Social Butterfly

I’m still planning to write the next episode in our house game before our third session, but I wanted to share an unrelated bit about my weekend.

One of my players, Darci, had a birthday party on Friday at local pub, the Pour House.  We tend to be homebodies, but since it was Darci – and we think she’s pretty swell – we decided to join her for her birthday celebrations.  I am so glad we did!  We were among the first to arrive (of course), and we got to sit and chat with Darci before too much drinking occurred.  As people arrived, I became slightly more nervous.  I haven’t really done large group socializing for several years.  But since everyone who we talked to turned out to be a nerd, I soon became more comfortable.  We had a great time, and I even did some of that “networking” for my job that I’ve been hearing so much about.

Then, on Saturday night, Hilary and I went on a fantabulous “date night” (something we do not do often enough, probably).  We went to see Sir Elton John, Live in Concert!  Elton was amazing, as expected – a consummate performer.  He played almost everything we wanted to hear, including a couple of slightly obscure tunes that I was pretty sure he wouldn’t play (though I was not surprised that he didn’t play my favorite, “Border Song”, because nobody but me seems to know it).  He only played one of his abhorrent Disney creations, so I count myself lucky in that.  And since we had dinner at my favorite BBQ place beforehand, I think it was a perfect evening.

After all that, I’m exhausted.  I think we’ll do restful things today.  One thing I have planned is to work on our next D&D adventure arc using Masterplan.  If you DM 4E and have not looked at this thing, do yourself a favor and click the link.  This program is the best!  I should really write up a post about how great it is, and probably will in the near future.  And possibly Kureigu will be coming over to just hang out soon.  Should be a restful, relaxing Sunday.   Hope you all had a great weekend!
