Lows & Highs: 1/23-1/29/13

Low: On Monday, my landlord called to tell me that a technician was on site needed to work on cables in the attic of my apartment building. The attic that can only be accessed through the closet of my back bedroom. The back bedroom that is messy and so full of stuff it looks like a hoarder lives there. So they saw my mess before I had a chance to hide or clean it. *sigh*

High: I had the fun of role-playing, playing dress-up, and sleuthing on Friday. My friends Shannon and Brian (my long-time friend the great game player and theatre buddy, not my fiance) hosted their second annual murder mystery party, Murder at Deadwood Saloon. I will not give away the plot because you may want to try it yourself. I played Minnie Money, an eighteen-year-old Chicago debutante who traveled to Deadwood with her parents and tries to run as wild as her heart pleases. My Brian (this one is the fiance) had a last-minute character change and played Gambler Jack, a professional gambler who came to Deadwood with his wife (Annabelle the Southern belle) for a poker tournament.
