OOC: Didn't Go

So the day of what would've been my first session of LARP didnt' happen.The people in charge never got back to me with the address, and the weather was way too hot (38C/100F) for leaving the house. Since my car takes forever to cool down, I would've been borderline heat-sick by the time I'd arrived, which would've made me super cranky and bitchy, and would've colored other people's opinions of me.

So I'll just go to the July sessions, and the first one I go to, I'll either go to Lizz's, and carpool with her, or I'll go to her place and follow in Percy-car. Either way, I'll get the address for the LARP, and I'll be able to find my way on my own the following sessions.

OOC: Thoughts on the upcoming session

So my first official LARP session is in five days... I'm kind of nervous, for a couple reasons. First is that Lizz won't be there, so I'll be even more awkward than I normally am in an offline social situation, second is that I'm scrambling to get parts of my costume together, third is that I don't know where the heck to go (I'm horrible at finding my way and am usually guaranteed to get lost at least once), fourth is that I'm going to need snacks to keep from getting sick and I'm not sure how to work that into gameplay, or whether there will be stuff available for OOC moments...

OOC: Thoughts So Far

Okay, so yesterday evening, Lizz (my friend who asked me to play) and I made a character sheet for Lily.

I kind of have a mental image of how my batshit insane, craft-obsessed vampire is going to look, but I need to get a few things finished, and I need to find or buy a new pair of glasses. If I get a pair of generic readers, I'll have to knock the lenses out of the frame. same if I get cheap sunglasses, because I don't have an up-to-date prescription, and the only pair of reading glasses I have are unwearable because of missing pieces and because the lenses are so out of date for my eyes.

I've got about a month to write Lily's background story, and to find out where the first session is going to be, so wish me luck. :)
