mitchell Elementary's math and science night.
  • Took a day off work to attend the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder. Will write up my notes in a separate post.
  • Chose the wrong parking lot in Boulder, resulting in a Denver Boot, the loss of $65 dollars, and the waste of half an hour while two people failed to unlock the boot.
  • Played games with Thor and his cats.
  • Second Sunday drumming at David and Nanette's.
  • Monday drumming at the Buffalo Rose.
  • Bought well over $100 of used CDs at Twist & Shout and Black & Read on National Record Store Day and 4/20.
  • Third Saturday drumming at Spirit Ways. Talked to Doug.
  • Purchased (among other things) lotus root, frozen jack fruit, preserved duck eggs, bamboo shoots, a case of basil seed honey drink, and a tea set at Pacific Ocean Market Place in Broomfield.
  • Walked up to Green Mountain and then around the neighborhood on Earth Day.
  • Saw Kraftwerk at the Fillmore. Found a place to freeform dance near the end of the show.
  • Hung out with my brother who's going to Boston tomorrow and then moving to Ireland for a while.
  • Danced around to Medeski, Martin, and Wood at Balch Fieldhouse at CU. (Aside from the acoustics, the Fieldhouse is more enjoyable than the Fillmore).
  • Served osimanthus tea from Guilin and stir-fried eggplant/lotus root/bamboo/nuts in a sesame marinade over bean noodles to RPG guests.
  • Took players through the character creation process and ran a fight in a Goo's Noodles and Dim Sum, the first scene in a one-shot Feng Shui RPG story I created.
I'm pretty happy about the themes of gaming, drumming, and hiking, though I want to significantly increase the frequency of the latter. I haven't run an RPG in quite a while, but it went quite well. I spent enough time rereading key parts of the rulebook and thinking through characters that things went fairly smoothly. Hopefully everyone will be more comfortable with the system next time and a combat of mostly mooks doesn't take two hours.

Why are you alone at home?

Please see the FAQ.

There are actually three other guys in the house, but they spend most of the day sleeping under the sink and watching squirrels through the window.

Thank you for sharing. I was a little confused about the whole thing.
