Random Thoughts #98

It’s the day after the Turkey Feast, normal schedules are all messed up, and my brain is bouncing around like a super ball. These are random thoughts.

  1. 8-Bit Christmas is an an interesting nostalgia trip. It’s weakest points were where it tried to mimic A Christmas Story too close, but the third act is fun and the ending is very good.
  2. Monday night’s D&D session was a lot of fun. And we left-off mid-fight because we spent a half-hour following around a cat…so now I have “ideas.”
  3. I have heard the repeated claim “turkey is overrated.” This statement is wrong.
  4. So, are the Eagle’s now mediocre instead of terrible?
  5. My wife and I are looking forward to our annual cheesy Christmas romance movie-fest. Netflix even has a new addition to their shared cheesy romance universe, so that’s a highlight.
  6. There are times when I wish I could feel energized by being around people. Then I come to my senses.
  7. A friend sent me a cool wooden plaque he created. Emblazoned on it is a 20 sided die showing a “1 1.”
  8. While I miss being a player character in some ways, running a TTRPG table is a lot of fun because you are almost always involved 2.
  9. Coffee 3.
  10. People who refuse to clean up after their dogs should have their dogs taken away 4.

  1. Which is what I roll for initiative any time I’m playing a character. This is not an exaggeration. My last campaign my dexterity modifier was “-1” and my initiative ended up being “0” on more than one occasion. 

  2. Except for this past Monday when the characters had a 40 minute conversation with our “guest star” which left me as a spectator. Easiest session ever. 

  3. ’nuff said. 

  4. Specifically, those who don’t clean up after their dogs when they’re on other people’s property.
