Talking on the phone with magid last night, she suggested the idea of a live-action game of Strange Synergy (I made a felt board for it yesterday, to replace the paper board with huge creases), something more akin to human chess than to LARPing. We started talking about it a bit, and I think it might be a really fun thing to do with a group of people, maybe even at Arisia. I could come up with a fun way of representing the different powers, effects, and so on. I may have to get started on this right away while I still have the excitement for the project. Anyone interested in helping me?
I talked to the police today. They have a suspect, but he claims that the GPS belongs to his girlfriend. Luckily, I still have the box, which has the serial number. This will allow the cop to take it from evidence tomorrow (the evidence guy isn't around on Sundays, I guess) and turn it on and then check to make sure the addresses on it match those that I gave him. And then we'll "go from there," whatever that means. No clue if I'll have to be any more involved in it (give a statement or something), but at least I know I'll be getting my GPS back. Also, there's no small amount of satisfaction in knowing that this person was caught breaking into my car. I hope he was behind this rash of thefts and that they will now stop.
