getting sucked in

nekonoai on Sep-3-2009

Getting pulled into roleplaying again. This time in a Shadowrun based system. I’ve been trying to think of what kind of character I want to play all week, and it ain’t coming easy. I mean, some ideas come easy, but then there are those ideas that I don’t know are even possible. LIke I had the idea to play a half-breed, but I’m not sure if the DM will even allow this. I also don’t know if any of my technology ideas will even work the way I want them to. Plus, I haven’t even decided on a name yet. Plus, I’m hoping that no one else has decided to play a Hacker or Technomancer type, because it will suck having to scrap and restart.

I got a PDF of the sourcebook from Hunter, and I’ve been reading through it today to get a feel for the world. It kind of reminds me a little bit of Dark Angel, cept with more supernatural type elements. Maybe second season Dark Angel when all the freaks came out. LOL Cept, hopefully less sucky. At any rate, it should be entertaining once I figure out what to do and calm down a bit. Gotta settle into character.

I’ve started saving up to buy a laptop. Yeah, after years of saying WTF do I need that for? I want one. I found a nice one on newegg that should do all I need it to. I should be able to have enough saved up by december, as long as nothing unfortunate happens. *sigh* I swear, if I was the praying type, I’d be on my knees 24-7 these days. I hope things work out favorably for all involved parties.

Anyway, back to the game. I’m kind of torn between wanting to play a human and an elf. I have a feeling the elf will win out, because it’s what Hunter wants me to play. I already know she has an aversion to guns. Knives are ok and she wears a blade shaped like a lightning bolt attached to her belt, looking like an innocent enough accessory.

In other news, I’ve been on a rather harsh emotional rollercoaster this week. I totally blame hormones and the moon. One minute I’m a raving bitch to everyone in the vicinity, and the next I’m like Niagara Falls. Every so often I’ll get what I’ve dubbed the Kanashimi Wave. Just this wave of sadness will crash into me and squeeze at me for a moment, making me feel like crying, and then it lets go. I experienced this yesterday morning while I was walking to the bus stop. It happened for no good reason, but it was harsh. I’m hoping that it lets up over the weekend. If I get crashed into by Kanashimi Wave in front of Hunter, I don’t know how I’ll handle it. *sigh* He’s such a sweet boy. I don’t want him to worry about me. He’s got enough going on right now. Man, what’s with this selflessness? Let’s be real here. You want him to hold you tight while you cry your brains out for no good reason, you silly girl, and you know it!

Sometimes I wonder if I should go back to school for psychology.. and then I think… school? blech. 😛 I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to pay for it. But there ain’t so such thing as a free education.

Weekend Update…

nekonoai on Aug-31-2009

The weekend was awesomely wonderfully awesome, despite me needing severe decompression therapy for a little bit. Don’t really know what was up there. Wanted to sing, but contained myself mostly. I need a better speaker system for my precious. Something portable that doesn’t suck too hard. I should have bought that little boombox bag from Spencer’s. Oh well. Maybe I’ll head over there again sometime and see if they have one. Or else I’ll see if they have something like that at the walmart. I got my other little boombox backpack from there.

Played some Lego Star Wars on Hunter’s PS3, while he played Champions Onine. That game is so fun. Actually made it through the pod race the first time without crashing once. Very strange for me.  Usually I crash all over the place. I’ve become so focused lately in some things, yet unfocused in others. I wonder if I’ve gotten to the point where I can write again.

I really need to get a laptop. I found one that looks kind of nice and will work for what I need it to do. It should be able to handle Sims, and whatever else I throw at it. Gonna save up for awhile. Might take saving for 8 or 9 paychecks before I’ll be able to get it. Unless I get help from mom, but I don’t really want to ask her for money for a laptop. That would be cheesy. Besides, she’d probably flip out if she found out I payed that much for anything. 😛 Nevermind that I’ve actually been shopping around to find the best price for what I need. Oooh, this one actually looks better and is cheaper. I certainly don’t need no 18 inch screen.

In other news, I’ve been invited to join the geeky inner circle. There was a resounding JOIN US from both the Dungeon Master and Hunter. Since they’re starting a brand new game from next week and starting a new system as well. Of course, I’m a little apprehensive. The only game of this type I’ve ever played was the one off of Red Dwarf in which I played a Kryten style mechanoid who ended up with a humorous groinal rotisserie attachment which we caught a polymorph chicken on. While this was a hilarious stroke of brilliance… I’m not sure if I’ll be any good at this.

I kind of enjoy sitting outside the circle, just listening. I find the stories to be very entertaining. Most of the players are quite imaginative and really into their characters. Sometimes they’re downright insane, and I try not to laugh too hard (they’re usually laughing too, no worries) so as not to disrupt their game. Of course, I’m also free to do whatever I want. I generally play my psp or read. This week I was going through games on my supercard using Hunter’s DS, to see which ones I wanted to dump or keep. I have way too many DS games. Most of them are crap, but there are a lot of good ones too.

I’ve asked for materials so I can at least learn about this stuff. Perhaps I’ll think about making a character this week. I know that Hunter really wants me to. He does love playing with me, the silly boy.  I must admit that I do love his mind.

I guess we’ll see if I can get it together to make a character by next weekend.

Fun with groinal rotisseries

nekonoai on Jun-28-2003

Boy, i know i spelled rotisseries wrong. but who cares?

had some fun last night playing teh red dwarf tabletop rpg… i was teh kryten…(at least until i can think of another name for my series 4000 mechanoid).. the highlight of the evening (for me at least) was when I captured a poultrygeist and attached it to a rotisserie that was plugged into my groinal socket. ahhh… the crew looked on as a chicken went round and round sticking out in place of my joy department.

needless to say, i laughed my ass off.
