D&D with Iz

Posted in Uncategorized by expatatlarge on August 31, 2010

People were saying how hot the multiple Izzies looks in the video I put up the other day.

Just want to point out that when she was my flatmate it was rarely so exciting. Music was either the Bach Brandeburg concertos or Oscar Peterson’s Night Train. Or Powderfinger (Odyssey Number 5 got her depressed) or Snow Patrol.

A few times, MercerMachine, who writes fantasy novels and stories, and Indy who is a total role-playing geek, convinced us to play Dungeons & Dragons! I swear to god, adults playing this game in MY dining room! Blogger Jessica from Canyon In the Crack Between The Braincells would join as well… I must admit I had fun for a while there, but we haven’t played recently.

I just wanted to show that Izzy wasn’t always dressed to seduce and outrage. At least not so much when I was home form my many travels. Here’s a photo of her (bottom right, du’h) from one of our games, surrounded by geeks with nothing better to do…

She’s getting a bit more excitement in Holland I guess!

    LOL @ the statue behind! Our wallflower extra?

    I found Izzy rather down to earth and real compared to her dazzling public image. It was certainly very fun being the two girls of our adventuring party. That's my 2 cents. 🙂

    Phil, good work pixelating the face on the China statue!

    I just clicked that link to Jessica's blog, where do you meet all these cute women?

    Jes: she is just a girl, always at ease, a great flatmate – not counting the Infamous Red-Wine-On-Carpet Incident… Absolutely not conceited or self-conscious.

    Scott: re; statue. You guys picked that? I didn't want anyone to recognize that fact that a baseball cap was on his head.

    we *could* play again….

    Good for Izzy. Started 'The Slap' BTW. May not get past the first chapter. It's a good idea but the writing is sophomoric

    MM: we *could* and *you* are welcome to.

    Dick: As I am constantly afraid anything I write *seriously* would be… Really don't want to sound smart-arse and pretentious, but hey, that's my style.

    sophomoric? soporific? same thing?

    Maybe sophomoric is a bit unfair but it does read like a teenager's diary at points. Perhaps that's the voice Tsiolkas was after. Let's just say the style is raw and unpretentious i.e popular. No long words and no poncey literary stuff.
