Lest I forget, Happy Batman Day. Remember, be what you were born to be, unless you can be Batman. Then, be Batman!!

Fun. It’s been tough to find for the past year. COVID-19 has pilfered fun all around the world. Still, fun, smiles, laughter… all are still needed. In part, I’ve found fun playing board games. Monopoly? No!!! Parcheesi. No!!! There are a multitude of games, new games, wonderful games, that can be played by one or several. One of these games is Horrified.
“The Stakes Have Been Raised. Imagine living in a place so wretched, that its not plagued by one, two, or even three monsters, but seven of the most horrifying fiend. In this game, you’ll come face to face with them all as you work together to rid the town of these maniacal or misunderstood creatures before its too late.”
You’ll battle as one of several heroes, facing Universal Studios’ classic movie monsters: Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster and the monster’s bride, the Invisible Man, the Mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Wolfman. Which one scares you the most? Defeat the monsters and save the village.
“In this game, you’ll work together to rid the town of the maniacal or misunderstood creatures…before it’s too late.”
It’s great fun to play by yourself or with others. And, it’s priced right. Give it a try.
I guess this a beginning of sorts. As 2020 neared its end I lost interest in blogging, an activity that once was a part of my everyday, posting, for the most part, original poetry ( I am a poet, having published to volumes of poetry. You can even buy them in books stores and on Amazon, but that became…old. I haven’t posted since December 8, 2020,)
Two years ago, I was asked to write a screenplay, and I did, and it looked like it was to become a movie…BUT THEN COVID. Yup, the virus shut down the movie industry and stalled the progress I was making toward the silver screen. Perhaps 2021 will be kinder. I’m currently crafting a second screenplay now. I’ll let you know
During the lockdown(s), I began to turn to other interest, original interests, childhood interests: comic books, adventure, games, etc. I’m 52, but at my core I’m 12. I’m still a kid and I enjoy all the “stuff” I enjoyed as a kid: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, comic books, superheroes, games, adventure, stories, etc. Therefore, today, I’ll begin again. I’ll begin where I started, in a galaxy, far, far away, where spaceships and wizards exist, and childhood never ends. Where will that take me? I’m not sure. But therein beats the adventure.
Nope. I’m not sure. What to do about this blog? Hmmmmm.
I once posted poetry, lots of poetry. I am a poet. But that got old. Still, I want to create. I gotta create.
Time to figure things out. Promise, I’ll do my best!
Eat like a Hutt.
This is best to play outside, in the woods, with some trolls. Time to open it up. I’m going on an adventure.
“Crebain were a species of large black, crow-like birds native to both Dunland and Fangorn Forest in Middle-earth, that Saruman the White in Isengard used as spies after he joined forces with Sauron.”
In Middle Earth, these two hobbits share a birthday, September 22.
Lift a glass and give three cheers.
I’m a happy nerd. 🎂
