WorldWide Game Day

Today was worldwide game day. So I hung out at the local gaming store for a while. It was PACKED. In addition to all the Dungeons and Dragons gamers there to celebrate, there was a Warhammer 40K tournament as well. That took over half the store because it was a massive game. I know I've been told several times exactly what was going on with them today, but I can't remember. I don't play the game, so I don't keep up.
This year the Wizards DnD module was awesome. Last year the module wasn't really winable and the pregenerated characters really sucked. This year the characters were very well done and the module was awesome. I know that there were at least 6 games played. Of those 6 only group lost, and more than one group had all the characters survive. I played the fighter in my game, and she was the best made character in the group. She was awesome! This year the players kept the characters instead of the DM, so I got to take her home. That made me happy. She will be an awesome addition to my desk at work. All the players also received a Spined Devil DnD Mini. That figure came not only with the DnD minis card, but also the minis 2.0 card and a preview of the DnD 4th edition stats. 4th edition comes out sometime next year, and I think this was the first stats they released on it. My husband played the rogue in the game I was in, and also played another game as the paladin. He thought those characters were well done also. I think it was a very successful day.

After hanging out at the store a while I headed home to get some homework done. My major assignment right now is some Office 2007 simulations. The simulation software SUCKS. It doesn't always read what you are doing. You might do the same thing 5 times before it realizes you are actually doing it right. I finished one assignment and started another tonight. My goal was to get four, if not five, assignments done in the simulation thingie this weekend. I don't think I will make it though. You have to go through a pretest, then training on everything you missed, then do a test on all of it for the actual grade. It takes forever. I've probably spent about 5 hours to get my 3.3 assignments done so far. And there are 12 total. I'll try to get some done tomorrow, but we are visiting the hubby's parents, and I can't work on it out there. Dial up is not friendly to simulation downloads. These simulations are awful though. They make me cry, scream, cuss, and throw things. Not necessarily in that order. They are seriously annoying. I'll be thrilled when I finally finish them. I'll just have to remember to get up in the morning so I can try and finish the one I started tonight before we leave, and hope we get back in time for me to do another tomorrow night. Then I'll just have to force myself to actually work on them throughout the week.

Well, I went back and took a look at my weigh ins for October. I lost 5 lbs, and didn't have any gains during the month. I think that might be the first month I've finished that way this year. And with all my birthday meals to boot!!! Here's to doing well in November!!!!

You did VERY well to lose 5lb's! Congratulations! I don't envy you re: the assignments. There are always aspects to a course of study that feel like torture...and/or useless/pointless. Keep going! I wish you well.. and also a faster internet connection speed.. it sounds like you need it. Also thanks so much for dropping by my blog and commenting.. it means a lot :-)

Congrats on your 5 pound loss.

It sounds like you had a fabulous DnD time yesterday. Awesome! And how cool was it that your fighter was the best made character! I often secretly wish that I could go to BlizzCon...but I'm afraid of how much teasing I'd get from my husband...it would be a lot of teasing.

Good luck on all of your assignments. They always seem due all at the same time.
