Two Parter

I've been meaning to post this for a while now. I'm 8 days late but better late than never.

Christmas CARD Swap action.

If you LIKE getting cards, or like GIVING cards email your info to
and I will add you to my christmas card list as well as send an email back with my own snail mail addy.

sooner you send the info higher chances you have of getting yoru card in time to make your mantle look like people love you. *(my own dastardly plot)*

second part, the sad news.
My Grandmother passed away last night. It wasn't sudden, she's been suffering from alzheimers for a while now. she nearly broke the record for the longest survivor but she's simply tied it. Go gram.
I've never spoken much about my Grandmother but she was very important to me and the very very least I could do is mention it here.
Silly maybe but, then again I'm "Lord of the Absurd" what did you expect? something classy?
not my style.

Farewell Gram.
I love you.

Your result for The Ultimate TRUE IRISH Test...

Finn MacCool

I am honored to be in your presence. You know your stuff. You are Irish in your heart. You probably talk like an Irish person after a few pints. You sing the rebel songs. You drink, and probably bleed Guinness. You may have even been interned in British Prisions. You impress (or annoy) all your friends with your vast Irish knowledge. If you are a female, I am in love. If you are a male, we are brothers. We should have a pint.

Please don't forget to rate my test...

In Touch

People always say these things during transative periods. The one that keeps comming back into mind is "Stay in touch" or "Let's keep in touch".
Touch? Really?

People don't, as a rule, Touch. Lovers do, family perhaps, but most americans have this impenetrable bubble of personal space that defies any one from entering within to make physical contact. This is double so with men.
Men, they give the arm punch, or the brief shoulder patr from as far from each other as they phyiscally can be. People scrunch in on themselves on the subway so they don't brush against the stranger next to them.

It occurs to me that I've never been in physical contact with my boss. I've touched his son in the way of high fives, bumped fists, pats on the back but yet my employer of four years, not once. Not even a hand shake. That's wierd I think. I've shaken HIS bosses hand more than I've shaken his.

In a non literal sence, keeping in touch, is still rather difficult isn't it?

We put peopel on lists and we initially send them little notes and we try to call them and make sure they know we care but slowly these things happen further and further apart. Then, finally, in the distant future you're trying to remember who this person in your address book is. Why are they in my phone book? Honey do you remember a Bill Jenkins? No? Huh.

If you're on my friends list and haven't been in touch this is a good chance.
Let me know you still remember who I am, or ask me who I am. Let me know who you are, just in case I've forgotten. (I haven't. but you know I do like updates on what's been happening)

Purges from the friends list may follow. Not a threat, just don't want any one to be surprised if they find themselves with one less mutual friend.

I am now in the market for a new job. My old job, while still technically mine, has officially become an endangered species. Any one know of any jobs in the Madison area? Or the Chicagoland area? Either one would work.

Dear Inconsiderate Bitches,

I am aware that there are things that are more important in life than gaming. The list is quite prodigous indeed. I understand things come up and that even though you SAY you'll be some where that you can't make it.
BUT, when you ask to specifically schedual the game for an obscenely unusual hour to fit your own schedual I expect you to be able to make it. When you inconvenience me to the point of me having to rearrange my sleep schedual to accomidate your request, then when I drive over and am made to wait several hours, and THEN end up not running any thing recieving NO appology or any sort of thanks on my part for trying it makes me feel unappreciated.
It makes me not want to run games at all. Why would I run for you guys if you don't show up and don't appreciate me when you do show up? A call to let me know you can't make it would have prevented all the hurt feelings and all the bull shit. Can't you get to a phone? Can't you even be THAT considerate?
I think we know the answer to that.
If you're reading this and think it applies to you and haven't appologized to me yet, don't bother.

Aggrivated DM

When you answer your friends phone and it's a mutual friend you don't actlike a dick to him. I don't care if you are drunk, that isn't cool. Especially if I'm calling to see if our friend is all right because he's an hour and a half late for something he SAID he'd be at. Hence the worrying. Then getting some bullshit sort of answer, that's really awesome.

So I bought the spore creature creator the day before spore came out because I wasn't paying attention to release dates and the like but that didn't sour me on the game itself. Spore is a VERY fun game from Maxis.
I've been fiddling with it and have evolved my race from single cell organisms to a mighty race of intergalactic pigmy warthogs. Who spit acid.
Fun game.
