Well…. aren’t the IMPS doing well eh? 3-2 against Woking and our mate won I couple of hundred on a result bet. I must say it’s great to see ones hometown doing so well. Short but sweet, Jam out!
What a miserable Monday. The weekend worker has done next to nothing again and her areas of work are pretty appalling, despite having 90 mins longer and less tasks that the previous person. Poor Sponge is feeling really down. Which in turn gets me down too as I’m such a pessimist.
Think I might take a couple of relatives off my Facebook list. I’m pretty sure they simply relay other people’s business to those they shouldn’t. Not to mention ignore you for months on end then kick up a fuss on your own wall. Who needs it? The world’s full of enough shit. I wonder how long it would take them to notice? Bearing in mind they haven’t contacted me since January 13th…watch this space!
On a happier note I’ve ordered my Zombie Dice. Such an addicting yet easy game to play. Think I’m going to sell my bike. I’ve had some incredible rides on it but I only rode it maybe three times last year. It should go to someone who can use it everyday. It’s still in great shape considering its in its fourth year so refuse to let it go for less than £50 but will list it at £100ono. End of an era, from from the old always comes something new!
Today was a busy day in #Lincoln with #TheAsylum annual #steampunk festival in full swing. Each and every one of the participants from all over the world looked splendid. Amid the population surge of costumed chaos … Jonathan Green, author of several Fighting Fantasy books was giving a talk about his up and coming gamebook Alice’s Nightmare In Wonderland. As a kickstarter backer of this project, it was too much of an opportunity to miss meeting him and even having a little playthrough of the first draft with the other guests. Whereas Fighting Fantasy readers would use Skill, Stamina and Luck to determine the major outcomes of the adventure… I can let you know there will be a similar technique but also with a Sanity characteristic.
As he read out umpteen sections and the audience made votes to decide which route Alice took, I felt it was my turn to speak up. ‘Drink the liquid’ I called out with a freeing excitement. Low and behold this action took us to a previously unnoticed editing fault. Trust me to be the first proof reader! A slightly embarrassed but giggling Jonathan then took questions from the attendees before a signing out in the main hall.
Fighting Fantasy fans may be wondering if there shall ever be another FFF. I can reveal that this is a topic that isn’t forgotten and has been pitched to Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson. Remain vigilant fellow FF fans… it might happen!
Thanks for the meet Jonathan, always a pleasure.
Well set off a bit later than I though I would on my second geocaching quest. Managed to get halfway along the Lincoln to Bardney route down by the River Witham. Managed to locate 11 altogether , I think a few had been lots to yobs but the all interesting troves were still there. Swapped a keyring for a squidgy lizard. The temptation now is, to pump up the bike tyres and do a ride out to Bardney, locating the caches along the other half of the way. Lets see. Anyone else taking this route…watch out for dinosaurs along the way.
Well guys and girls… I managed to complete my epic voyage, and now I ache all over lol. Still managed to make it to the old pub quiz with the gang but today I’m taking it much easier whilst my muscle tissue binds back together. That’ll teach me for leaving it so long. Here is how I did anyway… and for more of my cycling escapades visit my sister blog at jamstracks.com 😉
