For the past few weeks I have been playing Dungeons & Dragons with some of my brother's friends from high school. I'm not great at it, I mostly just shoot at things with a longbow, but my character has a guinea pig companion named Potato whose hijinks and high dice rolls have made him quite popular with the party.
When I'm not playing games or making crafts, I've been trying to find good books to read. This is not going so well lately. Some highlights in the parade of garbage I've been picking up at the library: Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly, The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden by Karina Yan Glaser, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien, which I finally got around to finishing. Right now I'm reading Spark by Sarah Beth Durst (whose last name means "thirsty" in German, by the way) and it's pretty cute. I mean, who wouldn't want a telepathic bond with a dragon-like best friend?
I think I'll get back to reading now... Have a day!
