Three good things, because I need them.
1. Android: Netrunner, a resurrection of the legendary card game Netrunner, arrived on my doorstep. The best parts?
It comes with 7 preconstructed decks (4 corporation, 3 runner), so you don’t have to worry about deckbuilding out of the box. It’s like receiving 4 starters of the old Netrunner decks.
Deckbuilding itself is simplified by the faction and influence rules, which take after those from Blue Moon.
Better rulebook than the original.
The art is wonderful.
2. The second volume of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon also arrived. The story deviates from the anime quite a bit, with less filler and more getting to important character turning points and action. I think I’m going to order the rest of this series.
3. I took some joy in unraveling my dreams from last night. Not the mystical stuff; more down-to-earth cause and effect: what caused/inspired me to insert this or that aspect into my dreamscape/dream story?
4. Enjoying Film Critic Hulk’s musings on storytelling, which apply to any kind of storytelling, not just film. A lot to think about, particularly the smashing of the three-act structure and the Hero’s Journey.
Thing I like about myself: bleagh. For the nth day in a row.
AJIP (AJ Improvement Program): need to start making bento again. I drained almost the last of my Tao of Tea Peppermint preparing a brew to soothe my stomach after misadventures in the local cafeteria.
Basically this will involve sleeping earlier, so I can wake earlier, so I can leave work earlier, so I can actually cook when I arrive home, and have leftovers for lunch the next day. Tomorrow I think I’ll make some Mabo Tofu (made with Bob’s Red Mill GF TVP soaked in beef broth) on rice. And I’ll make plenty of extra rice so I can have fried rice with shrimp (I have a bunch of little ones frozen) the next day.
