I should really be doing my epidemiology homework right now, but instead I seem to be doing this. Suck it, homework!

So. Earlier tonight, my boyfriend told me that he'd been thinking about things for a while now, like really thinking about them, but he'd finally come to a decision: he wants to run a 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

The sound I made over the phone was the vocal equivalent of this face: :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D!!!!!

See, I've been wanting to play D&D again for ages, but...I don't know a lot of people who play? I played a little with Nate's old gaming group, but he hasn't seen those guys in ages and also they made me feel twelve kinds of awkward. They weren't mean or anything; actually, they were really awesome, especially considering I'd never played before. But they were all older than I was and they were also MEGA GEEKS -- we're talking Ur Geeks here, the Geeks That Define All Geeks -- and although I'd been an awkward little lit-nerd since I was wee, I'd only really begun to embrace my geekdom in the past several years or so. Some of them, on the other hand? Had been playing D&D since before I was in the double-digits. You have to admit, that's kind of intimidating.

I'm really psyched about the idea of Nate running a campaign, though, especially since some of the other people at the table will be about my level experience-wise. I just recently discovered that one of my school friends has been hiding his total geekdom from everyone (he finally decided to level with me on the basis that I (a) knew what the uncanny valley was and got all excited when someone else mentioned it; (b) knew who Terry Pratchett was and got all excited when someone else mentioned him; and (c) wear t-shirts that reference Futurama and Portal and quantum physics and Cthulhu and things). It turns out that he runs a Legend of the Five Rings game and when I got all excited about that (sue me, I'm easily excited!), he invited me to join. This means I may have TWO tabletop RPGs in my future.

I am a lucky, lucky girl.

And, just to round out the sheer, unabashed dorkiness of this post, I am SO putting in a pre-order for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning at GameStop tomorrow. I played the demo yesterday and fell utterly in love with it, to the point where I played it twice. It's just so shiny!
