It's been a while since a proper entry, and I haven't really got the energy to give you one right now. Here, then, is the quick, impressionist version of the past few weeks:

The job search continues with many good leads and no definite offers, yet. Hope springs eternal. Patience does not.

All my current games continue to be great fun. In local gaming news, I may soon have the opportunity to play in a game of HeroQuest, a sort of highly flexible mythic fantasy with incredibly well-researched and fully-realized cultures and religions. I'm looking forwards to it.

My jobs are incredible. Aside from a brief incident where being offset by the wedding-spawned long weekend caused me to MISS A CLASS (insert self-flagellative grumbling), I feel I've been doing a good job. The experience is a positive one for the kids, and for myself. Also, I am being offered another teaching position, bringing my number of classes up to three per week and my weekly income from Jewish education jobs to about two hundred dollars.

The rest of the income has yet to materialize. See the first bit.

I have begun watching Serenity. This is... a good show. I like it immensely. That's all I can really say right now, but more will be forthcoming once I've watched more of the show and, well, slept.

And finally, I went to my first Renaissance Faire with Abby today. She was stunning in a blue-bodice and a purplish skirt. I was... nondescript in my front-tie shirt, black pants, and sandals. I may make assembling a proper Ren Faire garb a project, once I've got the money for it. I had a fun time. Abby acquired a cloak, we both bought matching love-knot coin necklaces, and much strange food was consumed by all. Again, if the mood strikes me, I might write a little more about the experience later. Also, If you really want to know, you could check Abby's journal. She writes about these things sometimes, too.

This entry ended up being longer than I thought it would be, which is just fine. The promised proper entry, complete with organization, will show up at some as-yet-determined point.

INteresting thing about HeroQuest...it seems like that is based on a game I played as a kid (also called HeroQuest) where everyone played stock characters, and the DMish person had very simple adventures to run them through.

The board game? Nonononono. Entirely unrelated. :)

This Heroquest is the descendent of RuneQuest, one of the old granddaddy fantasy RPGs, which predated your HeroQuest by some years. RuneQuest was actually the first version of Chaosium's BRP system, which went on to be used in such well-known games as Pendragon and Call of Cthulhu.

OH, ok. It looked similar the one time I looked at it. My mistake.

I completely understand the job search. HANG IN THERE. You can do it. It'll come along when you least expect it, honest.
