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!

Bleh, I need to get a tumblr or something. When it comes to livejournal these days, I am the failingest fail that ever did fail. Here is a condensed version of the past few weeks:

- Nate's parents came to visit for a week, and it was lovely to see them again.

- I finally got an iPhone, and can now a) read books on ALL THE DEVICES, and b) play Scrabble with my cousin in Vermont. The magic of technology!

- Nate and I got a puppy! He's a four-month-old lab/border collie mix, and he's precious. We named him Cuddy, because Nate's currently reading Men at Arms and we both think "Cuddy" is a pretty awesome name*. Our Cuddy is not a dwarf, nor does he sport an amazing beard, but the name still somehow works for him.

- Aaaaand...everything else: nursing school preparations and Pokemon and excitement over Portal 2 and being all, "Man, I really need more IKEA bookshelves, 'cause the bookshelves I have sure aren't cutting it in the shelving all of my books department." I am so seriously boring, my god. :I

- No, really, it's ridiculous. I spent a good chunk of my lunch hour looking at scrubs online, all, "I know I prefer a drawstring waist to elastic for the pants, but how many pockets will I need?!?!?!" This is my life now, folks. These are my choices.

- Classes start on June 21. I am mentally keysmashing so hard at this that it would be utterly ludicrous to type it out.


* Whatever animal joins our menagerie next, I'm totally naming it Detritus. Even if it's a girl.

WE GOT THE HOUSE
♥♥♥


The real estate agent left us a key to use until the locks are changed and such, and let me tell you, it was SURREAL to walk around inside going, "So...this is ours now." No more landlord, no more roommates, no more up and moving every year, no more lease agreements. We've got a home now, one that's real and solid and permanent, and I don't know if I can really express just how big and important this is for me. I can't wait to get my hands dirty with this house, to paint the walls and redo the floors, to plan -- and plant -- my garden. To really and truly settle in with Nate, whom I adore beyond all reason.

Rainbows and cupcakes, y'all. I am really feeling the rainbows and cupcakes today.
