My office is still nice, but I need more light in here. I can barely keep my eyes open.narcissme
is back. Yay!
What’s pretty surreal? Well, chatting at a party Monday night with a friendly old gentleman, and gradually realizing that he is, among many other things, the author of the Limited Test Ban Treaty, one of Kennedy's National Security Advisors, and also the father in Girl, Interrupted
. That was pretty surreal.
What’s even more surreal? That we didn’t talk about any of those things (not that I would have brought up Girl, Interrupted
). Instead, we talked all about my own goofy little research deal, because he's read my proposal and knows all about it. That’s surreal.
’s solicitation for a new game
. All the game ideas sound cool, but I need a spot on the survey where I can check “Two new campaigns in two weeks? You're freaking me out!” I gotta get out ahead of you, Mike, and sign up some players for my next game before you sew up all the days of the week. That or find you a job.John Mack is dead
, alas, and not of natural causes. The MIBs are getting sloppy. I should post my John Mack story, even though I know many of you have heard it.
Not news, but: Russ Meyer is dead, too. I was mostly shocked to learn that he was still alive. I mean, until he wasn’t.
We played the new Paranoia
on Saturday. Lots of fun. Bryant asked me to write up the session for 20x20
, which I hope to do. Speaking of gaming, the Burning of Chicago session of Unknown USA
was one year ago this week.
Our next-door neighbor’s house caught on fire. A big fire, too. Nobody was hurt but a cat is AWOL and the downstairs apartment was pretty much gutted.
