Everybody’ sick. Except me. And give it time, I imagine. And it’s been like this for far too long. The Boy started it off, maybe. Or not, who knows. But it ran through the kids, the Missus, and a brief bout hit me back in January. Then the Boy came down with ‘a little pneumonia’ as the doctor put it. And then it all came back last week with the Boy throwing up in the middle of the night. And then again the next night, but not as much. It finally ended Sunday, but by then the Beast was puking. And then last night so did the Eldest. And in the middle of the night the Missus.
So I’m sitting here, taking a sick day to try and take care of them all. The Missus is out, finally. Sort of. She has to have some sort of TARDIS stomach to account for the amount of puking she did. I didn’t think it was possible to puke as much as she did and actually have something to puke. But me? I’m honestly feeling fine. So I’m hoping my superhuman immune system is doing its thing.
Or pall of illness. Two of the kids were home from school today. One of the kids from the class I’m subbing in went home early. I’m not feeling super, but I wouldn’t say I’m feeling sick either.
A slightly less bad day on the homework front. I’m really at a loss for what is going on here.
I’ve got some ideas brewing for a great mini-WoD campaign. Actually, I think it might be a good test for some bigger ideas I got, like campaign and even a weekend event LARP. It involves a bit of time travel, sort of. More of a replaying past occurrences, and even a bit of dabbling in past lives. I’m thinking it would be rather fun, if I can pull it off even vaguely right.
I want to run a game for the girls. I think it would be fun, and I think I have one that even the adults would enjoy. Well, a couple of them. A couple of the others (the other boys) will probably be snooty and gamer geekish to a freakish degree. Not enough system, not enough wholesale slaughter of monsters. Fuck ’em.
And since I’m on the subject, I guess a plug for http://taverntalesrpg.com/ isn’t without its place. From a table-top gaming perspective it looks nice. It’s smooth and encourages creativity. It gives you your high fantasy fix without several hundred pages of charts and calculations. Thanks Tavern Tales dude, who ever you are!
