Feeling Happy
A year and about one week ago, I kicked out a toxic player from one of my games, and it was the last toxic player that game has seen since. I don't know how they do it, but I got to say I love my players to death for being so amazing!

Feeling Very Happy
After 16 months, one of my games has just crossed 20,000 posts. I don't even know what to say about that. That's simply a ludicrous number. I kinda feel like I should make a Ric Flair-esque "WOOOOO" at this point in celebration.

They Made It!
The very last of my teenager's friend group (AKA: my spare children) graduate tonight!

I'm so tickled to see them all grow up and get to where they can spread their wings and head away from their small-town nest.

Resident Evil:  Vendetta
Saw RE: Vendetta on the big screen last night.  It was very good.  The action sequences were awesome.  And what made them even better is that the heroes and zombies were mo-capped.  Their "action team" worked through all the stunts.

Pretty cool.  Reminded me of the ballet gun battles of John Woo movies.

Resident Evil:  Vendetta
Just got back from the store where an absolutely gorgeous full double rainbow was brilliant against the deep gray clouds.

And everywhere I turned, people were coming out of stores, cars, and homes to stop and gawk at it and take pictures.  It was a beautiful sight all around.

Good stuff!
That wonderful moment when one of your PC's comes to you and spills her pet conspiracy theory about one of the antagonists, and you just smile, nod, and realize it's -awesome-, so therefore... It's now pretty much true!

My tabletop GM just greenlit the most ridiculous Mutants and Masterminds character I have ever conceived of.

I'm going to need to color code sheets and it is going to be so ridiculously awesome.

My jerk of a cat and my overly friendly dog. Not sure if they love me because they have to or not, but I am glad I have them with me now.

Not sure how much worse I would be without them.

I've done this. I agree; it is wonderful.

Re: Good stuff!
Choosing to look at the bright side of this...outside contractors are coming back to the park where I work, to tweak some settings and adjust a few things that we put in earlier this year...they specifically asked for me to be available to help them.  It's nice to have a reputation for being a solid choice to have around (the dark side of it is, I'm basically on graveyard shift for three nights because that's the only time we can work on the ride...)

Re: Good stuff!
Finally got to see Fantastic Beasts and where to find them. Made me remember the fun bits of the HP games I played here and still wish were running. Then I get sad. But it was a good sad.

Re: Good stuff!
Got to looking through some old records about some of the old games I used to play here a few years ago, and stumbling right onto my account name and password so I can get back on.

I'm currently trying to choke my printer getting as much of this stuff as I can into paper form before one of my favorite games is forever deleted.

It turns out I missed playing Rain and Alicia so, so much... among others.

In reply to Wyrm (msg # 741):

That day - sounds awesome!  Three vehicles?!  You're ambitious! I finally got my Grey Knight Paladins completed.  Took 'em out for a spin, (small game - 900 points 'cause that's all I had) - totally annihilated the Salamander Player.

Re: Good stuff!
I haven't run a game in over 30 years, but I've been thinking about it, refamiliarizing myself with my world, and working out a couple starting adventures. When the opening came up in my tabletop group, I offered to run for a while... and we rolled up characters today. I'm excited, but it's also nerve-wracking, worrying about all the stuff I need to remember and keep track of!

Regardless, next week, my world comes back to life again. :)

Re: Good stuff!
Horseback riding...I used to be able to go at least a couple of times a week, for a few hours each time.  Those days have, sadly, long since passed...but I still like to ride.  And I still seem to be good at it.  I was on one of my friend's 'tricky' horses...the ones that seem really well-behaved until they think they can get away with something with you.  Over an hour on her back tonight, and nothing more extreme than her shying away from some critter in the bushes.

I miss this...

Re: Good stuff!
My cat, who wasn't eating, has started again!  He's not quite eating with the same vigor, and because he's seemed to develop an aversion to nearly everything we already owned (due to him being nauseated for unknown reasons for 4 days), but at least he's eating!  And he seems to be more vocal, more perky, and acting much more normal.  So yay!

Re: Good stuff!
That wonderful moment when one of your players sends you the mock-up art for the PCs' school jackets, and says she wants to order actual ones for the players. As a GM? Blown. Away.

Re: Good stuff!
Here's to being prepared...

One of our performers choked on her lunch yesterday, upstairs in the dressing rooms, while the rest of us were down on the stage, talking.  She started beating her hand on the stair rail to get someone's attention...and someone noticed, and yelled, "She's choking!"

It's been thirty years and change since I was taught the Heimlich maneuver (First Aid training in the Boy Scouts), and in all that time, I've never needed to use it...never even seen it used, except as a gag bit in comedy movies.  But I remembered it well enough that I went into auto-pilot the moment I realized nobody else was moving.  And it worked, and someone is still alive because I paid attention in Boy Scouts a LONG time ago.

I don't share this because I find myself heroic.  I share it because it's really easy to tell ourselves, "I'll never need to know that," or, "Someone else will know what to do if that's ever needed."  But sometimes, YOU are that 'someone else'.  We can't be prepared for everything...but there are a lot of situations we can be prepared for.  Learn what you can.  It's not just an advertising cliche when they say you migyt save someone's life.

Re: Good stuff!
I like to say that when someone's life is on the line, it'll be saved or lost based on knowledge and skills that go unused in day-to-day life.

Therefore, unless you roll 15+ (to put it in gaming terms :), choosing to know nothing beyond day-to-day stuff will be a death sentance for someone. The fewer people with those life saving skills, the more higher you need to roll.

Re: Good stuff!
My brother, now two years cancer-free. They say if he hits three, he's completely out of the woods. I'm so damn happy I could cry!

And me... Eating healthier. Finding fruits and vegetables I really like. Smaller portions. I mean, granted, I'm on day four of this, and the cravings for pizza are strong, but man... I never thought I'd like good-for-me food! It's kinda awesome!

Re: Good stuff!
Went to my company's Christmas party dressed as an elf. Santa and Mrs. Claus visited us for cookies and milk and took photos with the children. My supervisor asked a few of us to dress up as elves and help with the kiddos. Santa came with his own troupe of elves, but we got to help out anyway. It went well and we've been invited to Elf School on Friday. After that, we'll do a few parties and the town parade this weekend. So excited!
