Wasting Time, Lesson One

I spend quite a bit of my internet time (and mental activity, so it seems) reading, posting, and thinking about roleplaying games. They’ve always been one of my favorite hobbies. For posterity, I suppose, and in the interests of posting something to this weblog, I thought I’d showcase the extent of my madness.

Here are some search results that display just how much time I spend on RPG.net, my net hideout of choice (871 posts so far!).

Some of my favorites:

So.. yeah. I like roleplaying games. I currently own ~400 of them, with a retail (not resale, sadly) value approaching $9,000. But at least it keeps me happy and keeps my mind active, I guess.

*sniff* *sniff* just rub it in…my measly 6 RPG books are sitting on my shelf gathering dust and scornful looks.

Hehe… rub it in you say? How about this: I’m in a weekly roleplaying group that hasn’t missed a week since… *looks in emails* …the beginning of March. 😀

Matter of fact, we just had a good session tonight– though it was bittersweet. One of our players graduated in the Spring, and is moving to San Diego, so it was his last session.

…this is one of the reasons that we’ll be recruiting new players in late September.

Since I haven’t talked aught else with you– how’s life been, Mallorn?

No fair! Weekly sessions??!!

Life’s been pretty good. A few little dramas, nothing very exciting. I’m going to DC over Labor Day though — pretty excited about that 😛 How bout you, other than your excessive amounts of enviable role-playing?

And yes, I did receive your call and have been meaning to call you back but….yea, I’m lazy. You’ll get a random phone call from me someday!
