A Quiet Saturday Night

Spent a relatively restful, uneventful evening last night after supper.

I had recorded the Friday night episode of Queen of Swords off CHCH to check whether the PVR worked and what sort of learning curve I would have with that. No difficulty, at all. PVR recording is much sharper than VCR recording, isn't it? <g> I was a bit surprised to find that it wasn't an HD series, but I guess that's to be expected given how old the show is. :)

After watching the episode, I did a bit of reading. I've been stuck on one of the books I'm reading for most of the month, and am really struggling with it for some reason. While I am enjoying the book itself, I find myself slogging through parts of it. Mind you, the speed at which I read books has slowed down tremendously the last few years, possibly due to my age and a few other factors that aren't relevant to this post.

Before going downstairs to bed, I did a bit of work on the Primeval RPG stuff for the next couple of weeks. Pre-planning and all that, as they say.

Then went to bed, and read a bit of this month's issue of Locus magazine. (It always comes later in the month, so I try not to fall too far behind in my reading of the magazine and seeing what books might interest me. No wonder my reading queue is so...large.)

Getting Ready for Sunday Gaming

Just about to hop into the shower, before I get ready for some lunch and then running this afternoon's game with the Sunday group.

They'll be continuing their Primeval RPG campaign this afternoon, which I'm rather looking forward to.

Gaming on Sundays with just Tammy and spross is always an interesting, at times frustrating and/or annoying, afternoon, as the two of them just don't work together in play. There are various reasons for this, of course, which I'm not going to go into here (as I've discussed them in this blog several times in the past), but suffice it to say I always find Sunday afternoon gaming to be something of a challenge.

Anyway, time to clean off the daily layer of dirt.

Sunday Game Session, and TV Tonight

Sunday's gaming session is done for the day, and I have to say that I had a pretty good time.

The two players, spross and Tammy, had a pretty good time of it, I think, and the game session of Primeval RPG went pretty well. The player and their characters were engrossed in the action they were involved with. Nothing more to add to this, you'll just have to wait and see the blog entries on the games in question. :)

In the meantime, I'm preparing to go upstairs and make some supper, and then plan to settle in with some Unforgettable and the latest episode of Broadchurch.
