Long goddamn overdue Friday picture thread (01/27/06)

I love this. It does however be-speak an inordinate amount of free time.

This photo makes me smile for no easily articulable reason.

This picture actually makes me a little twitchy. Although, if I run another horror game, there will definitely be Toddlerpedes running about.

"Dude, Is this the left? Crap! I knew we should've gotten TomTom."

There are good and proper reasons why I won't let the cat near the car.

Wow. This takes me back...

It's only funny because it's true.

How i'm feeling these days.

Another update of sorts

"Proof Positive that Lamarkian Biology is junk science. My right hand does not self lubricate."
-Best quote i've heard this week.

Hi ho all. Things have taken a creative turn this week. Came into a small bump of cash and went out and sloved my printer problem. Also acquired additional memory for my Palm and now I have NWOD MET loaded on it right now. 1 step closer to my goal of not having to overpack for another con again. I expect that i will also acquire my Origins membership tonight as well.

In the midst of my acquisitive behavior. i also purchased ILife 0 for my Mac. The main reason for this was to get the brand spanking new IWeb software which i hope will replace the Claris Homepage that i've been using for my old and busted webpages. Pursuant to that, be on the lookout for something of a redesign in that quarter.

Some friends of mine are also in the process of talking about a business model for a PDF based webcompany specializing in roleplaying games.

I have this idea for a larp that is roiling around my backbrain and won't leave me alone. I may have to write it and run it at Origins. It feels like a cantaloupe sized ball slowly working it's way up my spine. Poking it has not helped.

More dispatches from the front as time permits.

Hello again my freaky darlings...

So. My G5 had it's guts ripped out and then put back in. thankfully, they didn't have to actualy have to touch the hard drive. So not only do i not have to spend the next couple of weeks putting all the data back in the right place, but i also got my money back that they charged me for clearing the hard drive and re-burning my data back to the drive.

Also: Yay!

This has been kind of a time for ups and downs. Had some major problems while on the road at work that frayed my nerves more than a little bit. Had some incredible dice luck at the Demon the Fallen game that I play. But ended up paying for that last night at the Vampire: the Requiem game. Had one of those night where my dice mojo deserted me completely. Those things happen on occasion.

Got myself cast in a production of "The Importance of Being Earnest" at Actor Guild of Lexington. This means many things:
1) Paying gig. Will make enough off the show to handle a number of my expenses for Origins.
2) Short term, it will crab my availability for various games that i dig. Fortunately, most of my fellow gamers round this area realize that Theater is my career and don't give me a lot of shit about it. Also, i let them know in advance when i won't be available so, it's not a huge problem.
3) Will be working with an actress that i have "History" with. Not real happy about that, but it's not crippling either.
4) It's a smallish role, so it's not going to be energy intensive.
5) More fodder for the book i'm working on.
6) Gertrude is gnawing her own liver in jealousy over me being in this show. I larfing!

In other news. I have acquired a Palm Tungsten. It's neat! I am at present working on a way to boil down the absolute necessary stuff from the MET NWOD book so that i could conceivably run a larp out of the silly thing. I'm not so swish with this thing yet that i didn't have trouble at the game last night, but I suspect it will come with time.
The only problem is that i've installed Big Money, Bookworm, and Tetris on it. Massive time wasters all.

Maybe some news and pics later tonight if i'm feeling froggy.

Technical Difficulties, please stand by...

My Imac G5 has crapped out on me. Thankfully, I purchased Applecare for it, otherwise you'd be reading about my upcoming funeral from cutting my wrist while jumping off a building.

Which is crabbing my action somewhat as I have huge wodges of material for news and random pictures, saved up from the last couple of weeks.

Of course, all that stuff is saved up over on the G5.
