Sounds like a hoot! Looking forward to your upcoming trip to Hogtown!

That's on the bounce again.  I have to go there, but my schedule is in flux.  I now have to go to Portland again in December, Germany again in January, and Houston for half of February.  Then I have Hamilton AND Toronto (Pickering, to be exact), and Boston that will be jammed in there somewhere.

Holy shit, Pickering? I'm living in Toronto right now. I should see about paying you a visit when you're in town, if you don't mind. When do you have it planned?

Not sure yet.  I have business there sometime after the new year, and I'm related to damn near everyone in the province, so I expect I'll burn some vacation time.

Ok. Well, keep me filled in. It'd be fun to hang out with a Holy Man™.

More fun than you really wanted. I should know.

Couldn't sleep for three weeks after he left Boston. 'Twas the giant spiderclowns, is what it was.

Wasn't my fault.  I blame EoC for 1) his TEETH, and 2) for being shorter than he really is.

I'm comfortable with this. My TEETH can absorb your feelings.   :)

True fact: I started employing the 'Christ what an asshole' meme to one of my coworkers, in response to most things he said. One month later he goes on vacation. He calls out sick the week after. He shows up for 45 minutes the following Monday, leaves early, calls in sick the rest of the week. He goes on vacation, arranges Family Medical Leave Act. I haven't seen him since August. We have begun accepting that he is a cautionary tale we tell our new coworker, who is fully trained and operating, and has simply never met this other person.


"No. I totally get it. You're right, man, and..." *sniff* *minor nose wrinkle*


"Oh, yeah, and" *slight sniff* *two rapid blinks* "anyway, definitely, dude."


I like to humor their ideas, fully engaging them in their bizarre delusions, and then insinuating that they smell bad.


Sounds like a blast.

I request only that the return address be clearly visible for retaliatory mail purposes.  :evil:

You're the one wearing sweatpants and a leather jacket I presume.

He is the white one in the lower left wearing a black collar.


My grandfather (the one who survived cancer twice) died this morning. Blood poisoning. I'm devastated.

Condolences, Waffles.

I attended the wake last night. The undertakers did a good job, but my God, seeing her dead was strange. It was sad. But it was stranger than it was sad. I've gotten over the fact that she died being mad at me and I not being able to resolve it. I found out she was in the hospital because I reached out to her to resolve our issue. If she were still alive and didn't resolve things with me I would have shrugged and gone, "well, I tried." The whole thing was weird. The wake had this sort of, I really am just having a strange dream sort of feel to it, even down to the people there. Even down to the slideshow of pictures. She's been dating her boyfriend for 11 years and there are no pictures of them together. The pictures abruptly end in her early 20s. One of the last ones was my high school graduation. The funeral Mass was said today in New York (her mom insisted on a Latin Mass, and Boston doesn't have any Latin Mass priests anymore). She's being buried tomorrow in her father's grave. I won't be attending. I'm welcome to, but I'm opting not to.

I am sad, but I'm ok. But I'd be lying if I said this wasn't really fucking surreal.

Shit, dude.

Have you considered giving us your impressions, to get the conversation started?

Impressions from what?

Of the game. Because you seem to know more about it and possibly have more knowledge about it than anyone here. You are more likely to be able to get a conversation going if you post a little of your own opinion or some kind of context; for example, how you came to know about this game, what you think of it, and what you are hoping to get from the conversation here. Are you a player looking for other players? Are you thinking about playing it and want to know what others think? Are you the game creator, looking for feedback on the design? All of these things could give some basis for a launching point from which other people can respond, hopefully resulting in a mutually satisfying social interaction.

I am continuously impressed by your ability to explain basic social interaction techniques, but not nearly as much so as I am saddened that it's something you've needed to develop into a skill.

I also find monarchy a mild bowel irritant.

I assume transatlantic shipping is probably a no-go, so can I request changes to EOC's?

EOC, got a list of shit you're allergic to handy? For, erm, safety reasons.

I am horribly allergic to solid gold bricks.
