Happy Birthday, Julie!

In case you don't know who Julie is, she's my little sister and today is the 4th anniversary of her 29th birthday. (You figure it out.) I don't have any idea if she's one of those people that don't like to talk about her age, I think it's weird when people are sensitive about their age. It's a fact of life that you age, everyone does it, so there's no reason to be embarrassed by your age. I dunno, it's just a thing for me. Anyway, happy birthday to my little sister!

I ran the fourth session of the World's Largest Dungeon. It went well. It amazes me how few encounters the thing has. I had to throw some bad guys at them just so the players didn't fall asleep at the table. Design-wise I understand that they didn't want to throw so many encounters at the players that they'd die, but the type and rate of encounters so far have been laughable. Seth and I are going to have to coordinate some more reasonable random encounters for the players.

Work. *Sigh* Work has been . . . interesting. Not because work has been hard, but because everyone in my deparment is seriously overworked, physically and mentally exhausted -- and all that adds up to very, very low morale. As soon as I can I'm going to have to try to do something to fix that. They all do great work and I want them to be excited and motivated, not burned out. Must come up with some ideas to help them.

I received my sample copies of Foes of Freedom today. Woohoo!

To improve morale, perhaps you could try one of the following:
- Beatings
- Wild boar hunt
- Competitive dumpster diving
- Special bonus mandatory overtime
- Comptetitive mandatory overtime beating wild boars hunting dumpster divers

Okay, maybe something else would be more appropriate... I'm sure you'll come up with something reasonable.

Nothing boosts morale like a weekend office trip to Vegas.

I agree!

Who's with me?

I'm not in your department, but if you would have me along, I'm up for it! :)
