Had a great trip to AR last week, though I still haven't recovered. Was good to see Sheri's folks over the holiday.
Got to go caching a couple of times while out that way; that was pretty awesome, too. I've now been all over the parks around Bull Shoals, AR. Was cold and somewhat wet, but I was 11 for 11. Hannah and I went on a short trip in Branson, MO, too.
Didn't play *quite* as much minecraft over the break this time around.
Sheri got me the Numenera core book for Christmas, and I've been reading through it. I think it might be the system/setting where I finally actually do something with my ideas for a Myst-like game. Got some other cool stuff, too - some old movies I wanted, a penguin hat and 7 Wonders to name a few.
Went up to IN over Thanksgiving (just realized I haven't posted anything since then), and that was a good time, too. Got to see family, and dad & I had a great time out caching again this year.
Now You're Older Still
So I guess I'm 35 now. Had a birthday back in there somewhere (probably on the 18th - that's when it usually is). Adam gave me a pretty sweet geocaching shirt, and Sheri got me a walking stick, a headband/ear-cover and some other caching stuff. Hannah gave me a new set of dice. Also, "birthday crackles" is a great tradition.
At The Table
Our D&D game continues to go strong, though I've been working on at least 3 other games here and there as well. Steve - our remote player - had to drop out due to work-related busyness, unfortunately. I like how I'm running this game in particular, though the layers of causality get a bit dizzying at times. That's not a bad thing, though.
Talk of RuchtCon V has begun as well. I decided a while back I was going to run a game of Retrograde (FATE Core) this year.
A Tune In My Head
I'm hoping to do something with music in the coming year. I've been kicking around some ideas for a while now, but I haven't yet made time to really flesh any of them out. That, and my "space" in the office is in...disarray...to say the least.
I'm still working on a B-day present. its just...in the mail???
Pffft. Man, I owe you so many favors, you've got no "obligations" to me. Anyway, I've always thought gift-giving would be much more fun if it was a bit less...codified. Oh, I did forget to mention in the post that Hannah actually *found* a couple of the caches when we were out. I pointed her to the pile of rocks, but she actually saw it first. :)
