Games games games [Apr. 30th, 2004|01:08 am]
Head hurts - but for a rather good reason. I didn't have caffeine today at all.

However, I am tired. Today was quite full with Jen Con starting and renting a car and a doctor's appointment and Jeff-stuff.

I played 2 games: one that Mike ("Scary") ran and one that Laura ran. Mike's was a whacky Mortals WoD. The winner of the game ended up by a 3-way rock-paper-scissors challenge cause we couldn't decide who was the evilest mortal.

Laura is a GM that I hadn't played under before & was running a system I'd not played. Her blurb sounded interesting though and I like trying new things. Not certain if I played the autistic daughter correctly as I'm not that familiar with autism besides what I've read. Sometimes I think I played it a bit too young & naive, other times I acted a bit older.

Had fun in both games. Looking forward to more tomarrow.

Also picked up dice and Ascension from the vendor. For some reason, I'm missing my dice. I had Jeff's bag today since he didn't sign up for any games (I noticed he's snagged some of my dice and had them in there *grr-lol*). Think I'll have to pick up more dice tomarrow.

play [Apr. 29th, 2004|01:06 am]
[mood |bouncybouncy]

And so its after midnight! Jen Con! *bounces around*

uh... that'd be "a convention" for the people at work *giggles*

Got a car rented for tomarrow. This way Jeff can get to work & I can go play. ...and run around CR for doctor's appointment in the morning - but I can sign up & play games in the afternoon!

Made some food that I had extras of tonight so they're going to Jeff's department tomarrow/today. Hope Breakthrough likes them. We did. Its rather good with red wine, but I suppose Breakthrough won't be having that as well.

Read some of the postings that made me want to call people to talk to them, but I left my phonebook at home and at work right now. Sorry - I'll catch you at Cornell tomarrow.

Will need to find dice & I bought some other nummy food from Hy-vee so I won't have to go Ratt tomarrow (maybe I'll just get a Frappacino or something...).

Haven't run a game for the Con in years. Its just sort of nice to play in them - see what C&G has to offer each year. Have been helping a couple of the GMs come up with character, play-test, etc. Hope they do well!

work [Apr. 29th, 2004|12:25 am]
Ever have one of those days where you feel so unappreciated or unnoticed?

At work there were several salesmen (yes, I'm being gender specific since they're all men) that couldn't find stuff we'd sent out in January, March & early April.

I keep the records that the sales send us. I also update pages for the customers & mail them out with a little professional letter on a weekly basis. These pages and letters are always always photocopied and sent to sales & we keep one as well. This makes for an awful lot of paper that we store in files. While we do organize it, organizing is a lower priority than getting the stuff out to the customer. (I don't think I've alphabetized since last October... As soon as I get caught up, I swear I'll do it.)

So I spent the majority of the day finding little pieces of paper in our files that sales should have had a copy of in the first place, just to prove to sales that we had sent copies of the letters to the customers a long time ago.

I had been trying to get caught up with everything so that I wouldn't feel that guilty for taking the next 2 days off for Jen Con. Unfortunately, since sales couldn't find their copies (and sales doesn't have to keep track of as much paper as my department does since each salesman has about an eighth of the customers), I wasted about 3 hours hunting for various papers.

As I'm the youngest (by 25 years or so) I am also left out of the conversations that go on in my department & most other departments. Everyone has dogs & grown (or almost grown) children. Some of them even have grandchildren *sighs* Grown-ups! oh... wait, I guess to a lot of you reading, I'm the "grown-up" *sighs* I've been avoiding the lunchroom to work on Larp stuff or read a book - more enriching subject material (and I can avoid the Harpy).

Anyway, as I'm left out of a lot of the conversations, they tend to forget that I'm there. I kept reminding them that they'd have to take over some of my duties while I'm away. ...one of them made some sort of a joke that they place my stuff on the lowest priority so they won't do it. *sighs*

They think I daydream (which I do cause its really really boring at the job) and they think I am not as smart/experienced as they are - no respect for me cause I just don't belong there & am young & don't like to talk about the same things they do. While I can do the job, the job has me running at half brain capacity. Makes me seem really stupid. So they give me the more brain-dead things to do. ...watch me power down.

As I was waiting for Jeff to pick me up from work, I noticed the supervisor was about ready to leave. Made a half-hearted attempt at conversation to say "good night." She told me she'd see me tomarrow... So the supervisor forgot I was going to be gone til Monday?!? (I reminded her yet again.) I feel really really unappreciated & unnoticed down there.

I'm glad I went to the career fair. Found out that Kirkwood wouldn't cost that much to switch careers.

Larp event [Apr. 26th, 2004|11:38 pm]
[mood |artisticartistic]

So... I'm thinking next Tuesday (not tomarrow/today), but the 1st one in March, for a players' meeting. Does this work for people?

A lot of my players read the LJ instead of belonging to the egroup - unfortunate, that. I am creating a LJ account called treacherous_met for the game since more people are on LJ than anywhere else atm.

Life and love [Apr. 26th, 2004|11:03 pm]
[mood |pensivepensive]

Found a couple more xanga usernames tonight. Sort of disappointing that the people I thought had it together, do not.

But what do I know, right? I guess I shouldn't be that surprised.

No matter what they're good people & friends that I like to be with, despite difficult times. ...I just thought they were having better times than they are - no wonder why they're tired of listening to me and my life. They got their own worries.

Of course, I keep hearing that Jeff and I are the couple that they keep looking up to and are disappointed in the current situation. I know that people want us to stay, but some changes need to be made especially since there's a problem. And we are working on it. I just wish people would stop looking at us for answers and as an example of "a perfect relationship" - cause its not it. Least not right now.

I'm not trying to hide it, its just that its so... tiring to keep rehashing too. And yet, things can't go back to the way they were either. Cause I don't want that - and I think Jeff doesn't want it either. I don't know how I want people to treat or think of either of us. I don't want to divide people - which is what the "auto-response" does. And my response just confuses people even more, because I don't know what I want to do. Because of my response - which despite how much I try to rationalize in my brain, ends up coming down to my heart and emotions - I know I shouldn't deal with a few situations at least not yet.

Anyway, I also care about friends who are going through their own tough times. I just don't know what is needed.

Congratulations and thank you!

Parental phonecall [Apr. 25th, 2004|07:12 pm]
Parents seem to be doing well. Maternal grandparents not so well. Grandpa was laid off this week. His company was sold out to China.

Grandpa's 78 and almost completely deaf, though he does possess a sharp mind for engineering. Still, not a lot of places that will hire him. Grandma's already retired from nursing. From what I know, they need the $ still.

I hope they survive and I wish I could help.
