My son and I went to our first LARP yesterday and while we only got to share the experience for about six hours, it was a great time. Ry was looking forward to LARPing all week but he was also fighting a cold. Before we left he was hacking and coughing but swore he was okay. At eleven thirty after a skirmish with goblins who are fervent disciples of their King he was coughing so hard he couldn’t breathe and I decided it was time to call it a night.
For all the goblins out there…”All Hail King Torg!!!”.
A huge thanks to Jess & all the people at Exile for making complete noobs feel welcomed in their village of Brightwater and showing us the ropes. There were a ton of very friendly people and everyone took the time to talk to us and make sure we were having fun.
If you live in South Jersey or are willing to drive, it is worth the trip.
This Saturday’s movie is Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore’s Blended. This is the perfect date night movie. It deals with real world problems in a funny and yet sincere way. I don’t know why this movie got panned by the critics, it was well made, made me laugh consistently, and was very enjoyable.
Sandler and Barrymore have instant chemistry. So much so that I actually wonder how their significant others don’t worry about them being in another romantic comedy together!
And as awesome as Sandler and Barrymore are, the girls who play Sandler’s daughters do a damn fine job of stealing the show. His youngest is funny and cute and has several scenes that kept me laughing or made me wish my kids were little and sweet again.
And his oldest daughter plays her part with equal skill. You are routing for her to become the pretty butterfly and are happy for her when it finally happens.
