This was a pretty big weekend. I usually write these Sunday afternoon, but this one was delayed until the evening, after possibly the most exciting Superbowl in…I don’t know…ever? Thirty-one unanswered points? A 25 point comeback? The first overtime in Superbowl history? The Fox streaming feed going out and having to watch a chunk of the fourth quarter in Spanish? It was eventful, I’ll tell you that much.
I found the flood originally straightening up for the playtest in the playtest room in the basement, so that’s how the weekend started. In between, I played a lot of Blood Bowl II, which seemed particularly appropriate for Superbowl Weekend. I won the campaign mode literally ten minutes before kickoff. I started up an Old World League Tournament after, but then paused it to write this.
Also during this, I emailed my copyeditor to find out if I’d lost an email somewhere. Back at the end of December, I’d turned in my full rewrite of DbC 2 for him to go over. He usually has a pretty quick turn around, and he’d sent me a few facebook messages early on that led me to believe he’d jumped right into a second round of edits. During the big game we emailed back and forth a few confused date emails, but it came down to the fact that he had finished but the email had never actually been sent. So now I have the edits. It should be a non-issue for me to get them out this week.
I still have flood damage to repair. I also need to prep a big Star Wars demo for Life the Universe and Everything, a symposium in Provo. It will have an audience, so I want it to be as professional as possible. Anyway, a full enough week, but I’m looking forward to it.
