Anything interesting happening lately?


Still waiting to hear back about the applications and dreading it.

Have a baby shower to go to this saturday which I'm figure will be pretty blah.

Trying to sell more crap on ebay but the blasted people there refuse to give me more of their money. Selfish bastards.

Still, STILL watching ranma 1/2. I'm up to season 6 at the moment with around 40 more episodes to go, 2 movies, and 12 OVAs.

Treasure tokens are shipping today. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for an ultra-rare.

Everytime I play Civ IV now I can't resist the urge to go into the world builder and create myself a modern tank in like 2400 BC. I then use it to roll over all of the barbarians and others who are pissing me off. Try to attack my city? Ha! There's a tank behind you!

Slap fights on the LJ snopes feed isn't all that interesting but it helps to pass the time.

Still reading pratchett books I just bought. 2 more until I'm completely caught up on everything out in paperback.

I love it when a plan comes together

So it looks like things are going pretty good as far as con planning is going. I've sent out the emails the the PMs and it looks like I've got a Golden Ticket run for TD all set in stone. mock26 and some other people from the TD forums will be joining me for it and I figure we have a pretty good shot at taking the prize. There are supposedly a few good puzzle solvers in the batch and I'm not exactly a slouch either. I'm sure the combat aspect is going to be cheese. With the way we're all likely to be equipped, we'll probaly roll over the enemy without even realizing they're there.

On top of that, I've been trying to put together a normal TD run with forumites and others and it looks like everyone is at least interested. balkin and friend, mock26 and mutual friends, BRP and his crew, and Chelle and her hubby. The schedule hashing is going to be a pain the ass because BRP can only go on saturday night after all of his events are complete. I know for a fact that conflicts with Nascrag, though I'm not sure if I'm going to even bother giving it another whirl this year. Putting together a team is too much of a headache, not to mention russian roulette with who you get stuck with. I would try to slip myself in with an established team but the problem there is I don't really have a good communication mech for something like that. Oh well.

Can someone still on the gencon forums do me a favor? Track down an email address for NZ Knight? I figure I might as well drop him and the rest of last year's nascrag crew a line and see if everyone else is going to go for it.
