Black Lagoon- Rock


Hellfire is currently not underwater.  Both the playing fields and the allotment next to the west oxford community centre are well and truly sunk, though.  For the time being at least looks unlikely that we'll actually flood.  We are currently climbing over the wall to get in and out of the house, due to the massive stream that has developed on Binsey lane.  Oh well, hope it dries up for the-teflon-monk's graduation on saturday.

36 Hour Comedown

This weekend was a well and truly wonderful game by the_teflon_monkand snowspider.  It involved a lot of ongoing plot with my longest running character finally coming to a head, including very horrible things happening to the two people she cared most about in the world.  Kind of brings me back to a chat I was having with oxfordgirl about how roleplayers and fanficcers always enjoy doing really horrible things to their favourite characters.  Still sort of mulling over where she should go from here but I can't see there being more than one or two games left in her.  Anyway here is a little piece of fic from the weekend that I was mulling over on the bus journey back.

Random Musings

Okay- a post because, hey, I haven't posted in like forever...

Current status of my life is I still do not know whether I shall be in Oxford next year or if I shall be moving to London. The Oxford postgraduate application system mocks me at every turn.

Having finished my Quantum mechanics mini project (looking at the inverse problem of scattering theory, for anyone who cares) I spent most of the past few days procrastinating, this post I fear my be part of that. I ensured to hand the thing directly into the hand of my supervisor, and quite frankly I'm astonished that he hasn't emailed to tell me he's lost it yet (of course that most likely means he's just not going to tell me that he's lost it).

Thursday night saw the completion of Yukikaze with bluegoo- lent curtosy of monarda-if. This proved to be a very touching story of the love triangle between to men and their fighter plane. There were many silly names, such as an alien race called the JAM from the planet Fairy, but very shiny animation.

Saturday was LARP, run by yours truly, in which the theoretical "good guys" went round the city torturing people for information. Including one guy ending up with a scar in a place you really don't want to know about. I do rather love the way in the White City that parties will generally resort to the quickest and most unpleasant means of doing things without a second thought. Was excellent fun, even if most of the handling of the logistics of a terribly complicated plot was down to the-teflon-monk, rather than myself.

Sunday I was in London with my folks attempting to pick out wedding clothes. After approximately three hours of shopping I think I finally picked out something that I liked- and actually fitted to boot. On the plus side I did get a very nice free lunch at Abeno, the Okonomoyaki (sort of best described as a Japanese omelette) restaurant.

Today though I have been productive. In that I walked all the way into college and printed out some past examination papers. Having had both my holepunch and stapler disappear to the place where lost things go I went and bought new ones so that I could file away all this terms work and problem sheets. Maybe tomorrow I will actually do some of them...

It is my birthday this Thursday- thus I shall be celebrating before the Thai on Sunday. I shall be in the Elm Tree on Cowley road from about 7pm onwards.

Edit: That would be the Angel and Greyhound on the grounds of the Elm Tree, having apparently closed down.

Edit: Perhaps I should clarify, since several people have asked me in person that I mean this sunday coming (the 26th) rather than Sunday gone.

Okay so yesterday got me to thinking and I decided I'd try creating my first poll. Now that it emerges that to keep up my record of one PC death per White City Larp game, I will have to kill a PC in two weeks time, I decided I'd ask for general opinion. If you feel particularly strongly you have reasons why a particular PC should or shouldn't doe please comment below. If you feel I should refrain from my killing ways then tick the box other and give your reasons below.

Secondly seen as Maelstrom falls on easter weekend first event next year I'm unlikely to make it. I'm currently debating the relative pros and cons of buying a downtime ticket- currently £15 seems like a lot to spend not to get anything tangible from it.

Poll #865936 Campaign: Part IV

Given my current track record of being known as the "player slayer" GM, I feel it necessary I ask: Which PC should I kill on the last campaign game?

Carlos de Mamushi
Tommy Truebreath
Harriet Pinter
Bairoth (de Mamushi)

Should I buy a downtime ticket for next Maelstrom event (if it emerges that my parents want me to visit for the easter weekend)?



About 15 minutes left to go and I shall be over and done with my summer project. It was an interesting experience, although the mathematics of rowing was not a topic I would have picked for myself. Still have to decide whether I'm going to look into turning it into a 4th year dissertation though.

Anyway, have a week of bone ideleness before the inevitable chaos that is coordinating fresher's week. Joy!

Talk like a pirate day

I don't get it. I mean are we supposed to have national days for everything now. Why is everyone getting excited about it? I mean its not like its national cleavage day. Am I just to cynical to understand these things?
