I swear I blinked and two months flew by undetected. It’s like when you wake up 15 minutes early and you’re like, “Whatevs, back to sleep. I’ll just wake up exactly on time.” Yeeaaahhhh, I put too much faith in my internal clock. I mean, it’s usually got my back… usually. How is that like missing two months of posting on my blog? Umm… uuummmmmmm… I guess I just expected my brain to post in a timely manner when I wasn’t expecting it? I love you, Procrastination. You’re always there for me.
I have been playing games, though. Best believe that, boo. GABLARGH! I need to talk about the amazingness of Orccon, but then International Tabletop Day is tomorrow!
First of all… OrcCon was hella cool. I am now a big fan of Strategicon. They have awesome pricing. If you’re a member of BoardGameGeek or of a bazillion other choices, you get a nice discount. I’m talking three Strategicon conventions for $100. Like whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! Buying just one weekend pass with the discount is $45. So, that’s a friggin’ awesome deal, yo. I’m about the Savings life, y’all. That said, I totally forgot to take advantage last time… I’ll post a separate, more in-depth, post about OrcCon. Just in time for you to plan your trip to the next Strategicon event, Gamex, which is on Memorial Day weekend.
I haven’t even gotten to play them all, damn it. I have been absolutely STUCK on Sheriff of Nottingham. That is my motherbleepin JAM! THAT IS MY JELLY! It’s bluffing, it’s swindling, it’s lying and cheating. SHOMYGAWSH, I love that game so much. Me playing is just nonstop maniacal laughter. I’m really going to try to play other things tomorrow for International Tabletop Day, but I can’t promise anything. The gaming menu so far consists of Avalon, Marrying Mr. Darcy, Sheriff of Nottingham and MAYBE Seasons. I was thinking of playing the Game of Thrones board game to prep for the season 5 premiere, but I might just save that for Sunday.
Tomorrow’s boardgame bash should be a cool little shindig. I’m expecting quite a few noobz- my super gorgeous coworkers who have patiently listened to all my gushing about gaming. It’s about to go down, y’all. Some of my regular (not-so-new-anymore) buds will be there and my new geek boyfriend. He’s not new to geekery, believe me, but he is new to my collection… a collection which now equates to one dood. Oh, monogamy, you greedy fool. You know he’s a keeper if, to him, ‘sports’ means StarCraft competitions. I’m not even playin’. /swoon
That’s not the only distraction in my life, though. World Literature, Statistics and Chicano Studies are kicking my bootsy- the other three classes are easy… I’m tutoring students with learning disabilities now. I’m working like craycray. Soon, I’ll hear back from the universities that I applied to transfer into. This is an exciting time, y’all! That said, my writing needs to hold a special place in my day. Sheeeeeeesh. Self-care, people. Don’t see about it- be about it.
