SATURDAY will be a day full of winning.

FROM 8AM TILL 10AM there is a free Pancake-n-Sausage breakfast at mcLendon Hardware down the street, which is fortuitous since Crystal needs to get some more pretty bricks to line that one section of her garden with.

Comic Book Ink in Tacoma opens at 10am. I could totally justify making a trip all the way down there and back, right?

The Comic Stop in Lynnwood doesn't open till 11am on Free Comic Book Day because they are human. So even if Comic Book Ink doesn't give me ALL the comics i want, I can always head to The Comic Stop to fill in the holes right?

Then I head back home for a night of Dungeons & Dragons & FUN.


The only part of my plan that I'm not so sure about is the trip to Tacoma. Comic Book Ink is a kind of attainable mini-dream that I can continue to strive towards, and it's kind of a waste of gas just to get some free comics and posters that could be easily acquired not more than 10 minutes from my house. But Dammit, The Comic Stop has NOTHING SPECIAL GOING ON!!! Just "Come in, get comics, leave". No sales, no creator signings, no people in costume... it almost seems like they're treating it as a nuisance instead of an excellent opportunity to have an event at their store.

So plan #2 would be...

McLendon's for Pancake-N-Sausage-N-Bricks.

Over to The Comic Book Store in KENMORE that always has a "All back issues $1" sale on Free Comic Book Day.

Over to Toys R Us for the "Star Trek Figures 2 for $10" sale (which i will be able to justify because I didn't spend all the gas money on a trip to Tacoma).

Garage Sales till 11am.

Comic Stop at 11am, home by Noon.

Yeah, that sounds about right...

I was correct in assuming that my Anus would be angry at me this morning*.

Also, my head and my tummy are still very angry over the whole "Let's just give it a taste shall we" incident last night.

Soon i will have a house full of kids here; I hope that Butt, Belly & Bean can get together and work things out in an amicable cease-fire for the remainder of the day so I don't accidentally tear a child in two.

Also need to finalize all my plans for Saturday and post a final notice for The Mystic Order of The Sacred Slinky...

* (That should totally be the first line of every blog post EVER.)

BTW, if you can read this that means you're invited. Just drop me a line!

Having heard from all parties except for [ profile] bjorker's crew and [ profile] aquatwo, it seems that everybody is all about Game Day/Night at our place! We also may be joined by [ profile] baeleth, that will depend on how Amanda feels after work.

This week for snacking I will be offering a delightful assortment of fresh fruits and veggies, awesome brownies (legit ones), hard boiled eggs, potato salad and of course as always, ALL THE DELICIOUS KING COUNTY TAP WATER YOU CAN DRINK!!!

There's actually a few carbonated beverages left over from last time if anybody wants some, and we might get some heap-butt beer because [ profile] khristal can use it to kill slugs if nobody drinks it.

We have a Birthday Party to go to earlier in the day, so feel free to come over any time after 3pm. Gaming will go till we are done.

At the very least we will be playing the vintage and very legendary "MythAdventures" board game, based on the MythAdventures series of books written by Robert Aspirin. Directly after that we will play an original D&D Adventure I like to call "Lost", and then if there is time left over we'll play something else TBD. And of course, it will be your opportunity to witness IN PERSON the miracle of the Wil Wheaton Blessed Dice!

This is technically the FOURTH meeting of The Mystic Order of The Sacred Slinky, and we've only ever gotten to play actual Dungeons & Dragons *once*. Let's hope that this time we make it to some actual dice-hucking and monster slaying!

Hey all you folks that game with us at our house on the second Saturday of every month! I need y'all to chime in on this!

This coming Saturday (April 11th) would be our next gaming session. HOWEVER! i can understand if we might want to postpone it for several reasons, not the least of which are:
  • The next day is Easter Sunday
  • That weekend is the weekend of NorWesCon.
I am VERY open to the possibility of gaming on Saturday as we have MANY new games to try out as well as a slick, brand-new COMMERCIAL D&D ADVENTURE to try and get through. At the very least I know that [ profile] teegin is up for gaming because he bought The MythAdventures Board Game at ECCC this weekend... anybody else interested in coming?
