11:46 am - fu**
Well .. I was just about to be finished with my update on the last few days as i accidentally hit a wrong button, the explorer went back to the starting page, and everything is lost. And I'm soo not in the mood to write it all again.

Basically, it's been about Thursday's meeting with our Vampire-LARP group, Friday's timekilling as Helga was playing the RPG where I'm not in the group, Saturday's playing RPG with Petz, Almut, Babsi, Kabel and Helga, Sunday's lunch with family and relaxing, yesterday's thinking about improving rules and today's hunger.

Will go get something to eat soon ....

And .. maybe I'l get Helga to make a drawing for me .. for my new character named Valerian :)

current mood: annoyed

11:14 am - Eating
So .. yesterday Helga and me were at "Eat - Asia Cooking", a fine restaurant near our favorite shopping street, celebrating our 4th annuary relationship.

The food was nice, though a bit expensive for the size of the portions ;)

Then we went to McDonalds for dessert and icecream (we wanted to avoid paying up to 6€ for a - possibly - small sized dessert). Yeah .. sounds a bit stingy ... but it's kinda fun going to McDonalds for dessert after a dinner at a fine restaurant (reminds me of Barcelona ... hee hee).

Then we went to the cinema, watching a sneak preview.
The movie was .. well .. with lots of action and stunts. The overall storyline wasn't bad either ... but the dialoges and ... well ... very funny.

There was so much "coolness" in the mimics, gestures and dialoges .... it almost hurt.

And now .. I'm a bit bored and hungry again. Will wait for lunch until it's at least noon. Ok .. I have to admit that I forgot to eat breakfast again .. but at least this time I didn't forget the soup ;)

I looked up certain evenings schools in the internet too. I'm not yet sure if I prefer making AHS or HAK. So far, I have found no evenings school teaching spanish as third language. It's always only french ... and I'd prefer spanish. But well .. if there is no shool teaching spanish .. then I guess I have to learn french.
Only descision yet to make is whether it will be a HAK or an AHS.

And in the evening .. I think I will sort the remaining VTES cards into the ring binder. Maybe I'l also stop by the shopping street and get my copy of Gehenna :)

current mood: a bit bored and hungry

10:39 am - Diet
Diet is going well ... hm .. at least I think so.
As i don't have a wage at home, i can only guess.

Exept for Sundays (Football - beer and chips), I was successful in resisting the urge to eat more, or to eat more unhealthy or fat stuff.

Though I maybe should start eating breakfast .. I almost always kinda forget about that in the morning. But well .. I could stand whole days without food .. I can stand a Morning without food. Mind over Matter.

It's now the 5th full day without a cigarette. And i have to say .. it's getting easier and easier.

I think it was a good idea to stop smoking while being on a diet. I think without the diet I would have eated a lot more food, even more than usual, and would have gotten even more weigh on my hips (and belly).

So ...

Today Helga and me will celebrate our 4th annual relationship.
Dinner and Cinema.

But .. I still have to get an idea of what to buy her. 10 € maximum (as agreed) ... and no idea what I could buy her. Hmm .. I think i just had one :)

Let's see if the idea turns out to be good enough to finally get realized.
I had a few ideas yet .. but each was swiftly cancelled due to either me being unable to really do it (would have invlved some handicrafts), or just not good enough for my dear :)

1:11 pm - Life in the City
So ...

Yesterday we saw the Eagles-Panthers game. Well ... wasn't worth the 4 hours sleep I paid for it. More Interceptions than Points scored .. do I have to say more?

On the other Hand ... It was a nice evening. The Patriots-Colts game showed some really good moves .. and we had a lot of fun.

Today I chose to take a walk in my midday break instead of eating. So .. I just found out that there is a large recreation area about 5 minutes from my workplace. Wandered a bit through it .. and watched all those ravens flying around (hundreds of them ...).

After work I'l do the "Merkur-Shopping", as there is a Merkur supermarket very near my workplace, and I wanted to help a little bit out concerning shopping (Usually, Helga does most of the food-shopping).

current mood: okay

There i am ready to go on my first jogging trip for years .... and then the ******* jogging pants i bought are too small.
One should think that size L should be at least large enough. It doesn't have to fit perfectly .. but with the measure somewhere above my knees .... GAH

I Am A: Chaotic Good Elf Ranger Druid


Alignment:
Chaotic Good characters are independent types with a strong belief in the value of goodness. They have little use for governments and other forces of order, and will generally do their own things, without heed to such groups.


Race:
Elves are the eldest of all races, although they are generally a bit smaller than humans. They are generally well-cultured, artistic, easy-going, and because of their long lives, unconcerned with day-to-day activities that other races frequently concern themselves with. Elves are, effectively, immortal, although they can be killed. After a thousand years or so, they simply pass on to the next plane of existance.


Primary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.


Secondary Class:
Druids are a special variety of Cleric who serves the Earth, and can call upon the power in the earth to accomplish their goals. They tend to be somewhat fanatical about defending natural settings.


Deity:
Solonor Thelandria is the Chaotic Good elven god of archery and the hunt. He is also known as the Keen Eye, the Great Archer, and the Forest Hunter. His followers respect nature, and only hunt when needed, but are quick to defend the forest from intruders. Their favorite weapon is the bow, and they tend to be extremely talented with it. Solonor Thelandria's symbol is an arrow with green fletchings.

2:07 pm - food
Ok .. so I was at Merkur.
It turned ut that the lady behind the counter didn't know the difference between "Putenschinken" und "Putenextra". Well .. the "Putenextra" wasn't bad either ...
And I found out that i know sh... about bread. I mean .. everytime i stand before the counter and have to say which bread i want to have ... I just don't know. Because I don't know all their names, and I don't know which ones taste well for me and which don't. So i almost always take "Mixed Bread" ... exept for those rare cases where i have the time to look at them and point at the one which looks best to me.
Interesting .. isn't it? ;)

Ok .. now that i'm finished with the boring stuff ...
Met Jürgen on the way to the kitchen, and we spoke about my diet and quitting of smoking. He encouraged me on the descisions, and wished me good luck. Was a nice chat.

And .. i came to the conclusion that I should demand at least one kiss from Helga for each cigarette I don't smoke anymore (which would be around 15 per day). Yeah ... cause .. cause .. I want to demand something ;) ... and it's not like she doesn't benefit from me stopping to smoke.

12:18 pm - Randomness
So ... i finally smoked my last remaining cigarette. Let's see if my self-control is still as good as i thought it to be :)

And .. I will go to Merkur soon. Get something healthy to eat (probably bread with ham, as Helga suggested. She told me that it's not good if I only eat vegetables each lunch. I think she's right).

Yesterday evening was nice. Been at the evenings school, and they told me that i could start in february. Just need some more paperwork.
And i bought a pull-up bar. After trying it out, I found out that i just barely managed 3 pull up's on it. Whaaa! There was some time that I did 10-15 on it ... well, now I have about 10 kilo's more to hieve up ..

The rest of the evening was a nice relaxing with even nicer snuggling with Helga :)

And I called Helmuth (Main Storyteller of our LARP) and played something with him on the phone. Talked about half an hour about an action my character has taken ... tee hee hee *evil grin*

10:09 am - Tiredness
Yesterday's VTES games were great. Well .. ok ... i won all 3 games i played, so i'm probably a little biased, but the last game really was one to remember. It was one of those long lasting games where it's thrilling til the very end.

My Prey was Richard playing a weenie Obfuscate weenie horde with votes. Opposite sat Nick with his Arika/Leandro/Salubri Voters/Bloaters, and my predator was Mario with a Setite Combat deck. I was playing my little Gangrel Deck.

So .. as Nick brought out Arika, and Richard had no Princes, and no Praxis Seizures yet, all Richard could do was bleed for 1 with stealth (which he did a lot, playing weenies). I brought out more and more Gangrels, and pushed up heavily on Zack (played all Disciplinecards on him, + ritual Challenge (giving him a base strength of 3) + Raven Spies.

Nick was really fast, but didn't want to oust his prey yet, as i had 3 Raven Spies on Zack, and he wanted some more time with no interceptor to the left and right. Meanwhile, my predator ceased from trying to bleed me due to Zack always staying untapped, and me having shown to be better in combat, and, of course, also due to having Nick on his Back. So he mainly hunted with his Blood Dolled Vampires.
I stopped attacking my prey, giving him enough space to be a thorn in Nick's ass, and collected 3 pool each Round with my 3 Blood Dolled Vampires.
And so it went on and on, with Nick burning 4 Vampires with PTO (i'm so glad that only 2 vampires in my crypt are not Camarilla .. 2 weenies), stole my Hunting Ground and finally ousted My Predator. But i had enough time to build up against him (got a 4th Raven Spy in the meantime - and lot's of pool), ousted my prey (ok .. he was kinda tired at that time already .. so he didn't show much of resistance, though he didn't make it too easy either), and in the final fight betwen me and Nick, i brought him down (he also ran out of cards, though i doubt that he could have ousted me even with some cards remaining, as i had a vampire with 4 built in intercept, 4 blood dolls and 7 vampires in general). Now .. that was helluva Fun :-)

And now .. i'm a lil bit tired, because we played this game until 2 am, and i "only" got about 5,5 hours of sleep.

Besides: The forum for our LARP group is online again - yipee (spam spam spam)

current mood: tired

*snip day by day review*

Finally my nose is recovering from the cold it seems.
Helga is reading part one of the Brujah Trilogy (wonder when she will come along one of my most favorite scenes ..) and i started to make day by day reviews here on my Livejournal, but decided against it. I just don't want my LJ to degenerate into a "did this and did that" blah.

Hmm .. so what should i else write about?
Got to post for both Elias and Alith (my online - RPG characters), but i'm not in the mood for it right now. Maybe later or tomorrow.

I'm also trying myself at making a rulessystem for a new RPG made by a friend of mine. Though i don't even know if she'd be happy with my version, or with any "new" version, i do it nevertheless. Just for the challenge. That's the tactician in me breaking through :)

I'm trying to keep the system easy (as few dicerolls as possible), but still as realistic and complex (complex meaning characterchoices and possibilities - not dicerules) as possible.

So far i'm pretty satisfied. My system would require even less dicerolls in combat :D

Apart from that, i'm just lazing around after a day split between laziness and doing stuff for our apartment.

current mood: blah

11:34 am - Blah
Our Rulebook for the LARP is finally getting finished soon. Helmuth, Helga and me discussed some missing parts yesterday, and, as we pretty much share our opinion on how it should be set, we came to agreements quickly.

And .. i have finished my Character for "Monde über Shorasu", the homemade RPG from Petz. Yay!
He is much better rounded, and i have a good feeling about it. It will be much fun to play him :)

I hope Helga buys enough Beer for today's party .. maybe i will call her. A Bottle of Batida de Coco would be nice too :)

Todays lunch consists of 3 pears.
Yesterday it was a pack of carrots.

I suppose tomorrow it will be apples... but then i'm kinda out of ideas for low-calorie lunch. Anyone here with ideas for what i could get at the local supermarket?

(I don't eat: bananas, plums, cold cheese and meat with bones)

9:48 am - Thoughts
Yesterday evening was really nice.

Petz (our Storyteller for the new RPG) came by after work, and we did character generation and single-sessions (Petz, Helga and me).

As usual, my charactergeneration took me VERY much time to get my character done.
I always need several shifts til my characters are finished.
First, the tactician in me kinda gets through, and i subconsciously try to get the most out of my character.

Then i look at the sheet ... and the roleplayer gets through. It just doesn't really fit what i had in mind. Not rounded enough. Well ...

But i have a completed concept, so i was ready for the single-session.

As i didn't get much sleep this night (went to bed late, and as Helga is semi-ill, she shifted around and around ... and did weird sounds. I tried to help her steady her breath .. but to no avail), i was very tired in the morning. After the usual procedure (dressing, toilet, bathroom), i started again on my character generation (yes, i know that i probably should have done something like breakfast, or cleaning up the apartment, but well ... that's me - but i plan to do some cleaning in the evening before the meeting with Helmuth).
He's not yet finished, but already seems better rounded and more fitting than my first try.

Work is as usual. Along the way of working, i think about various topics (Always keep my mind busy ;)

It's a mix between how i will finish my character and general thoughts about love, trust, honesty, and fear.

After Work i will go to Mahü (Shoppingstreet), and try to get a smaller sweater for Helga (The one i bought her for christmas is too large. - Is a man supposed to know that Man-M Size is larger than Woman-M Size?

Then i will hug Helga (already looking forward to that :), and start cleaning up a bit before Helmuth's arrival.
Then we will do some rules-discussion for our LARP.

Depending on how long it takes, i either get to sleep right after that, or finish cleaning up (My shoes really need a brush).

Well .. at least those are my plans ...

current mood: thoughtful

5:25 pm - It's been a long long time
Since i last cared about my Livejournal.

Well, i want to start on it again. This time with more experiences and less quizzes ;)

So far there has been nothing spectacular today.
Stood up, went to work .. etc. etc. etc.

In the evening Petz will visit us (Me and Helga), and we will will make up our characters for her home-brewed RPG. Yay!

I won't tell you what i will play .. not yet ;)
chances are that some other players read it .. and that would be less of a surprise in the game then.

Tomorrow i will meet Helmuth again. He stops by for doing some rules-stuff for the LARP we'r Storytelling. Well, i'm not really a Storyteller. Just a "Rulemonger", and giving general advise. Kinda.

And now it's 17:30. Time for me to go home and give Helga a big hug :)

1:40 pm - Mc Donalds
Every time i go to a Mc Donalds, and tell the guy behind the ocunter that i want a XY-Burger and large Pommes, he askes if i want to have the menu.

If i ******* want to have the menu, i'd have asked for it, and no for a single burger and pommes...
