You and I are exactly the same height.

As far as weight goes, I've been bouncing between 215 and 230 lbs. for the past 6 or 7 years. May seem like quite a bit, but I've got a broad frame, so people always think I weigh 30-40 lbs. less than I do.

Same on both counts for me. Not quite as lucky on the frame thing, unless I wear a coat or jacket, which I'm told make me look less heavyset.

So last night Scint and I ran a bunch of people in NWN through a demented funhouse demiplane run by a pair of slaadi disguised as halfling jesters (based heavily on Zorn and Thorn from Final Fantasy IX).

Highlights of the night included:

* The Funhouse Mirrors of Opposition, where everyone's duplicate popped out looking either like a Gnome or a Half-Orc (the entire group was Humans and Elves)
* The ball pit filled with Will-o-Wisps and the Ball Pit Fiend (whose cheerful "Wheeeeeeeee!" got the hilarious response of "I hate that you're so @(#*&^%ing happy!" from one of the PCs)
* The dancing tent
* "You're grounded from talking."
* The pop-up monsters in the castle that looked like familiar server boss monsters but had all their stats set to 3, and spilled confetti every time they were destroyed
* The Hall of Clowns (which prompted "KILL THEM ALL" from the Assassin, who was also the only one who failed a save to their fear aura)
* And the Barbed-Wire Maypole Wheel with its cold-iron tines (also more clowns)

OOCly the group was laughing their heads off about as much as Scint and I were. ICly at least one of them has declared a full-on hatred for the word 'Fun'.

I have an entire region of my homebrew world used as a massive chessboard by dragons. Even outside this region, there's a fair few of them who are prominent in their respective locations.

I've never been a huge fan of "dragons are super rare".

I blame Cosmo that one of the two sister cats both wants and doesn't want attention. She makes a beeline to me, with her tail and body posture indicating she is in a good mood and happy to see me... she rubs against my legs and makes her usual attention meows... and then when I pet her, she often slouches her back away from my touch, like she has a broken back. Yet she still persists in trying to get petted and will suddenly decide she does like it, arching her back up toward my hand... and then changes her mind again a few seconds later and slouch back down. She purrs the entire time. The vet couldn't find anything physically wrong with her on the last two visits, and she acts eager for petting around people she sees infrequently. If I refuse to pet her, she continues to circle and rub for a minute or two, then stands on her hind legs and stretches her front paws up my jean legs reaching for attention.

What the hell, Cosmo?!

Um, how many cats have you had?

Cause, almost all of mine have done that...

Yeah, other past cats have done the same thing or similarly fickle cat-slaadi interactions. I keep forgetting that cats are basically like 2-yro human children, except they're fuzzier, better coordinated, and have natural weapons.

I blame Cosmo for the toxoplasmosis making me forgetful.

Yep, both of my cats are like this.

One does the whole rub legs/meow for attention/try to climb legs if I don't pay attention to her, then pitches a fit if I pick her up or try to pet her for too long, going into full ragecat buzzsaw mode. She likes belly rubs though, for reasons I can't fathom.

The other will jump into my lap on occasion, but only when she wants to, and if I attempt to pet her, pick her up, or otherwise interact with her without her taking the initiative, she runs away.

I blame Cosmo for indecisive animals being so loveable anyway.

Yeah I admittedly sympathize, every time I consider writing something other than a small encounter or flavor text (like I've done for Raging Swan) I always run into "no, can't do that, that's one of our houserules" and "no, can't use that, that's 3rd-party stuff". I've pretty much given up on doing anything of that sort.

The more I hear people raging about how the movies are unlike the books, the more I find myself happy I didn't read them due to being unable to stand Tolkien's writing. Other than the love triangle thing (yeah I'm more than sick of those) I've enjoyed the whole series immensely.

Still need to see Hobbit 3 admittedly, but I'm greatly looking forward to it when I finally get around to it.

Well, if any writing content is welcome, I suppose I should link this here. I'm back to trying to keep my worldbuilding blog updating, fleshing out the lore of the world and its races right now, moving on to countries, religions, and other things to follow. No real schedule, just updates when I feel like writing something and get around to posting it. =)

Yeah I liked it a lot too. Was kind of surprised to see so much hostility to it in some of the reviews.

That said I liked the two books everybody else seemed not to like and didn't care for Queen of Thorns as much while most people seemed to think that's his best one ever, but that's mostly because I don't like Calistra or Golarion's elf culture very much.

Finished with Thursday Next, at least until Dark Reading Matter comes out (date as of yet unannounced...).

Currently reading through Queen of Roses by Elizabeth McCoy.

However, restarting Kim Harrison's Hollows has been delayed by discovering that Richard Roberts has put out a second book - Please Don't Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon, sequel to Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm A Supervillain. Loved the first immensely so eagerly anticipating the sequel.

Oh I'm quite aware I'm asexual, a friend of mine explained that bit to me a few years back. Though the thoughts are appreciated. =)

That said, I'll admit that I am quite a bit prudish, and easily irritated by the over-abundance of sexual everything in society that seems to be, the more I see and learn, only growing as time passes. I grew up in a very reserved upbringing, and even now at nearly 30 the culture clash continues in a lot of ways.

The mindset of the majority of my own culture baffles me, but I can at least understand the stigma that's placed on this sort of thing, even if it, as I said in my earlier post, doesn't seem to have much recognizable effect. Things still happen, but there's a recognizable bit of "this should be kept out of sight, out of mind" that I can follow, even if what happens "out of sight" is something I'd rather not dwell on. It's something I appreciate because with all the stuff I'm constantly being bombarded with any time I step out of a closed-off room (including getting online or even just turning on the TV), I still know there's a line that will not be crossed unless I go deliberately looking to cross it. The worst I'll have to deal with, more often than not, is listening to people boasting about their bedroom conquests or crudely propositioning others, and nine times out of ten I can simply walk away when those subjects come up.

The fact that there are societies that lack that stigma, have erased that line, is even more bizarre and quite a bit disconcerting to me.

What a boring life you must lead.

I know this was meant in jest, but I'm actually very happy with how boring my life is. I get enough excitement for my life out of writing, reading, and gaming. All of which (usually) allow me to choose how little "unwanted content" I have to experience.

I discovered in my mid-twenties that I wasn't interested in sex, sexual relationships, marriage and/or children, and it severely de-complicated a lot of my life compared to prior.

Now I'm just sick and tired of seeing and hearing about it everywhere, being shoved in my face all the time by advertisements and just general media attention of all kinds, and consider the whole thing highly overrated. And that's just in the US, whereas nearly everybody from everywhere else in the world keeps telling me we're too prudish and repressed. Severely kills my desire to do any travel elsewhere, unless I were to take some extreme measures to avoid interacting with the majority of local people. (That and my overwhelming phobia of plane flights. I can barely handle the 3-4 hour ride from Tennessee to Arizona or vice versa. I couldn't ever handle overseas flight. And boats are more expensive.)
