Meetup blahs

Today was another boardgame meetup and Lori wasn't able to make it this time around. Surprisingly, she didn't appoint a mini-lori to run things so people sort of muddled through it. It was a small crowd this time around and there wasn't much to the get-together. Michael once again brought powergrid and actually dragooned another group of people into giving it a whirl. This time around though he also roped in Sue Ellen into the mix, which I'm sure was quite hilarious. I, of course, would have sooner walked on broken glass than joined in there.

The only interesting thing of note was that one of the semi-new people there sorta managed to rub me the wrong way somehow. I'm sure it's party due to my running insomnia and exhaustion but over the course of discussing why in my opinion those wankers at Looney Labs suck, I proclaimed that anyone who liked their games was a decerebrated ass-monkey. At the time he was promoting Fluxx of course. I'm not even sure what sparked it exactly since he was infinitely less annoying than some of the other wankers I've run into at meetup and god knows I haven't called them morons (to their face). I think it was just one of those collision of random factors. Hopefully I'll get a good night's sleep tonight and things will go more smoothly tommorrow.

Noooooo!

You rat bastards. This is the last season of SG-1 and you had to go and kill Col. Emerson? Why? Just let the guy live and collect a paycheck till the end of the season. It's probaly going to be a long stretch on unemployment for him after that. Besides, I liked him. It's starting to be that commanding one of the Earth Prometheus class ships is like being a redshirt on the original star trek series. There have only been 4 ships and 3 of the captains have now been killed and the last one was taken over my a Gould for a while. It's starting to become one of those promotions you don't want.

With termination looming, I only hope that they can still twist the plot episodes around to give us a nice ending to the series without having all sorts of implausabilties. As it stands though, it seems hard to imagine any ending where Earth wins as anything other than Deus Ex Machina. After all, there aren't many story resources left. There's only one major ship left, the Dedalus (Okay, it looks like the Odyssey has survived too), and that spends have its time making the jump to Pegasus and back. The Jaffa are all fucked up and scrambled and the Ancients are still playing their non-interference game. The only way for SG-1 to win against the Ori is if they find God in Merlin's secret vault and He decides to throw down some Old Testament Fire and Brimstone down on the Ori. Thou Shalt Have No God Before Me, Bitch. WHOOOOSH. ::Ori Galaxy in Flames::
