I apologize for the delay in posting. We are experiencing operating difficulties. Please stand by.
Rather, I am experiencing operating difficulties. I am having difficulty operating. By operating I mean 'doing my thing'.
The previous post was, in my eyes, a dreadful misfire.
I had hoped to get a discussion going, hoped to receive opinions from my peers, and fellow GMs who may have experienced the same sort of feelings. I received very little response, and one that I receive misunderstood the nature of my inquiry, and put me in a bit of a funk with their comment.
A game I ran last Friday night didn't help matters.
My creative juices sucked dry by the fruit bat of frustration* (there's an image), I didn't have much in the way of a desire to post. I've got a few unfinished drafts in the pipe, but all for this merry month of humor, and I wasn't feeling particularly mirthful.
To add insult to injury, I am almost completely unpacked from my move to my new apartment, and I can't find one of my favorite RPG books. I was looking to do a post on it for this month.
Yeah, not feeling especially full of glee this weekend.
Thankfully, there is always a bright side...
I'll start with the fact that it's Autumn...
More precisely it will be on September 23rd, of this year. I love Autumn. I love the changing color of the leaves, Halloween (or at least the idea of it), the Thanksgiving Holiday (my favorite holiday), and especially the weather. I'll take a million rainy days to the sweltering heat, and disgusting humidity of a New York Summer.
Another great thing about the Fall is that it's Pumpkin flavored everything season, and that always puts a smile on my face. This year's special find, Pumpkin Spice Frosted Mini-Wheats from Kellogg. You might as well have put, 'For Adam' right on the box. So good. Apparently Peanut Butter & Co. makes a Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter. Come Barkley! We seek the Holy Grail!
I got to see two friends of mine on Saturday, teach at the tutoring center today, and mere moments ago I found the RPG book I was looking for.
Things are looking up.
I'm still a little irked by some of my recent game-related experiences, but I can already feel that fading. I'll get over it, and hopefully figure out a way to do something about the less than optimum conditions I am currently faced with RPG-wise.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress...
*Thank goodness this isn't a D&D/OSR blog, right? Fruit Bat of Frustration? You know some maniac would be stating that thing up, but good faster than you can say 'Fiend Folio'.
