“You will never understand a nation’s psyche by inventorying its interests. You have to grasp its memories, its paranoias, its traumas, and its irrationalities—its history, in other words.” — Adam Gopnik on the Scottish independence referendum and the Auld Alliance. (via newyorker)

My Starter Set arrived today!
I rolled my first d20, it was a 16. Not bad.

Have I told you how in the last two months I got obsessed with the concept of playing Dungeons and Dragons? And with dice? And that I even made a blog ^?It was only later that I finally purchased anything related (because for me, the more conceptual and inapplicable to my life the better), but today I had carefully planned a 2.5 hrs trip to a gaming store to participate in my first game. Well, 1.6 hrs in and my car broke in the middle of the highway. Predictably, I may add, as I was basically rehearsing in my mind while driving how I was gonna tell people about my horrible anticlimactic day full of tow trucks, sweat and nothingness. I know my life’s writing staff.On the bright side, I got to waste 20$ on gas.
