More or less anyway. Nice warm days, no need for a coat, chirping birds in the trees.

I seem to be celebrating by catching a cold; at least my throat has that telltale scratchiness. Fortunately I have the ability to make rather-good-if-I-say-so healthgiving sausage and potato soup, and can spend the evening curled up under my duvet watching Game of Thrones.

Life otherwise is fine; more layoffs at work, but none in my team. The job continues to generally not suck. It sounds like our local D&D group has enough people (11 if everyone turns up at once including the new guys!) that we might end up running two games, and I've volunteered to run a Dark Heresy game. I enjoyed running a Rogue Trader campaign a few years back, but was never quite sure how to make the setting work properly (if you own a giant spaceship and have like 10,000 crew, why would you ever put yourself at personal risk?). Dark Heresy is a step down in power level and especially if it's a secondary drop-in game for when we have too many people for the main game, I can make it pretty lethal if I wish. I've always kind of wanted to run something a bit more doom-y.

I'm pondering what to do with my holidays now I have a) European amounts of holiday and b) Europe right next door to go visit for less than the $1000+ it costs from Detroit. Might make a weekend trip to Paris with a friend or something in a few months. Or I'd love to see Rome. Might also make a trip to the coast; even though I moved away from the shore when I was 7, I've always missed the sea.

I seem to be cooking American food more now since I left the place. I've done fried chicken and chicken fried steak a couple of times, and am attempting to track down pimentos so I can do pimento cheese. I've even contemplated biscuits and gravy. I just found where Waitrose stash their buttermilk which should assist my leftpondian endeavours.

I've been thinking about and wondering how you've been. Seems like things are going rather well for you! That makes me happy! Carry on!

Glad to hear no Dickens-like tragedies have befallen you. I'm working my way through David Brin's Uplift series for background on a GURPs Campaign I have planned, player recruitment is the next step.

My tech-priest was one of my favorite characters. In my own imagination his foot tall cylons took over the ship and he's unleashing a machine revolt against the Imperium.
