My first ever attempt at vocals on Rock Band last night and I got 100% on "Bring Me To Life" -- whee. :)

ETA: I apparently failed to mention that I rocked the house.

Also, the rest of the band was fabulous, with special props to Holly the Drummin' Queen.

Dear locals:

There is apparently a new gaming and comic shop in Bellevue that just opened a couple of weeks ago, and they are hosting a Free RPG Day on this coming Saturday. I haven't been there, just learned about it this morning, but if anyone's curious, the name is Dragon's Lair and they're located in the shopping center at 20th and 148th, right by the IHOP there. Looks like they do miniatures and L5R nights as well as Magic and other stuff.

Hi I'd like GCL to be local and weekly please and thank you sigh.

(This lament brought to you by a round of "Let me tell you about my favorite RP characters ever.")

I'd settle for a good MET larp, or even a REALLY good tabletop old-WoD game.

I escaped from the Dungeon of Faecat!

I killed Intenselee the goblin, Evelynne the zombie, Missysedai the rat, Fyrgod the leprechaun and Madgenius the leprechaun.

I looted the Shield of Azorielios, the Dagger of Yarn, the Dagger of Helens78, a Figurine of Daddygod, the Armour of Yarn, the Wand of 2-17-05, the Wand of Gaming, a Figurine of Deshad, a Figurine of Lycantras, the Crown of Rhiannonstone, the Crown of Laragoth, the Axe of Walking, the Shield of Moose, the Crown of Knitmeapony, the Crown of Holegrot and 111 gold pieces.

Score: 561

3-Day: Training is going spectacularly. On the fundraising front, my little thermometer is currently sitting at $1715 of $2200. The fundraising link is on the sidebar of my journal page, and I'll repost it the first Monday of each month (why, that would be today!). I did a 6.25-mile walk this weekend, with no breaks longer than waiting for a traffic light to change so I could cross the street, and had no problems with it. :)

Crafting: I ripped the summer Eris back, except for the cable yoke - I wasn't liking the way it was working out. I'll try again later, but I've got some other stuff I need to get done first. While I wait for my Knitpicks order, I started working on my Flirty Ruffles shawl again. Also, last night I put longer straps on one of my bags, and it's pretty darned near perfect for what I had in mind.

Exercise: Walking, dance, need to get my bike down.

Family: I go to visit my grandma in a couple weeks, and it turns out that she and her whatever-he-is-these-days are going to be coming through Seattle at the end of June for a cruise to Alaska, at the same time that Dan's family is coming into town for a visit. Joyce and Jeff are coming in mid-June, and I'm going to visit Jill at the end of May as well.

Gaming: Kedria's L30 now. Other than that, not much.

New Years' Goal: 9 out of the last 10 weeks have been 100%. I've lost 15 pounds roughly since I started this whole schtick - 5-10 more to go.

Reading: I'm reading a couple of books right now that I....totally can't remember the names or authors of. *facepalm*

School: Doing well. Everything's on track. :)

Watching: I watched Robin Hood: Men in Tights and What A Girl Wants the other night. I've been lax on my movie-watching, because I've been a bit lax on the knitting.

Wedding: We have a full wedding party now, and less than a year til the wedding. Dan vetoed my wedding cupcakes idea. Time to start rolling on the planning. :)

Work: Pretty light. We're in my downtime half of the year, but I've got some non-urgent stuff I've been working on.

3-Day: Training is going spectacularly. On the fundraising front, my little thermometer is currently sitting at $1715 of $2200. The fundraising link is on the sidebar of my journal page, and I'll repost it the first Monday of each month. I've found several good paths in my neighborhood for training walks: one 3-mile loop, one 4-mile loop, and one 4.5 mile loop. Annoyingly, I'm getting into a part that involves 5-mile walks. :P Oh well - six works just as well, or I can fake it :)

Crafting: I've got the summer Eris still on needles (need to finish the hem cabling and the sleeves), plus three more projects I need to order the yarn for. I've been toying with ideas to make an organizer pouch for a bag, and also a summer dress or two.

Exercise: I started a new belly-dance session last night - it's a shorter session though due to the holidays at the end of May. It's nice enough that I'm going to start riding my bicycle for my cross-training, I think.

Family: Dan and I loved our trip to Vegas. I'm going to visit my grandmother in a couple of weeks, and Joyce and Jeff are coming to visit in June. Yay!

Gaming: Nephari waived her DNR order and let Orithoc resurrect her after being slain by a Death Slaad, after the boys pointed out that without Nephari, they can't go on through the dungeon, since she's the only melee character. I do, however, intend to start putting together my moose druid character. Karrec has the first 3 pieces of her Dungeon 2 set and is working on getting the next 3. Kedria hit L29 and is well on her way to 30.

New Years' Goal: I ended my streak of 100% by forgetting to eat fruit or veggies on one day, but then started up another one the very next week.

Reading: I've been chowing through books on the e-reader. I read a series of four trashy romance novels while we were coming to and from Vegas, and I've been reading the first book in the Abhorsen series (I forget if that's the actual name of it, but whatever) by Garth Nix.

School: So far, I'm on schedule. Though I need to work the vocab-only classes into the schedule too, they've fallen by the wayside so far as they don't have any in-class-required components.

Watching: Armageddon. That's........yeah, that's about it. And I re-watched Rent the other night. Ari and I are going to watch some B5 tonight :D

Work: Pretty light. We're in my downtime half of the year, but I've got some non-urgent stuff I've been working on.

Dear Seattle:

STOP RAINING. I wanted to walk outside today, but I don't want to do so in the cold and rain. So I'm just going to have to drag my N64 into the other room and hook it up to my little TV so I can play Harvest Moon while I walk. Huff puff.

Speaking of which: Yay Jillie! New icon :)

I picked up Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories this afternoon. It's alright so far, though the card thing is throwing me off a bit. Figured I'd check out this game series that has people so excited :)
