Scorpion

Catching up...

Thursday was larp planning, and you can see the fruits of that labor elsewhere... Really, I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing. Mage isn't my favorite system, or the one I know the best. What makes me most nervous is that I won't have time to do things right. Luckily, my cohort is well-computer savvy, which will help there. But I *am* excited about the whole thing, and I do miss gaming regularly so.

Last night, headed over to Chez Regent und Dona Quixote to watch The Devil's Backbone again. Was even better than I first recalled. To wit: a.) still rocks, highly recommended, and b.) renews my faith in Hellboy.

Tonight was pho (yay) followed by a performance by Velvet's dance troupe. She was of course awesome, and Malika remains impressively tall and noisy. However, this was a joint performance, with two other dance groups there. I might go on later about the tap group and how this was the first time I can say I enjoyed watching tap dancing (no, really, some of them were damn good.) But I will be trying to forget about the modern/interpretive dance group that was there too, because they were, uh, yeah. Whuf.

More on some of the above later. Possibly.

On this day in 1890, reporter Nellie Bly of the New York World completed her round-the-world journey (which took only 72 days, six hours and 11 minutes.)

Today's must read (but scary): news analysis about intelligence, nuclear proliferation, and who we should have attacked instead of Iraq.

"President Bush is also announcing plans for a $1.5 billion election-year drive to promote marriage. He also wants another billion dollars to send an American to the moon. That's how you know we have a big divorce problem in this country - when it costs more to keep a couple together than to send a man to the moon."
