Woke up feeling shit today. Bad, bad headache (have taken pills and loads of water) :(
I've been a bit iffy all week but I had time off then. Supposed to be back at work today for a stretch that covers the weekend and into next week. Already rung in and am *hoping* the other guys turn up on time and can cope, at least for a few hours.
Once in a while I'll have a dream that reveals something to me. I learnt the basics of driving a car in a dream once (what the pedals do, how to use the gear stick and clutch, etc....). I've also dreamt up solutions to problems before now as well as ideas/mechanics for games.
Well, last nights dream had me playing a very good superhero adventure card game. I was exploring the mechanics of it and had a lot of fun with it. Luckily enough I remember most of it when I woke up this morning and have managed to jot down the basics already. It looks like a sound concept and system even in the harsh light (or murky grey cloud infested sky) of day. Shall play around with it some more...
I also had a dream where I was attending a gamers/sci-fi convention that was actually held in the future. Think lots of neon lights, chrome and flying cars :) Most of my dream was actually sent in a night-club/bar (typical convention for me then!) chatting to various convention attendees from all over the world (Brazil, Holland, Ireland, etc) and having a great time. I was also very fond of a little Irish girl who did actually remind me of someone (ho hum..). Anyway, woke up feeling like I'd had a wonderful night out (maybe that explains my headache???)
God it's getting around isn't it. If you think it's bad on yours Friends page just check out your 'FriendsFriends' page!!!!
At least I've appeared in a few of them now though. I was beginning to feel very unloved :(
Oh, am now at work. Headache is alot better although neck/back ache is still irritating.
Anyway, need food AND that chocolate attack I spoke about earlier....
I have a horrible feeling that most of my Edinburgh readers have high-tailed it off to the States for GenCon but I'm hoping a few of you have been left behind.
Years ago I brought about 1000 blank playing cards mail order from a specialist playing card shop on Princess Street in Edinburgh. Unfortunately I can't remember it's name nor find it through Google by typing in the usual suspects (Edinburgh Princess Street Shop Playing Cards...).
I was wondering if any of you knew the shop and could either tell me it's name or even better a contact telephone number?
Much gratitude will be given in thanks!
