I am FED UP of reading.
Wow. I never thought I'd say that, but really, when the past three days have been filled with Frankenstein and Sense and Sensibility (even if I have discovered, despite all my determination to the contrary, that I rather like the latter, though not as much as Persuasion) and the next three days promise to be filled with Oliver Twist, my brain just cries out for a little TV, a little harmless internet time. Oh, hey, I'm on the internet right now. I really shouldn't be.
I think I need to read more in general, because I'm sure I used to be able to read faster. I guess it's possible that I used to read books with larger print, and I guess Dickens is far more brain-leak-causing than Harry Potter, but still, I feel I should not be struggling to get through 150 pages in eight hours. Maybe the fact that the majority of the books are boring and I keep getting distracted is not a great help. I envy my RP character's work ethic. That is quite sad.
Ooh, ooh, and speaking of RP characters, things are proceding apace for the big tabletop game next year, which I am unreasonably excited about for something that is almost six months away. I have been making up my character and obsessively scouring supplements for PrCs and feats and spells, and trying to get her backstory and personality settled, and changing her backstory and personality when I realised she was a HORRIBLE clone of Elizabeth Haydon's Rhapsody, one of the worst canon-sues ever written, and then changing my choice of PrC, and then--
Well, you get the picture. I am so desperate to distract myself from Oliver Twist that I started reading the Book of Exalted Cheese earlier, although that didn't last long before I wanted to gouge my eyes out with a spork. My paladin for this term will just have to live without exalted feats, which I guess is probably just as well, since some of them are rather overpowered and he is already a horrible munchkin.
See, our game (one of them, the other is playtesting for next year's house rules, and I have discovered that I LOVE playing drawfs) is Council of Wyrms, which is a second edition campaign adapted by our DM (who remembers first edition) for 3.5. All the PCs are dragons of varying colours in a world where the normal alignments are scrapped in favour of being pro-dragon and anti-human where the humans have practically wiped the dragons off the map, though the old alignments show themselves in some racial prejudices which make for very entertaining roleplay. --Anyway, I ramble somewhat. I'm playing gold which, as you can imagine, makes me considerably overpowered compared to the green and the little brass, and even though the campaign is designed so that the relative power levels don't actually matter too much, did I ever feel guilty when I looked at all the comparitive stats.
Hmm. Can I ramble any more? I think it's relatively clear by now that I'm just procrastinating. I should go and read some more.
I didn't see Kiishie. :(
