One knows one's busy if one must upgrade from a To-Do list to a To-Do spreadsheet...
Today I played D&D all day. It was exciting.
I today discovered a powerful application for Excel: calculating XP in D&D.
Tonight we had a delicious potluck to which many awesome friends came. On the RPG front, Jim is starting a Star Wars campaign, John a short term D&D lvl 12, and my long campaign is about to start. Should be good times all around.
We also decided to start a Taboo league, which will keep statistics of everyone's Taboo-playing skills. Individuals will have a lifetime Taboo average of accurate guesses garnered as readers. We will also attempt to keep track of mis-speaks and guesses of other people's clues. A good spreadsheet is in order.
Today I learned that typing ability and connections are a good combo.

1. Grab the nearest book.
D&D Players Handbook v. 3.5
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
"This column tells how long it takes to put the armor on in a hurry. The armor check penalty and armor bonus for hastily donned armor are each 1 point worse than normal. For example, if Tordek donned his scale mail hastily, it would take him 1 minute (10 rounds), the armor would provide only a +3 bonus to his AC (instead of +4), and his armor check penalty would be -5 (instead of -4)."
