Good weekend

I got to play in several RPGs this weekend at strategicon, I even had time to play a couple of board games as well.

One of the odd things is one of the days at the con, not only was I uncharacteristically wearing a skirt, I received multiple compliments for my outfit. Yay! I managed to assemble something aesthetically appealing.

Another thing is that I find it a bit disturbing when someone walks up and starts talking to me and show that they know me and I have no clue who they are. I don't feel like I'm that good at recognizing people as they age. Or alternatively I'm ageless and am rather easy to recognize.

Today I also visited alejandromagno and saw a funky movie what the bleep which interwove commentary from several mystics and scientists with a mystical bent about what is real and who are we in a narrative about a woman's somewhat confusing day.

I seem to be more willing to let mystics and philosophers make claims about our minds than the physical world. For example one of the popular things about watered down quantum physics is the idea of how the observer is important. Those with a somewhat mystical bent like to view this as a way of making consciousness and thought supreme in the universe. Unfortunately the recent offhanded explanation about how hard it is to get quantum computing to work seems to suggest that the observer can be just other nearby molecules.

So I'm not willing to give them the idea of how I think influences probability or the physical world around me, but I am willing to agree that my view of myself and my connections to others does create the framework for how I experience the world.

Shockingly it did.

I even thought, maybe I could wear skirts or dresses more often (at least after the confidence boost from my corset.)

See, I've said it once (or twice, or several hundred times, but I don't care), and I'll say it again - you are HOT. SOOOOOOOO cute! You looked soooooooo faboo in your skirt, honey. Beyond fab, actually.

And you have a cute tummy. I'm just saying. :-)

I am SO VERY GLAD we got to hang out, my dear. Not every day one gets to snuggle with a very huggable, very cute, very sweet Moon Goddess, ya know. Yay for warm hugs and snuggles!

The movie was odd. But that's okay. I rather liked it. And I enjoyed the frappucino mix of philosophy, quantum, spirituality, and quirkiness. Gave me some food for thought, and even if all the science was "hokey," which I don't think it was, at least not ALL of it, it still gave good food for thought, I thought.

By the way, you have really pretty hair. heehee :-)

By the way, something else I've said before...

If you weren't a lesbian, honey, I would so ask you to marry me. Yay. :-)
