So, where have I been the last few days? Just about everywhere, it seems.
It’s President’s Day weekend, which means I get to spend some time reflecting on the badasses that helped make the United States a world power while enjoying a three-day weekend. With all due respect to Washington, Lincoln, and company, it’s the latter that I enjoyed more, since it gave me a chance to see lots of family, including some awesome folks I haven’t seen in years. I got to see my two older sisters and my four nieces, all in celebration of the fact that I will soon have a third grand-niece (great-niece? what do you call second-generation nieces anyway?). My sisters have barely aged a bit since I saw them last, and my nieces have grown into intelligent, beautiful ladies. I met my youngest niece for the first time and had a ball with her as well, although my habit of overdoing it around kids will one day cause me great pain to my back and knees.
Following my niece’s baby shower, I got to hop up the road a few hours and spend some time with my mom and my brother, who I see more often but still not enough. My family as a whole is all kinds of awesome, and it’s good to be able to see almost all of them in one big weekend.
Returning home, I got to be with a hungry and grateful kitty and got some fuel for future entries in my Rants and Role-Playing Games sections, as my recent purchase at Barnes & Noble finally came in. My new books include Wonder Woman: Eyes of the Gorgon (previously mentioned in my Wonder Woman rant) and Pathfinder Chronicles: Misfit Monsters Redeemed. That means that you can probably expect me to do a “Crowning Moments of Awesome” piece of Wonder Woman sometime in the future, and I might wind up incorporating flumphs or disenchanters in a future Pathfinder update.
So, huzzah! I have endured many hours of traveling, shared much joy with my family, and returned victorious! Normal updates will resume beginning tomorrow.
