I don't know where you suckers were Tuesday night, but I was here:

((stupid blank space))

Okay, if I'm going to copy (aka homage) my previous post of Sept 2007, I should have pictures... but I don't. So I'll let my words paint them for you.

On what would have been pretty close to a one year anniversary with Megadeth girl...

Then sometime it all works out.

Getting there. wink

You're not truly SG until you update your blog every day - sometimes more than once - and never reveal anything personal about yourself or go to the other end of the spectrum and get completely maudlin and over dramatize every situation. So by those parameters neither of us will go far here.

Thank you smile

If there's one thing I write less about online than my relationships, it's follow-ups to events I write about online. That said, context is one entry back.

When I was younger there were a lot of things that made me cranky; like most guys, I guess. As I've gotten older, many of the old passions have faded or been accepted and the...

And I don't believe people still kick my ass for writing too-long entries. whatever

I don't write about my dating life that much. It's a combination of not wanting to sound like every other whiner on the net, but, in reality, I don't really date that much. I don't date because I'm not really a master pick-up artist, and I don't get out enough to meet people the un-pick-up way. Getting older doesn...

The last couple of weeks have piled up and spilled over. I had gotten sick, had some rough patches at work, with a freelance project, my roommate got sick, my car engine died and I'm going to be out 2500 bucks, and various other minor calamities. But, then my best friend and his wife lost their unborn baby, trumping all the other bullshit.

Now...

One of my sisters and her husband had been trying to conceive for several years. They ended up going the very expensive route of a fertility clinic, and yet the prospects still seemed slim (according to all information she passed along to the rest of the family). This past Christmas, she surprised my mother (and really the whole family since it was a rare occasion when we were all gathered) by giving her a box containing an ultrasound picture of twins.

Couple of weeks ago she had to reduce the pregnancy to one. A difficult and horrible decision no matter what -- but given what they'd discovered through testing, it seemed unlikely baby B would have survived after birth anyhow. And carrying it would have caused further undue risk to her and baby A, I guess.

I'm not really sure where I come down on all of these issues. I've long felt that since it wasn't really my business, it certainly wasn't my place to tell anybody else what they ought to be doing. I'm just glad, however selfishly, that the decision wasn't mine to make.

Was my last entry really in October? I'm not usually one of those goddamn slackers that wait 4 months to let you know what kind of boring crap I've been up to.

So, currently Christmas went okay, as did New Years. My birthday featured home-made batter and deep fried corn dogs, on wooden skewers. As with all my birthday dinners, I practiced a...

My knees have been pretty bad. To be accurate, my thighs, then my knees. Something happened with those knee pads (last entry)... too tight. Both thighs have the same pulled muscle or tendon, running down the outside to the side of the knees. My lower sartorius maybe.

I couldn't squat, could barely walk. There were these two indentations at the bottom of my out...

i suppose youre right, but i feel obligated to show up and tolerate my family on thanksgiving. i love most of them, after all. im sure things like that will change when i get older.

oh, and i agree with what you said about FMJ vs. Private Ryan

I feel Cameron did what was logical when he wrote in the Queen. I always felt Scott's method to be a bit overcomplicated and nearly silly. No offense to Ridley Scott, mind you. To simplify things, you have a race of insectoid creatures and a bunch of eggs. The eggs have to come from somewhere. The Predalien method would be logical were Giger to be calling shots, but this is not the case. While I don't view the VS. movies as canon, this one is more of a tribute, and should have followed the "rules" a bit more closely.

This is a rather mundane entry, I'm afraid.

I like to play football, though as the older I get, the harder it becomes. Football, which I have mentioned before is an art to me. Also a release. A high. One of my favorite ones, in fact. I often say to my roommate (one of my best friends), who uses a wheelchair, travels, and won...

Go back and read my previous blog, cause I thought it was lost in the internet and it wasn't, so I tried to do it again and the previous one is better.

It isn't really the same thing as genuine pnp D&D, but considering the fact that I spend the vast majority of my time wandering the American highway system, I tend to get my fix with products like NWN2. I'll be happy to see the next Baldur's Gate, however, which I've heard rumors is in the works.

I'll be sure you're one of the people I inform when/if they come back around. I've been hearing rumblings that Al and company have released their final studio album. Hopefully that will be attended by a final tour.

Haven't played real D&D since I was in the Marines and we had time to kill. Sure, there's computer substitutes these days but its not quite the same. No social aspect to it. I remember some of the knock-offs from when I was even younger. Sci-Fi, Bond, western. Deadwood is certainly an interesting setting.
