Man, how would that be?  The month of August is right at the start of my second-busiest time of year...it's when we tear down our summer shows and start getting ready for Halloween season at the park.

August is quiet where I work - it's when most people are on vacation or, like in my case, getting READY for vacation.

Have a great time, you two!  ^_^

We have about three busy times per year, depending on when certain hospital systems have their fiscal year-ends. Other than that it's very random/steady.

Vacay going well so far!

We have thirteen more days of shows...then we jump on tearing down the summer stuff and putting up the Halloween stuff.  It'll be interesting...we're theoretically doing pretty much the same stuff we did last Halloween, for entertainment...we were going to change up our Seance show, but the new bits they wanted to add were...well, 'cost-prohibitive' comes to mind (and this is a show that they spent tens of thousands of dollars on putting together in the first place, so you get some idea of what that might mean...)  There will be some stuff that will be easy to take care of...we're basically repeating the light hang from last year's show for our main-stage show, and the music is all the same...but they're going to have to tweak at least a few things, because there was stuff we used last year that CAN'T be used again this year, because the places where we had it mounted no longer exist on the stage (including the solo positions for the two guitarists), and a bunch of the set dressing was designed around features on the stage that are no longer there, so it could be an interesting change-over, depending on just how much stuff has to get relocated.  And I honestly have no idea what's going on with our other show...I know it's supposed to be in the same location, and presumably will have the same lights...I hope they let us run all the cables before they put the deck on the stage, because it sucks crawling around under the stage when you're a middle-aged guy who's becoming increasingly inflexible, physically.  But I don't know if we're using the same lights, or how many of them will be available if they decide to keep them down at the existing stage...

But, yeah...there's gonna be plenty to be done in the four weeks or so between when our summer shows end and our Halloween shows start...

I'm starting to worry we might have a burgeoning serial killer droid on our hands...posts coming today in all of my games, I'm working on them.

You're only starting to worry about that now?  I've had my reservations about him since the episode where we were trying to find the mole in the Alliance HQ...maybe even earlier, but that was where I started wondering if maybe he hadn't gotten cross-programmed with an interrogator or even assassin droid...

But there's also just a chance that he's just become really bitter about how he's been treated by biologicals, so I'm willing to wait and see.

Hello! I have returned from the Void. Vacay was good. And then there was many things. And I needed an on-line break for a while.

Glad to see we're still mired hip-deep in the yak droppings.

Welcome back.  While you were away, You-Why seems to have gone nutso, and wants to take care of the highly important alien baby space princess.  Shard told him that would be okay.  No worries...

Bleah...sorry about going radio-silent for a while, all...we commonly refer to the week before we open shows as 'Hell Week'...and this year, it started a week early.  I've been working 13-15 hour days for most of the last two weeks (several a little longer than that, between my two jobs...)

But, hey, shows are up and running, and most of the stuff is done, now it's just upkeep.  And catching up on desperately needed sleep...

I hope I did't miss anything with the driod examination. I'm rubbish at picking up on clues.

That's why I usually just have your character find a big cardboard box labelled "IMPORTANT CLUES!!!"...

Would like to post a longer thing, but I can't.  :)  Will wait for Haarmon - that's not a prod, Haarmon!

Life's too short NOT to give a shout-out to you all for being awesome.  This is a special game, and a special group.  Thanks to Ron and all ya'll for being great. :)

I have always enjoyed this particular game, and continue to do so...and hope to do so for a long time to come.  I've played enough different games to know that the chemistry...or perhaps alchemy would be a better term, since the results can be magical...of the players and the GM can make or break any game.  With the right group, I can have fun playing just about anything...and with the wrong group, it doesn't matter how much I enjoy any particular system or setting, the game becomes a chore.

You all are definitely 'the right group'.  Thanks for being such an enjoyable distraction!  *grin*

Truth!

I've played a lot of fine games.  Many of those were with this GM.  :)  And some, with this GM and the proper players, were absolutely stellar.  This game is on that list.

I wish I had more time these days, is all.  :(
