And, of course, I didn't have time to get back into the swing of things. I leave in two days. I'll be back next July. When I come back I should return with some possible published pieces under my belt. I'll definately return with stories to tell. But most importantly, I'll come back with an edge that'll guarentee me a...

So, I'm back after a several month long hiatus.

The new place didn't quite work out due to my boss adding in a possible raise for next year. It was meant to help me, but it overqualified me. By $5. This left me in a tough situation and after crashing with friends I found an okay place to stay.

I will, however, be...

As of this week, I should be back. I'm missing SG. I needz mah fix.

Random story to amuse you all.

My friend Kelli met a lot of 'interesting' people online last year. Among them was a guy who did professed his love in that "ZOMG, a girl is talking to me" kind of way, of course after knowing her a week. She was...

I'm going through the expected downturn in SG activity. Not much I can or will do about that. I should be back in force once my new apartment is straightened out. Yes that mess is still going on.

However, once the new place is bought I'm definitely having a housewarming party. A couple local friends are coming, but I'm inviting some SG...

Michael Maggio, my friend who passed, had a memorial service in DC yesterday and it was amazing. Five hundred people came, more or less.

I loved it for stories like this.

Michael was in 8th grade when a 12th grader started beating him up for being a wop. Michael's cousin in the 6th grade saw this and jumped on the 12th grader. Together they...

It did, thank you so much! Angus and I are sending our donation tomorrow, so I'll send you a copy of the story we're submitting soon.

Again, I'm sorry about your friend. I can't imagine that loss.

Well today was interesting. I guess.

I had three people call the law office where I work all sobbing because a significant other has been carted away for deportation proceedings thanks to the new anti-immigrant initiative in VA. We're warning all clients to not only avoid breaking the law, such as one who decided it was smart to walk the streets with a loaded...

Samantha Power does not impress me. I like that Zbigniew Brzezinski (do not tell vermicious_knid he will go ape-shit)

However to lose your job as a foreign policy adviser to Obama just because she called Hillary a "Monster" is ridicules. Hillary (Hillbilly to me) is a monster! It also did not help Power's cause quotes like

"We f***** up in Ohio," she admitted. "In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio's the only place they can win.

The original story.

What are your views about
Colombia targeted killing of Ral Reyes (Luis dgar Devia)?

SPOILERS! (Click to view)
I have no issue with it, it is a good counter-insurgency strategy, and it paid-off with the recovery of several computers


Hugo Chavez's response? Do you think that Hugo Chavez was supporting FARC?

SPOILERS! (Click to view)
It was Chavez's only possible response and a good geo-political move. Chavez supporting FARC is good for both Venezuela and Chavez.



A phone call Venezuelan President Hugo Chvez allegedly made to rebel leader Ral Reyes revealed the location of the guerrilla leader, according to Colombian intelligence reports radio station Radio Cadena Nacional (RCN) disclosed on Wednesday.

I'm going to be fat again after this weekend because Saturday is my birthday and three friends are backing. Teh Kellzorz is makin' me Chocolate Mousse, Kial is making a multiflavored cake with sprinkles and Rin is making me a carrot cake. Like I said, I'll be fat. But it'll be worth it.

I think I have more friends now than I...

Yeah, hopefully the sets will get accepted. They're both sets I've been planning for ages, though, so at least I know I've got good planning on my side!

March first approaches and thus does my birthday approach. I've never really gotten birthdays or their signifigance to most people, but it strikes me as an excellent excuse to round people together for a party of some sort. Keep in mind, my definition of a 'party' is usually a group of ten friends or less meeting up at Dupont Circle or something, hanging out...

I'm pretty sure you can find a StarCraft BattleChest for the same price. But it's not something I've really looked at in a while.

sounds good to me! I don't get to play on Battle.net very often.

I feel the need to do something. Really create again. Really risk something again.

I'm going to start writing more regularly for the newswire. I won't get paid, but it'll give me some good practice. I haven't been published since I was 16, since it's been a while I think I'll put some effort into it and try to...

Last night rocked so much and on so many levels. I got home at 3 AM. But I feel too energized to sleep.

What really made my night was _Margot_ in person. Seriously, you are awesome. I hope to see you again soon.

Edit:
Last night was an Charm City party. It was my first SG event, but it won't be my last.
