I had a wonderful time at Barfleet Summer Games this past weekend. There was, unfortunately, an inordinate amount of rain. This put a damper on both our usual camping arrangement, and our usual circles around the bonfire. However, this led to us all camping much closer together and getting to know each other a lot better. Our socialization was confined to smaller spaces, and so it made for more of a fleet feel, instead of individual ships/bases. This was also bolstered by the two planned group meals, and the two unplanned group meals held in the Pavilion. It was a great time, with 133 ย of my fellow fleet campers.

In work news, Summer Reading Club starts this Saturday. As does a lot of the kids’ summer breaks. It’s going to be a fun summer. We have a lot of afternoon activities set up for them, and the prizes for SRC are pretty nice for adults and kids.

I finished The Expanse, and then started into Red Seas Under Red Skies by Lynch. However, my next library book became available, so I put that on pause, and started into The Greyfriar by Clay Griffith, read by James Marsters. It’s my first steampunk novel, but I’m not far enough into it yet to know what I think. Speaking of, I watched the 2011 The Three Musketeers last night, it was awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tired But Well October 6, 2011

I’m getting more used to working two jobs again, but it’s still quite tiring, what with everything else still going full steam. But the files are now all in order, though 21 of the boxes don’t have homes yet. And that number is just Not going to work out well.ย  I have about one box of unfiled papers still needing put in the right folders. And then that project is done. They’ve asked me to stay four more weeks, with the suggestion that the library could use my help ( right now it’s a bunch of boxes of books and some empty fixtures). So we’ll see how that goes.

It’s October, the holiday season is upon us. I am once again pondering the effort and expense of a Halloween costume. I have hardly bothered since becoming an adult. (Yeah, laugh all you want ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Don’t know that it’s going to change this year either. The holiday displays are going up in the store and next month, holiday hours start piling up. I don’t know what this IS going to mean for my schedule, but it Could be good things. It will mean the insanity of another retail Christmas. The school doesn’t seem interested in hiring me permanently, so no escape valve, yet.

Health is doing alright. It’d be doing better if I was more conscious of taking care of myself. I’m trying to be, but everything is so busy. Got fresh fruits and veggies yesterday. Eating more salad as I rush between jobs. My jobs are very physical, but actual exercise would be good for me. Remembering to take the meds I asked for every day would probably be good for me, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ All in all, though, I’m doing well.

Just got my copy of The Legacy of Heroes this week. Is pretty. Our BSG-based game with it is going along well. We are actually able to kill some of the suits now. (Toaster being anachronistic in a fantasy world, but suits of armor seems a fitting alternative.) And we’ve gotten our call to the oracle, so that’s up soon. Somehow my monk is still alive. And soon, she might even be effective, thanks to our GM’s gift. Fun stuff.
