Aside:

Shakespeare’s The Tempest

The Women of Fantasy Bookclub is reading Prospero Lost by L. Jagi Lamplighter in March so Iย decided to read The Tempest in preparation (not that I’m sure it was necessary). I remember why I don’t like most of Shakespeare’s comedies. All the characters are putzes and nobody dies. My exception is Much Ado About Nothing and most loose adaptations of the comedies. While I haven’t seen it in a few years, it’s hard to believe that Forbidden Planet is based on The Tempest. I also have an especial sweet spot for 10 Things I Hate About You and the truest words that have ever been spoken about male-female relationships: Girls are suckers for guys that sacrifice themselves on the altar of dignity.

This and That on a Lazy Sunday

It seemed more appropriate to post my RoW80 update over at the Luck for Hire blog. So, that’s where it is.

Pas de Chat continues on: Chapter 36.

Kind of took the weekend off from Luck. Eric is taking a class in graph theory this semester and has a test on Monday, so lightening the narrative burden from him for a few days is a good thing. I’ve been reading a bunch and DMing a little and generally trying to be good and not re-up my EverQuest2 subscription.

Today, I bake brownies. I would watch the Oscars but our over-air reception of ABC sucks and instead I’ll be following some blog/twitter/whatnot. This year’s bet is based on whether The King’s Speech (my pick) or Inception (Eric’s choice) will win more Oscars.
