Drabble: Christmas Lights

The Christmas lights glowed ethereal, calling out to lost spirits in search of a home on the loneliest day at the loneliest hour when you have nowhere else to go. Two such ghosts gathered there, each strangers, each lost. The younger ghost broke the ice first. “Cold night, isn’t it?” “Wouldn’t know. I have no … Continue reading Drabble: Christmas Lights

Onward to Distant Worlds

This past weekend, Diane took me on a (very delayed) anniversary trip to see Final Fantasy Distant Worlds in St Petersburg, Florida. It was fantastic!

GameSpace: Murf on Slay the Spire

Slay the Spire Has Slain My Free Time If you didn't see my previous article on GameSpace reviewing Son of Scoregasm, I don't blame you.

I … Continue reading GameSpace: Murf on Slay the Spire
