    • Happy Birthday Luke!!!

      LukeBdayCake.jpg

      Today is Luke's birthday. And while I couldn't be there to celebrate with him today I was up this weekend to play D&D for his party. Because if you can't be there for someone's birthday the next best thing is to offer a gigantic cake and party a few days early.

      LukeBdayTable.jpg

      It was the first time most of the players had played D&D...and it was the first time I'd ever been a Dungeon Master before. It was a newbie fest, but we had fun thanks to everyone being pretty laid back and the beer and wine were flowing. It also helped that I'd managed to find tiny Halo figures to use as minis for our heroes...because nothing gets a bunch of Halo players excited about math more then being able to have their Spartan duel wield a shotgun and a wizard staff!

      LukeBdayPieces1.jpg

      LukeBdayPieces2.jpg

      The game went on for 8 HOURS! But they did fantastic! Dozens of goblins and guard drakes were slaughtered, they talked their way out of a dragon's lair, they took down the gigantic reanimated corpse of an ogre, and even the Necromancer was no match for this group!

      I had a blast, and I think everyone else did too, and when Luke wasn't desperately role playing as an evil elf trying to get everyone killed he was throwing Magic Missiles around like a pro!

      Also did you see the gigantic cake?

      Anyway happy birthday handsome. I had a fantastic time this too short weekend, and whenever you are ready I'll be there to run your next adventure. smiley12.gif

      Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday. It was a very long, tiring, annoying day and your wishes made it a bit brighter.

      Today is ten millions times better for a bunch of reasons that I don't want to go into because I have this:

      License.jpg

      That is my old and new drivers license, the old from New York and the new from Washington. Yes, I finally updated by license because (from the non-blurred parts you can see) my old one expired on my birthday. However I'm posting it as a meditation on growing older, as you can clearly see from the pictures that I've changed. A lot.

      Mostly because my New York license is really old. The one in the picture was issued in 03, but I've actually had that same picture since I was in High School. See back when I was young NY issued you a permit at 16 if you took the drivers Ed course, then you got your full license at 18, and would reissue one when you turned 21 that was good for frickin' ever. The nice thing is as long as you are just renewing you pay less and you don't have to come in and take a picture, you just send money and a form and get a new license in the mail in a few weeks. So I did that. Until I moved.

      Thus my NY license has a picture on it from 1993, when I was 16 years old. I am now as of yesterday, for those of you who didn't do the math, 34 years old.

      There's nothing important there. It's fun to compare the two...I've lost weight (not just in my hair), I still have the same cheesy grin, and my signature has turned more doctor like as I got older. But in the end it's still me.

      Bit of trivia: in the WA picture I'm wearing my Be A Hero Halo Tshirt, in the NY I'm wearing my Orchard Park High School Marching Band tshirt and jacket. Always a dork at any age. smiley8.gif

      OK, thanks for indulging me on that nostalgia trip. Your repayment is a video clip of an AI falcon fail from the first level of Halo Reach from a failed speed run I did a while back.

      It's Elnea's birthday!!!

      I have known this fine woman for many years. Someone who has been there through some of the biggest, scariest, and most awesome moments of my life. So for her I will sing on YouTube.


      Kinda.

      Happy birthday Elnea. I couldn't have a finer friend to say that to. smiley12.gif

    • A Showstopper...

      Thanks to everyone who participated in and donated to the RT Philly 26 hour podcast podtacular! I had a ton of fun and it was a pleasure to hang for whatever time I had this weekend! It looks like we raised a TON of money, and I'm incredibly excited about the party that will take place in September in Philly!!

      And now for something completely different.

      Have you ever been playing Reach and get a Showstopper by killing someone in the process of performing an assassination....on you?

      It's a strange experience.

      Thanks to everyone who sent me condolences on my car going to the crapper. It'll be in the shop for a week and a half (the parts take that long to get in) and thanks to my parents and my tax return it will be paid for. Also thanks to my boyfriend for helping pay for the rental. It's not my cute little Aveo, but it DOES have heated seats. Which have been nice after long rehearsals.

      But on to happier news! I am going to drown my sorrows over my car with 26 HOURS OF JENGAJAM!! The marathon is upon us...26 hours of podcast excellence starring us and those mad men at TT.TKO, starting at exactly 8pm EST on Friday, April 1st. Check out www.jengajam.net for more info, call in at215-586-4822 or SKYPE: JENGASHIP!!

      The whole 26 hours should be fantastic, but I'll just pimp my corner for a moment. And hour of This Week In Geek! 5am Eastern 2pm Pacitic on April 2nd! Come discuss some of the latest geek news of the day at an ungodly early hour in the morning!! smiley12.gif

      Late Night JengaJam...putting up with missing oboists since 1982!

    • Car took a crap...

      8 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

      The last little while my car has been making a strange humming noise. I thought it was the new tires on awful pavement.

      This past weekend the noise got louder. Then this morning it got NASTY loud, with banging and suddenly my back end felt like it was fishtailing. So now the car is at the shop and I've got a rental VW Beetle (it was the cheapest thing they had, though now I feel like an awful hipster) and I'm sure I'm going to get a call any moment now telling me how I'll be taking out a loan to pay for the fix.

      Not a good Monday.

      See me; I usually end up posting long journals because I like my journals to be stand alone journals. Meaning I want someone who has never read my journal before to be able to know enough about what is going on to enjoy the journal post he has just read.

      And long journals take time to read, which is mean to take up too much of someone’s time.

      And I’m nice!

      And apparently used the word "journal" way too much.

      Wow...I'd start getting everything in writing. That way they can't pull a bait and switch like this in the future.


      No kidding. But if I could nail them down in writing, none of this would be happening. I'm convinced these people don't put things in writing specifically so they can do stuff like this.

      Jerks.

      Does this mean you turned your hand into a candle and now will set your hand on fire?


      No, it means, you put your hand in cold water for about 2 minutes, then stick it in hot wax about 10 times.
      then you have to squeeze your hand out of it, and then you can get it colored...

      Wait....the zombies in the meetings, the zombies in payroll, or the zombies when we play Zombie on Halo?


      The zombies on Urban Dead. smiley1.gif Better than all of the above.

      Except maybe the zombies in Halo... but I wouldn't know. Never played Halo. [/blasphemy]

      Had a great time playing with you on live. I'm glad you could make it. I wish I could have played more/longer but I had to spend time with Katie.

      We watched "The Island," it was pretty good.

      The important thing to know is that the chocolate penises weren't the first time I'd screwed with Eric's coworkers. There was also a guy that wanted to know the return policy for a smushed and mutilated carrot cake, and another one that went batshit crazy about the price of "disgusting" truffles. smiley1.gif

      Sorry...I didn't mean to tell a joke no one should be old enough to hear. But I've been stressed lately and I retreat into raunchy humor when threatened.


      So, if I was to say something like "Dammit OC, if I come over there, you'll be sorry!" then you'd fall back into raunchy humor?

      Hmm... that's a good thing to know. S13.gif
