So, I skipped the Thursday game as Matt really, really
wanted to see Transformers. And wow. That movie rocked. I never really watched much of the cartoon, but the movie was really fun and engaging.
Friday's game went really well, even though I was mostly an observer. We convinced Matt to run a Werewolf the Apocalypse game. Fun, fun! kalar
are both entirely new to Werewolf, so Matt ran them through their first change and the experience of discovering a whole new world. He did the set up really well and it was really fun watching them role-play their characters discoveries as they themselves discovered the game. I think this time we really picked character concepts that will blend well together. Of course, it doesn't hurt that out of six of us, four are Fianna. Heh. Anyway, we've got:
Homid Child of Gaia Ahron = Bob
Lupus Fianna Ahroun = Paul
Homid Fianna Galliard = Dave
Homid Fianna Philodox = me
Homid Uktena Theurge = Austin
Homid Fianna Ragabash = Shana
My concept for this game is an old one for me, one I've been wanting to play for quite some time. I remember the "breakthrough" feeling I had when I conceived it. I'm really excited about this game!
Saturday I went to the Star Wars Exhibit
at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. It was awesome, and I totally enjoyed myself. My family is so cool! Ok, we're actually quite nerdy, but I
think they're a lot of fun, so it's all good anyway. First we watched the special effects movie at the Omni (I so want to see Harry Potter there too!), then went through the exhibit.
The exhibit itself was really neat. They had a lot of what-ifs and look-where-where-science-is-now kind of stuff that was really interesting, plus a lot of little activities, like building your own miniature robot, steering a robot, sitting in an air-propulsion type car thing... All kinds of neat stuff! I could have spent more time there, but teh Lex was so tired poor thing. Then when we broke for lunch, I sat too long and was ready to head home myself. Of course, I think had I gotten a full night's rest (instead of going to bed at 3am and getting up at 7:30am...), I would have had a lot more energy for the exhibit. Maybe I should go back, and be rested this time...
After the exhibit, we went home and took a "nap" and threw off our sleep schedule. Luckily Sundays are very low energy so we were able to balance ourselves out by Monday morning.
Only to throw it all off again last night! Because, of course, Matt and I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter with Bob, Chip, and Paul. So here I am again, having gone to sleep around 3:30am and getting up at 7:30am. Whee! I'll just say that if you've read the book you will notice things that were left out (of necessity due to time). If you haven't read the book but seen all the other movies, you'll probably enjoy it quite a bit. Maybe. I
enjoyed it anyway!
Lunch today with Annie, the Lex and Eric was good. I'm still tired, though.
And yet I still adore going to opening midnight showings. It was worth it! ^_^
