The 13th Annual Z'wad Gaming convention and New Year's Party, night 1

The night went well, so to speak. I've now ingested enough Mountain Dew to send me into a wildly spiralling migraine headache...and it hasn't hit yet. This frightens me. I'm blurry-eyed and I haven't found my brush yet, so my slightly deranged braid of the morning is going to remain that way for a while.
Nicole was in Indian garb. Apparently she's at circus school in San Francisco, for contortionism and trapeze. She amused us all with a demonstration of the former, which was really rather disturbing. However, I did get to wear her head scarf all night, since she didn't need it. It's heavily adorned with coins, so I jingled. Oodles of fun, to say the least.
We didn't have enough people to run all four sessions at once, so I got Robby in my first session and Z in my third, as Robby got too tired to run a second after just one of his. Doesn't surprise me - Robby's RP style is incredibly draining, and he'd been up since the wee hours of the morning. Hence, I was the only GM of the four who ran all three sessions, and what sessions they were!
B-Movie - "El Fantastico Contra Dracula" - a Mexican professional wrestler scenario involving all the good stuff - werewolves, Aztec mummy robots, vampires, scantily clad bloodthirsty women, and lots of "I piledrive him!" and "I spike him!"....and many, many, many quotes. It was generally agreed from the beginning that the B-movie session, set in Mexico, was dubbed over (and, optionally, subtitled in Spanish). This engendered several quotes in itself. Robby has my set from the first session. The following are compiled from second and third-session notes.

They're watching Dirty Harry.
"He's climbing a fence with two broken ribs?" - "Yeah. Very carefully."
B: "This movie is all about bad lighting..."
Z: Wow, we just panned across darkness. I'm so impressed.

Thoughts

Cutscene from the Lord of the Rings - credits as posted in the Livejournal cut. It's the Ringwraith conference.

Mark reminded me about the Stealthware (TM). Picked up some cheap glass tableware for the Christmas Dinner Party last Friday. Washed it in the dishwasher. And it came out very clear. So clear, in fact, that when one was looking down at the table, it was difficult to see the glassware. People didn't believe me. They still don't. But everyone came over and looked at the Stealth Glassware. And it was really scary. It looked like the table was set with forks, knives, spoons, napkins, and nothing else.
I love the Stealthware.
