At happy hour yesterday, ███ confirmed my feelings about the previous night's game and the other players' deference to the two experienced guys who also DM games. I feel relieved to know it wasn't just me being snitty.
Got a few books in the mail yesterday, mostly manga. I guess I'll say something about them when I get to reading them. Started the latest Mobile Suit Gundam: Thunderbolt this morning.
Further considering just making my own application to do all this, starting with a static site generator that will do what I want without too much complication.
