I haven’t posted for a while, as I have been submerged in game-making.
Sadly, Mood Machine died in the transition to a new format and will have to be restarted, but Best Adventure Ever is going extremely well and I have somewhat higher hopes for it than previously.
In the meantime, the Furniture is slightly delayed by lack of funds. The Ina Disguise rebuild has meant that my finances have taken a temporary hit which delays the new objects by a month or three.
Long term, this makes sense, so I am not terribly worried about it, but it is a pain juggling things like this, particularly at this time of year.
I have had a lot of email and comments of late, most of it spam, but I got a particularly interesting message from one of my former friends a week or so ago.
It was in response to my trip to Birmingham to see Wolfe, and detailed my becoming famous and having my former friends killed.
It is nice to know that people who expressed such disbelief in me for so long, and who expressed absolute hatred for Wolfe, have such faith in us, however life doesn’t actually work like that.
For one thing, Wolfe and I are not friends. We could possibly count ourselves as acquaintances now, but I am not sure he would even give me that slot. All that happened was that I made absolutely sure that he understood my perspective, as I was previously sure he did not get the correct message at all, either from me or anyone else.
For another, I have an awful lot of work to do which depended on his 1)understanding what I am playing at and 2) my actually completing the work. We are none too keen on direct communication as a result of DRIVING EACH OTHER COMPLETELY INSANE WITHIN SECONDS. Yes, I am too fond of him and very interested in developing his rhetoric. No, I am not stark raving bonkers and have no intention of becoming so.
So, no, all that we have established is that I am not his enemy and he knows who I am. I have no plans to kill anyone and have no clue where this idea even came from? Why would that even be on my task list?
Whomever you are, and I have TWO suspects in mind, both with similar history:
Yes, you were a bit shitty to me, but it doesn’t have much effect on me because I have a lot of other stuff going on.
Yes, you delayed my getting on with the things I was doing prior to my developing Ina Disguise, (as a result of one of Wolfe’s many gags at my expense) but frankly it was a good thing, because Ina was necessary to protect my work from my family, and the experimental stuff I have done since the Wolfe episode has been a bit whackier and more interesting.
Since I am preparing to hit on the foreign secretary in the next few months, I am unlikely to retain much in the way of privacy at a fairly senior level, so I am not plotting taking out any hits on anyone.
Hope that makes things clearer!
