If you like playing D&D you should check out some of my books. Most of them are free!
If you do read any of them, I'd be incredibly grateful if you left a review. They help people find and enjoy my work, which in turn helps me pay rent, which in turn helps me make more books because it's hard to write when you don't have a place to live. =)
#DnD today may or may not have 8 players (eight!!) and some may or may not be running late. So I'm doing a bar scene where they can come in whenever.The bar has been taken over by a bard whose tongue has been cut out -he's quite, mad, yes. Now I need to figure out spells he can cast with only gestures. Too bad magic mouth couldn't be used to cast ha ha. He'd be unstoppable.
"Do not feed the musicians!" the band director pleaded with a smile.
A few hundred students were waiting to perform as the jazz band took the stage. While they waited, the musicians, ages 12-14, were no doubt eyeing the treats available in the lobby.
"You play wind and brass instruments," she explained. "You use your breath. It's not good for your instruments if you play after just eating. Yuck. Families, do not feed the musicians!"
We all laughed, and then followed instructions. #smallstories
Oof I've been quiet lately. Busy with the everything. Yup.
#DnD this week has one new player and two new characters joining the party & I'm guessing 2 players who can't make it. So our story will begin like this: 2 bards walk into a bar...I'm calling this spitballed gem BardOff at the Stumbleon Inn. It's a real Brew Ha Ha.
My husband this morning was growling about how his female boss responded to some derogatory statements from their male boss by just ignoring them. I snorted and told him that she's a woman in a STEM field so yeah, she's had LOTS of practice. He asked me what the heck that had to do with it. SMH Sometimes, I think my husband lives under a rock.
A customer who was really really hateful and made me cry when I first started this job has just brought me a cinnamon roll. I thanked him profusely and got the sweetest "you're very welcome" from him. I didn't have the heart to tell him I'm dieting and can't have bread or sugar. Especially on cinnamon rolls. The kind thought counts more than the forbidden carbs anyhow.
I work in a tag office - I process driver's licenses. The new printer set up is overdoing the red layer on license pictures and I have no control over that setting. So I thought through the problem and moved my customers 2 inches closer to the camera. The flash burn balances out the red intensity pretty well, I think.
