Oy, the weekend.

Although Saturday allowed a bit of rest, in the evening we went out to the Valley to see a stage production of The Mouse that Roared. I read at least two, and probably more of the novels related to this, including the epynomous one while I was in high school. It was good to see the show, especially as one of the cast members of Dungeonmaster, as well as two of the regular attendees were in the production.

Sunday started with work, then brunch at my youngest sister's house to celebrate Mother's Day with my own Mom along with various other mothers. It was pleasant, but we had to bail somewhat early to go to Dungeonmaster, since the planned dinner would take some time to cook.

As to the latter show, it was the season's final episode. We had two opening acts, Micah the Magician, as well as Drunkards and Dragons. The show itself was pretty tough; tough enough that they planned to have me (as my character "Mycroft", who has special healing powers) out in a very early scene as the party was wiped out. Still, some of them actually made it all the way through, so it was a lot of fun. The final scene was utterly classic, and I loved the choices made by several of the player characters. What a way to finish the run!

And now, a week ahead; loads of work to do already. *Sigh*...

If you liked the "Mouse" books, you might give Homeward to Ithaka, by the same author (Leonard Wibberley), a try: it's a one-off, shortish book (no longer than 225 pps., if memory serves) that starts out as yet another "middle-aged, white male academic feels a midlife crisis coming on" story, but quickly goes off into left field when he's plunked into the body of Odysseus (please don't ask me, at this remove, for the Gaelic rendering of his name...), washed up in Ireland at the time of the events described in The Cattle Raid of Cooley, wherein he meets Cú Chulainn.

Sex! Violence! Carousing! Scheming! Double-dealing! Dangerous athletic events! Irish mythology! Mid-life crisis? What mid-life crisis?!

Good stuff.
