Halloween is Friday!

Tuesday, October 28th, 2003 | LiveJournal Archives | 2 Comments

So Halloween is Friday. I feel like I haven’t deditcated myself to it as much I usually do. I love Halloween, it’s my favorite holliday, but with all the crazy shit going on these days, I’ve almost completely overlooked it. We got the makin’s for my costume last night and I plan to make it tonight. Tomorrow night, after work, I intend to get a pumpkin or two and do some carving. HeatherEJCHeather says she’s not going to carve this year. She never seems to really enjoy it anyway. She likes the result plenty, but the carving just doesn’t seem to do anything for her. Maybe I’ll carve a cat just for her. 😉

I’ve been wanting to paint minis all week but I just haven’t been able to get around to it. Something keeps coming up. Last night we didn’t get home ’til late because I was at a meeting that ran really late. By the time I got home, the last thing I wanted to do was sit down and concentrate that closely on painting. It doesn’t help that the dining room table is still in the kitchen covered with stuff while Heather refinishes the dining room floor. I’m happy she’s doing it, but it’s kind of become a convenient excuse not to paint.


I hate having to enforce rules and policies in the lab that people have no idea about and goes against their very beliefs. People have these ideas of things they’re supposed to be allowed to do, but sometimes, those ideas are not in line with our policies.


Okay, that’s it, I either want to be given the website and all it’s rights and priveleges, honor and respect; or be told never to touch it again. I’m tired of this lame, half ass shit.

We were watching I Love the 80’s: Strikes Back the other day and HeatherEJCHeather made an astute observation: the stuff they’re showing on this second series is the stuff that she and I are more familiar with and strikes closer to our memories. Apparently, we liked all the stuff that was secondary in the 80’s. Oh well, I was 7-17 in the 80’s, I guess I would like the more afterthough type shit then. Not to say I’m on top of the style curve now even.

I have this inexplicable need to be useful to people in the world, I think that’s why I make stuff like this and these and put them out on the internet for the world to see. I want to think that something I do with my time is worth something to someone. My web site is full of that kind of crap, stuff I think someone else will want or need sometime. I’m not really trying to advertise myself or entertain the world, I just want to make something that someone somewhere will say “wow, I was hoping someone would make this!”

Okay, so that was my self promotion statement I guess.

A song came on my media player earlier that totally made me miss running my vampire game. I had this NPC in my game that new everyone and everything about the city and he walked around town with a huge 80’s style boombox. The idea was vaguely stolen from the video for said song, in which an anthropromorphized dog walks around on crutches trying to carry his boombox, groceries, and whatever else he’s picking up on his errands. I just liked the idea of this guy that knew everyone and walked around town all night. Everywhere he went, someone knew him and he could have a conversation at the drop of a hat, the whole time of course, carry this boombox that’s blaring and almost making conversation difficult. So whenever I ran, I would make sure that somewhere in the CD changer was at least one CD that had that one song on it. If and when that song played, no matter what, the NPC made a random, unexpected visit. Sometimes it was as bit of a stretch, but it was still bad ass. Now whenever I hear that song, I think of that NPC and my game. YEEUH.

Shit. I want to do this D&D game, but I really do prefer modern games. Doesn’t matter too much, I don’t know when I would run, who would play, or when I would have time to do the game justice.

  • Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed in the things that you didn’t do than in the ones you did do.

I Should Write More

Thursday, March 27th, 2003 | LiveJournal Archives | No Comments

I really should write more. It’s the only way others would feel obligated to write, isn’t it? Not a lot has been going on, but then again, maybe that’s just because of my perspective.

Well, I picked up the d20 Modern book yesterday. I had looked at it at the store and mused about it a long time. taloncomicsDerek is supposed to be starting a game for d20 Modern that I’m very excited to play (it was originally going to be Spycraft, but he prefered d20 Modern, I tend to agree now). I don’t know exactly what the set up is going to be, I know Derek used to be planning a game based on the town where we live, but he used that for a different group, so there’s no telling what this new game is going to be based around. I know he toyed around with a Dallas game, but I don’t know what he decided on. I hope I hear from him so I can get started on a character!

Well, Summer is chugging along, and in no time it will be fall again, and time for all the students to come flooding back to school. I don’t know if this summer is going by quickly or not, but sometimes it seems it is, and others it seems like we’ve only just begun.

Winter Fantasy РFrom my Old Cli̩ Journals

2002-1/23 Winter Fantasy

Day 1:
The week leading up to this trip was a horrible one. A fight with Heather, a depressing trip to Best Buy, a medicore Gaming session with a new character, a frustrating day at work, a very difficult time at packing and finally a late night trying to put music on the Clie, that resulted in no luck what-so-ever. I only hope that the first two days of the week do not represent the week itself. I’ve been looking forward to this trip for a couple of months now and hope that it is at least as good as it was last year.

LiveJournal Archive – 08/28/2001

Well, here I am in the lab again…

This time there’s really nothing bad about it. One of my students changed their schedule which usually annoys me but this time it’s amazing, he changed his schedule and solved about five other scheduling problems. I realized it this morning in the shower and about dropped the soap. Fortune has decided to smile down upon me.

(you know, it’s like some people don’t want your help even when they desperately need it)

LiveJournal Archive – 08/15/2001

Wednesday, August 15th, 2001 | LiveJournal Archives | No Comments

Today’s been a pretty good day so far. I don’t feel as old as I thought I would. Actually, I guess I don’t really feel as old as I have the last few days.

I was hoping my new parts for my computer would have come in last night. I’m upgrading my CPU (and MotherBoard) and adding some RAM (another 512MB). But they’ll probably come in tonight because I don’t have time to put it all together. I’m looking forward to Ben’s game tonight, but it’s going to be wierd playing it at Craig’s. I’m so used to playing FS at my place, I really enjoy it. Plus, heather likes it when people come over, even when it’s just to play games she doesn’t care anything about.
