The Cult of Lincoln

Friday:
  1. Friday was gaming night with Shecky and Sue! I've never actually played an RPG in person, so it was quite interesting. Man, my first Faire and my first RP experience within a week of each other! *slops mortar over the gaps in my geek cred*

  2. The gaming itself fulfills slots two through five. Great banter, great fun, and great Mr. Burns impressions when we plotted evil against each other. :D

Saturday:
  1. This was an EXTRAORDINARY day! I started the day right with a feast of scrambled eggs and bacon, cooked by Sue. I spent the morning chilling with them and being tolerated by their cats, who were gracious enough to allow me to give them back scratches.

  2. I scurried back to New York to meet Kait and her friends in Central Park, where she was celebrating her birthday with a cupcake picnic. Mmmmmm, sugar coma. Kait's friends are pretty much universally awesome, and it was great to get to meet them.

  3. I had to leave the party early to go to ANOTHER party, the Comic News Insider 200th Episode Bash! I hung out with all sorts of great folks, and I got to chat with Lost's Michael Emerson and dreamboat of the comic book world John Cassaday.

    The live recording was lots of fun. Listen here to the episode, which includes a musical number, a radio drama, Michael Emerson reading memorable movie quotes in his Ben Linus voice, and a smattering of my incisive puns, catcalled from the sidelines.

    Afterward, co-host Joe bowled all of us over with free tickets to Wednesday's production of Cirque du Soleil's new show, Kooza! I can't wait to go! Also, friend Lisa invited me to hang out with her friends Sunday and play a crazy fun card game involving killer bunnies. She's currently training for the Avon breast cancer walk, so we're going to walk the 5 miles to her friend's apartment together. Good thing...

  4. ...I went shoe shopping! I bought three pair to jazz up my feet for the summer. The store was doing a Buy One, Get the Second Half-Off sale, but the two more expensive models weren't part of the sale. However, the manager randomly came over and started chatting with me as I was trying on one of them--she loves to see young people wearing shoes that are actually good for their feet--and she gave me the discount anyway. A ten minute conversation saved me fifty bucks! I win!

  5. I also ran by the grocery store for more almond milk, and I squeed in joy to see that peaches and apricots are now in season! I can make my favourite pie!

  6. And as a bonus, as I took the easy way out yesterday: Today's xkcd. Oh my god, the more I laugh at this, the more I feel like a hopeless nerd! Heck, the fact I can relate to it should be enough to consign me to endless mockery.
