I Rolled a D20 To See If I Should Post This

(Not really)

I doubt that it will come as any surprise that I am a major nerd. Whatever- I don’t have a problem with it. I embraced it long ago: I will never be “cool.”

Part of what makes me a nerd is my deep love of a very classically nerdy thing: Dungeons and Dragons. I can’t help it. My husband introduced me to it 12 years ago, and it was like I was finally home. A non-competitive game? With a story line? And fantasy creatures? And I get to kill evil stuff? And pretend I’m big and tough or magical or smart or anything else I’m not? SWEET.

So maybe that’s why this so is damn funny to me, and may not be to you. Because you are most likely not as nerdy as I am.

Adventuring Party Politics

And if you are interested, here are a few links to great posts about my political obsession this week:

Up Popped a Fox

Lesbian Dad

Looky Daddy

I can’t think about it much more or I may go on a lawn-sign-smashing, bumper-sticker-defacing campaign, and I don’t really want to do those things. I already voted. My friends and family are voting this way. There’s not a lot more I feel I can do at this point.

    I failed my save vs. laughter roll, and it was totally worth it.

    Yeah, I just finished the third book in the Eragon what-was-supposed-to-be-a-damn-trilogy-but-has-now-become-a-quadogy series. Way dorky over here.
