July 23rd, 2004



I had meant to get up early this morning, after going to bed early last night, but I was overcome by Sloth and fell back asleep after the alarm went off for the second time. Melody woke me up at 0750, and after minor delays for feeding & watering the cat (and ourselves) we got downtown an hour later.

At this point I am so short I can walk under a pair of Air Jordans and not bump my head - four days and a wakeup, and I'll have my five years in with the Evil Banking Neighbor. I am so tired of this job and its attendant petty hassles that I'm strongly tempted to just give notice on August 2 and have done with it, but rationality tells me I should really take the time to -at the very least - stop by Accountemps and have them reactivate my file. They won't care that I'm working on my master's degree, and I'll probably get enough of a raise (in hourly wage terms) to make up for the loss of my Wells benefits. Who knows? Accountemps might well credit me for all the hours I worked on their behalf before Wells hired me, which would bring me a few nice fringe benefits. I guess we'll see.

I dunno, I think this quiz ought to give extra credit for some of the older systems. I don't see how phoenixalpha possibly rates higher on systems knowledge than I do...good gravy, man, I have rulebooks that are older than she is. And there's no way she rates a 95% on GM experience. Life (and web tests) just ain't fair.

It makes me think, though. I have immense quantities of modules and rulebooks for RPG systems I never GM'ed in, and some for systems I never even played in. (Bushido. Big Eyes Small Mouth. Twilight 2000.) Wonder if I'll ever have the time to do that again?
