Whenever I go to our dev-tools team with environment issues I leave 'em a doodle. I figure if I'm gonna be hanging around them not knowing things, a lil' goblin or mushroom-skull is the least I can do.

A friend of mine is running a survey about cooperative board games. Maybe you'd like to participate to help give a clearer idea how people feel while playing these sorts of games?

Hey, folks, I'm having a bit of trouble making ends meet this month, so if you wouldn't mind buying some of my games at parenthesispress.itch.io or drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/10096/Parenthesis-Press that would be great. And if you aren't in the mood to buy something, could you at least boost the post, please? Thanks a lot!

The latest Codex zine from The Gauntlet has a game that is essentially RPG-ified Guillotine (the card game) and I am so overjoyed by this implementation.

Today I co-hosted the first of five Cooking 101 classes at work! My co-host Jason started us off with some knife safety and basic slicing/julienning/cubing. Then, I walked the class through making a balsamic vinaigrette, discussing emulsions, whisking, the importance of bowl size, tasting as you go, and substitution. We finished by slicing some lettuce and tomatoes to toss with the dressing.

Next week: Guacamole!

Boost this post and I'll tell you what class you'd be in the RPG I've been working on.

Bleh. Cranky. None of my work RPG players told me until today that they couldn't make today's game, and even then almost all required individually being prompted. It's A-OK to need to miss games, but tell me for crying out loud, ideally as soon as you know you can't play. That way I can at least whip up a one-shot for the people who will be around.

How are people finding Role Gate to be? I had done some Play-by-Forum on MythWeavers for a bit and stopped due to some life changes, but now I'm idly considering running something ultralight that I could check on once a day.

Players: "Nah, we don't know whether these doomsday cultists have treasure in their tower. We don't even know if they're bad people. Let's go."

Later, some hermits: "We follow a god of life and death who likes human sacrifice, but we've been out of that game. We just want shelter, food, and to practice our magic. But those cultists are competing with us for the few resources out here, it sucks."

Players: "Human sacrifice, you say? And a rival faction getting in your way? WE HAVE A SOLUTION!"

One of the players in my Labyrinth Lord game set in Yoon-Suin cranks out some great art during sessions. Here is the sheet for her character, Ashe the Trollborn Half-Orc. Also included is a sketch of Spider, a shishi guardian of a hermit the party met tonight.

Trader Joe's now sells "Pancake Bread," which is essentially a buttermilk pancakes & syrup-themed coffee cake. Sooo, now I want to take a slice of the pancake bread and soak it in seasoned egg, and then cook it in a waffle iron. I could have pancake bread french toast waffles. 🤩

Someone left an unerased whiteboard again. Oops, looks like I'm turning it into more cats.

I made a playlist to swap music with a coworker. It's a tour through sludge metal, doom, stoner metal and some psychedelia. The themes are, in order: An intro to sludge with some key players. Chill break with some of my favorite frontwomen in rock. Energy boost with booming bass and driving drums. Sampling of the Savannah/Atlanta Georgia metal scene, home of my favorites. Heavier, shouted vocals. More heavy stuff with distorted instruments. Finally, a wind-down.

Game mashup idea. Dogs in the Vineyard meets Hot Guys Making Out: Dongs in the Vineyard -- Love on the Frontier.

Surprise! I had a perfectly-sized elopement on Saturday! Our party was the minimum size legally required by Massachusetts -- we and our officiant all met on the same day as part of the RPG group I set up when I moved to Boston. Our ringbearer joined the circle later and became a fast friend. Our photographer knew me and Caroline both separately in our home town before we met. She swears she meant to introduce us, but we found eachother just fine, and here we are. <3

Tomorrow marks three complete years with my girlfriend! This also means it has been more than three years since I have lived with cats. The things we do for love.
