So, I've been doing better at this.....

Have you noticed?

It's not like I've really had any more to share or anything, or even that I've finally slowed my schedule down (it still sucks), so I'm not sure why I'm posting again.

Maybe I just decdided to get off my ass....

>looks at self sitting in chair<

Or maybe not.

Maybe I've got wonderful things to share.....

>looks at current post<

Or maybe not.

Maybe, I'm energized with a new zest for life.....

Yeah, prolly not that either.

Oh well, take what you can get.

So, if I know what a person was trying to say, does that make me smarter than them?

I mean, I've talked about the whole then v. than thing, so I'm not gonna drag all that back up, but I mean for real.

I was skimming along, and someone made reference to 'overhearing' a neighboring conversation as being 'ease dropping.'

Yeah, that's right, ease dropping.

I'm not sure how getting tense helps you hear better, but...

Also, this is pretty funny, if you're a fan of Castle, Firefly, or Nathan 'Just Like Million' Fillion.


Also, after playing both Uncharted games, I can say unequivocally say that he would do this job much better than Marky Mark....

I'm just putin it out there...'.

Dont know that I've got much else....

Taste of the town...

So, I'm here to tell you about chocolate....

First, the Tabasco stuff?

Yeah, pretty amazing, and a surprisingly strong kick.  Most 'hot' things sold to the public are, at best, what I consider 'medium' heat.  With the exception of Pace picante sauce.  Their 'hot' salsa is pretty hot.

And I like that.

The Ghiraradelli dark stuff was awesome too.....  Very intense, very earthy.


The other stuff was just milk chocolate, good, but basically the same thing as any other chocolate.

Pretty boring today.

Happy Giant, Egg-Laying Christian Rabbit Day!! (again)

So, once again, a giant mammal has been and gone, and I'll I've got to prove it is a bag of candy....

Well, it's actually from my mom, and she dropped it off yesterday, but you get the idea.  I'm not sure why she still gets/makes me a basket/random container every year, but I love that she does.  It's one of the things I look forward to every year.

Much like socks for Christmas, another 'mom tradition.'

The swag from this year:

If you don't know, Ghirardelli is the best shit ever!!

Edible money, anyone?

Ah, there's the rabbit:

And, of course, something to get my geek on with:

I haven't tried any of the goodies yet (well except for a couple of coins) but I'll be sampling later today.

If the Tabasco and dark chocolate are good enough to warrant another post, I'll be back later to let you know.....otherwise, it'll prolly be tomorrow.

Sarah Connor's answering machine is gargantuan......

Due to my lack of posting lately, it may not be immediately apparent to y'all that I've been offline for a week or so.

If it wasn't for my iPhone, I'm sure I'd have lost my mind without internet, but the little trooper pulled me through.....

Now that I've got that out of the way, I want to tell you what I did last night.

According to the latest timeline/time travel/preventative measures, Judgement Day, as portrayed in the Terminator mythos occurs/occurred on April 21, 2011.

That was yesterday, in case you didn't know. In honor of this, I watched The Terminator. Whenever I watch an older movie, especially one with futuristic overtones, I have a tendency to notice tech stuff.

It prolly stems from the whole geek much/tech whore parts of my make up, but whatever the case, I saw something last night that really hit home:

See that monster box next to her phone? Yeah, that's her fucking answering machine

Kinda puts it all in perspective, doesn't it?

He jests at scars that never felt a wound.

Remember when I told you I was going to post pics from last week's game?

Yeah, well, I decided that they sucked (cause i used my phone) so I shot a better one tonight.

I'm not going to show you that one yet, though.

Not because I'm an asshole or anything, but I want to bring you up to speed first. I know I've told you that I'm builing props (didnt i) to make the game more interesting, but I don't think I've let you know that, as with many things in my life, I've gone a bit overboard.

I showed you the table, or at least the component parts, but I've also made walls and other things as well.

Our game continuted from last week, and as my intrepid adventurers worked their way through the dungeon, it looked something like this:

The dice represent the players (duh) and the number is the marching order. The walls you see are of my own making, and consist of cardboard, and magnets...

As the party made it's careful way along, I could (and did) slide the walls around to make corridors, rooms, and the like. The group met some enemies, did some battle, found some items....

Things were going along well, and then James had to leave. At that point, we convinced N and K to play along. N and K are both girls, just so you know, and K is the SO of one of the other players.

Both of these girls have said that they didn't want to play. We didn't let that stop us tho. I gave them some easy tasks, let them roll some dice....

Well, all I can say is that I now need to roll a couple more characters....

I'm pretty worn out, cause playing God is a lot of work, so I'll leave you now...

I almost posted yesterday...

No, really.


I'm posting today, so I guess that counts for something. It's not like I have ton of witty things to say, or even anything interesting, but I'm trying to be better about this (since ive sucked so bad for so long).

I still haven't really taken the new camera out to play yet, but I hope to soon. Perhaps this weekend.

I may even shoot a short video, just for the novelty of it. I'm not sure it will have the highest production values, but....

Now that I have a new camera, I've decided to send my old one to my daughter, as my son already has a DSLR, and my daughter told me that I prolly 'wouldn't consider it a camera' when I asked what she was shooting with.

I had to order a lens for it, which arrived yesterday, so soon I'll box it up and ship it off to her. She's really excited to get it, and I have to say, it makes me feel good to be able to gift her with it.

I guess that's all for now.

Buenos con queso,

The dice throwing started last night.....

Yes, that's right, I totally got my geek on last night.

I think I mentioned that I was going to start running a D & D game, but in case I didn't, I did.

If you know what I mean.

I have a pic or two, but as I took them with my phone (which died and is now charging) I don't have them to share at the mo. After it gets some juice, I'll email the photo to myself and then post it.

As if you care.

I'm sure none of you have ever thrown dice to see if you decapitated the orc, opened the chest, or triggered the trap.....

The game went well, and I have high hopes for the remainder of the adventure. My intrepid group has found the first level of the dungeon, and have found a couple pieces of the puzzle that is the underlying theme of the game.

Well, my game that is.

In other news, it looks like work might actually be coming through with my new day off schedule. I've gotten told for weeks now that I was going to have Saturday and Sunday off, but so far it hasn't really materialized. I did have this weekend off, and I think I have next one off, but I won't know for sure until I check at work today.

It would be nice to have weekends off, tho it doesn't mean as much as it did when you were a kid in school, and since Sunday Football looks like it may be in jeopardy (the only reason I really wanted sunday off) it'll prolly happen.

Ok, guess I'm through for now.

Buenos con queso,
