Hmmm....Not much has happened since the last entry. I cunning managed to get myself onboard a Tuder Pirates 4 roleplaying marathon so thats pretty much all I've done all weekend. Rather stupidly I had pizza on Friday, which meant that when we had it on Saturday (pizza is typical marathon food) I felt very much the fat bloater.

The marathon went well, everyone had fun, my character didn't die. We even had a victorious ending, despite the rest of the party's blunder that got us all captured.

Today, I have no idea what I'm doing yet. I think the plan shall involve shopping. Definitely lots of shopping. Not that I feel particularly in the need for a bit of retail therapy, but it can't hurt can it?

Tonight I'd imagine will the be now customary no-GameSoc monday pub trip. It'll seem wierd when term starts and we're back the to the futile attempts to have a gaming evening which is always overrun by various roleplaying campaigns. I think cryx's attitude of just not bothering to turn up might be the right one, except of course she's now a part of one of the campaigns that is causing the problem.

Maybe this year will be different and the emphasis will be less tabletop roleplaying, so that we can bring in new members. minute I'm discussing my plans for today and the next I'm ranting about how GameSoc is too biased towards roleplaying.

Yuck! I forgot the one flaw about going shopping and that was the stinking crusty folk returning from the Reading festival. As I got on the train, my senses were assaulted with the stench of death and decay. Luckily I was only going one stop, so I didn't have to suffer too long.

Other than that - the shopping trip went well. I managed to get a third set of bed linen, but failed to get a new wallet. I also got that "Take me home" song on CD on a whim.

On arriving home I find I've got 2 phone messages telling me about an improptu picnic. Unfortunately the messages are an over an hour old, but I phone ahead anyway and it turns out people are still there and unlikely to leave any time soon. In fact people stayed for an extra 4 hours and much fun frolically in the sun was had by all.

Now the plan is to go to the pub. I'm not especially hungry, so I'm not that fussed to turn up any time soon. But I suspect that I'll be hungry later by which stage it'll be too late.
