I went over to Charmco after work to play AD&D with Eric today. His dad owns the place, he works there, it's right by downtown Painesville (Actually, it's more between Painesville and Fairport, but close enough), and most importantly, there's a pizza place nearby.

It's just the two of us playing, which is kinda tough on me, since tonight was my second session ever. My party consists of me, and a pair of NPCs played by Eric. One of them's a minotaur who doesn't speak Common, and the other is an elven wizardess loosely based on a character that Eric plays on a MUD we both frequent. She spends most of her time laughing at my ineptitude.

I like D&D, but it can be a bit frustrating at times. I spent an hour today arguing with a stupid blue goblin shaman about a magic ring that he claims his god gave to him. Argh!.

Also on the list of nifty things I did today, I upgraded to the latest version of Perl. Whee!.
