Dreams of Fatherhood
Oh well, looks like my dreams of fatherhood might be over - for another reason - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4078895.stm. First it was mobile phones in my trouser pockets trying to give me testicular cancer, now it's overheating gonads.

Still...

Yesterday reminded me why I dislike travel - I spent most of the days meeting so tired I wasn't even able enough to rabble rouse, then go exposed to "nasty grotty kids" on the train out of Maidstone (the kind you want to fall under the train with the recoil from their spitting on other kids) and finally huge numbers of young-lahdees getting on at Birmingham International from the Clothes Show Live. Yeurch. I never want to be a teenage girl.

Then it was off to the investigatory team, cutting their way through the mystery surrouding the Chinese Take-away business. One of us got to cut up dead bodies, one got to interrogate a young girl with a mysterious fear of corners and one got to go through the bins at the back of a restuarant. Guess which one was me....

Anyhow - day on the road today so I'd best stop procrastinating shortly. Considering Dresden Dolls this evening but will probably stay in and work; but am confirmed to do Dark Xmas on Sunday in the Big Smoke - anyone else going?

Current Mood: sleepy sleepy

Its OK - someone just needs to invent special insulating underpants!!! They could start selling them in PC World alongside all the other computer accessories :D

made of tinfoil?

lol definitely! but somehow made to seem comfortable and appealing through clever marketing tactics!

Being a teenage girl is fine as long as you spend most of your time doing things that don't involve other teenagers, such as building treehouses and learning to make high explosives. A large collection of music also helps.

Not going to the Clothes Show Live then giggling with your girlfriends then?

I thought you didn't want kids anyway?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: December 9th, 2004 04:37 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't. Luckily it seems.

Well, I don't want kids now; I don't think I'm likely to change my mind; and if I do I think I'd adopt rather than attempt biological reproduction.

Were you the young girl with the mysterious fear of corners?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: December 9th, 2004 04:38 am (UTC) (Link)
Nah, my investigator got to do the bin-diving. Only I didn't. But writing too much about ones table-top adventures can be a little dull.

What system are you playing?

Can you not guess?
From: ikkleblacktruck Date: December 9th, 2004 05:10 am (UTC) (Link)
All I can think of is Cthulhu or Vampire, neither of which I've ever played. Somehow I suspect not d20 Modern. Not a big fan of modern day settings, I prefer my fantasies far, far away in time and space :)

Although I suppose it could be argued that d20 Stargate is a modern setting and I like that. Mark's running a linked-episode all day game Dec 27th, in fact. Too far for you?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: December 9th, 2004 05:58 am (UTC) (Link)
Too far - but thanks for the thought. And you were right first time - Cthulhu modern day/Delta Green with a smattering of other stuff apparently.

i recall reading somewhere that bear skin underpants were once used as a contraceptive as the heat lowers male fertility...

when investigating the Bins of somewhere icky, it's always good to have tough gloves with disposable gloves over the top and some Vicks to rub on your top lip...

...and finally huge numbers of young-lahdees getting on at Birmingham International from the Clothes Show Live.

Oh, you got that too? I was surrounded by a good half-dozen, who screeched and giggled - often simultaneously - all the way to New Street. I swear the hearing in my left ear is impaired today.

Not pleasant.
