Sick at Nero
I have decided there is something worse than Finals: being sick at Nero. This weekend was War of Ages, a sub-campaign with a high death count, and I spent most of it freezing my ass off with a runny nose and a migrane. I ended up going home at Midnight on Saturday. A hot shower and a warm bed and a warm James and I was mostly better.

WoA looks like a really cool game. My team, the mechnons (humanoid robots) were a pain in he butt to fight bacause they're al the old-school Nero players. heck, for an NPC, I was one of the best and some of the newer Staff thought I was a kick-butt fighter. I'm only a middling stick-jock, but compared to the barely competent folks at WoA, I wasn't bad.

But I did feel like I'd been playing Nero forever. And Brian turning 18 made me feel old, despite only being 22.

Work
Life centers around work, have you noticed that? I'm working two jobs and going to school. Yuk. Mondays and Wednesdays I have class, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays I work for Daz. For $8 an hour. Which sux. I also tutor my friend Sarah for $15 an hour, when she needs me and neither one of us is too fried. Which seems to be two to three nights a week.

Today we worked on her new Block Assignment. Being at the Waldorf School, she gets to study all sorts of neat things and compile booklets on them. I helped her figgure out how long things would take to draw, and which buildings to pick. She also prefers simplistic Roman Architecture to Cathedrals, yay! Sooo much easier to draw and analyze.

And there was Arisia. And it was a good Arisia.
Howdy folks, I'm back on LiveJournal! Haven't posted in forever, but that's ok.

This weekend was Arisia, the biggest Sci-Fi convention in Boston. There's also Boskone, but it is a tame, boring convention and generally sux.

I managed to have fun, despite many goof-ups and mis-haps. It started on Thursday, when we discovered that the hotel was Sold Out. Not a problem, my boss, Daz, always gets two rooms, one for his extra crap so he can hold parties. But since I helped pack, he didn't have all that extra stuff, so he could let James and I share the room with some friends from NY. So we had a room.

But, Jon, a techie computer fix-it person, tried to work on Friday. Bad idea, Jon. I had to call several times to convince him to stop trying to fix the FUBAR machine and get his butt on the road. He finally left...at 5:00. On a holiday weekend. In the midst of Rush Hour. Nicole also had to work, and was comming in from Upstate New York. They both arrived at 9:30 and 10:00.

We got to the con at midnight, just in time to miss registration. I forgot to pre-reg, so we unpacked and trolled. This is when James, Nicole and Jon discovered the principle of Everyone Knows Anakin. No, really. Amost 25% of the people know me by name, because I am The Fan Girl Named Anakin. I forget most of them, but that's ok.

Saturday was odd. I got up, got food, went to register, and we had a Fire Alarm. By the time it was all calmed down, Reg had closed, I was seperated from my friends, and I had to go to the Nero booth for How to Play the Game newbie intro. There, my friend Brian put scar masking liquid on over my undead make-up. It still hasn't come off as I write this. Thank you, Brian!

Sarah showed up when the Nero stuff was mostly done. She had gone to a movie the night before, gotten home after midnight, and was a total space cadet. Plus, she showed up looking like a preppie. No one goes to a con looking like a preppie!! Aaaahhh! I made her change. And then had to heard her around. -I- was not that clueless at 18!

The Masquerade was cool. Sarah went home. I bought a wooden hammer that -I- can swing YAY! James, Jon and Nicole went off to a Bondage party, but I was falling asleep. So I ended up shooing the shit with Matt, Chris and Kelly until 3:00 in the morning. And hitting on Pinky. Who is far too cute. But always has far too many girls hanging around for me to feel comfortable propositioning him. Aaaarrrggghhh!

Today was mostly devoted to James last-minute shopping. I now have three pairs of earrings - yay! We did the Sunday Sundae, and pigged out on ice cream. And gave my LJ name to some folks, but forgot to write down theirs. Please post, if you ran into me at the con!

That's about it. I had fun, saw lots of people I han't seen in a year. And I handed out a ton of cards to people who liked my chain mail.

The Sorting Hat
For some reason, it can't decide weather to put me in Griffendor or Slitherin. No, I'm not trying to Be Like Harry, I'm just naturally this way!

Gryffindor!
Gryffindor! Fun-loving and ballsy down to the last
detail, you follow rules when it's convenient
for you and never turn down an opportunity to
par-tay. You're loud, mischievous, and a little
naive at times, but never let your awesome
self-confidence waver. Like Slytherin, you too
appreciate the finer things in life...just in a
very...different way.

Fun With Staff Positions
Back in January, Ed Kenny who runs Nero Necro needed a Weapon Safety Marshall to check our boffer swords. I said, “I’m not officially trained, but I can check weapons if you need me to,” and he said, “Great, you’re our Marshal. By the way, you do realize you’re Staff now, right?”

My response was, “I’m what? Oh well, I always wanted to help run a chapter.” So I give Ed my connect info – and find out that we live in the same town – and he says he’ll call me. I send him a list of Things He Needs to Buy, as well as a cost-breakdown for weapon materials. He replies with “We’re saving for the In-Game Gold pieces.”

I didn’t hear from him for several months, until I run into him on the bus. We talked, he promises to call, which he doesn’t. I run into him at a Boston event, and he’s going on about all the stuff his plot team is putting together. No offers to include me or keep me posted. I was getting a little annoyed.

So when the NeroBoston staff team sends me an invite to join their game and actually get to come to staff meetings and contribute to a real Nero chapter, I’m ready to drop Ed like a hot brick. I guarantee he’ll whine and bitch and claim he had me first. Tough cookies, Ed, I want to help a real game.

A Very Blah Tuesday
It is Tuesday, named for Tir, the Norse god of warriors and combat. Prehaps it should have been named for a god of laziness and slumber? Everyone here at the auction is feeling exhasuted. Maby it's the phase of the moon. Or aliens are slowly sapping all of Earth's human enegry.

Auction Day
Today is Monday, Auction Day here at work. We had a double auction this week because last Monday was a holiday. Which meant that we had a double-auction today. It was exhasuting – there were tons of people here, and a good number of them hadn’t sent in their Lisence Renewals, and couldn’t get into the auction until Terry cleared them. Poor Terry – she’s decided I’m a Loud Person, like Judi our boss, and spent the whole morning having one or both of us yell for her.

Lora, Judi says she wants to kill you for not being here, it was insane.

One of my Poems
Hush now my darling, don’t fear the night
You’re safe in my arms, snuggled so tight
I will protect you ‘till dawn’s clear light;
I’ll keep you safe while you’re dreaming.

Don’t fear the wind, as it howls and it blows;
Don’t worry over water, while swiftly it flows
And don’t fear the night; how quickly it goes!
I’ll keep you safe while you’re dreaming.

Don’t fear the wolf; he but howls at the moon
And that scratching outside is just a raccoon.
I’ll be here ‘till dawn, yea, even ‘till noon;
I’ll keep you safe while you’re dreaming.

Those distant cries – they’re only night birds;
So calm your fears about the noises you heard.
Hush, go to sleep now, don’t say a word;
I’ll keep you safe while you’re dreaming.

Take comfort, my love, for you’re not alone
I’ll protect you from the evil you’ve known.
Come, snuggle beside me, I’ll quite your moans
I’ll keep you safe while you’re dreaming.

Come to me; I’ll dry all your tears.
I’ll cuddle you close, quiet your fears.
No one will hurt you, as long as I’m near;
I’ll keep you safe while you’re dreaming.

Nero Weekend
Nero was fun, if rainy. Played the Guildmistress for most of the time. Realized that I am turning into a copy if Joe Siegal -- during one event, I have:

Fought Sword-Board
Used a kite tape weapon
Run off to take care of a problem while abandoning my bodyguards
And Pontificated at somebody in an attempt to make them feel insignificant.

The weekend went well, until after the game ended. We left the site, noticed the battery light was on, and mentioned it to everyone at dinner. Not a half-hour after dinner, we're driving along, and the car's CD player went out. We pulled over as the battery was dying, and got really lucky that Joe and Lora were behind us. Car got towed, and we moved the essentials to Lora's car...forgetting that my glasses and contact case was still in Tanye's box. So I had to sleep in them agian last night. And this morning, I woke up to find I'd caught Joe's cold. The alternator's at fault; it's getting fixed tomorow.

Weekend Preview
Going to Nero this weekend. It's going to be 50 degrees the whole time, and rainy. Wheee! Good thing I've got a permanant NPC role at Volta -- and as a Sarr Guildmistress, I have the perfect excuse to advoid getting soaked.

Weekend goals:
1. Not to Resurect.
2. Make sure Dave/Coretalless doesn't res.
3. Get re-invested in the Healer's Guild Circle.
4. Establish myself as a competent Guildmistress.

I think that's enough for right now.

Rocky -- Post for Lora #2
I broke Danny today. Oops. Found out that she's never seen Rocky. We must fix this sometime. :) Judi wants to show her the tape, but I think dumping her into the full experence would be more fun. If you come around 4:00, let's try making her blush the color of her hair again.

Going to see the Matrix Reloaded tonight. That's about the only thing keeping me going through the boredom that is verifing every file has its papers in correct numerical order.

Got to meet droa last night. She seemed very nice, although quiet. But that was alltight, because Lora and I talked enough for three people.

So now I'm at work. And I'm bored. And I need to go pick up fabric tonight for a figdit-project at gaming tomorrow. But I'm not sure if I'm getting paid tomorrow. I sure hope so; I really need the money.

I need to find a copy of Rouge Warrior again; Todd says that it has lots of information about small-unit tactics. Which I need to have learned yesterday, because our GM is the only one with a concrete knolegde of stragety. So we get dead on a regular basis.

Aaargh, I really am the good twin!!
Go read lnitefall's journal if this makes no sense. We've decided we must have been sisters or twins in a past life, but she wanted to be the evil twin. And hr entire family agreed, so I must be the good one.
