Events of note in the recent past..
Ok, first up. I am currently -without- a working laptop, which makes this whole itnernet thing a bit more haphazard than I like.

Anyway, now I shall add some recent events.

On the 3rd I had my interview with the Teachers College. I'm still undecided on whether i did alright at it or not. 3 person panel (1 Uni employee, 2 principals) vs 4 applicants group interview. We had a rotating question system, I had to answer the first question of the interview, and I completely bollocksed it up. But I think the rest of the interview went alright. One of my co-interviewees said that he thought I did well, but was maybe a bit too honest. We'll see. Officially they're supposed to get back to me sometime in the next week and a half.

Anyway. Other than that, life has been progressing. I guess I'm still a bit of a mess on some levels, but being in Chch is fun. Seeing people is good for me.

Uhm, yeah, rambly. My next interview is coming up on Friday.

Oh yeah, Flyswat incident. John, frustrated with being repeatedly landed on by a particular fly while playing Halo swatted it. And in the process apparently smashed some crucial part of my laptop. It's screen makes weird swirly patterns, and even the external output is having colour problems from time to time.

So, uhm, Insurance, yay.

I'm still kicking around ideas for a game to run at Big Gaming Week or Kapcon. Not sure. I've been wondering about Santa Claus for the last 3 days.

The musings on a game to run are probably going to come to naught. I know I could run 3:16 at Kapcon, but I'm not sure that'd actually generate interest for people.

I think it would - its been populat at other cons and in GoD at KapCon.

But if in doubt, you can always float the idea on NZRaG and see if anyone bites?

I suppose taht's true. I guess I feel like I ought to offer things more imaginative than pre-boxed settings.

There's nothing wrong with pre-boxed settings; hell, there's nothign wrong with pre-boxed adventures. I'm running something out of the back of a book...

I guess? I'm skewed, cause they're not what I hunt for when I go to conventions. Also, probably in part because of the number of vastly creative people I hang out with normally.

When thinking about what to run at a con, don't think about what people want to play, think about what you want to run. If you build it, they will come. And if they don't, you can play in that really cool game that's scheduled at the same time!

(I get a full or near full table every time I run 3:16. They are regularly people I have never gamed with, so it's not me!)

So maybe I should jsut voluntear to run 3:16? It was mainly that i know they run it as part of GoD that makes me leary. But I guess someone who really wants to play. Hmm.

There's no reason games can't be on the schedule and in GoD. GoD is a bit of a crap shoot; you know what you're getting on the schedule.

Right, volunteared to run 3:16 for KapCon. I guess I'll keep thinking of things to run for BGW, but I'll also have to spend some time thinking of what worlds I'll run for it.
Y'know, get myself some set pieces thought up, and general ideas for what to do.
