Project Rooftop, Game-Chef, etc.

Well, sadly, I didn't get a mention so far in the Project Rooftop Iron Man contest. Honorable Mentions are coming up next week. The artwork of the ones posted is amazing. I'm not all that fond of the winning entry.

The Game-Chef 2008 competition was very interesting. The results of the art contest will be posted tomorrow morning. My artwork was used to create a game called Dulse, by Jason Morningstar. Fascinating idea. Two other people used my artwork as well.

This past Saturday's game was so much fun. We're going to find someone thought long-dead, but who may be imprisoned in Oubliette in the Underdark. Our guide to the Sunless Sea is none other than Meepo!! As voiced by Scott, he's somewhat of a LOL-Meepo (who insists his name is pronounced “Meppo”). What's so great about this is that Meepo figured in the very first D&D game we played, pre-Janica. I ran The Sunless Citadel module. Another interesting turn of events was that, while searching for a guide in the undercity section of Alliance, we went into The Common Ground, a coffee bar. Mordecai ordered coffee, and the bartender kept questioning whether or not he really wanted it. Seems he had met, somewhere along the way, another glimmerfolk who “only ordered water and expected it to be free.” I figure Mordecai's mentor had introduced him to coffee early on. Scott said Mordecai remembered that glimmerfolk religious dietary restrictions forbid coffee and tea, holding it “tainted.” We also discussed how Mordecai's soul orbs (3 2-inch diameter violet globes that orbit his head at a distance of about a foot) will certainly stand out in the Underdark. 

And Saturday is Free Comic Book Day! 

Oh, a scary episode of Big Bang Theory last night. I loved the time machine. The scene where they were speeded up while the time machine was going back in time was priceless. But the getting rid of stuff part was scary.


Thomas' heart catheterization went well yesterday, and turned out to have been a false positive. His bypasses are clear. Huzzah! He's doing his requisite 24 hours of bedrest today. SO glad that's over with. 

More 1776

 Here's a photo Rick sent of him in costume. Gorgeous detail!


 Rick and Jeanette appeared in 1776 at the King Center once again. Here's Rick on the far left (I forget who he played) and Jeanette as Abigail Adams, looking really beautiful.

Ahhhh, Friday!

A day for goodly yummy intarweb stuff: Retro Thing! Full of shiny goodness!

I'm feeling better today. Thomas bought a new laptop at last (Vaio again–old one's fan was making loud noises). We solved the Revize problem yesterday, almost by accident (“We”, uh huh). Sadly I have a meeting from 1-3 this afternoon, making my hoped-for early escape impossible, but wot-ev.

Gaming tomorrow!
