Good Weekend
Saturday's run went pretty well - the mysterious bits confused them for a while, and then there were some funny bits. They didn't leave the planet to be consumed by Agent Morden's version of reality (though it was a close thing); they did leave the big combat with the Terrans to Dr. Kye to do solo, which was eccentric (and left poor ilhanderout of all the exciting bits). I blame tirinian, as is traditional whenever the party goes in a direction we don't expect.

Sunday was Patience. Now, I admit that Gilbert and Sullivan often irritates me a bit just because the characters are so inane. Setting them in a high school magically made that all okay. Sure, they're inane. They snub and mock the old/fat girl, they pair up as arbitrarily as if they've been eating those flowers from Midsummer Night's Dream - but high school was like that! We even kind of had the popular goth boy I had a crush on, though I don't think he got the cheerleaders.

In more program-obsession, this thing keeps happening where I give Copytech files and they shrink them to put them inside "normal" margins. Which isn't what I want at all, I already have margins, and the one place that I bled out of the margins (for the stripe on the front cover), I wanted it just printed up to the edge as far as they could go. I will have to figure out how to communicate this to them in the future, though "please tell me how much this job will cost" never seems to get communicated, so I might have to try going in person again. There were a few other bugs in the program, but nothing too catastrophic.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

Skipping the Terran fight was totally Mirris' fault. She said "You can send Red to deal with it, right? Ok, then that's less important than the other stuff."

Also, it was unclear (to Sharra, at least) that there was going to need to be a big combat with the Terrans--I thought it was just Dr. Kye wanting to beat up Dr. Crichton again. And, well, there was that requirement that Agent Morden be dragged out of his current location before Akito could touch him...

But "Terrans, but we might not have to fight them" is surely a fairly new reaction. :)

True, true. I think I was just so focused on the total awfulness that Agent Morden can cause that they seemed not so menacing.
