A to Z Challenge

Oh man did I fall behind fast! Thanks to everyone that post kind words about finishing the Challenge. My youngest has her first communion this week so our weekends have been pretty full. Sorry about that so this post it going to be short and to the point to catch me up.


Not many books have changed my life like Shadowrun has. The Shadowrun world is cross-genre, incorporating elements of both cyberpunk and urban fantasy. Unlike in a pure cyberpunk game, in the Shadowrun world, magic exists and has "worked" since 2011. Among other things, this split humankind into subtypes, also known as meta types/metahumans. Some of these meta types take the form of common fantasy races. Likewise, some animals have turned into familiar monsters of past fantasy and lore and both monsters and human magicians have regained magical powers. By the second half of the 21st century, in the time the game is set, these events are accepted as commonplace. Man, machine and magic exist in a world where the amazing is among the most common and technology has entered into every facet of human (and metahuman) life. I started this in 1989 and still love to read them today. I'm not sure about anything new but I'm always looking for the books that I missed.


Why oh why do they not make the cool candy anymore? These bad boys rocked and I'm not a candy eater.  Does anybody else remember these?



Who could ever forget the first time they played Uno? My childhood was filled with raining days and card games.  It is also a game still played in this house to this day.


At 14, this show blew me away! It's too bad that it does not hold up well by today's standards. But the thought of Aliens coming to earth as a teen rocked. Sure there were plenty Sci-Fi Aliens back in the day but this one stuck with me. I think mainly for the simple fact that the whole family sat and watched this mini-series.

Ok now to sit down and write about W.


  1. I still play Uno occasionally too -- the great games never lose their fun potential!
