This morning I cleaned the house from top to bottom, flitting between the work and scribbling thoughts in my notebook for the one-shot tabletop game I'm running this weekend. I'm always surprised at how much this sort of life suits me. If only I didn't have to worry about that whole distasteful money issue. Anyone in the market for a housewife? I'm very on top of the chores, I'm an excellent cook, I can keep to a budget, and I won't let my figure go. Just keep me in ballet classes and larp costuming and you'll never go off to work without a thoughtfully packed lunch ever again.

The game I'm running is for Carolyn, Ryan, Sam, Aaron, and Gigi, most of whom are new to gaming and would like to get a taste of what theatrical roleplaying is like before they play in a real larp. The game is set in Fairfield, in the universe of the Tailor of Riddling Way, and explore many of the same important themes-- family history, class differences, terrible secrets. I'm writing pregen characters and setting it right after the conclusion of the Tailor story. I am evening including some of the original characters. So far I'm feeling pretty good about what I have, and I think it's going to turn out to be a good game. It's meant to be roleplay-heavy and completely mechanics free as an exercise in acting and storytelling. If it goes well, I'd be happy to run it again for anyone who cares to play.

I may have room for a housewife. And between me and the working wife, we should be able to keep you in the manner you are expecting. Please send a list of qualifications and references.

Also, I approve of your way of growing new LARPers in a tabletop vat.

Housewife and trophy wife, if you'll just run and organize all of the household details that bedevil me every month. We can even keep the cleaning people who come in on a regular basis to clean the bathrooms, vacuum, and do the other less-pleasant chores. Just help me dig out, get organized, and then stay ahead of the game, and we'll be great. We might have to rent a storage locker for our combined and ever-growing costuming wardrobe, but I'm OK with that.

That was me. LJ spewed ugly error messages, disconnected my session, and it was not clear that anything had gone anywhere when I tried to post it.

So when can you start? :)
