Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

So, yesterday, we had several people over for Rolemaster, and it was pandemonium. The party managed to facilitate the creation of a lich, which will add loads of complications for them for game years to come, I'm certain. Also, one of them has attracted the attention of The Fates due to sibling murder. Fun, fun, fun.

forestcats took brushette to an agility trial, and they came home with a ribbon, which was, I think, a brilliant capper to the year's activities. I'm so proud of them both. Each of their journals covered the fun, so look there for more.

Tonight, wires got crossed. We'll be attending a party in Echo Park, due to the attendance of several friends of mine from college, who I haven't partied with in a long time, rather than down in Corona. We just didn't connect in time to find out the arrangements. *Sigh* :-(

Back we go, later today, to the Agility Trial, to see if brushette can make one, or even two more legs...

Sliding just one more book under the wire for 2006, I finished Gene Wolfe's latest novel Soldier of Sidon, a sequel to Soldier of the Mist, and Soldier of Arete. It's a little difficult to read, though worthwhile, as the protagonist is a warrior who's memory leaves him daily, and the book is written as a series of notes he writes to himself to try not to forget things. This one details his trip down the Nile...
