Final Myanthea event was this past weekend, which was also my final NERO event. Was a fantastic event, epic and occasionally heart-wrenching and funny and just all around awesome. Complimented the staff after the event on the *pacing* of the event, which is an odd thing, I think, to focus on, but it really was fantastic.

On to the highlights: )

And my awesome teaser for the event, cause I want to be able to find it )

final thoughts on NERO Omi )

This weekend was the Myanthea one-day. As usual, that meant that [livejournal.com profile] sarrciano and I drove to my parents' house (20 minutes from the site) to crash there Friday night. My dad was there, and we chatted a bit and watched an episode of Macguyver, which was really fun.

Saturday we slept in a bit, then headed to Myanthea )

Anyway, Myanthea was a ton of fun, except as usual, we didn't get out of there until well after midnight. Happily, a bed in my parents' house was still only 20 minutes away, so we drove there and crashed.

On Sunday, we were mostly brain-dead and spent most of the day sitting and staring blankly at stuff, or napping. Then, around dinnertime, got asked if we wanted to go see Hunger Games with a bunch of friends. Sure, why not?

I liked the movie. My main problem with it was that we were sitting in the second row, and the shaky camera thing started making me *very* nauceous 20 minutes into the movie, to the point where I started staring at my lap in order to not have to leave the theater. Eventually I figured out that if I tilted my head at a sharp enough angle the black above and below the screen would be in my field of vision and I wouldn't get sick. After that, really enjoyed the movie. Katniss is a badass, and so different than many of the female heroines. :) Will have to read the book.

Then we decided to go to dinner, which was a ton of fun, but probably not the best idea, as it led to us not getting home until after midnight. 6:20 AM came very early for me Monday morning, and I suspect 5-something AM came even earlier for [livejournal.com profile] sarricano. Ah well, was worth it. :)

So, there's been some ridiculous amounts of excitement among some of my friends about the Myanthea one-day that happened this past weekend. I was unable to get up that much excitement, either because of larp/work burn-out, or because I just wasn't as involved in stuff, or because I never actually played Myanthea when it was a game before, so a lot of the people involved weren't as real to me.

I figured, though, that I'd get into it when I got there.

I was right! )

I'm still kinda tired, both from the event and from helping someone move the next day, but I'm glad we went. Is good to pay forward karma from all the times people have helped me move.
