Watching “The Sleepover” in My PJs

This made me laugh out loud more than once, and the action scenes are as good as any more serious action film. But what really makes it stand out is the child actors’ performances. I gave it “double thumbs up” rating on Netflix.

Considering how subdued this flu has me right now, and how picky I can be at the best of times, that it made me laugh and left me grinning is saying something.

Slooowly recovering from this intestinal flu bug. Sleeping most of the time. It’s taking a toll on my limbic system. Which is to say that inactivity triggers my clinical depression.

Not complainin’; just reportin’.

Meanwhile, the bookmarks continue to do well. The Bookmark Dragon Dice RPG has become a DriveThruRPG Copper Best Seller (which means the entire dozen bookmark titles are now best-sellers), and the Paranormal Wordbookmark has risen to Silver!

Next on my agenda:

  • Finish the 21-card adventure deck for previous Kickstarter backers.
  • Turn Battle Bookmark notes into text for play-test.
  • Take another trimming pass through D6xD6 e2 to get it down to 48 pages in time for February’s KS Zine Quest.
  • Turn notes for Ann Christy‘s Neverending End of the World novel into a bookmark RPG. (I asked, because it’s a wonderful novel. And I love her handling of language as much as LeGuin’s.)
  • Build a D6xD6 player’s mini-deck for use with the GameMaster’s Apprentice and HandiQuest pack.
  • Do the same for D13—which also means formalizing a way of using GMA as tarot or poker cards.
  • Somewhere in the midst of all that, record a pair of video demos of playing D&D modules with D6xD6 and Bookmark HP RPGs.
  • And then recheck my list of future projects. Especially things I’ve promised.

(There’s construction & maintenance work to be tinkered with around the homestead, too. I never forget, Jennifer.)

How’s that for a footrace, Grim Reaper?

Forty-five years ago, I drove to Chicago for an Army entrance test. I scored high on the “fold this box in your head & choose the correct one below” questions. They wanted to enlist me as a mapmaker; I wanted to be a graphic designer, so I drove back home a civilian.

(If I’d known map making was my buddy Larry Elmore‘s Army MOS, I’d’ve been smarter & enlisted.)

Still, those box-folding-in-your-head skills have come in handy lately for print-&-play PDFs of cards & bookmarks. The format I’ve come up with lets you choose between printing one side only & folding down the middle for front & back, or printing on both sides with front & back matched up.

Here’s a link to a free PDF example, if you’re curious: Bookmark HP RPG PnP PDF
