Weds night, Amber (our chum from Gameboro) showed up, ate pizza, made a d20 modern character, and added laughs. We didn't finish character creation, but had a ball, anyway.
Thurs night, was gaming with Jeff and Trista. Getting tired of DnD, I think, or else I'm just tired. It'll be nice to change genres. I really think I'm tired of coming up with these sweeping plots -- they seem so overdone, a little on the cheesy side. Sometimes individual unrelated stories are nice. Why do I continually come up with feggin' epics? Because I'm a sucker, I suppose.
Well, I finished Edward Lee's *Infernal Angel*. It wasn't anywhere near as nasty as some of his other hardcore horror books, but it wasn't bad. The end was a little bit of a letdown. I started into Brian Keene's *The Rising*, which is playing so far as a smart zombie book -- that is, the zombies are smart. So far, so-so. Has potential, though.
I dove into the Banana story. "Yes, We Have No Bananas" was my Tuesday night project. Got 1200 words in, and haven't had time to look at it since. Cheesy gaming has interfered.
Looks like cheesy gaming will continue tomorrow, with el Jeffe. More DnD; goody dumgrops. I'm not complaining, since it's all well n' good to be playing anything. I'm just grumbling about a genre that has never been my favorite, but seems to be my main outlet lately. Now, if I start writing (and publishing) only fantasy, that will make me a whore, but for now, it's just a way to enjoy a pastime (gaming) with the people around me. Even the d20 modern seems like it will be going fantasy genre for a while. My Gamma World game feels a little too fantasy, too. Sheesh! Makes me wonder if I'm capable of gaming anything else, anymore! :)
Tonight, we go to see a play! *Arsenic and Old Lace*, woo-hoo! It'll be the second time I've seen it on stage. I can't wait!
