I'm on my way home, and not traveling on the weekend for a change. Sadly, the weekend weather does not look good enough for it to matter.

I ended up signing up for [community profile] fandomgiftbox, which is sort of [community profile] fandom_stocking in the summer with slightly different rules. I had fun treating it last year, so why not.

Wish there were more people in my fandoms in [community profile] multifandomdrabble fest. Sign ups open for another day!

I know people have been looking for nice Bill icons from this series of Doctor Who. Here are a bunch made by [personal profile] luminousdaze, along with 12, Missy, Clara and a bunch of the gang.

I really like this essay by [personal profile] lydy: The Rules: A Memo for Every Man in My Life.
Instead, I want to address something that comes up over and over in these conversations, and always from men. "What are the rules?" "How can I know how to behave if you won't clarify what you want?"

Dear men, please do not ask me to provide to you something that I have never had. I cannot provide you the rules. I do not know what they are, and I never have.

Tomorrow I get more injections, yay! PT, ottoman, and building hip muscle are helping my feet. Not eating or speaking is helping my jaw -- which is not tenable, obvsly, ergo the excitement over more injections.

I cannot for the life of me seem able to catch up on my sleep. I know I should go to bed earlier, but L's bedtime is 7:30 now and if I go to bed at 9 like I need to (lights off at 9:30 in a bid for something approaching 8 hours' sleep), that leaves me with 1.5 total hours of Adulting, i.e. doing the dishes and reading meme. And I haven't been doing the dishes.

Today I am dragging hard because last night I took half a night Tylenol, so that I could sleep despite anxiety over today's meeting. Coffee doesn't seem to touch that. Better living through modern chemistry.

So I should be writing but see: anxiety re: meetings, so I will do picky work instead. Trying to get a good clean draft of the creative work so that after the meeting I can work on a master draft as I make edits.

I forget what my point was. Okay, onwards to non-brain picky work. Hope to have it done today.

Yay shorts

Today I got two pairs of shorts and a pair of capris for about $15, and for maybe $20 more got L six pairs of shorts and two new jammies. The wonders of a second-hand store. I can't imagine shopping anywhere else as long as we have a child who outgrows things within months. Plus, I am much pleased that since he is two and shows no preference yet, I can shop for him indiscriminately in the boys' and girls' sections, so tonight he went to bed in yellow jammies that say "Cutie!" across the front, which he chose himself out of the three I offered him. Also, I bought him pink Santa jammies in June, because we roll like that.

I really wish I could wear men's shorts, because they're bigger in the legs and also have those mystical things called pockets, but I'm pretty happy with the pairs I did get. Nice to go for a walk in the evening while not feeling stifled and without my waistband digging in. Plus it's gorgeous out and we recently shifted L's bedtime another fifteen minutes later, so once he finishes his watching time after dinner, we head out around the block, him on his pushbike and me or me&[personal profile] bell strolling along behind. A+ excellent weather, June, plz to continue.

Dungeons and Dragons and Vividcon

Hello fellow Vividcon attendees! Would you like to fight monsters, dodge traps, and solve puzzles? Of course you would! I can help! I'll be running a one-shot Dungeons and Dragons adventure at least one night of the con for 4-6 players. No experience required! I'll provide the dungeon mastering, rules knowledge and some pre-generated characters for you to pick from. You provide imagination! The whole thing should take a few hours at most.

The current plan is to run a session after Premieres on Friday. If there's enough interest, I may also run a game Sunday night with a different module.

Let me know if you're interested in the comments (and let me know your general level of experience with D&D or roleplaying games -- experienced players may get roped into helping less experienced ones sort out the system).

lego harry potter

I bought a used Xbox 360 at the thrift store a few months ago, which has opened up to me the world of gaming. My roommate and I have been enjoying Lego Harry Potter. We started with years 5-7 which I found in a bargain bin, and then moved on to years 1-4.

The game is easy for us to learn, whimsical and funny. It's just plain fun to run around Hogwarts and revisit the story. There are a few parts that are tricky / fussy, especially timed jumping. I realize that platform jumping is a gaming tradition going back to Frogger and Donkey Kong, but it is not friendly to people with arthritis or dexterity issues. I wish games would rely on it less, or have easy jumping modes. Last night I spent way too long trying to jump over a required barrier and got frustrated.

Lego HP requires little to no reading and no listening. Information is conveyed through pictures. So, you can play with the sound off and you don't need captions. There is one game aspect where it's helpful to distinguish red from green (Parseltongue cabinets), but not strictly required. The parts where you fight a "boss" (often at the end of levels) tend to be much easier with two players. This game can be played with one player, but seems designed for two players. Levels are not timed-sensitive-- in fact you're rewarded if you spend more time looking around and exploring. You can't save mid-level, though, so if your game freezes or you have to leave for some reason, you will have to replay that bit of the story.

For my roommate and I--we are novice newbie gamers-- Lego HP has been a really great entry point. I definitely recommend it.

It was supposed to be YOW->YYZ->YVR, but the YOW->YYZ got cancelled. I ended up re-booked for 6:30am tomorrow, but didn't like that choice... so called and am booked instead on the 5:55pm direct (instead of the 6pm departure), in a better class, with a hope of an upgrade. But, maybe stuck with a middle seat if I don't get the upgrade. Overall, I think an improvement.

OH GOD I ACTUALLY FINISHED SLAVEFIC #5

It is a smidge over 49k and, uh, it is going to hurt. A lot.

I would apologize in advance but this is serious “time to own that actually you just like making your characters and readers suffer” territory. :D:
