The joys of being the father of an almost-three year old:

You're playing music that you created yourself, and your son comes up to you, puts his hand against your mouth and tells you: "shhh."

May Activity Check! [May 27, 2018 * 8:20pm]


It's time for an Activity Check!

The requirements, as outlined in the Rules/FAQ, are fairly simple. All you need is 1 log or narrative per character with no minimum word or paragraph count. That's it! If you are still working on a log with a partner and the deadline comes up, feel free to link to an in progress doc or post what you have as a placeholder and use that toward your activity.

This check will run through May 31, 2018.

Let us know if you have any questions! ♥

Today is yet another one of the holiest days of the year -- Geek Pride Day! I'm decked out in my most geekiest of wear that also won't leave me melting thanks to a combo of food truck and up there temps.

Speaking of food truck, you know that our specials are on point today. On top of our normal Stella's approved menu, we're bringing you:

Seheron Fish Sandwich from Dragon Age: Inquisition -- garlic and dill salmon, seasoned just right and served on a large roll; comes with a side of homemade chips or garden salad
Hasperat from Star Trek -- avocado, pickled veg, spinach, red onions, and cream cheese all wrapped up into a large tortilla with sriracha on the side; comes with a side of homemade chips or garden salad
Poutine On the Ritz Burger from Bob's Burgers -- bacon cheeseburger that comes with a side of poutine fries
Rabbit Adventurer's Ragout -- chicken stew packed with carrots, potatoes, and veg, served with side of bread)

Sansa's Lemoncakes from Game of Thrones
Portal Cake from Portal -- Black Forest cake that may or may not be a lie
Toriel's Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie from Undertale
So come visit me! We'll be in downtown for lunch, Dunhaven Park for the afternoon, and I'll be giving 15% off your order if you're wearing something delightfully geeky.

Hey guys! Just a quick update from me. I'm sorry for completely disappearing. I got really sick, then as soon as I was back on my feet again, I was preparing to leave my job. And then this week I've been dealing with all the super exhausting training at my NEW job.

I'm definitely going to be better about keeping up around here, but I'll still be slowish for the the next 12 weeks while I'm in training at my new job. Thanks for being patient with me! <3

If you saw a fairy walking around downtown today, do not fear. It was just my daughter, wearing a costume for the third day in a row. Cut for image! )

Luckily I've been able to wrangle it from her room in the night for washing or we'd be in trouble. She's cute, though, so I'll let it slide.

I feel like death and the only part that's making me angry is the fact that I can't stop sleeping and dreaming.

While I was leaving work today, my sister told me that because I "actually use that network thing" she needed me to "make a blog or whatever it's called" for her. I asked if this meant I'm the social media manager of the restaurant now and she said "sure, if it helps you sleep at night" and then "no, before you ask it, it's not a paid position". Hopefully she never actually starts using the network or the resulting sigh when she sees this will be heard back in NYC.

One thing that I miss most from NYC are board game cafes. The Uncommons is where I spent way too much of my time before I moved. So that's exactly what we're going to try to recreate here in Dunhaven. On June 9th, Stella's will be hosting an all day board game event from noon until 10PM. It's the games from RotD and the food from the kitchens of Stella's, with a themed and basically awesome drink, app, and meal menu, if I do say so myself. You can come and hang out as long as you want, so long as you're having fun while doing it.

So, put it on your calendars, friends. It'll be good. This has been a couple months of coordination (and convincing/begging) in the making, so I can't wait.

Mikhail, this is my girlfriend, Margaret. Margaret, this is Mikhail.

At the risk of sounding really crazy and driving you off, Mikhail, I'm going to fess up to something here. The reason I called you Bucky is because I saw you in these dreams I had and that's what I called you. I'm introducing you to Margaret because I've seen a woman who looks just like her, too, and I can't shake this feeling that it means something and I can't shake how much I want you both to know each other. Is this weird? It's weird. I'm sorry.
