round-up of events.

well, there has been some dust-up stuff going on, but lets put that aside (carefully, like a lich puts his phylactery aside) & i'll try to just jot up a synopsis of goings-on. i'm the village pump now, assholes! wednesday was television, & the first with danielle in a long while. we'll see about repeats of that; it might have been the white whale, a rare occurrence never to be repeated except on pain of death. or maybe now. like i said, phylactery, or maybe a vampire coffin. what other things might have happened? it is possible they did! things. but if they did, i don't remember them; i run heavy edit on my brain, everything swarming into some kind of vague puddle of motives & dreamy recollection. saturday i went over to david's for a surprise crash-biff-pow. a quickdraw! in attendance beside my host & myself: dante, first. while it was just us three, we played some halo on david's console, then james & peter & alicia & maggie filtered in, & that was replaced by whiskey & dark city. then some of the first episode of gilmore girls, to curl your toes & put hair on your chest. then i snuck out the back! on my escape i bumped into christopher & he kept me company while i waited for the bus, & i pulled home soon thereafter. sunday! the Game. there were not as many folks present at first, which i thought made for a much smoother playing experience...with, what, six players, the table can get crowded. on the plus side, i am having an enjoyable time playing my character. watching mike dungeon master can sometimes be a strange phenomenon, as i have the eye of a dm, too. for instance, we had a whole to-do with a were-rat in the game, & i recognized some of the frustrations i had as a dm & that my players had with me as a dm. the high ac guy, you know? players hate that guy. & the guy meant to escape? players hate him to, but you expect that. you don't expect them to be so resourceful & to get hung up on it. we spent how many hours on that fucking guy? he'd all shift into a rat, try to scurry & hide, we'd look for him, he'd get cornered, tumble out, lather, rinse, repeat, he'd shift into a rat...& you know, i've been there. so yeah, i got to be part of that! also, just for the official record, mike & kelly's house is fucking murder on my allergies. i'm congested in the lungs for the next day after every time. i theorize that it is a cross between the size of it (big! basement!) & that the dust is mostly human & cat dander. i mean, mike's place isn't dirty by any stretch of the imagination, but i think that there is just enough space for dustmites to thrive & accumulate. all theories, of course. i might just have secretly developed cat allergies or something. stupid histamines! work better!

    The fog of insomnia makings putting your thoughts in order hard. Makes it effort. So I've been sort of absent & silent here, I know. At least I've…
