The book comes out tomorrow. Aaa! Aaaaaaaa! AAA!
So here are some things that I do to distract myself from the fact that the book is coming. But first, appearance reminders, because someone will inevitably be upset they missed it.
Kid 2: Fernando and I are doing another photoshoot for the magazine. This one will be beach themed.
Me, imagining the shoot: Are you going to be eaten by a shark? I mean is it a water monster type of…
Kid 2, sighing: It’s a cute bathing suit shoot.
Me, slightly disappointed: No monsters?
Clearly my priorities are skewed.
conversations with husband, deep nature of
Me: So I can either have Frost Palladin, Tidalist, Magic Archer, and Crystalline Cleric party build with heavy concentration on water and freezing or Juggernaut, Eternal Warrior, Ranger and Elementalist. (Link to the Party and Character Guides for Divinity Original Sin II.)
Gordon, thinking: The advantage of the first would be consistency, since they would all do the same damage but are you trading versatility for it?
Gordon: Frost paladin is a fun build, though.
Me: It makes sense because really you kind of have to pick one, the Water/ Lightning or Fire/Earth combo. There is no point in setting everything on fire only to rain on it later.
Gordon: So go with the first one.
Me: But I want to use Ifan ben-Mezd as the ranged.
Me: Well, he has a wolf. He summons him. It’s his special pet.
Gordon: I am still not understanding.
Me: If I play the first party, Ifan would be a Magic Archer, because if everything is frozen, and he would never get to summon the wolf, because there is no point in summoning the wolf, since he would just keep falling on the ice, so I am wondering if that’s unfair…

Me: Look, I bought all this washi tape, and the two storage boxes, one to store the washi tape, and the other to store pens and markers, and I bought stencils, and these cute anime stickers, one pack for you and one for me, and look, this journal already has cute watercolor drawings in it. I am going to use it to track my food, and then I will hate it, but at first it will be super adorable, because I can use the stencil to make really cute frames in it…
Kid 1, getting up and giving me a hug: It will be fine, Mom. The book is good, it will do well, and it will be fine. I love you.
